FOR TODAY... Monday, October 5, 2009
Outside my window... sunny and cool, another lovely fall morning. Morning glories by the front walk are sparse, but still lovely.
I am thinking... about the wonderful time dh and I had this weekend. Marriage Seminar on Friday night, stayed late afterward talking to a couple from our homeschool group who happened to be there, and really hitting it off. I only knew her as an acquaintance before Friday. We now hope to have them over for dinner soon. We watched a few movies over the weekend, sang at church on Sunday as a family. Then last night we did our homework from the marriage seminar and then had some devotions together and prayed... it was a special weekend, though I did not get as much work done as I had wanted.
I am thankful for... my loving dh and our 25 years together so far.
From the learning rooms... workboxes, Explorers, Sarah's Wish, more Young Scholars Guide to Composers, and more...
From the kitchen... dd Rachel supposed to be making some pumpkin stuff for her Homemaker Happenings for next week at their blog Young Homemakers.
I am wearing... blue jumper, red white and blue flower short sleeve top, blue socks and my blue crocks.
I am creating... workbox stuff... need to go to the teacher resource center at the University of Delaware and get some stuff laminated, for FREE!! So I am getting things ready to take, hopefully I don't overlook anything I wanted laminated.
I am going... to the Uof D to laminate, one night this week; and to take Rachel to the specialist on Wed. for her thyroid, which means taking dh to work... early, early am... coming home, doing school with the boys, taking Rachel to the Dr., then depending on the time either coming home and later to pick up dh or going straight to pick him up from the Dr.'s office. One night, maybe Thursday, also supposed to have a date night with dh.
I am reading... Teenage Liberation Handbook by Grace Llewellyn; Home Educationg with Confidence by Rick and Marilyn Boyer; and for Ladies Bible study A Praying Life: Connecting With God in a Distracting World.
I am hoping... to get date nights more regularly with my dh, as he promised, even if it is only a sweet tea or dessert or something.
I am hearing... road noise, kids talking in low tones downstairs
Around the house... workboxes, chores, laundry...
One of my favorite things... time with my dh
A few plans for the rest of the week: workboxes, school, TOS review stuff, wife/mom/daughter/sister stuff
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
