For This Week~April 17, 2012
Outside my window...it is chilly with rain all day.
I am thinking... about ways to save our family money. We have cut out our home internet and Netflix service. They are certainly things we can live without! The Prudent Homemaker regularly does posts on Facebook of her frugal activities. They are very motivating!
I am thankful for...our local library where I am right now using the free internet! The library is also providing very informative and fun classes and game days for homeschoolers.
From the learning rooms...We are trying to finish up some things in order to move into a much more relaxed summer schedule. We will be doing lots of reading and interest-led learning this summer! I also plan to work on ACT prep with my oldest son at least two days per week.
From the kitchen...This morning we made a large batch of pumpkin muffins, applesauce muffins and two loaves of whole wheat bread. Growing in our kitchen window:
I found this on Pinterest a few weeks ago and wasn't really sure it would work. I found more information at this very interesting blog.
I am wearing...a denim skirt, pink turtleneck sweater and loafers.
I am creating... Boston Red Sox socks for my oldest son. Since he wears size 13 shoes, this is quite a task! One down, one to go! I made a knitting needle case using this tutorial with a few alterations.
I am going...to the library today, co op and grocery store on Friday.
I am reading... 11/22/63 by Stephen King. Amazing!
I am hoping...that we can have a very productive week in school and home! This is my hope every week!
I am hearing...semi-quiet voices at the library.
Around the house...I am planning to plant my herb bed as soon as the rain stops. My husband has it all tilled and prepared for me.
