Gorgeous weather as well as the bulk pick-up ready and waiting at the curb.
I Am Thankful For ~
Summer bucket lists.
A productive weekend.
(David "patty-tized" the garage....a red banner day! Trust me, folks. This is a clean garage that also takes deliveries for the business.)
*Insert fantasy here... I wish we had one of those spic and span garages that gleams from top to bottom. You know, the kind with immaculate, glossy floors (the kind you could lick!)
A garden that is producing.
(Lettuce, peas, beans, and cucumbers.)
I Am Thinking About ~
A dinner menu for the next week. I grocery shop on Thursday afternoons, but for some reason, I'm just sitting and staring at a blank piece of paper....so I decided to blog. (I know. Real productive.)
I have not blogged a daybook post in almost two months. (Sally gently reminded me and informed me that she likes them.)
From The School Room ~
Yesterday, we cleaned out all the school stuff.
They did amazing on their finals!!
Each May, our homeschool group puts together an achievement test week. (Three mornings). Any homeschool family that wants their child(ren) to experience group setting tests, this is a great way to introduce them to filling in those dots. I always sign my Jr High kids up since they'll need that experience when they take their ACT, PSAT, etc in High School. Ester took her CAT5.
(*Texas doesn't require these achievement tests.)
What I Am Reading ~
Ester just finished Island of the Blue Dolphins on her kindle. She just loved it and suggested I read it, too. So I am.
From The Kitchen ~
Spaghetti tonight. (But I really need to get crackin' on my grocery list....)
What I Am Praying For ~
~ For all those who have asked me to pray for them.
~ For our roles as parents (David and myself); as we continually discern on making correct decisions on raising and parenting our children.
What I Am Listening To ~
Miss Sally is making lunch. Miss Clementine is playing and talking to her big sister. Stan the man has a friend over and they are playing upstairs.
Around My House ~
We are making plans for a stay-cation this coming June. Sarah blogged about her family's last summer here and here.
I loved the idea! We have some fun ideas planned and can hardly wait to share.
(Another) Picture to Share ~
That is a spoonbill my hubs caught up on the Red River (border of Texas and Oklahoma.) About 50 lbs.
He went on his own retreat last week camping and fishing. He needed some manly-man R&R and enjoyed himself immensely :)
(I made sure he text me every time he went out at night to fish and when he safely returned to camp as well as a set of directions to where he was located....just in case.)
Happy hump-day! Hope the rest of your week is a great one!
