Simply Monday - March 30th
outside my window - it's dark and it sounds like it's pretty windy. we had a big ol' storm yesterday with golf ball sized hail. i managed to get the van in the garage but not before it took a few minute chips to the paint.
i am thinking - of a good friend of mine who at final check was in labor last night. i am hoping and praying that the night was a productive one and that she is resting comfortably with her new little bundle of joy this morning.
from the learning rooms - we're getting by. enough said.
i am thankful for - the fact that the really nasty storm didn't turn into something alot nastier...like a tornado. there were a few funnel cloud sightings around here but nothing confirmed and that is a blessing.
from the kitchen - there needs to be a menu plan being put together quickly. i can't stand it when i start monday without one.
i am wearing - the workout clothes and not in a spunky, creative mood to come up with something better.
i am reading - a children's book called "kenny and the dragon" to see if it's any sort of fair for my oldest to read. she reads so fast and so much that it's almost impossible to furnish a continuous stream of good books for her.
i am hoping - for good weather today...to dry up the swamp of a yard we have courtesy of all the rain we have been getting. i went out to put some fertilizer on it yesterday and it was just squish, squish, squish and i certainly "enjoyed" feeling the mud splatter up the back of my pants.
i am creating - two quilt blocks and two easter dresses. considering next week is holy week, i'm thinking the dresses might need to come first. sorry girls. but really. the quilt blocks are already so late as it is...what's another few weeks right?
i am hearing - relative quiet except my dh trying to rouse the kids. but they haven't woke up enough yet to groan and complain...so i can still enjoy the quiet for a few more minutes.
around the house - there is tidying to be done and laundry of course.
one of my favorite things - is the Holy Thursday liturgy...and it's coming fast.
a few plans for the rest of the week - sewing, hopefully visiting my new goddaughter, a book sale with the homeschool group and a meeting for new and interested homeschoolers. mix that in with the regular school week activities and stir.
here is a picture thought i am sharing with you -my little monkeys climbing in a tree.
make sure to stop by the other daybook entries all linked together in a snappy little package over at peggy's.
