Outside my window; bright blue skies and vibrant sunshine. It is going to be hot but thankfully not humid today. The hydrangea is fading and the rose bush did not weather last week’s hailstorm very well. The deck needs a pick up and to be thoroughly swept. It’s looking like the dog days of summer are upon us.
I am thinking; I prefer the cool breezes of fall and I am looking forward to the golden, russet colors and sweater weather.
I am thankful for; my darling husband who works so hard, provides so well and does it all for us.
From the kitchen; pot roast in the crockpot with little potatoes and baby carrots.
I am creating; a baby. That’s enough for the moment.
I am wearing; white eyelet nightgown and lavendar robe. It’s still quite early and I am putting off the start of the day.
I am reading; When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan by Peggy Noonan. There, now you know, I’m a Reagan conservative.
I am hoping; to finish up the children’s lesson plans this week. I am very close to the end and it’s making me lazy.
I am hearing; Bridgie sitting on my lap with an alphabet book of sorts saying all of her letters; Erin practicing her flute and, if I strain – yup there it is, SpongeBob (bleh).
I am going; bonkers with all of this noise, what happened to the peaceful morning I had ten minutes ago?
Around the house; laundry (sigh…always at the top of the list); clean out the fridge and order groceries for delivery tomorrow; clean off the deck and prune the rose bush in an attempt to save it; freshen up the school room.
One of my favorite things; my fancy new foot bath. This pregnant momma has aching feet.
A few plans for the rest of the week; finish up those lessons plans, fill up the book boxes with new books and put together the Scheuletes; a Cottage gathering; a planning for high school meeting with some moms from the homeschool group (Ryan starts high school NEXT YEAR!).
A picture thought I am sharing with you (its how I get through the day).
