Daybook 3 May 2010

Outside my window.... "And we will walk and talk in gardens all misty-wet with rain..."

From the learning room.... This week we start the digestive system, and we will study Alexander the Great and his legacy.

In my stitching basket.... Yes, I think I might actually stitch this week! I want to make more progress on "Mary, Queen of Scots." DMC 498 should brighten this grey day.

From my bookshelf.... I have been reading up on the historical figures I am teaching the girls about...I look wistfully at "Under the Tuscan Sun," and "Katherine of Aragon," by Jean Plaidy...

I am hearing.... The raindrops mixed with the sounds of Nutmeg's violin and piano playing.

From my kitchen.... We started the week with wholegrain blueberry muffins. Apparently, blueberry muffins are a "Nancy Drew breakfast."

I am thankful for.... the girls' dance opportunities. It was a long weekend full of rehearsals and recitals, but we have beautiful pictures and memories.

I am pondering.... the Communion of Saints and what it means to be a part of One Body.
