Daybook February 16, 2009

FOR TODAY... Monday February 16, 2009

Outside My Window... dark, windy, cold, blustery... yay! winter is finally here!

I am thinking... there is so much that I want to do, need to do, have to do.

I am thankful for... family, safe travel and that I took a 4 year old to Vegas and not a 14 year old. AND that good friends finally have a baby boy to adopt.

From the kitchen... yummy macaroni and cheese. Grom said it was almost as good as the Mac N Cheese at his favorite restaurant. We also had brussels sprouts. I love brussels sprouts.

From the schoolroom... We started "playing" ("learning") with Funtastic Frogs. Math was never so much fun. I need to do some planning and get FIAR going... this week.

I am wearing... Jeans, sneakers, grey sweater and fuchsia pink shirt.

I am creating... I need a new project. I have a bunch of blogging to do and I have a bunch of babies coming into my life. I need some time to regroup and refocus.

I am going... to try a new time management system - Autofocus. It can't hurt.

I am reading... Embrace Me by Lisa Samson. I need to keep on with Shepherding Your Child's Heart. I'm in a fiction reading mood.

I am hoping... Grom has a great day at school tomorrow. He has missed a lot lately due to school holidays, a cold and our trip to Vegas.

I am hearing... rain, rain and more rain.

Around the house... I made homemade laundry soap a couple of weeks ago. It smells wonderful... lavendar essential oils, and it seems to be doing a good job of getting the clothes clean.

One of my favorite things... the library. I can "shop" online and show up at my convenience and there the books are sitting on the reserve shelf waiting for me. I can find most anything I want.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Nothing exciting, but always busy.

Here is picture I am sharing...
