Monday Musings

Plans for the week ahead

For this week: Digestive System Co-op class Monday; soccer & Princess’s dentist appt. Tuesday; Pumpkin Carving @ nursing home, Tech’s dentist appt, & Fire Department Field Trip on Wednesday; dh Dr apt Friday; and Homeschoolers Barn Dance Saturday. Looks like we will be doing sit down schoolwork on 5 mornings this week including a small bit on Saturday. Working on fencing in the ducks this week and building a new shelter for them. The craft room organizing is ready for the next step.

Thinking about

My oldest daughter Gallop and her husband are expecting their first child in May. I would like to sew a layette for them. I need to look at what I have for patterns and figure out which on to do. I would like to only sew useful things for them but also a couple just cute things. They will be finding out what they are having so that will help with picking the material color out.

Out of doors

It looks like a beautiful week this week except for Monday. Hoping to focus on finishing up the bulkhead repairs before winter sets in. We have a friend who is willing to let us use a backhoe to finish the job. Maybe this is a good week for that.

In the kitchen

It will be chilly out this week so maybe a few soups will be on the menu. I know for class tomorrow I am planning on making edible intestines, sounds gross, but should be yummy. Also, on Saturday is the Homeschool Barn Dance and we need to bring soup or chili to that for the pot-luck part.

A photo from last week….

Here is a photo from out our front door. We sure do live in a beautiful part of the country.

Isaiah 66:2 “For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD “But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.”
