For today Sunday night May 17th.
Outside my window...it is getting dark, and it is raining...hooray!!!
I am thinking...about 11 years ago today (also a Sunday) when 2 1/2 year old Jonathan woke up having a grand mal seizure and we had to rush to the Emergency Room.
I am thankful...everyday for HEALTH!!
From the kitchen...I made bread in the bread machine that I was going to get rid of, and now I think I'll keep it. I used the ground flour and added gluten and otherwise followed a recipe that came with the machine...I also made bread and rolls my usual way. We had "make your own grinders" for supper. (for those of you not from Connectuicut a grinder is like a sub...I've been having them a lot lately...the "old fashioned way" with cabbage instead of lettuce...I know it sounds weird, but it is soo good!) We had yummy omlets for breakfast and pizza dip with bread machine bread for lunch. This week Mike will be out of town a few nights and then we head to the homeschool convention at the end of the week, so probably tacos tomorrow and "clean out" after that.
From the learning rooms...Homeschool evaluations this week. Jake's still doing Storm in the Night...next will be The Glorious Flight. Jonathan and Madi are hooked on watching the Wonder Years--I could cry my head off at the end of every episode. They're still in the 60s and 70s.
I'm creating...a very detailed blog of our lives.
I am wearing...blue capris with fish on them and a blue shirt.
I am reading... A Father Who Keeps His Promises, almost done...bookclub in the morning.
I am hoping...to be asleep before 9:00.
I am hearing...thunder and the TV in the other room...Mike's watching Seinfeld while he packs for his trip.
Around the house...not great, not terrible.
One of my favorite things...The Homeschool Convention...this will be our 8th year going I think.
I am going...to read to Jake...Storm in the Night during a storm...gotta love it!
A few plans for the rest of the week...probably one of the busiest weeks of the year, I've decided May is like December- "life on steroids" bookclub; signing up for golf clinic, kids college, & sports camp; schoolwork; dancing with the stars (that's just tomorrow!!). Not to mention all of the things that only happen once a year that are happening this week like homeschool evaluations, AWANA awards night, the convention, American Idol finale, and all the usual stuff that happens every week too!!
A picture thought...
