My Daybook, June 16

16 June 2008
Stop by Peggy's for more entries.

Outside my Window...
Bright sun, puffy clouds, bulldozers and jackhammers. Yes, they are still working on the seawall and docks by the beach.

I am thinking...
About meeting a friend in town today at Ft Zach. This is one of those playdays that just kept getting bumped back and back but not today! We'll have a ton of fun, I know!

I am thankful for...

From the kitchen...
Coffee, need you ask at this hour?

I am creating...
A pretty lime-green cover for Marianna's dinghy this week - oops! Still hoping to make that cover!

I am going...
To switch back to French with Marianna. Spanish was a failure from the get-go and she is enthusiastic about French. Time to stop fighting it.
Tu peux m'aider?

I am wearing...
A turquoise peasant skirt with sparkles, a black tank and a beaded necklace with matching bangles from my dear sister (thanks Michelle! Still love it after all this time!). A straw bucket hat and silly sunglasses will complete this outfit. Oh, and shoes. I guess I'll need some shoes to go into town. Perhaps dark blue sparkly sandles with a woven straw bottom.

I am reading...
Marianna and I are reading aloud Surviving the Applewhites. Hilarious homeschooling book!

I am hoping...
for a crafty, crafty week. Perhaps even teaching Marianna to knit. Wouldn't that be fun?

I am hearing...
Jackhammers. Yuck. Oh great! Did you know that if an F-18 flies over a construction zone it actually will drown out the noise?

Around the home...
Bin of 7th grade work that I need to organize into a binder some time before 8th grade. :)

One of my favorite things...
The smell of the caper berry bushes in bloom.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...
Easy week, it feels like this might actually be the first week of summer for us. I wonder why it feels different this week from last? Maybe its me. Maybe I've finally settled into summer mode.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you:

Certain books call for crunchy apples.
Little Women is another.

Marianna headed out, list in hand, to see how many Invertebrates she could find locally - without swimming, though wading was permitted!
