Daybook for August 8th

Outside my window… I’m not sure if it’s going to be cloudy or sunny fifteen minutes from now. That’s Maine though, if you don’t like the weather then wait a minute, it’ll change.

I am thinking… about what I have to do to wrap up some of the “coming soon” blog projects. Keep your eyes open this week for one of them!

I am thankful for… the beginnings of a wonderful family library that includes books passed on to us by parents and grandparents.

From the learning rooms… I’m reading through introductions and guides for our Fall curriculum and printing out some of the worksheets we’ll be using for practice.

From the kitchen… Rice Krispy squares and anything that doesn’t require heating up the kitchen too much.

I am wearing… my gray Red Sox t-shirt and black pants. Oh, and the trusty purple crocs.

I am creating… another February Lady Sweater. This time in a rich espresso brown yarn.

I am going… to be doing some grocery shopping sometime this week.

I am reading… actually, I just finished a book that will be reviewed here soon! A new book came in the mail today though, One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. I’m very much looking forward to reading it!

I am hoping… that we get our truck back from the garage soon. It’s taking a bit longer than we’d expected.

I am hearing… the rattle of legos in the living room. They are just one of those toys that kids never seem to get tired of, and I love to see their creativity as they create new things with the blocks.

Pondering these words… “If I will spend a few years doing something that no one else will do, then I will spend the rest of my life doing something no one else can do.” – Unknown

Around the house… I’m figuring out where to put the new books. Maybe someday we’ll build on a library.

One of my favorite things… the unique scent of leather and paper bound together and the warm feel of the leather cover when I run my fingertips over it. I love books in general, but the leather-bound ones are my favorite.

A few plans for the rest of the week: more writing, more laundry and many more hugs from my little (and not-so-little) ones!
