For Today ~ June 1, 2009 ...


Outside my window... the wheat is starting to turn gold, the sun is shining, and the breeze is blowing the yellow japanese irises.

I am thinking...  it's going to be a warm, humid day!

I am thankful for...  the beauty of God's creation.

From the learning rooms...  we're studying colonial Africa in the 19th century this week in Tapestry of Grace.

From the kitchen...  I'll be putting chicken in the crockpot as soon as lunch is over ... for either chicken tacos or chicken cacciatore.  Amish Friendship Bread starter getting sourer and sourer so I can bake with it tomorrow.

I am wearing... 
loose olive green drawstring capris and a white floral tshirt ... barefeet ... hair twisted up in an octopus clip.

I am creating... 
nothing really ... other than trying to create a peaceful and loving family atmosphere.  No current projects or reviews to report, although I do have two book reviews to work on later this week.

I am going...  to work on laundry today, although I can't use the clothesline with the threat of thunderstorms.

I am reading...  The Jasmine Moon Murder by Laura Childs.

I am hoping...  we get some more seeds planted tonight, and gentle rains overnight and tomorrow.

I am hearing...  children chattering while they eat lunch.

Around the house...  folded laundry waiting to be put away, signs of a busy weekend ... in other words, we need to clean up this afternoon.

One of my favorite things...  my children, especially when they are getting along or working together on a project.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  try to make plans for next school year, chore charts, and finish planting the garden.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...  I don't know what this iris is, but it's outside my front door, near the yellow Japanese irises.





Trusting in Him,
April
