Outside my window… it’s been alternately sunny, cloudy, rainy, and windy today. Just your typical weather in Maine!

I am thinking… “Why is the cordless phone from the office in a basket in the living room?”

I am thankful for… cooler days and crisp night air.

From the learning rooms… we’re on break until the first of September. My mind is spinning just thinking of all I have to get done by then!

From the kitchen… pizza dough is rising. I have to make two big pizzas now to feed all of us.

I am wearing… jeans and a purple t-shirt. (It matches my trusty purple crocs quite well!)

I am creating… radiator covers. Actually, I just finished them, and so it’s on to writing catch-up.

I am going… to stay home this week, and hopefully get a lot crossed off the to-do list.

I am reading… Back to Homeschool. With less than a month before “school” starts it’s time to gear up.

I am hoping… to find something in the fridge for pizza toppings that is different but will be well-liked.

I am hearing… LEGOs rattling, and fantastical tales made up by the kiddos about their LEGO creations.

Pondering these words… “The world can be amazing when you’re slightly strange.” – Unknown

Around the house… the last of the plants I tried growing inside are dead. I’m just not meant to have houseplants…

One of my favorite things… is hearing my daughter say things like, “It floats because it has a lot of volume, but not much density.” And when I asked Munchkin why she used those particular terms she shrugged and replied, “I just read it in a book.”

A few plans for the rest of the week: Writing catch-up, school planning, and laundry of course!
