For today; Monday, March 9

Outside my window I see the lovely poppies in my neighbor's yard.

I am thankful for my thoughtful husband.

From the learning rooms I see finished creative writing projects from the 3 littles. They used similes to describe an animal. I also see the stack of math and grammar books that Meg and Josie used this morning.

From the kitchen we are enjoying roast beef sandwiches on sheepherder bread and fresh fruit for lunch.

I am wearing jeans, a long-sleeved shirt and my chicken-farmer's-wife shoes.

I am creating all about spelling card files for the 3 littles...a paper cutter can be such a nice thing!

I am going out for date night this evening with Sky. We are going to The Cheesecake Factory and then to Barnes & Nobles.

I am reading Brisignr and I am enjoying it almost as much as I did the first book.

I am hoping that the New Sonlight catalog arrives sooner than later, so I can order some things for Meg.

I am hearing the kids finishing lunch and laughing.

Around the house, we are enjoying a clean house as a result of having the bible college boys over for dinner last night. The house is still 'company' clean, let's see how long that lasts?!

One of my favorite things is the silk flower branches I brought home from Potter Barn, they are very nice to look at.

A few plans for the rest of the week; take Teddy to his tutor session today, maybe take the kids to Disneyland on Wednesday, plant the poppies Sky bought for me.

Here is a picture-thought I am sharing...
