FOR TODAY September 15, 2008…
Outside My Window… It is very sunny with some big clouds in the distance. The birds are combing the yard for breakfast and I can see that I need to refill my feeders.
I am thinking… I’m so glad September is here with it’s clear blue days and friendlier temperatures. Having spent much of my childhood in the midwest, I miss those clear, blue skies.
I am thankful for… seasons. I love the changing of seasons, although this begins my favorite time of year. I thank God that He gives us audience to his brilliant and supernaturally creative work in the changing seasons.
I am also thankful for the many Christian friends that God has given me, who love me just as I am, and support & encourage me when I so need it.
From the learning rooms … I am stifling my groans when it comes time for Shurley Grammar. Bull, 12, loves to read and I have to keep him from devouring an entire history textbook and stick to the lesson at hand. It is BJU World Studies, in case you wanted to know what history text could so capture a young boy’s mind. Bear is gettin’ down and whittling away at his math drill time. Give that boy a clearly defined, measurable goal and he’s all over it!
From the kitchen… coffee and bacon. Who knows what else?
I am wearing… a hot pink tank and a faded blue denim skirt.
I am creating… I am back to work on a promised afghan for my nephew.
I am going… to piano lessons, taekwondo, and a revival meeting.
I am reading… the ever lovely Shurley English 7 Teacher’s Manual.
I am hoping… I am praying that I keep a sweet spirit w/my sons this week as we persevere with our new curriculum choices & rigorous schedule.
I am hearing… the flipping of pages and the pencil to paper sound.
Around the house… the usual maintenance housekeeping stuff today.
One of my favorite things… Greeting my husband at the door when he comes home from work. I have always loved this moment….just to see his face.
