Lisa's Logbook - August 15

Outside: 84, humid, and rumbles of thunder in the distance (this was in the afternoon)

Sounds: James and Emily discussing some toys, radio playing in the background, and always the hum of fans!!

Home: David built me another computer - a desktop for the kids to use for lessons.

Projects: no current projects other than planning for camping and working on lessons

Pondering: everything, really

Teaching: Need to choose some literature selections, but other than that, I've decided on most all of the curriculum we will be using. Time to put together some plans.

Gratitude: a pleasant friendly service at a friend's church this morning

Recipes: This fell by the wayside this past week - too HOT to cook.

Duds: jean shorts, pink and white tank top, bare feet

Reads: Still have What Clothes Reveal: The Language of Clothing in Colonial and Federal America by Linda Baumgarten (SO interesting!!!) and also reading Beachcombers by Nancy Thayer (OK, since I started this post, I finished Beachcombers and am now reading the new Anne Lamott novel - Imperfect Birds.)

Vids: the last few episodes of Eli Stone (pouting that it was canceled and there were only 2 seasons), Bridget Jones' Diary, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, The Proposal (movie night with my peeps!)

Hopes: wishing for more family time building relationships

Love: seeing bats flying in the twilight (knowing they are eating mosquitos!)

Plans: Working 5 hours M-F, Soccer practices (D,E,J), two Beach Days (one at Lake Huron), Book Club

Pic: James got serious about roasting his huge marshmallow.

Nice to have a handy kid around to build computers! I am fond of anything that eats mosquitos too, even bats.
