For today…August 3, 2009

From my rocker…the whirr of the ceiling fan * watching my son create things with clay * my puppy snoring in her bed

I am hearing…the sounds of morning * the coffee pot cycling * the air-conditioning working hard on a steamy, August day

I am remembering…the quick visit to Florida to check on moms * walking on the beach with my children * swim finals * making pickles * dinner with home grown foods * making progress on the new shed * the arrival of our new mattress set

I am thankful…for my faithful, merciful Savior * flexible schedules * homeschooling * healthy children * loving family * fried okra

Around the house…lots of clutter from last week * remnants of pickling * baskets of laundry that need attention * children gathered in the family room eating their breakfast cereal

From the kitchen…sweet corn soup with home grown corn * zucchini bread * barbecue sandwiches with leftover smoked pork * experiments with bread machine

From the learning rooms…continuing with lessons * placement test for local community college * Christianity and Liberalism by J. Gresham Machen * starting new math curriculum * lots of home economics  😉

Currently reading…continuing Truth War * catching up on WORLD issues

  One of my favorite things…a clean house–a rare pleasure.   

A few plans for the rest of the week…lots of cleaning & cooking * school * two swim parties * catching up with girlfriends * 4H meeting * homeschool co-op business

A picture thought to share…bountiful blessings!


May the Lord bless you and keep you this week!
