Outside my window… the wild roses are starting to bloom. I need to find out what time of year I should harvest the rose hips. They will make great tea this winter!

I am thinking… about all of the writing that I have to get done!

I am thankful for… rechargeable batteries. Seriously. We go through so many batteries in a week that I can’t imagine the fortune we’d spend on the one-use batteries.

From the learning rooms… we’re doing our LEGO lapbook and unit study this week… if we can just get past math this morning! I’ll post later this week with links to the Lego study and some basic lapbook how-to for those of you who, like me, are new to lapbooks.

From the kitchen… English muffin bread! SOOOOO good! Now I just have to make up a batch of strawberry freezer jam to go with it.

I am wearing… denim capris, a t-shirt of Aaron’s, and my trusty purple crocs.

I am creating… dishcloths because I need something easy and soothing to knit.

I am going… to try to get to the library this afternoon. We shall see.

I am reading… Firebird and Thriving in the 21st Century: Preparing Our Children for the New Economic Reality. Both are books that I will be writing reviews for later on.

I am hoping… that I have a productive week and cross a few things of the to-do list!

I am hearing… birds singing and the occasional traffic sounds drifting in the open window.

Pondering these words… “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” – Oscar Wilde

Around the house… I did get to sorting books, and now have one huge box and five smaller boxes of books ready to find new homes.

One of my favorite things… passing on chapter books to Munchkin that my Mom gave to me once upon a time. (We won’t discuss how many years ago that was…)

A few plans for the rest of the week: writing, writing, writing… and some laundry and cooking in there too.
