For today Sunday night May 3.

Outside my is getting dark.

I am thinking...about how Cindy and I seem to always do our daybooks at the same time even though we live 1200 miles away.

I am live in such a great community with such a wonderful group of friends.

From the kitchen...I am culturing kefir, I don't know a whole lot about it, but a friend gave me some kefir grains and I'm doing it. Mike and I had a smoothy with it this morning. Ribs and corn-on-the-cob tomorrow, tacos with friends on Tuesday, and I haven't gotten further than that (we have tons of food though because we went to BJs on Friday).

From the learning rooms...The 50s still, maybe the 60s by the end of the week. Jake will be doing Very Last First Time for FIAR...once again I found some great lapbook ideas for this book on homeschool share.

I'm creating...educated kids.

I am orange shirt and tan skirt...can you believe it?!

I am reading...oh so many possibilites...I just finished The Upstairs Room by Joanna Reiss (another Nazi book similar to Behind the Bedroom Wall), I plan to read Holes this week before we go see the play on Thursday (Jonathan is finishing it for the second or third time), getting ready to start A Father Who Keeps His Promises by Scott Hahn, and will probably start The Grapes of Wrath tonight.

I am hoping...for a good week.

I am hearing...Madi read Junie B Jones to Jake.

Around the house... it's fair...I had this realization the other day that it is good that we don't use a lot of cleaning chemicals in our house (read don't really clean a lot), it is healthier this way.

One of my favorite things...reading in the tub.

I am get in the tub and read as soon as I finish this.

A few plans for the rest of the week...well it's May so I think we're pretty much at the point where I can only think one day at a time...too much going on! I do have to pay my speeding ticket figure out what I'm doing for traffic school this week. Plus all the usual Theatre, Tball, babysitting, etc etc

A picture thought...

I liked your orange shirt and tan skirt--you looked very nice!
I also love what you are creating...educated kids. Can I copy you?

Cindy said...

I like that your using less cleaning chemicals because you aren't cleaning! (You know what I mean!) I also wanted to tell you that the pictures you sent were adorable! I'm getting together with Lisa-check out your email for the story.

Oh, you have to read The Hiding Place. It is such a great story!

Also, have I ever seen you in a skirt?

Julie said...

My point wasn't so much that I was wearing a skirt...which I do wear--it was that I was wearing clothes at all and not jammies like I usually am when I do my daybook.
