For today..... July 25, 2016
Looking out my window..... Even the leaves on the trees are looking tired, from all this heat.
I am thinking..... that I can't wait for the day when winter winds whistle around the corners of the house, heaping drifts of snow, and I'll finally be comfortable again.
I am thankful..... that every day brings me one day closer to winter.
One of my favorite things..... winter days.
I am wearing..... A pink and black top, and a charcoal gray skirt.
I am creating..... lesson plans. I start with the base provided for in the curriculum that we'll be using, but I branch out and dig deeper. For example Sunbeam will be studying about the country of Algeria in our first week back to school. In addition to learning what her curriculum provided, I'm finding books to read, food to try, the national anthem to listen to, some crafts, a lapbook to record interesting facts, and plants and animals found in that country.
That is only the geography. I do the same for other subjects where I feel we could do more indepth things.
Yes, I realize I'm making my life busier than it would have to be, but we love learning
I am reading...... I finished The Miting last week, and haven't started another book yet. This morning I read the book of Galatians in the Bible
I am hoping..... That winter will come early this year.
I am learning..... that even though I daydream about all things winter, it doesn't bring the desired relief from being stuck in the middle of the dog days of summer.
In the kitchen...... it's hot enough for me to consider serving something I never imagined I would even consider. My mother-in-laws cold soup.
Yep, pretty much the picture going through my mind multiple times a day.
