I am thinking... that a day of movies and no chores was exactly what we needed after this hectic, crazy busy weekend.
I am thankful for... Dan working again...even if it means he is 5 hours away all week.
I am wearing... Monday 'clean the house' clothes...brown knit capris, a mint green tee and warm socks.
I am remembering.. that for ONCE I remembered the time change...I'm only 36, it's about time!
I am reading... Cassidy. Dan and I have been reading all over in our morning Bible readings, mostly Proverbs, Psalms and James this week. I've also still been pondering my way through Romans...but that has been going more slowly as I read more with Dan. This is still true this week...but I still need to do my reading for today.
I am hoping... that Dan is safe while he is gone this week, and that they will still have work for him next week.
On my mind... MY need for a routine, and a schedule. It's been a topsy turvy few weeks around here and I NEED to get back to my 'normal'...whatever that is. : )
Noticing that... Nothing smells better than fresh bread sitting on the counter. Mmmmm!
Pondering these words...Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. (Benjamin Franklin) OUCH!!
From the kitchen... Fresh bread, cookie dough and homemade popcorn...yummy! For meal plans...they are as follows;
- Monday~ Chicken Parmesan with Rotini
- Tuesday~Tilapia, Rice and Broccoli
- Wednesday~Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, and Salad
- Thursday~Chicken Breasts, the leftover rotini and more salad
- Friday~Pizza...and chips, veggies and dip
- Saturday~ Smoked sausage, mac and cheese, salad
- Sunday~ To Be Determined...it may just be a 'fend' dinner...whatever we can find : )
From the learning rooms... Back to our regularly scheduled learning. ABeka on M-TH mornings and then My Father's World on T and TH afternoons. No craft class this week so I might make up something myself. A trip to the park to play and do some nature study will be fun if the weather is good.
Around the house... It looks great! The kids and I worked hard this morning and over the weekend to put the house back in order, so it's just the basics...laundry, dishes and cooking.
One of my favorite things... A day that I don't feel bad about doing nothing. Of course, "nothing" has included writing this blog, baking bread, serving 3 meals, doing 4 loads of laundry, wrangling the kids, an hour of super FUN visiting with Kelly and Mom on Skype, reviewing Jodi's new website to check for mistakes and such, a lovely phone conversation with my Sister-Girl Karen, dropping Dan off for his ride at 3AM, and leading the charge in our hour long battle to get the LR put back together this afternoon! LOL...maybe I need a break from my day 'off' : )
From my picture journal.. A lovely sight on the way to SOMEWHERE here in NM...I just LOVE living here, it's like a postcard ALL the time
