Outside my window... It is just now getting light. In June it will be bright daylight by 4:30a.m. but right now it's barely dawn by 7:00a.m.
I am thinking... about the new Sonlight catalog that will be arriving soon! I have a wish list started of things I need for my booth (and my own homeschool).
From the learning rooms... We are trying out a new spelling program on the computer called SpellQuizzer. Watch for my review at Roads to Learning, coming soon.
I am thankful... that my daughter's first visit to the orthodontist went well on Friday. She now has braces on her top teeth, and so far seems to be handling it better than I thought she might. I'm also thankful that it's a gradual process, to allow her to get used to them just on the top before her whole mouth is full of metal!
From the kitchen... my second batch of sour dough bread is raising. I'm going to let it raise a little longer than I did last week and see if it will be a little lighter.
I am wearing... a denim wrap-around skirt with a short-sleeved khaki-colored sweater... and my red fleece slippers! Cute, huh?
I am reading... Apologetics for a New Generation by Sean McDowell
I am hoping... to not have to serve on the jury this week. I'm "on call" and didn't have to go today, but I have to call again tonight to see if they need me tomorrow. I really don't mind doing my "duty" but quite honestly, I can't exactly afford to donate my time!
I am creating... I've starting quilting the Irish Chain quilt top my mother made for me. Watch for pictures tomorrow!
I am hearing... the furnace and the computer running. My "I am hearing" report will be more interesting when it gets warm enough to open the windows!
Around the house... It's time for some spring cleaning! It's been exactly a year since we moved into our house!
One of my favorite things... enjoying the outdoors when the weather warms up. It was in the single digits several days last week, so I am basking in the 40 degree temps we've had the last couple of days. Looking forward to gradually warmer temps for spring!
A few plans for the rest of the week... my calendar is open because of jury duty. If I don't have to go, I'll be able to maintain my normal work routine.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
My Christmas Cactus blooms in November and March. I haven't had the heart to tell it that it's only meant to bloom in December! I guess that really makes it a Thanksgiving and Easter cactus.
Hope you have a great week!
