FOR TODAY July 13, 2009
Outside my window... it is HOT, HOT and more HOT...phew
I am thinking... that my head hurts because I have my hair pulled too tight. And on a deeper level, that I need to get back to being a Mary instead of a Martha...no more pity parties for me
I am thankful for... much! Life, liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness, real joy, faith, family, good books, and a good grilled cheese on homemade whole wheat...YUM~O
From the learning rooms... nothing except a Trip to the library later this week
From the kitchen… bread is rising, lunch is in the making, and the meal plans for the week are as follows
- Monday:Red beans and rice
- Tuesday: Tilapia, parsley noodles and broccoli
- Wednesday:Taco soup and grilled cheese
- Thursday: Split pea soup
- Friday: Homemade pizza
- Saturday: Burgers on the grill, pasta salad and chips
- Stuffed chicken breasts...sides to be announced later...LOL
I am wearing… Ugly khaki capris and a bleach stained t~shirt...working in the back room today and it's gonna get ugly...LOL
I am creating… A clean home, an organized school section, a play room that is usable and a happy Good Will store : )
I am going... to the library, to work and the Good Will store at least once more! Groceries on Friday and Church on Sunday
I am reading... Nothing yet this week...sigh
I am hoping... that all my plans work out for this week~ SO want to get the house organized...tired of the mess
I am hearing... David making lunch, the two goofies at the table crunching their water bottles, Titus protesting as Jodi wipes his runny nose and the fans circulating the cool air so we don't roast...LOL
Around the house... MUCH to do, the big projects being the continued organization/de~cluttering project, setting up the school area, and getting the house back in order after 3 days of doing NO cleaning...doesn't sound so bad until you remember that we are a house of 9 plus all the animals!
One of my favorite things... Time to have a rational thought...it doesn't happen often around here...LOL!
A few plans for the rest of the week… See Around the House
Here is picture thought I am sharing...It's a video, but it makes the kids think that Dan is soooo cool~ Also I'll add a pic of him welding pieces to make shocks for the dune buggy. He fabricated all of the parts for the whole thing except for the actual shocks. I"m so impressed with him!!
Dan, Dan the Welder man...plus jack of all trades wonder!
