Outside my window…5:57 and 70 degrees. Certain to be another balmy, rainy day.
I am thinking…about this week. I need to look at my plan for the first 6 weeks of school and see how we are doing. I fear that we are not where I had hoped to be, but I may just have to lower my expectations (a better plan than panicking and driving my poor kids nuts!)
I am thankful for…a decent sleep last night, although I had to let poor Gemma cry awhile to get it.
From the kitchen...French toast and mandarin oranges (What, no muffins???)
I am creating…Una's sweater. Hope to finish the left front this week, but I haven't time to knit much on week days/
I am reading… other than my Bible, not much. As always, I've a stack of books I want to read, but no time for reading other than what I need to for school.
I am hoping...for an end to this dreadful rain! We've had it for over a week, and the forecast doesn't show anything else in the week ahead! Normally I love the rain, but having a houseful of kids day after day does alter my feelings about it.
I am hearing…nothing. Just insects and birds. Oh, what peace before the daily storm!
A few plans for the rest of the week: I didn't get to do my yogurt and granola last week, so I hope to find time to do it this week. I have a lot of correspondence to try to squeeze in, too. And I want to begin to plan for the holidays. I need to start list-making!
I am praying...for my dad, who is having a number of personal problems on top of his severe health problems. For my dear sister and for my dear friend Cindy, both of whom are expecting, that their pregnancies are smooth and easy. For Bret to be able to find more work and continue to work at home.
A Picture Thought: Adrian loves Gemma to the point of sometimes really getting on her nerves. I asked him, "When she gets bigger, will you be her knight in shining armor?" He replied flatly, "No. She won't be little and cute anymore."Now visit Peggy to read some more Daybook entries, and have a blessed week!
