Daybook for August 13th


Outside my window… there may be an 80% chance of rain, but it’s sure sunny right now.

I am thinking… about checking on the kids’ pool, but the snakes the kids keep seeing in the back yard are making me rather hesitant to venture out.

I am thankful for… a desk next to Aaron’s.

From the learning rooms… Is it really only a few weeks till New Book Day? Slightly overwhelming…

From the kitchen… the kettle is on because I need some tea! Decaf Lady Grey this morning I think.

I am wearing… grey shorts and a Red Sox t-shirt.

I am creating… one of those rice-filled pillow stands for tablets and working on a cardigan for this fall.

I am going… to be doing some final edits on writing projects today. *makes face* There’s a reason why I’m not a copy editor, and a very good reason why I’m thankful for the ones who edit my writing!

I am reading… the kids’ science books. Of course, the short lesson on nuclear power sent me off on a long research tangent and prompted a discussion with my IT staff.

I am hoping… that we can just pretend it’s actually Monday, and that I got this post up in a timely fashion.

I am hearing… You’re the Inspiration by Chicago. Guess I’m feeling nostalgic this morning. A Chicago CD was the first birthday present that Aaron ever gave me.

Pondering these words… “When I graduated from High School… I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.” – Ray Bradbury

Around the house… it’s time to get the dining/learning/piano room ready for the fall.

One of my favorite things… is listening to music while I’m writing.

A few plans for the rest of the week: I’ll be finishing writing projects, sorting and reading school books, weeding though the stack of papers that have accumulated, and of course, laundry!
