Daybook October 4, 2010

FOR TODAY - Monday October 4, 2010

Outside my window... dark. I never have time when it's light outside to blog. This question starts to feel redundant.

I am thinking... that I'm sad to hear that Lone Star was canceled after just 2 REALLY good episodes. Bummer.

I am thankful for... the timer on my oven. I can put dinner in the oven... set the timer... go off and have fun and then come home to dinner all ready. If you have a timer on your oven, do you use it?

From the learning rooms... we are hunting animals with a camera. Grom's learning classification of animals. I have a zoo trip and farm trip planned. I'm pretty excited. Moo!

From the kitchen... yummy, yummy Meatball Goodness (at least that's what my sister called it). I created a new recipe. I'm going to make it one more time and then I'll share it here.

I am wearing... my "cold weather" uniform... black pants, black socks, red tee, loafers

I am creating... nothing. I've got to get into my studio and get it organized and decluttered. I've got a bunch of stuff I want to do... starting with a curtain for our bedroom.

I am going... to work on getting more sleep. I can't keep going to bed so late and getting up so early.

I am reading... Crazy Love by Francis Chan

I am hoping... I can keep up with my gym routine. I've been going MWF for the past week and a half. One day at a time... right? I've been 7 times in a row. Which is 7 more times than ever before.

I am hearing... I'm watching Chuck while I blog.

Around the house... I'm looking for a corner bench for in our entry hall. It's has been frustrating. I can find exactly what I want online, but no one is actually selling them. I am not giving up.

One of my favorite things... I need to create a running list of my favorite things. I forget what I've written about before. I'll have to go back and look since I always seem to default to food. I've had some great peaches lately.

Vocabulary word of the week:
amok - (adv.): in a murderously frenzied state, in a violently raging manner; in an undisciplined, uncontrolled, or faulty manner
synonyms: berserk
used in a sentence: Grom should not be allowed to run amok, except maybe outside.

A few plans for the rest of the week: It's a busy week. I need to help SK find pants to wear to the Homecoming Dance. Soccer, soccer, soccer, soccer and some more soccer - but I refuse to be a soccer mom. More trips to the gym, Kids Club, a Servant Dinner, visit the Zoo, visit a Farm, my parents anniversary, and a half a dozen other things that aren't coming to mind right now.

Here is picture I am sharing...Recognize this water bottle? Somebody left it at my house. I can tell it's a well loved wb that wants to go home.

How you can be praying for me and mine... Surferman is working on a couple of new ideas. Communication is often an issue for us. Pray that we would find time to sync and connect. Grom has a problem we're working on - patience and dilligence. SK is starting practice for Varsity Soccer. It would be great if he made the team.
