Outside my window...Hazy Sunshine. A little chilly. Some frost overnight and I had to cover my veggies we just planted yesterday.
I am thinking...that I wish I had the house a little more together. It is starting to get to me. We are in a functional state, but not a peaceful one.
I am thankful for...a husband who knows how to make Mother's Day special. And a Mother and Mother-in-law who were understanding when we didn't see them on their Mother's Day. I really needed to be home with my family and it was wonderful.
From the learning rooms...(sigh). We aren't making much progress. And I flip-flop between "We'll catch up on the hot days of summer when everyone is bored" and "We're behind! We must do math! Go! Go! Go!" In reality, I'm opting for the first but inside my head the second one screams. We are finishing up our history reading and working on math facts but that is it.
From the kitchen...fish tank still resides on the counter. A pile of tools, paperwork, artwork, baby safety latches, etc etc resides on another. Thankfully we have a lot of counter space! But, nothing creative this week. Just getting by.
I am wearing...grey yoga pants, a blue t-shirt, and a fleece jacket.
I am creating...peace and harmony. Well, I'm gonna. Really!
I am going...diaper study on Tuesday, make-up piano on Wednesday, personal trainer on Wednesday, to the last co-op day on Friday. Grocery store in there somewhere. Exciting, I know. :)
I am reading...appliance manuals. And the Catechism.
I am hoping...to eliminate all boxes from all living spaces and most of the closets. No minor undertaking there. But my sanity requires it!! And in the process, I am hoping to find the random odd items we still can't find--legs for one of the couches, a missing foot for the dryer, parts to some shelving, my black dress shoes.
I am hearing...all the kids playing in the living room. It is getting kinda crazy in there!
Around the house...we put our vegetable garden in this weekend and it is huge! I'm so excited. And we got a little landscaping down the side of the house with transplants from the old house. It looks good!
One of my favorite
A few plans for the rest of the week: boxes, see above. Finish hanging some shelving, install baby locks on cabinet doors, put up a fence around the garden, mulch. Then on Saturday, we are having an Open House party with a little help from House Party.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
