My Daybook ~ September 8
Hosted by Peggy @ The Simple Woman
Outside My Window…is a rather warm, dry afternoon (yes I am late this week) with a bright red couch sitting in the middle of the yard. Everything else is gone–still praying for the perfect person to see it and fall in love.
I am thankful that…the rest of the furniture is gone from our front yard and that I know God has a plan for our poor beautiful couch.
From the kitchen…is a mess. We are moving the desk out so we have someplace for the china closet when we paint the living room. Yeah, we are painting the living room–all that open space is inspiring.
I am wearing…Old Navy shorts and top and Rockport Hiking tennis shoes–all thrifted of course.
I am creating…a new look for the living room, and the hall, and the kitchen, and the girls room. Yeah, I am nesting or something. That happens a few times a year and my poor hubby just smiles and nods.
From the learning rooms…
Both girls finished writing their books, Issac has been reading to me nightly. I got the kids a “math kit” from the school supply clearance at Target and Rach has been going about making charts and graphs–and insisted on getting 2 books on charts and graphs out of the library, yes, nonfiction books on different sorts of charts and graphs, on her own, because she wanted them. Um. Yeah. She has also been helping me figure out the area of the living room and hall so we can get laminate floor and paint the walls of the living room. Essie has been helping me paint her “new” desk, mixing colors to make the perfect robins egg blue. She has been reading, as usual, and is excited that we got the Bunnicula series on cd to listen to. Issac is waiting for them to finish watching Eloise (bought for $1 at the library) so he can watch his natural disasters video (also bought for $1 at the library).
I am going…to move some more furniture around and laer move the couch to the garage so it doesn’t get rained on. Also working on 2 seperate wiki’s for the new unschooling site, plus need to do some more organizing and gleaning of articles for the site: Christianunschooling.com. So far it is going well. 🙂
I am reading…some new books I got from the library (A Gail Carson Levine plus a compilation of King Arthur stories–an old passion of mine.) Also reading the new Lucky magazine and the IKEA catalog. 🙂 We are eventually going to need a new couch. 😉
I am hoping…to finish painting the desk and move it upstairs so I can get to work on moving furniture in the living room. Also hoping to figure out the wiki site so I can start posting to it.
Around the house…The girls are watching old videos from the library while Issac plays webkinz and in the tent in his room.
One of my favorite things…is installing a new program and it is WORKING! Woohoo!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Working on Wednesday for the antique appraiser I occasionally help out. I am going to be working once a week for her–which will hopefully pay for redoing the floor in the living room. Work on the wiki’s some more, gets things sorted out on the new site, etc. etc. etc. Nevermind all that, I really just want God’s will for this week, we will see what that is.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
James took each of the kids out on the motor boat–this is right before he turned it on and suddenly she was way above the water shrieking.
…and #129 on Peggy’s Daybook list today. I look forward to checking in with you every so often — and like what I’ve read so far.
Have a blessed and contented week,
That’s a great picture. When I was about that age, I rode in a boat just like that with an orange life jacket on just like that.
That’s great you got the other furniture sold!
I love that your kids are so eager to learn on their own, that’s so neat. I know what you mean about nesting, I do it about once a year and I’m doing it now, with some organizing projecs.
I would totally take that couch off of your hands. I have always wanted a red sofa. We bought a purple sectional before we became parents and it is wonderful… but that red couch desire has never left me!
