Outside: 81 and beautiful blue skies with fluffy white clouds
Sounds: Christian radio playing softly, fans humming
Home: This is Cleaning Week. Or so I keep threatening. We shall see if it materializes.
Projects: Soccer - making teams and ordering uniforms - ok, I know I keep saying this and one day I will actually DO it.
Pondering: why we don't do more things just as a family - all 6 of us. Also pondering ways to afford more travel in the next three years, before one of my children graduates from HIGH SCHOOL!
Teaching: buying a used IEW SICC-B (advanced writing curriculum for David and maybe Emily) next week after needing it for a year.
Gratitude: that we live only an hour from one of the Great Lakes. We should take advantage of it more often, as we did today.
Recipes: Threw a cut-up chicken in the slow cooker with some taco seasoning and had chicken tacos Friday. Gonna serve that again tonight for dinner.
Duds: brown tee (different from last week), jean capris, bare feet, wet hair (since just about half an hour ago I was wearing my swimsuit and SAND)
Reads: Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens (downloaded the audiobook free from Librivox) & just finished The Passion of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland (enjoyed it!)
Vids: Little Dorrit (the 1st seven episodes from Masterpiece Theater), Yes Man (re-viewed), and 2012 (do not bother - so dumb)
Hopes: A Miracle is coming. I can feel it. Bring it on, Lord!
Love: smooth stones (just picked up quite a few at Lake Huron)
Plans: Working 4 hours M-F, Soccer Conditioning (E), Soccer VBS (J,S), a few other possibilities
