FOR TODAY : October 27, 2008
A lovely fall day, clear blue, cool and a bit of a wind. All the fall colors are showing.
Outside my Window – The sky is stunningly clear and blue just like yesterday.
I am thinking –I about sewing and all the fun Halloweeen plans.
From the learning rooms – The children are watching a Greek history video. We are working on our civics unit study this week and finishing off the first research papers.
I am thankful for– Klye being home! Just so nice.
From the kitchen –My coffee. We are making turkey soup with dumplings for dinner.
I am wearing – My brown slacks and a purple sweater.
I am reading – C.S. Lewis – Four Loves.
I am hoping – That I can stay on task today. I have so much to do.
I am creating – Halloween costumes.
I am hearing – Liam Nesson narrating the Greek video.
Around the house – I am going to start twitching if I think about this too much — seriously.
One of my favorite things – The colors of the season.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week – Lots of sewing, little bit of work, crazy time.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you –
pumpkin picture soon
Would you believe that Mr Kitty has a cold? I was working this evening and I heard the loudest sneeze behind me. I turned around thinking it was one of the kids… nope the cat.
This morning Sarah snuggled up on my lap with “big Giggy”, her favorite blanket. She was warm and cuddly and looked up at me with the most content expression. “Momma loves Sarah so much” I told her. “Daddy loves Sarah too.” she reminded me.
Sarah seems to miss Kyle the most. Even when he isn’t traveling and is just at work she is the one most likely to lead the “Daddy is home” charge out the front door when his car pulls up. While he is traveling she is the one with all the cute little things to report. A couple nights ago she was talking to me and very earnestly said “Daddy’s at work.” I agreed with her and then she added “and he’s missing me.”
I listened to the VP debate tonight on CSPAN. My favorite moment? After the debate while, the mics were still hot Palin is leaving the stage, Todd is coming up to greet her, “Hey, hon!”, she says. ” Where are the kids?” Could I identify with this woman more?? No, not really.
It was great. In all the hand wringing I have heard over Palin one of silliest is “what about her kids?” ok….
The response is of course that no man would be asked that because obviously his wife would be taking care of the kids. Todd Palin has shown himself capable of dealing with the home fires just fine while his wife goes big game hunting. To think other wise is sexist at best and totally dismissive of Mr Palin. I thought Sarah rocked tonight. I still am thinking McCain-Palin will lose, but Gov Palin rocked.
