Lisa's Logbook - August 1

Outside: 75 and partly sunny. Supposed to be HOT this week

Sounds: Fans, Alice in Wonderland playing in the background

Home: Last week's Cleaning Week was a success. Bob also removed the (broken) swingset and fixed the backyard fence.

Projects: Time to start thinking about curriculum and fall learning. I guess so, anyway.

Pondering: the Outlander musical and wondering if it would be any good....

Teaching: thinking about Bible memory systems - got one you like?

Gratitude: thankful we have a variety and an abundance of food

Recipes: Bob made chocolate chip cookies from a bagged mix and they were DIVINE! I have a cake baking.... in the slow cooker!

Duds: pink tee, jean capris, tan flip flops, touched-up roots

Reads: Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens (I am about 1/2 through Part Two) & Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (also for book club). Skimming through What Clothes Reveal: The Language of Clothing in Colonial and Federal America by Linda Baumgarten

Vids: Dear John (with only half my attention), a little of The Office (boring) and a little of Beowulf and Grendel (only watch if you are a Gerard Butler fan or if you love Beowulf so much you need to see everything ever made about it) & When in Rome (which was pretty good). Oh yeah, and the first episode of MI-5.

Hopes: Still believing in our Miracle.

Love: this week it's HEATH bars. Mmmm.....

Plans: Working 4 hours M-F, Soccer Conditioning (E,J,S), Beach Day, Voting Tuesday, David's 1st soccer practice, maybe getting together with friends, giving everyone here a haircut

Pic: Dear Mom I ded (did) the porck (porch). (I think this is the longest thing Suzy has ever written without being MADE to write.)

I liked Eat Pray Love, I found it rather interesting.
