Daybook March 16, 2009

FOR TODAY, Monday March 16, 2009...

Outside My Window... the sun is glaring off the ocean. I can't tell where water stops and sky starts.

I am thinking... about change and submission and family and relationships and...

I am thankful for... new jobs. Surferman officially started today. It's weird not having him around the house.

From the kitchen... Roasted Beet Salad (using those CSA veggies... yay Robin!)

From the schoolroom... Mike Mulligan. We need to finish it up this week.

I am wearing... flip flops, black pants and a floral print top

I am creating... Resurrection Eggs with Mommy and Me this week. I love celebrating the resurrection of my Lord. I also have some quilt projects going and there is always a washcloth on my knitting needles.

I am going... to try to be diligent about working Autofocus for my to-do list. Right now I have 2 notebooks going... one for my to do list and one for notes. I think I need to get it down to one book and divide it somehow. I'm always chasing the elusive system that will make me more productive.

I am reading... Animal Farm and the next Elm Creek Quilters book, Cross Country Quilters.

I am hoping... to figure out how to sync mail between my mac and my iPhone. I've got one account done, now I have to tackle my work account.

I am hearing... boys playing. Grom's best buddy is over. They play so well together. I only have to referee every so often.

Around the house...
One of my favorite things... when Surferman washes my car. It's even better when he blows out the inside. And it's the best when he wipes the dash and cleans the windows too. He did all three yesterday!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I get to go to a Pampered Chef party! I have a computer lesson at the Apple Store. Grom's last week of soccer (for now). And maybe a SuperSized Fabulous Fun Friday. We might adventure to the Train Wreck Store (Grocery Outlet) and stock up the pantry. And there is always laundry...

Here is picture I am sharing...Grom and Eli's barn. It's filled with animals and lego people. It was an exercise in cooperation and design. Grom wanted to play with legos. Eli wanted to play with animals. I think it turned out great.

How you can be praying for me and mine... Pray for Surferman as he settles into his new job. Pray for Grom as he gets used to having his Daddy around less. Pray for me... that I'd turn off the TV and close the computer when I should. Please also pray for my Aunt Sandi and her family. She is undergoing medical tests and they suspect she might have a brain tumor.
