Daybook for October 12th, 2010

Outside my window...
It is gray and damp, forlorn looking.  The brilliant colors are just appearing, not yet bright enough to counteract the dullness of the weather.

I am thankful for...
Absolutely everything, God's provision is perfect in all things.  Last week He cleaned my carpet.! 

Around the homeschool...
Jenny is done, she sat and did most of her lessons last evening so she would have a short day today.  She began going over her material for the National Mythology Exams in the spring.  Rowan is downstairs working on Algebra.  We are sorely disappointed with the BJU distance learning Algebra 1 teacher but it is a good lesson for her to learn.  She will encounter other bad teachers in her life and be grateful she learned how to learn in spite of them.

From the kitchen...
Mike is making something to eat and is puttering about and spluttering about something being too hot.

I am wearing...
A black long-sleeve t-shirt, my black sweater, black pants and Uggs.  
(Which is a shock I am sure, lol)

I am creating...
Nothing as yet but I am going to get my pattern books out and find a lovely project to begin making Christmas presents.  Perhaps mittens?

I am going...
I don't actually have to go anywhere until Rowan's piano lessons at 5:00 but I may bop out the the library to return some books and see if others are in. 

I am reading...
I had gotten Mark Twain's Roughing It for the Dewey Read -a-Thon and didn't get to it, today in Jenna's American History we learned about Mark Twain so I began it with her as a read a loud.  I am also reading in the Book of Joshua, the 5th Book in the Temeraire series, and I am listening to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
I am hoping..
That Mike continues to have work throughout the winter.
I am hearing...
Jenna in the kitchen singing some of the Seeds Family Worship songs and making herself pasta for lunch, Rowan downstairs listening to the BTVS musical while she works on Algebra, and our birds singing merrily.

Around the house...
We have begun getting ready for the winter, the wood stove room has been cleaned up and the chimney cleaned.  Mike has painted much of the living room and it looks so new and bright and cheery.  The curtains and the futon cover have been washed and are fresh and clean too.

One of my favorite things...
Caramel apples.  Made this week by Rowan from apples we picked ourselves.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Weather depending, park day on Thursday, Bible study on Friday, St. Barnabas Clothing sale on Saturday.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
The silver of the bayberry is so lovely, shimmery among the turning green of it's leaves.
