daybook, february 21st

Outside my window...50 degrees, Fair, Feels like 50 degrees, Wind NNW at 13 mph, Humidity 74%, UV Index 0 Low, Dew Point 42 degrees F, Visibility 10.0 mi, Sunrise 6:43 AM, Sunset 5:51 PM (I heart my TWC app on my iPhone)

I am thinking...I shouldn't love my iPhone so much, and I should apologize to my husband for thinking he was crazy this past year for loving his iPhone so much
I am thankful unexpected text from my Momma this morning (can't wait for this weekend)

From the learning rooms...Immanuel, Rhode Island, Vermont (complete with pancakes and real Maple Syrup), Daniel Boone, finishing Amos Fortune Freeman, starting Madeleine Takes Command, listening to Tchaikovsky's story, Air...
From the kitchen...we had big pretzels and homemade cheese sauce for lunch, and BBQed chicken, baked beans, and real mac and cheese for dinner

I am wearing...jeans and an Army tee

I am creating...getting ready to write out my school plan for tomorrow

I am reading...The Excellent Wife, The Mysterious Benedict Society (aloud to the kids), thinking maybe, just maybe, I'll start Chosen By God (maybe)
I am Mom's vacation day is approved
I am hearing...silence (except for the fan, somebody pinch me!)

Around the house...pretty clean and tidy...announced at bedtime that Wesley and TJ's room and the upstairs Toy Closet would be getting an overhaul tomorrow...Korinne asked, "What's and overhaul?"
A few of my favorite things...Original-Scent Liquid Tide, April Fresh Downy, and Bounce Dryer Sheets (0 or 2)...I tried Charlie's Laundry Soap (and wasted $40)...tonight, I did my laundry the way I love, and the smell wafting from my laundry room is heavenly~
A few plans for the rest of the week: lots and lots of learning (so glad to be using my My Father's World TM again, makes my life so much easier, and our 'school' more fun!), ballet, library trip, and hopefully a busy weekend with my parents!
