Outside my window....Beautiful sunshine, breezy day
I am thankful for...being able to home school my children and be at home most of the time with them; and now have a job that I am also able to do from home
I am thinking about...a few special moms that helped mentor me in both home schooling, my faith, and religious education; without them paving the way and offering guidance I would not be where I am today.
Learning all the time...I am learning more algebra and way more Latin than I ever imagined :) And I am learning that people really do hold grudges – forever, which is such a shame. I have also learned this last summer to never say never….you just never know what God has in store for you.
From the kitchen....nothing much at the moment, but thinking about dinner; we moved our fast from meat to Wednesdays where it works with our family better (and still includes a legit fast day per Christian Orthodox teaching)..So today may bring a meat dinner, but I haven’t even thought that far ahead yet.
I am creating...more comfort, peace and a gentle learning environment at home and in the bible study my husband and I will oversee next month
I am working on...My Lego information for my classes at co-op; my music selection for the music I teach there also; and an order list for crafts
I am going...to the library later for my son’s Algebra enrichment course
I am hoping...for more sleep
I am reading...mostly my lesson plans and encouragement, and my daughter’s college guidebook for certification, on writing tutors (she is now a nationally certified writing tutor, in both written and oral communication).
I am praying for...healing in mind and soul; and for many friends who need prayers
I am hearing...a lot of crickets and birds outside….and the light hum of the floor fan
Around the house...I pretty much see a mess here and there
One of my favorite things...Waking up in the morning to sitting in bed, sipping my coffee and having my devotional “me” time before I get into the mix of the day
A few plans for the rest of the week...The weekend will bring work at church, having to go in an organize PSR resources/items on Saturday…drop off sign –up sheets in the church gathering spaces; preparing for catechetical Sunday recognition, so checking on certificates and my church mail that comes. Then, Monday brings a therapy appointment for one, son, Tuesday brings another son’s birthday, and Wednesday brings my mother’s birthday; Thursday brings the start of our new local co-op, and Sunday brings the blessing of our 25th wedding anniversary and dinner out together.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...very silly, but it made me smile :)
