The Simple Woman's Daybook for August 22, 2011

FOR TODAYAugust 22, 2011...

Outside my window... sunny and it was cool this morning but seems to be warming up.

I am thinking... that our first-ever Notice of Intent to homeschool should arrive at the school offices today.

I am thankful... that Jason's parents were able to worship and spend the afternoon with us yesterday.

From the learning rooms... paper mached an Egyptian Death Mask this morning.  And read about bones and muscles.

In the kitchen... I crockpotted the chicken for lunch yesterday then returned the carcass and added water for stock.  I need to do something with that today.

I am wearing... jeans shorts and Buckeye shirt ... 12 days until kickoff!

I am creating... Egyptian Death Mask ... and some Christmas presents (never the twain shall meet!)

I am going... to the library and the pool ... two of my favorites!

I am wondering... at the great love and glory expressed by and for the Trinity.

I am reading... not a lot ... the summer slump is upon me.

I am hoping... the summer slump will go away!

I am looking forward to... football season ... 12 days!

I am hearing... M-girl & N-boy playing SET, R-girl playing cars and otherwise quiet ... the Dishwasher, Washer, and Dryer are done with their chores ...

Around the house... we got our start the day chores done in the 30 minutes assigned to them for the first time ever (the past 3 weeks) this morning! Woo-hoo!

I am pondering... our fall schedule.

One of my favorite things... I'm copying Heather ... Cooks Illustrated ... of course, I introduced it to her, so in a way she's copying me ;)

A few plans for the rest of the week: art projects, map work, individual work, play date? We'll see.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
