For today Sunday night March 22
Outside my window...it is dark, cool and breezy, the blinds are going clack clack clack.
I am thinking...about another very full week coming up.
I am thankful for...my friends.
From the kitchen...homemade bread just came out of the oven and I'm doing this while I wait for it to cool, so I can then bag it and go to bed. Tonight my parents were here and we had turkey, mashed potatoes, golden green bean casserole, and broccoli from the garden. Tomorrow is left-overs (I'll be out), Tue- beef stew, Wed Guatemalan chicken and pineapple, Thur- refrigerator clean out that's as far as I've gotten so far.
From the learning rooms...we're coming up on the stock market crash of 1929 and the ensuing Great Depression. We'll probably be doing most of our schoolwork in the car tomorrow on our way to and from seeing the play The Hundred Dresses. The Guatemala project is coming along pretty well. Jake did Make Way for Ducklings for Five in a Row last week and I think we're going to do Peter Rabbit this week. Jonathan started his last Singapore Math book last week.
I am creating...I'm getting much better with the bread...does that count?
I am wearing...jammies.
I am reading...still listening to Marley and Me on the playaway...it is long (maybe this guy is a slow reader). Jonathan and Madi and I are about half way through St Catherine Laboure. Jake and I have read The Little Engine that Could a few times this week and tonight he read half of it to me. We've also read a lot of Virginia Lee Burton recently.
I am hoping...for a smooth week.
I am hearing...Mike watching TV in the bedroom and the blinds still going clack clack clack.
Around the house...it's lived in, but not embarassing.
One of my favorite things...chocolate fondue.
I am going...to bed soon.
A few plans for the rest of the week...the play tomorrow and also Grease at a local high school later in the week, some kids from Theatre are in it. Typical school work, theatre, baseball, babysitting, etc... Madi begins a new art class on Friday, and we'll start the first of a few celebrations for her upcoming 11th birthday next week. Mike's going away for the weekend to play golf with some old friends. And of course the International Day where we can show case what we're supposed to be learning about Guatemala.
A picture thought...
