Homeschooling – Shuffling just a bit more responsibility for time management onto Aaron’s plate this week. Growing up and assuming more responsibility is tough on a kid! Ordering books and music for the boys’ upcoming study of folk music.
Home – Looking forward to rearranging a few things in my home to change up the look a bit.
In My Kitchen – Nothing special, and that’s sad. I’ll have to see what I can do to remedy that situation as the week progresses.
Home Projects – Finishing up the boys’ room. I think. There will be pictures of our progress so far later this week.
Reading (Bible & Other) – Reading through the minor prophets of the Old Testament, and slowly working through the book of Romans in the New Testament. Psalms and Proverbs are a mainstay. In other reading, I’m still working my way through Lord’s Beacon Lights of History, Volume I. Now that I’ve made my way to the biblical patriarchs, I’m finding the reading easier to digest. I’m also reading here and there in Common Sense and Cry, the Beloved Country. Not sure, yet, what I think about Glenn Beck’s book, but I am enjoying Paton’s novel. I’m also thoroughly delighting in Jane Brocket’s, The Gentle Art of Domesticity. I’m reading it slowly, drinking in all the wonderful, colorful, lovely photographs and savoring her words about domestic life.
On the Zune – Music. Music. Music. Book. Do you enjoy a wide variety of music? Broaden your horizons this week. Try something new, or listen to something you enjoyed in high school or college. There’s a lot of joy to be had in sharing the music of your youth with your kids. Not sure what the neighbors might have thought about it, but Dani, Aaron and I had a blast Saturday belting this one out from Dani’s childhood.
In the Sewing Nook & On the Needles – Oy! That’s about the best word to describe it. The sewing nook is still in shambles, and my socks – Double Oy! I realized late last week that the reason I could not get the proper gauge for the pattern was because I was using the wrong weight of yarn. sigh….. I found a different pattern, cast on and have the first sock under way.
Special Events This Week – A long, belated birthday dinner for Copper’s dad Monday evening, driving friends to the airport later in the week, and the Fortnightly Marketing Peregrination.
What does the coming week look like for you? I’d love to hear about it.
God bless you as you look well to the ways of your household!
