Daybook August 25, 2009

FOR TODAY... Tuesday August 25, 2009

Outside My Window... it's late, so it's dark.

I am thinking... about going to bed. I'm yawny.

I am thankful for... tuberose. My mom bought me a bouquet almost two weeks ago and they are still smelling up my studio. I wore tuberose in my hair so their odor brings back fond memories.

From the kitchen... a really yummy tuna noodle casserole. I can't remember the last time I made it. Grom liked it. We may be having it more often.

From the schoolroom... Our FIAR book this week is The Glorious Flight. We are reading about the history and pioneers of aviation.

I am wearing... black pants and my lemon yellow Power Lab VBS t-shirt from last year. We didn't get shirts this year... bummer.

I am creating... hopefully some earrings. I'm learning how to wire wrap tomorrow. I'm very excited.

I am going... to put Grom on the school bus tomorrow and then secretly follow him to school to make sure he makes it to his classroom. I feel like a dork, but at least I'll be at peace.

I am reading... Wrapped in Rain by Charles Martin. I'm finally almost done.

I am hoping... to get our freezer and pantry cleaned out a bit in the next couple of weeks. I think I've said this before (maybe a few times), but it really needs to be done.

I am hearing... Surferman shredding. Unfortunately for him, it's papers and not waves.

Around the house... trying to settle back into routines. As I speak lunches are ready for tomorrow in the fridge and the coffee pots are ready to go first thing.

One of my favorite things... my nine year old Honda Odyssey. We've been some great places together. It's reliable, roomy and handy.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Lunch and Park with friends, Grand Opening to show off the remodel at Grom's new school, Grom's first "real" gymnastics class, Farmer's Market, Parents Night Out = Date Night with Surferman and other fun stuff. I have a bunch of phone calls to make.

Here is picture I am sharing...My pirates!

How you can be praying for me and mine... My time with the Lord has been sporadic and unfocused. Pray I would have sweet times with my Lord in His Word. We are settling into a new schedule. I'm good at filling up time... let it be productive and for His glory.

  1. Wow, where did the time go? I can't believe Grom is in school already! My granddaughter turned 5 last month and started school earlier this month. It seems like yesterday they were born.


  2. I also love Tuberose! That is wonderful that you have those in your home! I am SOOOOO excited for Grom to have his first day of school! I can't wait to hear about it1
