Outside my window… it’s seemed like spring was coming the past couple of days, but the dropping temperatures declare otherwise.

I am thinking… about the results of the attitudes and prejudices that we pass on to our children. It’s a rather sobering thought that the worldview we teach our children will have such an impact on the future, for good or bad.

I am thankful for… children who make me smile and laugh, even when I’m thinking deep, philosophical thoughts. (Perhaps especially then!)

From the learning rooms… it’s been nice to get back to a regular routine after the Christmas break. A few fun things on the horizon though!

From the kitchen… there is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting that is calling my name… I’ll have a cup of tea and try to resist.

I am wearing… jeans, a burgundy top with a lovely pattern and nice drape.

I am creating… a sweater, a scarf, and socks. I have a project going for pretty much any mood at this point.

I am going… to stay inside, close to the coal stove once this faux spring ends.

I am reading… well, I’ve been reading Star Wars books. It all started because I really love Kathy Tyers’ writing. Since she’s written two Star Wars novels I picked up a copy of each. Now that my interest has been piqued, I want to read more Star Wars novels! I just have to find a place to review them so that I can add them to my list of have-to-read-because-I’m-reviewing-it books.

I am hoping… that some of the ideas rattling around in my head make it onto paper soon.

I am hearing… Ramin Karimloo sing “Till I Hear You Sing”. I first heard him sing in the 25th anniversary performance of Phantom of the Opera.

Pondering these words… “I’ve loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.” – Galileo

Around the house… sit very large mugs that were filled with tea. You know it’s winter when I’m brewing tea three times a day!

One of my favorite things… is the Lady Grey tea by Twinings that I’ve recently discovered. Similar to Earl Grey, just a bit lighter.

A few plans for the rest of the week: lessons with the kids, sorting out my writing schedule and actually doing some writing.
