My Daybook (7)
FOR TODAY: Thursday, January 6, 2011
Outside my window… it is snowing. I love how snowflakes flutter down like a feather.
I am thinking… that it is amazing that I actually have had an hour to sit and do whatever I wanted to. For the most part, everyone has taken a rest time this afternoon. Ahh . . . it makes me feel at peace to have some quiet.
IMPORTANT AMMENDMENT regarding the B.E.E. 90x Challenge in my life: I set a completely unrealistic goal for myself. I am only going to serve as a Mentor for the Bible in 90 Days, not read the 12 pages a day. I ended up in tears feeling utterly defeated the first day . . . as I collapsed into bed at 11:30 PM.
Plus, the Hottie ever so sweetly asked me to read through the Bible Chronologically with him this year. I couldn’t resist his sweet smile and batting eyes.
(They are looking at Asher’s Christmas present, the Action Bible.)
Back to Melanie . . . she is a constant source of encouragement to me AND the voice of reason often. Sometimes instead of leaving me visible comments for you all to see . . . she writes me precious emails full of wisdom and practicality. I need that. I am too much of a visionary and dreamer.
From the learning rooms… Sigh. Life is full of learning. We are doing the bare minimum right now. Using some gift cards that I received for Christmas, I had a date with Target. We need more organization for me to function in the cold school room. Did I say cold? Ahem. Hottie. Ahem.
From the kitchen… I’m making lamb tonight! And I may even try some beats. Our meals have gotten easier and harder at the same time. I have been receiving the Nourished Kitchen meal plans and it has helped me to think ahead.
I am creating… milk.
I am going… to organize the schoolroom and set up an ancient computer for the boys.
I am hoping… that Naomi’s adjustment will help her sleep and relax. I am also praying that the Cranial Sacral therapy Gabe received and will receive will alleviate the discomfort he feels in his face from his fall.
I am hearing… trucks in the highway and little boys playing in the basement.
Around the house… I need a maid. But I did actually clean my bathroom with my new E-Cloth yesterday.
One of my favorite things… my new espresso machine.
A few plans for the rest of the week: take care of my kids, lower my expectations, implement Tell Your Time, creatively find a way to bless my husband, write some reviews, hang Naomi’s clothes, and exercise.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing…
Is that not the largest marshmallow you have ever seen?
