Daybook for May 20th


Outside my window… yesterday’s sunshine has been replaced by overcast skies and rain. But we do need the rain!

I am thinking… about some of the projects that I plan to tackle this week.

I am thankful for… a quiet day.

From the learning rooms… this is our week off, and I think we’re all glad to have a bit of a break! We’re hitting the home stretch with this year’s books, and I’m elbow-deep in planning for next year. Have I mentioned that I’m glad we have this week off?

From the kitchen… it was a blueberry muffin sort of day. You can’t beat Grammy Lila’s blueberry muffin recipe, especially if it’s raining or snowing.

I am wearing… jeans, a gray Red Sox t-shirt, and my trusty purple crocs. (Yes, I keep saying that I need to replace them, but I’m sort of attached to this well-worn pair!)

I am creating… and finishing up little projects this week. One hat in particular had about 200 ends to weave in…

I am going… to wait until Tuesday to watch the Doctor Who finale. I told my sister that I’d wait and watch it with her. It’s a good thing we went to see Star Trek this weekend, so at least I’ve had a bit of a science fiction fix to tide me over!

I am reading… too many books to name. I seriously can’t believe I just typed that sentence. I’ve got a bunch of review reading, not to mention plenty of books I want to read, and books that I have to read before fall because we’re using them for school. Whew!

I am hoping… that a few things sort themselves out soon.

I am hearing… kiddos playing in the living room, and kiddos digging through LEGOs in the dining room.

Pondering these words… “If you write one story it may be bad; if you write a hundred, you have the odds in your favor.” – Edgar Rice Burroughs

Around the house… every time I wash a load of dirty towels it seems like another pile re-appears. I can’t explain this, can you?

One of my favorite things… is seeing some of the great LEGO creations the kids come up with.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Writing up the next six weeks of lesson plans, working on other writing projects, reading, and laundry.

  1. So, what science fiction are you going to use to tide you over for the next six months while we await the new Doctor Who season? I’m thinking about a weekly rerun schedule… 🙂

  2. I’m trying not to think about the long wait! I’ll probably watch some of the classic Who episodes that are on Netflix, and I’m thinking of watching the original Star Trek series with the kiddos. I used to watch Star Trek with my Dad every evening when it was in reruns back in the 80’s!

    Maybe I’ll get in some writing time on my own science fiction story. I keep joking that I’ll have it finished in time for the grandkids to read it!
