I am thinking. . . I am all alone in the house with the
children for the first time in months. No workmen, no guests, just us.
I am thankful for. . . all of the friends who have been bringing us
meals. Every evening at 5:00 p.m. for the last three weeks a hot meal has
arrived here at the Bonny Blue House. I
may have actually forgotten how to turn on my oven J.
From the schoolroom. . . We are actually in a good place school wise.
I want to focus on making Valentines and doing a little Abe Lincoln lesson with
the younger kids this week.
From the kitchen. . . Kevin has been begging for
cheeseburgers so cheeseburgers it is.
I am wearing. . . Grey turtleneck, jeans, brown loafers, no socks
which might explain why I am freezing and need a black pashmina to ward off the
I am going. . .The older five kids have dental check-ups this
afternoon. It will be my first outing with all eight children.
I am reading. . . Once a Month Cooking. I am looking forward to
getting back in the kitchen.
I am hoping. . .That no one has a cavity.
I am hearing. . . The dishwasher humming, Brendan coo-ing.
Around the house. . . All of the furniture is in the house and all
that remains in storage are some books and clothes. Actually a lot of books and
clothes. Today the cleaning lady is supposed to come and get things in better
shape, spackle dust is driving me crazy. I no sooner clean it up than it
magically appears again. I am told this can continue for months. I need to go
to the blind store and order blinds for the new windows and curtain rods as
One of my favorite things. . . My new
coffee pot. The coffee is rich and piping hot.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . . Irish dance,
guitar lessons, Valentine prep, and a Christening to plan!!!
