What I'm thinking: That I don't know what to do with our cat. He was a stray that was abandoned, we started feeding him and called him our own. But the problem is that he has become the neighborhood bully and is attacking little dogs. I want to keep up good relationships with my neighbors so I am trying to find him a home but might have to take him to the feline rescue. The bummer thing is that he is such an affectionate cat...
What I'm reading: I am still reading The Quarter-Acre Farm by Spring Warren, I am really liking her humorous writing style and all the gardening tips too.
What I'm listening to: Silence. No one is downstairs yet, the kiddos are getting their rooms clean and doing their morning stuff upstairs. At least they are supposed to be doing all that.
learning: This week we are continuing on with school. The older two are doing a literary analysis of GK Chesterton, Dasher is halfway through her reading book, and Nutsy is chugging along in her phonics and reading. Which reminds me, I still have to head to our local homeschooling store and pick up the younger ones' handwriting books that have come in.
What I'm watching: The mornings are getting darker....I really do enjoy the fall, but those dark mornings after the time change I really do dread.
What's cooking: This week I am making Pesto Chicken, Shepherd's Pie, and a new Cooking Light recipe called Grilled Chicken Florentine Pasta.
What I'm buying: It is time for our monthly shopping trips...later today I'll be off to Costco, Wal-Mart, Trader Joe's and wherever else I need to go.
thankful for: I am thankful for my extended family. It was such a blessing to be able to have been with all of them this last weekend.
What I'm planning: There are a couple of 4-H things we need to start working on....the
summer flew and I can't believe that all the regular school-year stuff
is starting back up.
What we did this last weekend: We went up to Oregon and remembered, celebrated, and honored my grandpa. It was so bittersweet to see the pictures, hear the memories, and laugh at the funny stories. But I am so thankful and feel so incredibly blessed.
What I'm looking forward to: We have co-op this week, and Mr. Lego has a 4-H planning meeting for the rabbit project. I'm looking forward to deep-cleaning the kitchen floor. Not.
