FOR TODAY Monday December 6, 2010
Outside my window... nothing has changed... it's dark. Today was a nice day. Very typical weather. Kinda cool, but not. Long pants weather, but Grom was fine in shorts and flip flops.
I am thinking... that I have other things I could be doing, but that I feel like I've been neglecting my blog, so here I am. I like blogging. I'm also feeling a little frumpy. I feel a challenge coming on. Any frumps out there that want to join me?
I am thankful for... free movies from Redbox that I can get to bless Surferman.
From the learning rooms... Today was an independent study day (no school). Grom did some iPad learning (someday I'll write a post with all the best educational aps I've found) and then a worksheet on telling time. We're short science for this learning period. I want to do something with leaves. And I'm still really unclear on what Social Studies are. Anyone have a really clear explanation?
From the kitchen... my mom made the most delicious cassoulet for dinner. It was fabulous and I'm really happy that there is a second casserole tucked away in the freezer for another meal. YUMMERS!
I am wearing... jeans, beet ribbed long sleeved tee with a black tank top for modesty
I am creating... to do lists. I don't think that counts.
I am going... to start heading to bed in 7 minutes. maybe...
I am reading... magazines. I have quite a pile of unread magazines. I just read about preparing a perfect Thanksgiving dinner. At the rate I'm going, I'll be getting organization tips for Christmas at Valentine's Day.
I am hoping... to get my Christmas shopping done soon.
I am hearing... the happy chime of my iPhone telling me that it's my turn for a "Words with Friends" game.
Around the house... our kitchen designer came by to take "after" pictures of our kitchen. We cleared off the refrigerator for the photos. It looks nice and blank. It might stay that way for a while.
One of my favorite things... my small silver hoop earrings that don't have to come out of my ears. They are very comfortable and versatile however boring they might be. I do need to change them up a little more often than I do.
Vocabulary word of the week:
bumbershoot - (noun): umbrella, parasolused in a sentence: It rains so little here that I'd rather get wet than drag around a bumbershoot.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Gogo has a couple of local soccer games, some usual stuff, Night in Bethlehem, dinner with quilting friends. It's busy, but I like it. I'm trying to keep a few nights for at home.
Here is picture I am sharing...My friend's youngest... Isn't that the cutest reindeer you've seen this season?
How you can be praying for me and mine... Communication! It's easy for everyone to get going in multiple directions and for chaos to result.
