FOR TODAY
Outside my window...trees filled with orange and yellow leaves... a delight to my eyes after a few years of autumn-less living.
I am thinking...on how to foster love between the 5 year old and 3 year old sibs
I am thankful for... a husband determined to make his business work
From the learning rooms...we are focusing on steam power this week as we row Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel
From the kitchen... tuna melt roll (really, really good!!)
I am wearing...blue jeans and a blue shirt that i won't wear out in public because it is not a very pleasing shade.
I am creating...music in my head... not fit for public consumption
I am going... to unpack at least one box today if it kills me!
I am reading... the book of Daniel
I am hoping... that my husband secures at least two new clients before the end of the month
I am hearing...my 5 yr old playing with the 6 month old as he explores the floor
Around the house...is still a mess... but today, we get our couch! yippee!! something other than the floor to sit on :)
One of my favorite things... this delicious coffee i am sipping while the kids are engaged in BOB time (books on bed, created by a FIAR mom, Julie.)
A few plans for the rest of the week: make freezer meals for the family to eat while i work this weekend.
Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...

WOW. Is that your house?!?!?!? It reminds me of the cabin we had a summer vacation at!!!!!

Are you enjoying Daniel? I'm getting towards the end of my study of Daniel. It has been very eye-opening...

Hi Gin ~

Your post made me smile...the 5 and 3 year old and fostering love ~ by God's grace and lots of reminding/training. =) We have several that battle, thankfully not at the same time...working toward "Making Brothers and Sisters Best Friends".

I pray that the Lord prepares just the right clients for your husband and his business...He is always faithful to provide for our needs and always gives more abundantly than we could ask for in His perfect timing... =)

It was nice visiting your blog...enjoy the new couch and uhhh...unpacking. =)

Blessings ~
