Another first for me today! My first' Daybook" as part of The Simple Woman's Daybook" blog. I have been reading other Daybooks on some of the blogs I follow and am SO excited to take part in it as well.
Outside my window...It's going to be 95 degrees today. (and tomorrow and Thursday actually) Ouch! We are definitely not used to that this time of the year.
I am thinking...about Hurricane Earl approaching and wondering when we should call and cancel our camping trip for this weekend.
I am thankful for...my husband being home today. He is off the rest of the week. (Well he has to go in tomorrow for a meeting but that's it). It's so nice to have him hanging around with us.
From the learning rooms...Day 4 of homeschool. We are LOVING it. Oh...and of course more knitting practice. An hour yesterday and only about 8 castings done. Wish me luck :)
From the kitchen...I am really in need of some new recipes. I reach a point every so often that I get very bored with cooking the same things.
I am wearing...my pink jammies still. I tend to stay in them longer and longer.
I am creating...a new schedule for myself to help balance my time on the computer with my life. The one I creating a few weeks ago is still not working for me. I think I am going to have to get up earlier to get a few extra things done. Right now it's 5:45 am so maybe I'll shoot for 5 instead and see if I can still function by 7 pm.
I am going...to start prepping parts of our exterior for painting. It is a project that has been nagging at us to start and it's such a big, overwhelming job that we don't even know where to start.
I am reading... "7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens" (with my teenage son) It was given to him for his 13th birthday from his Uncle but I didn't think it was appropriate until now.
I am hoping...that my Mother-in-law feels better very soon. She found out yesterday that what she thought was poison ivy (as well as the emergency room on Sat) turned out to be Shingles. Poor thing is in a lot of pain.
I am hearing...silence as we wait for my daughter to wake up.
Around the house...I really need to schedule to have the carpets cleaned. (is that the most random thought or what?) Signs of summer being tracked in are way too evident.
One of my favorite things...is having dinner on our screened porch every night. I am not sure why we haven't done it since we moved in but we have thoroughly enjoyed it this summer. I will definitely miss it when the weather turns cold.
A few plans for the rest of the week....Sophie starts her 2 hour gymnastics class tomorrow night. She is only used to doing an hour so I'm hoping she loves it. We also have our very first Homeschooling Group get together on Friday. Every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month, they go bowling. We are looking forward to meeting some new homeschool friends very much. My son also has his first official Football game of the season at the high school. I do love football and Fall seasons! Of course this is only if Earl doesn't ruin it for us.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
