What I'm thinking: Right this moment? That my cup of Peach Tea I am drinking is lovely. I will drink coffee occasionally, especially if I was up until 2am talking or playing games (this has happened twice over the last 5 days), but tea is my morning beverage of choice.
What I'm reading: I have not picked up a book since last Tuesday. And I think that was a cookbook....I made a big coffee cake and a fun snack mix to take to our family reunion.
What I'm listening to: Humming in the kitchen. Do you hum? My kids hum a lot. And I love it when they hum; humming usually means you are happy and that is a wonderful thing.
What we're learning: We are on our summer break now, and this is our first full week at home with no learning obligations. But we are always learning....
What I'm watching: The weather heat up. We were in Oregon for a few days last week and I think the high one day was 83. On our 10 day forecast here, every day it will be over 90. Of course, I love it.
What's cooking: I am not sure. I did not plan a monthly menu this month for the first time since I can remember. Instead I am kind of doing weekly planning so today I need to sit down and think about what to eat this week.
What I'm buying: Except for our groceries, I can't think of anything I need to buy this week.
What I'm thankful for: I am so thankful for our extended family. We just spent a few days with about 25 of them during our family reunion and we had such a good time.
What I'm creating: I am thinking to do some fun stuff in the kitchen this week. Maybe making some fun ice pops with fruit for the kids, and maybe a watermelon granita for the adults.
What I'm praying: That even during the busy times, I would remember my relationship with the Lord. And that I would be more faithful to daily prayer and reading the Word.
What I'm planning: I have a couple big things on my to do list this week: finish planning out the science for co-op, and get caught up with my homeschooling review writing.
What we did this last weekend: We were in Oregon with our family....we ate yummy food, played games, had good conversations, swam in the pool, and relaxed.
What I'm looking forward to: A semi quiet week at home; I think we'll go swimming a lot, I'll have a game afternoon with the kids one day, and maybe we'll get together with friends.
