For Today ~ May 11, 2009 ...

Outside my window... 1 guinea hen, 14 Ameraucana hens, and one over-sized Sheltie stalking them through the fence

I am thinking...  I need to go write down that Baby G crawls and claps on the calendar

I am thankful for...  life!  Yesterday, on Mother's Day and her Dad's birthday, my 43 yo cousin (a wife and a mother of two) died suddenly from an unknown infection. 

From the learning rooms...  groans as my oldest struggles with her math.  We are learning about the Civil War, the Underground Railroad, and the building of the Trans-continental Railroad in Tapestry of Grace right now.

From the kitchen...  "What's for dinner?"  "Something that uses ground beef."   

I am wearing... 
my boot cut jeans that I should have exchanged for a smaller size, tennis shoes, and a peach and white striped short sleeve square-necked sweater.

I am creating... 
book reviews!

I am going...  slowly insane?  No!  I am going to begin teaching my girls to sew this week.

I am reading...  Christianity In Crisis and A Claim Of Her Own.

I am hoping...  that it doesn't rain at all tomorrow so I can use the clothesline.

I am hearing...  a fussing baby who wishes he could crawl faster, and maybe even walk.

Around the house...  snack time!  Next ... clean up time!

One of my favorite things...  flowers!

A few plans for the rest of the week:  school, laundry, reviews, church ... just a normal week.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...  I love using this vintage pitcher as a vase for flowers from my yard.  The flowers hide the broken and glued spout.

Trusting in Him,


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin! Praying for her family. What a sad shock!

  2. Love the flowers! Sounds like my house...math...ugh! Hope things settle down a bit, I'll have to come back and check out some reviews

  3. What a beautiful pitcher & flower arrangement. I'm so sorry about your cousin. Holly


I love to hear from you. Thanks for your comment!
