7/13/10 Daybook



I am thankful for...
*Our local library! Our library trips on Tuesdays are a highlight of our week.
*Our local Books-A-Million--after the library today we went to B-A-M because the kids had some $$ to spend.
*Kids that love to read!!!

From the learning rooms...
*I don't even want to think about school starting back soon. Thankfully, learning never stops!
*I'm sticking flashcards with Spanish words everywhere :).

From the kitchen...
*The lunch mess waiting to be cleared away....

I am wearing...
*Jeans, tunic, apron, toe-ring :)

I am creating...
*A mess--got to get to those lunch dishes!

I am going...
*To my exercise class with friends tonight :).

I am reading...
*The Bible--just began the Read the Bible Through in 90 Days plan. I'm reading in Leviticus now and am so thankful that Jesus' sacrifice paid for my sins so that I don't have to depend on animal sacrifices!

I am hoping...
*To go Back Home this weekend to see family!

I am hearing...
*Near-silence, as my children peruse their new books.
*Occasional outbursts from youngest :)

Around the house...
*Laundry everywhere!
*Pieces of cardboard from N.'s projects
*Cat and dog hair--ugh.

My favorite things...
*Chocolate-covered coffee beans
*Books

A few plans for the rest of the week:
*Making more Spanish vocabulary cards
*Church tomorrow night--I'm leading Girls in Action this week
*Packing to go Back Home :)

A few pictures for thought...



Our latest attempt to save money involves learning to give haircuts. Our friend T. graciously gave us a lesson :). Result: Hubby, N., and M. look like new recruits, we saved big bucks on haircuts and shampoo, no more messy bedhead!

Chocolate-covered coffee beans? Sounds like my sort of thing! I've got to go and clear the lunch things and get started on supper and here I am reading your blog! I guess it'll be just fish and smash tonight. Why am I so lethargic after school?? School has only beeng going for 2 days after winter break.

Jen,
Glad you liked the pics. Tina was fearless! I, however, am a big chicken where haircutting is concerned :).

Miekie,
I usually avoid coffee w/ caffeine but I love chocolate--choc-covered coffee beans give you a burst of slightly bitter coffee goodness combined w/ dark chocolate--yum! I'd love to know how to prepare fish & smash :).

You know I cut my own hair, would have been glad to help you. Maybe with Em and K?

UB,
When can you squeeze K. & E. in for hair appointments? LOL I did trim K's bangs yesterday but that's all she'll trust me to do....
