For Today…March 23, 2009
Outside my Window…is incessant drizzle. In the Pacific Northwest, March showers bring April…showers; April showers bring May showers, and May showers often bring a rainy June as well. Of course, all things green and growing love the moisture, so lovely flowers crop up as well.
I am thinking…that I am up too late, but this is one of my favorite posts to do, so here goes.
From the learning rooms…We are busy getting ready for the 6th grade Science Fair at the middle school. There are always a few stragglers who barely squeak in under the wire. I wish them well!
I am thankful for…daughter Kayla being done with college classes until Spring Quarter. She has been working incredible hours, so we are looking forward to spending more time with her.
From the kitchen…I made some 100% beef homemade hamburgers with all the fixings tonight, much to my husband’s pleasure. He’s about had his fill of my pseudo-meat concoctions.
I am wearing…something neat but boring. School attire.
I am reading…The Life Force Diet by Michelle Schoffro Cook. I’m on Chapter 3 just now, and am learning about the importance of enzymes in the diet.
I am hoping…we can afford to get some major work done on our Suzuki Grand Vitara. First come the property taxes, then the car repairs. I’m also hoping to get my hair styled when our ship comes in.
I am creating…a healthier diet for my family by banishing the 3Ps from the kitchen: Processed, Packaged and Prepared foods (page 80 of The Life Force Diet). It may be difficult to totally banish them. We’ll see.
I am hearing…the click of the doggie’s toenails as she climbs the wooden stairs. This sound means she is going to lie down in our bedroom, which means it’s time for bed.
Around the house…the children are all asleep. Yawn!
One of my favorite things…is helping kids at the Middle School. There’s never a dull moment!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…too many appointments, in fact every day is booked. This evening, youngest son Seth and I enjoyed the Middle School Band Concert. I think the Seventh Grade Band was the best. The sixth graders did quite well, though, and the high point of the eighth grade performance was their drum corps routine. Bravo!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…
Grandson Diederick can now open doors. Watch out world! I’m sure his momma will keep a good eye on him. He showed me his new skill when his daddy brought over some homemade soup to some of us ‘sickies’ last week.
Are you content to linger on the simple things of life…then join me in taking a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those of us who are focusing on simplicity…the beauty of the everyday moments around us. That is my vision for this idea!
