Simply Monday - August 18th

for today...

outside my window - it is another beautiful sunny day. they days have been a bit cooler lately and i am loving that.

i am thinking - i put a load of laundry in but i don't hear the machine going. better go check...ok, everything is running just as it should. i guess in addition to my mind i'm also losing my hearing.

i am thankful for - our homeschool ice cream social yesterday attended by so many wonderful families.

from the kitchen - nothing at the present moment but later this week there will be much boiling and freezing of sweet corn and chopping and canning of tomato sauce going on.

i am wearing - aqua tshirt and black capris.

i am reading - nothing at the present time. that's just sad. i'll have to pick something up today. we've been so busy with other things around here that i haven't had a moment to stop.

i am hoping - that the schedule for this week stays uncluttered so i can stay focused. we don't have too much going on this week, especially in the evenings, so hopefully i can get all my rosaries and jewelry done for the festival that is coming up. i just pray that they sell. :)

i am hearing - now i'm finally hearing the washer on the spin cycle. maybe my hearing is only partially gone. i'm supposed to be hearing my oldest dd practicing irish step dance downstairs. i don't hear the familiar, thud, thud, thud, so either she went all the way to the basement or she isn't doing what she is supposed to. i'll let you pick.

around the house - the first load of laundry is half through it's cycle and there are one or two left to go. the living room needs a major tidy after garage sale finds were left on the couch and various other bags that people took places this weekend were left deposited in various chairs. i need to finish cleaning out the garage so that we can come in through the other door...where the coat closet is...and people stop using the living room for a junk repository.

one of my favorite things - is our schedule of lessons and outside classes falling into place for the school year.

a few plans for the rest of the week - get the kids projects for the fair in line and drop them off this evening, find three more people to take spanish and get the first few weeks of lesson planning done...oh, and all that crazy beading. how could i forget?

here is a picture thought i am sharing with you...

now hop on over to peggy's to be linked up with all the other day books.

Okay, that pic is just too cute! What a doll.

I'd say your dancer went all the way downstairs!! Bwahahahaha. Yep, and my girls are perfect and are making the BEST choices at the moment. Yep, yep!

I agree. I'd go for an uncluttered week. Or month. Sounds great. Hope you get it all done and all your beadwork sells OUT!!! Isn't that a crafter's dream?

Your Little Miss in the Pink is adorable! Isn't an Ice Cream Social the best way to kick off a new school year? We held one in conjunction with a Project Fair showcasing the students' work in the previous year and it was a big hit!

Have a great week.
