Outside my window…6:15 and 59 degrees...feeling pleasantly autumnal! Sun is just tinting the sky pink and peach.
I am thinking…school today! I have "first-day jitters". I am plunging in only half-cocked, as my menu plan is only in place for this week and my lesson plan is still sketchy.
I am thankful for…my friend Marilyn's terrific organizing skills. I have been tagging along behind all her plans and using them to help me to formulate my own. I feel almost incapable of organized thinking lately. I am also thankful for the two awards she has given me, and I hope I can pass these on in time...
From the kitchen...Muffins of some kind and yogurt.
I am creating…Una's sweater. Hoping it will be a Christmas gift. Or that I can get it done before she outgrows it.
I am reading… other than my Bible, I am just looking at books for the kids right now. No time to read on my own.
I am hoping...that this week will go by well and that I can remain loving and calm even when the boys are grumpy about hitting the books again.
I am hearing…the boys, other than Dominic, who will be up in a moment.
A few plans for the rest of the week: my midwife is coming for my 6 week check up today. I am wondering what Gemma weighs. I really have no plans other than to survive the first week of school...
I am praying...for a great school year for us and all homeschoolers. I pray for a spirit of calm and joy in my home. I pray that Bret may continue to work at home. And I pray for my friend Cindy, who has given us the news that she is expecting another baby--number 10! May her pregnancy be blessed.
A Picture Thought: This is Dominic coming back from Mass. Doughnut glaze on his face and a cold in his nose.Now go on to Peggy's and visit other Day-Bookers. Have a blessed week!
