FOR TODAY : June 15, 2009

I am so sore today from yesterday’s hike up Multnomah Falls.  But I survived it.

Outside my Window – I can see the first little cherries turning red.  This is very exciting.  This week we plan on going strawberry picking so we can put up strawberries for the year.  My flowers need watered, my gardens need weeded and the lawn needs mowed again.

I am thinking – About next years plans.  I have a good start on the planning, but there is still a lot to do.  I would like to have it all done by the end of the month so it is ready to go when we get back from our travels later in July and August.

From the learning rooms – Next years plans have taken over.  We still have some work to do this summer.  We are going to be doing some fun activities and projects.  Ashley is out of school for summer.  She has her summer reading list and art  portfolio to work on.

I am thankful for- Very patient people hiking with us yesterday.  I didn’t realize just how horribly out of shape I am.  Now I do.  Need to work on that.

From the kitchen – Nothing much today.  Ashley made cookies yesterday.   Tomorrow I plan on doing some sourdough.

I am reading – Home Comforts.  I am loving this book right now.

I am hoping – That my legs stop hurting sometime today.  That the sky clears up.   I think today is going to end up busy.

I am creating – A new dress for me.

I am hearing – Hannah keeps telling Josh “stop that”.  Poor Josh is getting himself in trouble, mostly because Christopher isn’t here to occupy him.  Christopher is off having fun with my parents on his “big trip” to California.

Around the house – We have an extra dog.  My parents yellow lab is hanging out here with us.

One of my favorite things – Ibuprofen.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week – More lesson planning.  A little baking, a little sewing and some fun with friends.  Nothing too exciting.
