What I'm thinking: A small miracle happened last week. I gave my broken camera to Mr. Lego's friend and low and behold he got it working again! (He wasn't exactly sure what he did.) I took it in that day to the camera store and they said it could work short term but was definitely dying. So I have been carefully choosing moments to photograph. I also bought a used older Nikon from my cousin to hold me over while I save up for a new one. God is good!
What I'm reading: I didn't really have any spare reading time last week and I can almost guarantee I won't have any for the next two weeks. So I'll share a favorite book instead of telling you what I'm reading....Wilderness Family by Kobie Kruger. This is a good book written by the wife of a game warden in South Africa. They lived out in the bush and got visits from spitting cobras, meerkats and a baby lion. Very well written.
What I'm listening to: My friend posted a song on Facebook - One Republic - and now I am listening to our You Tube playlist and Marchin' On is playing. I am thinking about doing Mog online....feedback anyone?
What we're learning: We are moving onto Catechism question #45 in school this week, and in history we are studying the Inca's, Ottoman's and Constantinople, and Gutenberg and the printing press. The children are also reviewing their 4-H presentations and studying the rabbit manuals in preparation for showmanship and rabbit bowl.
What I'm watching: My Sweetie and I rented The King's Speech over the weekend. I really like that movie.
What's cooking: Tonight I am making a friend's recipe; Chicken Broccoli Pasta - a very easy recipe because we are going to be out a lot today.
What I'm buying: Today is my monthly shopping. We are doing schoolwork this morning, then heading out to Winco, Trader Joes, Target and Costco. I also need to get a matte for my photos for fair. Oh, and Dasher still needs a white skirt for her uniform....
What I'm thankful for: A dear young lady at our church is offering a sewing class to girls this summer. Bookworm loves to create things with her knitting needle and crochet hook, so this would be perfect for her. I am very thankful for friends who share their talents.
What I'm creating: I am not working on anything particular this week...this is our busy season right now. But I have some ideas for next month.
What I'm praying: That I would remember how faithfully God forgives my sins and that I would be honest in admitting them to Him. And that I would be encouraged that knowing his forgiveness is what brings me true joy and happiness.
What I'm planning: Friday and Saturday are the day that our non-animal exhibits are due at the fair. So I am making sure we are all ready.
What we did this last weekend: We had a nice relaxing Saturday. We went for a bike ride with all six of us on bikes. Yup, Nutsy was on her own 2 wheeler. So I think we might be retiring the bike trailer. Then Sunday we listened to a sermon on Psalm 32 and had friends over after church. Then back for our monthly evening service.
What I'm looking forward to: Getting everything done I want to get done this week! School, fair stuff, shopping trips, house cleaning, laundry....

~These two can be so annoyed with each other one minute, and then be the best of friends the next. Obviously, this was a friendship moment.
