Outside my window…it’s raining.
I am thinking…rainy days are such a great excuse for a hot cup of tea and a chance to be lazy.
I am loving…the way William signs and says “stop” and “go”…it sounds more like “top” and “doe”.
From the kitchen…Fortified French Toast from The Sneaky Chef by Missy Chase Lapine (french toast with a nutritional boost…sweet potatoes and carrots…no, I’m not kidding…yes, it was delicious!).
I am wearing…jeans and a blue flowery shirt.
I am creating…all kinds of sneaky concoctions in the kitchen (worthy of a blog all of its own).
I am going…to finish ordering curriculum for next year…and then breathe easy for the rest of the summer.
I am reading…a knitting mystery.
I am hoping…to catch up on my to-do list (I had clingy children last week, remember?).
I am hearing…the soft pitter patter of the rain outside the window.
Around the house…ahh, finally, things are organized and the house is clean…all ready for company this weekend.
One of my favorite things…hearing the excitement in Joseph’s voice as he counts down the days until his birthday.
A few plans for the rest of the week: A morning at the beach, a trip to Barnes and Noble with my little birthday boy, visitors, a joyful birthday.
Here is picture I thought worth sharing…Last week we read Corduroy by Don Freeman and Joseph loved the story! After reading (and re-reading and re-reading), Joseph decided to dress his bear up as Corduroy. Then yesterday I was impressed when we went to walk at the mall and as soon as he saw the escalator, Joseph exclaimed, “Look! Just like in Corduroy. That’s an escalator, but Corduroy thought it was a mountain.” What a memory!
