FOR TODAY April 13, 2009
Outside my window...another bright, beautiful day arrives to the wilds of New Mexico
I am thinking...that Easter is the best of all holidays. HE is RISEN...He is risen, INDEED!
I am thankful for...a house that's becoming a home as we unpack and organise, a hubby that works so hard not to just support us but to love us so well, and many children to keep me young (and tired...LOL)
From the learning rooms...back to the books this week after TOO many days of spring break. Aleks math on the computer, books to read to selves and aloud, and the worksheets IF I can find the right box.
From the kitchen...Bread is rising to be ready by lunchtime, and taco soup for dinner
I am wearing...work out clothes because I figure that running up and down stairs and lugging boxes count as a work out...LOL
I am creating...this blog, an orderly house (someday!) and happy healthy boys that now have plenty of room to roam!
I am going...to work, and that's about it for today, hurray!
I am reading...Cassidy by Lori Wick, the Love Dare, the New Testament in 90 days (fell behind a bit with the move so I should finish that up this week) and catching up on all my friends' blogs
I am hoping...that by the end of the week, we will be totally settled....my fingers are crossed!
I am hearing...Derek asking for more Easter Candy (thank you Jodi!) the fish tank gurgling and the dirt bike zipping past the window as David practices jumping the ramps Dan built for him...YIKES! Have I ever mentioned that mothering boys is NOT for the faint of heart??
Around the house...laundry is waiting to be folded, bread needs to get to it's second rising, 3 boxes left in the MB, all the boxes from the bathrooms need to find a home since there is NO storage in the bathroom, and I need to make a top 10 favorite songs of all time list, per my boss's request.
One of my favorite things...hot tea and a good book on a quiet morning
A few plans for the rest of the week: making this house turn into a home...getting there slowly but surely. With Dan not working in Hurley this week, that will help me get it done faster. He is such a great motivator!
Here is picture thought I am sharing...Did I even take any pictures this week?? Let me see.....oh yes, here's one of the dog with bunny ears on...On my we are silly sometimes...hee hee!
