Having...Nothing to say that seems worth your reading. I've been the one reading lately.
Reading....toooo many books. I love using PaperbackSwap*. I have most recently received, via that site, Newman's Own Cooking, a book on Biblical foods (I think this would be great for a family feast during a series of lessons on the Old Testament -- or a unit study), and a book on Tuscany (I thought it was a cookbook, but it's about an old house someone bought there. My neighbor borrowed it before I finished it, so I don't know if it's any good.)
Feeling....sore. My back has been giving me so much trouble lately! I set up an appointment at a chiropractor, but I doubt the stress of going to a doctor (I'm doctor-phobic, even though I was a nursing major) and paying what I'm sure will be a million dollars, can possibly be helpful.
Studying...Video game designing (the 11yo son) and Cooking (the 9yo daughter). Can you imagine how tickled I was when she said, "I want to learn to cook Breakfasts and Lunches, so you never have to do them again!" I let the kids choose a subject to pursue in depth. They'll write me weekly reports and we'll figure out other ways to keep it educational. They can change subjects at any time. I think we'll use some of Cindy Rushton's tips on Notebooking for this idea.
Finding...a beautiful Tarragon plant in my garden. It's sunny yellow flowers are so bright! Also blooming in the wild are Goldenrod and Black Eyed Susans and several purple and blue flower varieties.
Canoeing...down the river with part of our family in one canoe and my parents and a couple of kids in their canoe. It was such a lovely way to spend an afternoon! We all got wet, of course.
Going...back to Orlando this week, but this time with only Tim. It's a business/pleasure trip. We are very excited about it, and about getting some alone time, too. Thank God for grandparents who will watch the kids!
*PaperBackSwap.com is a site where you can list books that you'd like to give away. You'll receive points for books sent out, which you can then use on books that you'd like to read. If you join, mention Dreamwords as a referral, and I'll get a free book point. It's okay if you don't do that -- join anyway!
