Sunday Daybook entry 6

Outside my window...
  It's a glorious sunny day! The skies are cloudless and I hear the temps are supposed to be really nice today. I hope to get outside and do some 'clean up' of leaves and such that has collected over the fall/winter.

I am thankful for...
  My time at Starbucks this am. My DH is sitting across from me this time. That makes me happy!


I am thinking about...
  #6 hasn't felt well for about a week. Tummy and bummy issues back and forth. I'm ready for her to feel better. The whining and all that goes with not feeling well...is getting old. And I know she's ready to be 'back to normal too'. Gotta get her better!

In the schoolroom...
  1 MONTH LEFT!!! The kids will be done with school May 3rd! We pushed to finish before my parents come to visit and before #4's First Holy Communion. It's going to happen! They're already starting to come to me with 'mom, I have 1 more page in 'this' book!' A couple of them have completed their math programs too! So happy and ready for summer! Also, ready to get my #1 ready to go off to her new school next year. Thank you, God, for this accomplishment in our lives!

From the kitchen...
  I made it through last weeks meal 'by the skin of my teeth'. Not sure why, but I still haven't planned April's meals. I need to do that tonight before the new week starts. I think Easter threw off my meal planning a little, but now I need to get back to it. Life is just 'that' much easier when I plan meals ahead of time.

I am creating...
  I'm in the very beginning stages of creating a special keepsake for a dear friend. I love digital scrap booking. I just wish I had more time to do it!

I'm working on...
  Communication. I'm not good at it. I struggle with it. I think I always will. My temperament is phlegmatic...what can I say. I like to ponder things. And sometimes that leads to getting distracted and forgetting what I was 'going to say'. It's a vicious cycle. Need to work on it.

I'm reading...
  Not doing much of this lately, but still have The Ministry of Motherhood in my night stand.

I'm praying for...
  My 2 brothers who are both struggling with Lymes Disease. Well, one brother for sure has it and the other brother has some of the same symptoms but hasn't been tested yet. Lymes Disease is scary...enough said. I'm also praying for my sister in law who is due with #6 this month.

I'm hearing...
  The 'groovy' music at Starbucks. I have no idea what it is. It's driving me a little crazy. Tune out! I'm good at that!

Around the house...
  It's not as picked up as I'd like, so we'll work on that today. And I'm thinking it's about time to put away the kids long sleeves and sweaters. Maybe?!
