 One of my daughter's classmates, Mandy @ Eternity is Closer Than You Think, tagged me on this fun little meme. It's been awhile since I've done one, and this one is different than others I've done, so I thought it would be fun to play along!
What is happening... Becky and I enjoyed some light "summer school" this morning. Now she's doing a few chores and I'm getting some office work done before time to start work. (Hey, blogging counts as office work, doesn't it?)

How I'm doing... Pretty well, thank you. I'm glad to have the stress of the past month or so behind me, and I'm enjoying getting into a more "normal" summer routine.

Quote... "I do like a road, because you can be always wondering what is at the end of it." L.M. Montgomery, The Story Girl

How God feels about me right now... He loves me. Now and always. I'm so glad that never changes.

I see... sunshine streaming in my window. It's still early enough in the summer that I am really enjoying the sunshine.

I hear... Becky talking to the dog... or maybe the refrigerator. I'm never quite sure who it is she's talking to when no one else is around. Probably the dog.

I smell... lilacs. (Last night the Man of the Place asked me if I was "attached to that big ol' bush out by the truck." Umm... you mean the lilac bush? Well, yeah! Please don't take it out!)

I taste... cantaloupe. Just cut up one for lunch, and of course I snitched a piece. Mmm... summertime fruit!

I feel... rested and relaxed. Finally!

I think... I should scan some more vintage Workbasket ads and articles to share before long.

I'm curious... about what we'll get to review for the upcoming TOS Homeschool Crew year.

I'm praying... that Laura has a good summer, that she learns a lot and is stretched, inspired, and encouraged.

I'm thinking... about writing-- blog posts and letters and a novel some day.

When I was little... I would get bored in the summer with "nothing to do." It's hard to imagine such a thing these days! My to-do list is way longer than the summer.

I want to go... on vacation! But that's not in our plans this year. We enjoy our convention trips and camping on weekends, so at least that's something. Maybe we can take a mini-vacation in the fall.

I love... spending time with my husband.

I despise... snakes.

Scripture... "But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold." --Job 23:10

I'm thankful for... family and friends and a comfortable home.

I just learned... that Singapore has 4 official languages. I had thought that the language of Singapore was English until I had an email yesterday from a Singaporean lady who said Chinese was her mother tongue. One of my co-workers looked it up on Wikipedia, and shared that there are 4 official languages. Malay and Tamil are the other two.

If you enjoy doing tags and this one appeals to you, please consider yourself tagged! Be sure to leave a comment for me so I can come read your answers.

I enjoyed it (very much, actually) but I'm not tagging myself. I just don't have as many interesting things to say as you do!

I despise snakes also. Trouble is our daughters both love them. I have to really suck it up and learn to walk through the reptile house. We just got our daughter a bearded dragon.....that's alot of phobia hurdles to cross for me:)
