What I'm reading: I'm looking through school books right now; specifically Lightning Literature and Write With World. It was lovely having this break from school, but as I am figuring out our schedule I am getting excited about next year.
What I'm listening to: The bird chirping in the kitchen....and
What we're learning: We have about two more weeks of our summer break....that gives me two weeks to figure out our school schedule and decide how to implement it.
What's cooking: This week I am making a couple of dishes from a cookbook I am reviewing; another night I'll be making a Romaine and Chicken Salad, and then on our slow-cooker day I am making Orange Chicken.
What I'm buying: I need to head out and buy 75 hot dog buns....another adventure is coming up.
What I'm thankful for: I am thankful for the house I live in. Sometimes I find myself complaining because the yard is too small, or there is not enough space for my books, but I have been so blessed living here, and know that this is exactly where God wants us to be.
What I'm creating: I bought a big bag of raw almonds from Costco recently and later today I am going to try to slow roast them in the oven. It is supposed to hit 97 degrees here today so I had better start these sooner rather than later.
What I'm planning: I have a review to write tonight, and I really want to update a big chunk of my family journal. Having this blog has made me lazy about updating it....so I really need to sit and write in it for a while.
What we did this last weekend: We went to a friend's on Friday for swimming and dinner. Saturday my Sweetie and I played tennis and then we did some chores around the house. Yesterday we went to church and then to our last summer picnic. There was good food, football, volleyball, and a water fight, of course. A certain young lady came up behind me and dumped an entire bucket of water right on my head...
What I'm looking forward to: Today a dear friend and her children are coming for lunch and I am looking forward to that. I am also looking forward to being with friends next weekend.
