For Today… Monday, September 29
Outside my Window… there are birds chirping- the first creatures noticeably awake around here.
I am thinking… that I’d really like to spend the day baking, but there are too many other things to catch up on around here.
From the learning room… Little Bit completed his first work last Friday (outside of laying a mat!) and I think he’ll want to try again today. I introduced Big Kid to geometric solids and he’s been choosing those almost every day ever since. I imagine he’ll want to do the same today.
I am thankful for… time away with other women on Friday and Saturday. It was refreshing and the speaker was amazing.
From the kitchen… leftovers again. Monday seems to be our leftover day lately! I have a lot more time to cook on the weekends, so the beginning of the week sees us polishing off the weekend’s bounty.
I am wearing… jeans and a nice shirt since I will be working later today.
I am reading… still Basic Montessori by David Gettman and The Six Wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir.
I am hoping… to get our new shelves this week. We have outgrown our current storage for the kids things, and I want to keep our montessori things separate from toy things.
I am creating… the quilt for Reed, and I’m still knitting a new sweater for myself. I finished the back piece while at the conference, and started the front.
I am hearing… blessed silence (except those birds!)
Around the house… there is much to catch up on from while I was away, mostly laundry.
One of my favorite things…is fresh sheets. Superman would have me put fresh sheets on the bed every single day we both love that so much, but I just can’t keep up with that pace!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… my regular work week, a library visit, groceries, and lots of cleaning up from the active weekend!
