FOR TODAY January 12, 2009...
Outside my window... gray skies, drizzle, the bare brown branches of my little maple
I am thinking...about my menus for the week
I am thankful for...my husband and his hard work - two jobs so I can stay home with the kids
From the learning rooms...starting our unit on the War of 1812 and amphibians
From the kitchen... homemade vanilla yogurt culturing - 4 quarts this time since we ran out last week
I am wearing...soft corduroys and soft green sweater, beat-up slippers (I think there's a hole in the toe - one feels funny)
I am creating...just working on my blanket
I am going...to Costco with my hubby for a date - and the fill up the pantry
I am reading...Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith - really cute book - a relaxing read
I am hoping...to get back to exercising this week
I am hearing...A Mr. Monk dvd playing in the living room - my son gave me a series for Christmas. It's a fun show.
Around the house...Still working on that laundry pile - I'm thinking that I need to get some new houseplants - maybe a flowering violet to cheer up the place on these gray days
One of my favorite things...Squealing babies!!! Esther has discovered her voice!
A few plans for the rest of the week...the big guys have a snow retreat with church this weekend - I'm sure that will involve several errands with me as the taxi driver.
Here is picture thought I am sharing: Sam wasn't to sure about the lavender smell when we picked from this field this summer - but I can say I sure enjoy the scent now in my room from my dried flowers. :0)
