For Today... September 1, 2008
Outside my Window...the sun is going down and it's cooling off, but it was a perfect hot sunny summer day - lovely lovely lovely. My neighbor had a garage sale and she's been cleaning it up. Ooh, she's put some stuff out by the curb - time for treasure hunting! lol I hear a neighbor's dog whining. And the scent of goldenrod is in the air - Ah-choo!
I am thinking... that I'm sad summer is over. But excited about getting back into the routine!
From the learning rooms...a bunch of curriculum for sale in hopes of getting to the tailgate sale tomorrow, if I can get organized.
I am thankful for... my son feeling better (he's been sick the past couple days)
From the kitchen... Subway sandwiches = late lunch - what's for dinner? No idea. No, we didn't grill ANYTHING. Oh, and ingredients are on hand for our First Day of School Ice Cream Sundaes.
I am wearing... khaki capris, red tank top with stars on it, bare (dirty!) feet, and hair untidily pinned up.
I am reading... Mansfield Park by Jane Austen and I Saw the Angel in the Marble by Chris and Ellyn Davis. I just finished an issue of Real Simple magazine and it had the BEST simple recipe for ice cream cake! (I'll go that recipe one better, and use Cool Whip! lol) What else will I read this month? I read TWELVE books in August. Go me! :-)
I am hoping...that none of my other kids get sick this week.
I am creating... a cleaner and more organized home
I am hearing... my son clearing his throat and sniffling, that dog down the street, and the rumble of the fan in the window
Around the house... 2 bags of clothes from the thrift store, several more bags dropped off by a friend, some orphaned laundry items, curtains that need to be ironed and re-hung, and lots lots more....
One of my favorite things... is a whole weekend with NOTHING PLANNED (like the one I just had, and like I won't have again until at least November!)
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... starting our formal lessons, several soccer practices, art class for 2 kids, park day, maybe a visit to the beach while it's still hot, a curriculum sale, and OH there is a concert I'd love to attend!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
It's soccer time!
