Outside my window…already 79 degrees (about as warm as I like it) at 5:42 a.m. Looks hazy out.
I am thinking…the cookout at my sister's yesterday. She had the lawn sprinkler going and two kiddie pools filled, and the kids had a blast. I did hardly anything. The food was great and the company was great.
I am thankful for…homeschooling. Not just because I want my kids to be unaffected by the prevalent culture, but because they are growing so fast, and I want to have them with me as much as possible before they go off to forge their own lives.
From the kitchen...Blueberry muffins and canteloupe.
I am creating…still on the wool soaker. It is much bigger than I had thought it would be. May not fit Gemma for a year!
I am reading… The Splendor of Sorrow. Wonderful meditations on the Seven Sorrows of our Blessed Mother. Only $2.00 from Sophia Institute Press, and I highly recommend it!
I am hoping…More work to come in for Bret. He is installing the altar at St. Helen's today, and there isn't much work following it.
I am hearing…birds. And Nuala's cowbell as she chews. Kids are amazingly all asleep.
A few plans for the rest of the week…haircuts for Bret and the boys, meals for the freezer, washing of new cloth diapers (they should be here in a day or two) and lesson plan forms drawn up, as the ones available online just don't work for me. I need to customize them.
The children are...asleep. And looking forward to watching a couple of videos they borrowed from their aunt.
A Picture Thought: Adrian was completely wiped out after an afternoon of sun and water. He fell asleep thus while watching a cartoon video.Visit Peggy at the Simple Woman for more Daybook entries.
