FOR TODAY: Thursday, August 26, 2010
He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from calamity. Proverbs 21: 20
(Oh, how I have a lot of work to do to accomplish this verse.)
Outside my window... it is beautiful. Sunny. Colorado clear blue skies even though I am in Indiana. Our new neighborhood lacks a real woods, yet I hear lots of bugs and birds. One of my favorite sites of the day – the mail truck just went by.
I am thinking... that having two children is much easier than three. I am going to be in for a surprise when #4 comes along in the next few weeks. I am also thinking how blessed I have to have such a wonderful family that throws me a beautiful baby shower (and for all of the ladies who came or even considered coming!).
I am thankful for... a refrigerator that supplies me with endless ice. I am grateful that tomorrow I may very well may have some more English Muffins. I am also thankful for hand-me-down composters from parents and for a friend with a large vehicle who transported my dirt producing container home.
From the learning rooms... school was accomplished quickly before Mr. Smackdown left for a fun overnight at Mama’s house. Him being gone allowed Sir Honey and I to work together the whole morning on his workboxes without him becoming frustrated. And the school room is . . . messy.
From the kitchen... yogurt is being made and I am attempting to turn soy milk into kefir. (Don’t worry . . . I know that many of you know that I am anti-soy . . . it is in our house for only a season). Lord willing I will be bringing some Farmer’s Market fruit into our kitchen tonight and making teriyaki chicken with local corn on the cob.
I am creating... work (still) for my blog designer, Jessica of The Frilly Coconut, to create tabs and a pull down menu to clean up my blog and make it easier to navigate. Also, I am getting ready to sew my new Baby Girl’s sling!
I am going... to try to go to bed earlier. Also, I would like to laminate some more, hang an alphabet up in the school room, create a Brown Bear Lapbook, and cut some other things out.
I am reading… the Bible and Mansfield Park.
I am hoping... that I will actually get a good night’s sleep tonight and accomplish something before I get that great night’s sleep. I am also hoping that I get my birth tub EARLY. Like tomorrow.
I am hearing... Sir Honey ask A LOT of questions and a chain saw dicing a tree.
Around the house...the floors need to be swept and mopped. There is laundry to be folded. And all of my essential oils are spread all over our bedroom. But I am not bothered by most of this. It is bright.
One of my favorite things...chocolate ice cream with peanut butter chopped up into it.
A few plans for the rest of the week: have chai with a friend tomorrow to learn about how I can help her minister to youth, going to Lowes, a soccer game,and the symphony.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
Going out to the compost container for the first time, Sir Honey was anxious to assist me since Mr. Smackdown was gone.
