FOR TODAY : July 14, 2008
We got back from camping yesterday so today is definitely a little different than normal.
Outside My Window… I am hopeful that today will not be as hot as yesterday. I was wilting by the late afternoon. When we upgraded our heating system we decided NOT to get air conditioning as we only really need it a few days out of the year. SO for about a week two or three times every summer I regret that we didn’t do it. This is probably going to be one of those weeks.
I am thinking… About the fantastic time we had camping. I will post more on it later today, but it was such a great trip and I am SO happy we went. (Thanks Jennifer for encouraging us to go!)
I am thankful for…All the wonderful people in our homeschool group. They are such good parents and they have such great children. I am so glad that my parents are here in town too, they took care of my dogs and plants.
From the kitchen… Nothing yet. IF it isn’t too hot I will make some bread. If it is I will restrict myself to cucumber salad.
I am wearing… A black and white floral dress.
I am creating… The revised camping list. I am also working on some new plans for the fall.
I am going… To take the children to the park this afternoon
I am reading… One Man’s America, Laundry, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell and It’s All Too Much.
I am hoping… That the heat subsides at least a little.
I am hearing… The fan.
Around the house… I have camping gear everywhere. Just like last week only now I am trying to get it all put away.
One of my favorite things… My embroidery threads. They look so pretty in their box.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Recovering from the camping thing. Ordering butterflies. Finishing the homeschool plans for the fall and doing a good bit of reading.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…(coming later today)
