For Today:

October 12, 2009

Outside my window...nada!  It's totally dark outside, or as dark as it ever gets around here (too much light pollution.)

I am thinking...that I better get myself off to bed so I'm not too exhausted for tomorrow.  School, you know :)

I am thankful for...3 sleeping kids.  They were bears today, so the silence is golden.

From the learning rooms... Getting back into the swing of things.  The Professor was unusually uncooperative today, that bear thing I mentioned.  I'm looking into ordering a new planner, and possibly making a few changes in curriculum.

From the kitchen...Chicken Diane, salad, apple wedges, and whole wheat biscuits.

I am wearing... blue shorts, a burgundy checked short sleeved shirt and bare feet (that STILL could use a pedicure).

I am creating...Mary for our Nativity.

I am bed!

I am reading...several things.
1. MOM's a Personal Journal by Paula Hagen and Vickie LoPiccolo Jennett. This is a study course to help us realize the importance of our ministries as mothers.
2. Full of Grace by Johnnette S. Benkovic. This is another study course to help deepen our appreciation and understanding of the Catholic faith, recognize the strength of prayer and the power of obedience.

I am hoping...that our Lord will give me some guidance on the curriculum changes I mentioned.

I am hearing...hubby snoring.

Around the house...finally getting back on top of things from being sick for a week.  And, Halloween decorations!  We finally got the house decorated for Halloween, I know it's not a traditional Catholic holiday, but the kids like it.  We keep it "clean" - spiders, bats, happy ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, etc.  NO monsters, possessed murderers or things of that nature.  The Professor and Velcro Boy were following me all over the place bugging asking me about hanging various things.

One of my favorite things...The sound of silence.

A few plans for the rest of the week: School, school and more school, a trip to the library, my Women of Grace meeting tomorrow night, more Halloween crafts, a trip to the playground.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is what happens to tomato soup when it's left on the burner for WAY too long.  *Someone*  (who shall remain nameless) heated up some soup after work one night and forgot about it.  This is what I woke up to the next morning.  I thought the pan was toast, but it actually came clean!!!  I soaked it all day, then filled with water and vinegar and dishwashing soap and brought it to a boil.  Boy did it stink!!!  Some of it chipped off.  I let it soak for a while longer and chipped away at it.  I must have found a weak spot, because the whole mess just lifted out.  A gentle scrub and it's good as new.
