Outside my window… there is still a lot of snow, but my driveway is partially muddy and I think this sunshine will melt some more snow!

I am thinking… my teen years. I’ll be doing some writing about being a homeschooled high school student this week.

I am thankful for… the fact that I am not longer a teenager. Seriously, being an adult has its own challenges, but I much prefer it.

From the learning rooms… this is our week off, and I think we can all use it! The weather has been making the kids stir-crazy. A week of fun projects and downtime will be refreshing.

From the kitchen… it was nearly noon before I was able to have my first cup of tea… this explains the eye twitch.

I am wearing… jeans and a black shirt.

I am creating… a knitted lightsaber for Little Guy’s birthday this week. And I just have to share that Munchkin sewed her first quilt this weekend!

I am going… to be waiting anxiously for my blog planner to arrive this week! I got the shipping confirmation today. I absolutely love my Well Planned Day and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in the blog planner!

I am reading… The Queen’s Handmaiden. At least, I’m going to be starting it. I finished up a couple of book reviews this week, so now it’s onto the next.

I am hoping… that it will feel a bit more like spring by the end of the month.

I am hearing… Rocketman. Probably an odd choice, but it fits in with a scene I’m working on in my head. I’m definitely someone who needs music to write.

Pondering these words… “Not my circus. Not my monkeys.” – Polish Proverb (Can I just say how much I love this quote? I need to remember it the next time I’m about to get pulled into something that I really should walk away from!)

Around the house… we set up a small tent in the living room and the kids went “camping” last night. S’more snack mix and the fireplace video on Netflix contributed to the ambience.

One of my favorite things… is red nail polish, even if it will be chipped by tomorrow.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Birthday party for little guy! There will be cupcakes!
