I am wearing... Jeans, a purple top, and red socks
I am thankful for... Everyone being well and contented, dinner with my family, no one particularly needing me at the moment.
I am thinking about... Not too much, and that is lovely.
Learning all the time... reading. My second grader and my kindergartener are learning to read. That is also lovely.
From the kitchen... Well, we ate out tonight, and we've been having leftovers that I put in the freezer after our kind friends brought meals a few weeks ago when Jenny Wren was in the hospital. I did make a delicious cranberry cake the other day, with the recipe shared by Matushka Emma. It was so yummy!
I am creating... slowly working away at an afghan I've been crocheting here and there for a couple of years. Also a little book to hold icons for my goddaughter. And coloring with Bluejay in his kestrel coloring book.
I am working on... peace and gentle discipline in the home. It's working!
I am going... to help make piroshki at church tomorrow, maybe.
I am hoping... for the peacefulness and routine to continue for a little while. It was a rough first few weeks of the year. For Jenny Wren to be excited about speech therapy. I think she's gonna love it.
I am reading... hmmm. I have my fingers in a number of books lately. Snuff by Terry Pratchett, God's Path to Sanity by Dee Pennock and rereading Green Dolphin Street by Elizabeth Goudge.
I am praying... daily prayers and scripture readings.
I am hearing... the children getting ready for bed; my husband requesting the occasional help as he tidies up the school/playroom/garage (it's all one room!).
One of my favorite things... daybooks :-) this makes me cheery.
A few plans for the rest of the week... Church, homeschooling, a dentist appointment for Bluejay and a visit to the orthopedic specialist for Bluejay as well. He took a fall on his bike and it turns out he broke a bone in his left arm near the wrist! So he's in a splint until we can get it appropriately treated, as early as possible next week. The doctor
Some picture thought I am sharing with you...
