Outside my window…there’s a kid going up and down, up and down. William invented a pulley system that has a swing attached to it. The kids can literally sit for hours going up and down, up and down. Quite the little engineer.
I am remembering…Grandma Belcher. Thanks, Mom, for sharing this picture. It makes my heart warm with memories.
I am listening…to the boys humming the theme tune for Star Wars. This tune is getting.really.old. I pray for patience.
I am wondering…why kids always have room for dessert, but they can’t seem to finish their veggies.
I am going…to try to get an order ready for Mountain Rose Herbs. I’m out of elderberries. I seriously need to just plant my own herb garden.
I am pondering…Madame Manec’s comment in All the Light We Cannot See, “I’d expect that if God wants us to see something, we’ll see it.”
I am thankful…for a selfie stick. We finally all fit in a picture.
Around the house…the Lego box exploded. There is a special place in Heaven for those of us who have to endure tiny plastic pieces. Seriously, it takes a force of nature for me to keep my mouth shut each time I step on one.
On the counter…a box of kleenex. This cold requires no small amount of kleenex. Probably worth buying stock.
I am wearing…dark gray corduroys and a many colored striped sweater. It’s nice to actually get to wear a sweater.
We are preparing for…the spelling bee and the science fair…tomorrow!
Someday I am going to miss…watching this kid run around with his backpack. Not really sure the obsession with the backpack, but I do know that it is filled with treasures and he keeps it on all.the.time. Seems like every time I glance out of my kitchen window, I see him darting around the backyard with it. Last week, he also had a briefcase he carried with him. He looked like he was on a super spy mission. This week, the briefcase is gone…perhaps he delivered his highly confidential package.
On my iPod…The Whole Brain Child by Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson. Absolutely fascinating.
A pile of library books is desperately craving my attention (and I am desperate to get started reading them!)…The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald; Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin (so excited about this one…who doesn’t want to master the habits of everyday life?!); A Disease Called Childhood:Why ADHD Became an American Epidemic by Marilyn Wedge.
A peek into my day…early morning snuggles.
