FOR TODAY Jan. 19,2010... (Somehow I missed doing this yesterday, so I’m doing it today.)
Outside my window... There are three stray cats holding a kitty convention on my neighbor’s awning: a black, a gray tabby, and the other sort of blonde. I wonder what they are convening about?
I am thinking... of tests I have to grade.
I am thankful for... my very own house.
From the learning rooms... Girl of the House and I are nearing the end of our Viking study. Just six more lectures to go from The Teaching Co.’s The Vikings: http://www.teach12.com/ttcx/CourseDescLong2.aspx?cid=3910.
From the kitchen... Poor Man’s Feast from Cooking with Clara. A simple, frugal meal that my family loves. You don’t know about Clara?? Check this out: http://www.greatdepressioncooking.com/Welcome.html. I'll be using ham instead of hot dogs ($1.77/lb. at Sam's Club)
I am wearing... jeans and a purple sweater, gold hoop earrings, a watch
I am creating... more dishcloths!
I am going... nowhere!
I am reading… Still working on Thrift: A Cyclopedia by David Blankenhorn and The Abolition of Man by C.S. Lewis; also browsing American Farmhouses by Leah Rosch
I am hoping... my allergies won’t act up today
I am hearing... The sounds of my family walking around upstairs getting ready for the day
Around the house... It’s laundry day!
One of my favorite things... Warm food on a cold day.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Finish grading tests, take Girl 2 to the library, get a haircut. On Sunday we are attending the baptism of a young friend!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
It's at the top again.
