Joining Sandra today – LOVE her new HHM logo ^ … I can smell the lavendar. *sigh*
It has been 100+ degrees here every day lately during the day. I was reminded how thankful to be for a/c as I have several friends on the East Coast, particulary by Washington DC and in VA who didn’t have power for several days last week – and one friend (whose house I’ve stayed at) had a tree fall through their roof during the recent storm there!!
My Cat Who… books (by Lilian Jackson Braun), perfect, fun, mindless, entertaining, wholesome reading!
The Heart of Homeschooling by ____ Flicka (can never remember his first name!)
Introverts in the Church
still pretty much reduced to The Next FoodNetwork Star every Sunday evening … otherwise, random episodes of Chopped or Little House and the Walton’s on Hallmark. There was an I LOVE LUCY marathon on TV Land over the weekend – lots of laughs 🙂
My 2 “big kids” are gone this week so it is just my husband, Miriam, and I … I’m thinking really simple meals – hot dogs, mac-n-cheese, etc – and plenty of fruit and salad (love that blueberries and strawberries are still really inexpensive right now where we live!! oh, and PEACHES are coming into season!!).
get rid of the ants invading our house 😦
take my kitty to the vet – she’s been throwing up a lot lately and is lethargic and skinny …
clean up misc areas, straighten up, throw things OUT!!
get my discard pile to the local donation center or dumpster
just read this recently and went “DUH!!!” … you probably know this – but I didn’t. What to do when you open a can on broth but don’t need it all? Freeze it into portions in an ice cube try to use later! You can do that with several things that you only need a little bit of – I read you can do it for tomato paste, for example.
Miriam is “coloring” … She likes notebook paper and will scribble continuous zig-zag lines between the lines of the paper, kind of like she is trying to write. I have ordered her a K-2 curriculum (2 books) so we can start working on basic letter and number recognition … I am excited to get started!!
Otherwise, my house is quiet … the big kids are gone to their grandparents’ house this week. I miss them horribly. Miriam has taken it in stride – but she has made me her newest playmate to boss around: “Mom, sit! Play!!!! Play!!!” and thus I get the set up Little People zoos and rock baby dolls and “feed” them and change out the DVD player at her will. 🙂
From my Camera:
I don’t actually have my camera near – but here’s all I got saved on this laptop ^ : would anyone like to buy 4 wheels for a Chevy HHR (which is a ridiculous situation in and of itself as we don’t even own a Chevy HHR and are stuck with these things which my father-in-law wants me to sell for him … and I’ve been trying to do for YEARS now!!). GET THEM OUT OF MY GARAGE!
Those in the midst of various crisises right now: the wildfires in Colorado and the aftermath, those without power in the DC area, etc …
My husband has 6 open job applications out there … He still has a job until the end of July – but obviously, he’d love to get settled into his new job as soon as possible.
