Daybook

Outside my window…

Another humid morning. Maybe we’ll stay around 90 F instead of hitting more like 95 F.

 

I am thinking…

about Ezra’s poor chin! On Friday we were out running our weekly errands and he fell at the grocery store. He fell into the edge of the dairy case and cut his lip and the bottom of his chin as well as his teeth puncturing the inside of his lip. After 5 hours in the ER the outside gashes were sealed with Dermabond and we’re keeping an eye on the wounds inside his mouth and trying to protect his chin as much as we can.

I am thankful for…

an unexpected but good family trip next week, complete with my husband coming along!

Always Learning…

Grandparents gifted us with a telescope recently so we’ve been checking out the stars! Ender has been really good at finding the Big Dipper the last few days. We got a few books too, and we’re checking out some more constellations.

From the kitchen…

We made strawberry jam last week and this week I’m planning an adventure into hand pies. It may or may not go well since I don’t have a ton of experience with pastries, but we’ll try it and see how it turns out!

I am wearing…

my blue tree skirt, a white shirt and knee socks.

 

I am creating…

Sleeves. This is the week of finishing sleeves- I have 2 one-armed sweaters in need of a second sleeve, and I still haven’t finished a sleeve for my Tappan Zee Cardigan yet.

  

I am going

to stay home and try to keep everyone cool this week. We’ve been going to swimming lessons every day for the past 2 weeks and I’m ready for a few weeks of not having to go anywhere.

I am reading…

Sweater Quest by Adrienne Martini, which has proven to be a really interesting read for me, but explaining what it’s about to a non-knitter, well . . . that’s *really* difficult.

I’m also reading the new Jacqueline Carey book, Naamah’s Curse and Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper.

I am hoping…

That the rain will stop so that something will actually grow. Everything we’ve planted this year has been drowned out, except for the gerber daisies on the back deck. I’m going to have to see about new tomato plants or give up for this year.

 

I am hearing…

Steven Curtis Chapman, Beauty will Rise.

 

Around the house…

I’m trying to maintain all the reorganizing that’s been going on lately.

One of my favorite things…

Our fresh strawberry jam . . . mmmmm . . .

 

A few plans for the rest of the week . . .

A trip to the doctor for a checkup for Ezra, a special program at the library, packing for the trip, and then getting away with my family!
