Thoughts for Tuesday October 28th

Outside my windows… there has been a lot of rain this week, but we had sunny skies today.

Inside my house… is a working printer on my desk. I didn’t quite realize how much I print until the previous printer bit the dust a month and a half ago. I did quite a bit of research trying to find the best printer in the price range that I had in mind. The new printer arrived last week while my IT staff was off teaching a workshop. I actually managed to get it set up and printing on my own. Will wonders never cease…

Counting 1000 gifts… so, so, so, thankful that my IT staff is home at last! I sure miss my Aaron when he’s gone.

Prayers of the heart… asking for perspective lately. There are so many things in a day that call for my time and attention. I want to make the right things my priority.

What the (not quite so) little ones are up to… Munchkin has discovered the Grandma’s Attic book series, and the boys have been working on a LEGO fort recently. Naturally, the fort includes cannons!

From my playlist… the soundtrack to Space Pirate Captain Harlock. If you know what that is, you are definitely a geek!

From my reading list… A Lady at Willowgrove Hall by Sarah Ladd. I’ll be posting a review here later this week.

From my needlework basket… Christmas vests for the kiddos. I’m making up the pattern as I go along since I couldn’t find a pattern I liked to go with the yarn I wanted to use. There’s a lot of math involved in pattern design.

In the learning room… multiplying fractions for Munchkin. She seems to take to fractions far better than her mother did, which is another thing I’m thankful for today!

Random ramblings… I went upstairs to grab a cable. Got upstairs and couldn’t remember why I was there, so I started back downstairs. Halfway down the stairs, I remembered the cable and had to turn around and go back for it. I really thought I’d be a bit older than 34 by the time stuff like this started happening…

Profound ponderings… “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Caught on film… because I still can’t believe that I get to write for my favorite magazine…
