Daybook

Outside my window…it’s sunny, beautiful, but so very hot.

I am thinking…I’m losing my touch at multi-tasking.  Case in point…I was just thinking of my to-do list while taking a shower and when I turned off the water, I realized that I had no idea what I had washed…turned back on the water and took another shower and realized that if I can’t even think while doing something, I might not want to try actual multi-tasking right now…hoping my brain returns soon.

I am remembering…Andrew’s response lately when he’s told to do something…”No problem, Mom, no problem.”

I am thankful…that I actually filled out so much in both Joseph and William’s baby books…now to start Andrew and Katie’s books…oh and to update Joseph and William’s…

In the kitchen…freshly baked chocolate chip cookies…dairy, egg, and soy free again…we’ve walked this path many times.

I am wearing…jean shorts and a pink v-neck t-shirt.  Tomorrow I’m going to make an effort to remember jewelry and a little lip gloss…crazy, I know!

I am creating…plans for this next school year and having so much fun doing it…our science and history plans are awesome!

I am going…to make my grocery list tonight and I plan to pull my Taste of Home Slow Cooker book out to help with the menu planning because nothing beats cooking in the crock pot!

I am readingSavannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews, while waiting for my first book club book to arrive so I can get started on it.

On my iPod…the same old stuff…Mother Culture by Karen Andreola, Childlight conference talks, Family Life Center CDs…inspiration to keep going each day.

In our learning room…Presidents and more presidents…and more presidents.  When we went to Barnes & Noble this weekend, bet you can’t guess what book Joseph chose…yep, a new presidents book.  I’m your lifeline if the million dollar question ever involves presidents.

Around the house…ooh, I can finally do a little cleaning.  It’ll take some major restraint from doing it all.

I am pondering…Jeremiah 29:11-14 and finding such comfort and joy in these words…“For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, not for woe! plans to give you a future full of hope.  When you call me, when you go to pray to me, I will listen to you.  When you look for me, you will find me.  Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, you will find me with you, says the Lord…”

I am praying…with St. Paul.  “Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, through prayer and thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.”  Such words of comfort.

One of my favorite things…big brother singing to the sweet baby girl.

  1. Oh so sweet. You chose my favorite verse from the Bible to put in here. ” I know the plans…”
