Outside my window: A beautiful blue sky and sunshine!
I am thinking: Of chores to do, after just returning from our weekend trip, and preparations to make for the week ahead.
From the learning rooms: Hopefully, seed-starting this week, along with Eric Carle’s The Tiny Seed book, plus our Passover/Easter focus.
I am thankful for: A wonderful time of visiting friends and family this weekend.
From the kitchen: Ripe pears are in the fruit basket (they ripened over the weekend), and I am sipping a cup of “mama-to-be” tea. I should probably get started on a meal plan for the week!
I am wearing: Hand-me-downs from a friend (from this weekend)- a long denim skirt, and a black t-shirt with pink flower print, along with my old favorite red fleece socks and pale blue Fair Isle cardigan sweater.
I am creating: Easter greetings. I finished most of our cards for friends & family last week, and have a few more to get done this week.
I am reading: The ABCs of Breastfeeding
I am hoping: My seasonal allergy symptoms will significantly decrease, now that we’re back home.
I am hearing: Gen sipping on her milk, and enjoying the quietness of the neighborhood right now.
Around the house: Laundry is ready to be hung outside to dry. (I’ve already folded a few loads this morning.)
One of my favorite things: Celebrating new life.
A few plans for the week: Preparing for a Passover meal in our home with friends, sorting through some clothes for a children’s consignment sale, a morning ladies Bible study, visiting the thrift store with Calvin & Gen, and preparing for Easter dinner in our home with a friend.
A picture thought I am sharing: Palm Sunday photos! (Gen wore her Easter dress, for our Sunday with family.)
