Tuesday's Daybook


A Happy Birthday to our friend, James.  We Love You!

Outside my window...
it is cold and has just stopped raining. 

I am thinking...
that I am tired of the cold and rain.

I am thankful for...
good friends I can call at ten o'clock in the evening for a bucket of wheat because of bad planning on my part - and they don't mind.

From the learning rooms...
we are studying Cephalopods this week in Apologia's Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day.  They are a variety of amazing creatures that can have three hearts that pump blue blood, can make their own ink, and can be powered by jet propulsion.

From the kitchen...
Bread bowls (here) and beef stroganoff for Men's Bible Study tonight.  Side by side in the kitchen with my Shelby - one of my favorite places to be.

I am creating...
I do not like to make lists.  I have fought the fact for years now that I should make lists.  Makes me feel old and incapable to have to write things down.  I know it's silly, lists are so much more than a memory issue, but it is one of my many neurosis'.  I do like to write and doodle, and the idea of pasting makes me feel young, so starting this week I am trying this idea from Ann at Holy Experience.  I really am more of the used envelope kind of gal, but if this can become a habit I know I will enjoy it.  Twenty-one days, that's all it takes.  Today is day two.  Wish me luck. 

I am going...
no where today.  He's Too Good To Me accidently left with the carseat this morning.  I'm cancelling piano and a doctor's appointment for today.  Actually, I'm pretty grateful for this little mess-up, I have three batches of bread to make.

I am reading...
Green by Ted Dekker

I am hoping...
it's unspoken this week, but I'm really hoping.

I am hearing...
Calliou on the TV, the bread machine, Delia and Shelby getting ready to leave for the day, and Izzy practicing the piano.

Around the house...
the sweet music of above.

One of my favorite things...
friends who think of me and call to see if I need an old pair of cleats for Izzy - which I do.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
we will continue to work on Izzy's quilted wall hanging, we have Book-It on Wednesday, and co-op on Friday.  Housework this week is a must

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing:

Izzy won an attendance competition at our church Friday night during a magic show featuring the great Scott Humston.  She won this T-shirt -




On the front it says Don't Touch the Candy Cane! . . .

and on the back it says You Don't Know Where It's Been! OBEDIENCE . . . it's still hip! www. SCOTTHUMSTON.com

He did an adorable puppet show presentation on obedience.  Check him out.

Book-It??? Y'all are planning to come to book-it? Is this ours or something I've missed? I hope it is ours!

The kids haven't stopped talking about the show on Friday ... it must have been really good.

Greg and Donna said...

have fun at book-it tomorrow. We will miss you at quilting!

I love reading everyone's daybook posts - I just CANNOT seem to get them done early in the week! Shelby's cake was BEAUTIFUL! She is so talented!

Take care!
