"She was dressed extravagantly and gaudily, as I would expect a Catholic to be!" Innocent Traitor, Alison Weir. L.O.L !
outside my window:
cooler and sunny. yay!
I am thinking.....
I am thankful .....
our Nicaragua boy returned safe and sound and very upbeat about his time there.
From the schoolroom. ....
well, we got the basement mostly cleaned and looking school-ish. Now it is time to tackle the books!
From the kitchen ...
pretty much too warm to cook anything exciting this week. I did make some chicken/lemon/rice soup, which Jed actually liked and wanted more of, so I feel like it was a score! ;)
I am wearing . ..
beige capri's, orange scoop neck t-shirt, orange bangle and hoops. I certainly am colorful lately!
I am reading and watching . .listening on cd :
Innocent Traitor, Alison Weir: which was a historical novel about Lady Jane Grey. I thought it was pretty well done, even though I generally don't like historical novels. Usually the *REAL* story is gripping enough.
Return of the Native: Thomas Hardy
Clover: Henry Adams wife. I gave up on listening to "The Education of Henry Adams" There was too much in there to read over and ponder, not easily done while listening. So, I found a book about his wife, which includes him, of course. Very interesting, so far. I need to find a hard copy of TEofHA.
I am hearing ....general chatter interspersed by silence. Dylan playing the guitar.
Around the house. ...basement cleaned and general organizing. Still need to work on backyard/frontyard and shed. And of course school, which takes precedent, at this point. :)
One of my favorite things. ..camping
What will we do this week. ...Naomi had a day out at the mall with friends on Monday. Tuesday, I had a night out :) at the movies with friends, Wed. cousin Matt Vrazo comes into town, so some visits with him today and tomorrow. Friday, Metro with some pals and Sunday, a Redeemer Reunion. Jax and George started soccer, looks like Dyl will assistant coach their team. Naomi continues on with her team after a lackluster tournament this past weekend. Why does soccer season have to start when school does? May I ask who came up with that plan? ;)
Here’s a picture I am sharing. ...Peek-a-boo!
I really don't know how those *squares* got in here. Naomi, help! :)
