FOR TODAY August 31st, 2009…
Outside my window… It is a beautiful day! Warmer than the end of August usually is around here!
I am thinking… about how much fun we had this weekend. We went to a wedding on Nathaniel’s side of the family and is was huge (he has 200 first cousins)! It was great seeing everyone and visiting, I wish my family was that big.
I am thankful for… the huge bag of beautiful clothes we got from one of Nathaniel’s cousins for Mary. I was just running out of clothes for her and now I have everything I could possibly need for the next year! Such a blessing.
From the learning rooms… We are slowly and surely getting into a school routine. Mary learns things much quicker than I expected her to so I am having to relook at my plans and make them a little more challenging.
From the kitchen… lots and lots of canning! We are working on zucchini relish today. I also have pears waiting to be made into pear sauce and asparagus waiting to be pickled. Also, bread! My new mixer and I are getting better acquainted and I am trying really hard not to buy bread anymore.
I am wearing… a tank top and comfy pants. I don’t wear comfy pants very often, I find I get a lot more done when I get up and get dressed but today I made an exception. 😉
I am creating… lots of things these days! Skirts and head bands for Mary, school plans, Montessori games.
I am going… to start potty training this week. I just can’t put it off anymore.
I am reading… books by Louisa May Alcott! Did you know she wrote tons of books? Other than the Little Women books? Right now I am reading “An Old Fashioned Girl” and it is SO CUTE!
I am hoping… the silk scarves I ordered to make play silks with come soon, Mary is going to love them!!
I am hearing… the blissful sounds of naptime. AKA nothing!
Around the house… we are finally settled in after being gone for two months. It feels so good to be home and sleeping in our own bed.
One of my favorite things… is my improved home management binder! Hooray for being organized! Blog posts coming soon.
A few plans for the rest of the week: *sigh* potty training. Pray for me!
