Outside my window...blue skies and the sun is shining yet again. It was supposed to rain today but they changed the forecast and it is going to be another beautiful Fall day :)
I am thinking...that I can't believe how TIRED I am - like completely and utterly EXHAUSTED....but my mind wants to do so much and I know I need to find the energy to get going!
I am thankful...for having such incredible children. They make my life amazing and I feel soooo lucky :) They really are great company.
In the kitchen...baking, crockpot cooking, pies, and using up a lot of frozen fruit. And today it is being decorated for Fall :)
I am wearing...black long sleeved T, jeans.
I am creating...a future that we all LOVE, a LSNED mini album for September. 29 Faces in September, and a whole HEAP of amazing memories for my children :)
I am going...to pick Trish up this evening and head to the farmers market to meet Lorraine....then we have a meeting at 7pm with a group of other women :)
I am wondering...how I am going to find the energy for everything in October - birthday, German student visiting..tons of field trips, new group starting....and that isn't even half of it!!
I am reading...about the educational value of Minecraft :)
I am hoping...that one more coffee gives me the kick I need to get through today!
I am looking forward to...our scavenger hunt and walk, firepit and smores with the homeschoolers at Elk Island next week - and also going to see the Ballet and Ukrainian dance this Friday :)
I am learning...that I am surrounded by good people :)
Around the house...I decluttered the art room and filled two BIG boxes with supplies for Sandy's daughter. It feels good to have space again. Otherwise the whole place is a mess from neglect as we are NEVER at home!!! lol!
I am pondering...why people assume if you are single then you are WANTING to date....I am really loving being single and have no interest in a relationship. I may well change my mind in future years, but for now I really like life the way it is - and not having to try and keep someone else happy. I like making all the decisions and I LOVE putting myself and my children first! Life is good - and much MUCH simpler :)
A favorite quote for today...
“Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”
One of my favorite things...Nescafe Hazelnut Instant Coffee :) Yummy :)
A few plans for the rest of the week... Farmers market with friends. Coffee night. Feeding the birds with the homeschool group. Meeting at school for the German exchange trip. Alberta Culture Days field trip to see ballet and Ukrainian dance. Field trip to FAVA. Behind the scenes tour of the Winspear. Strathcona Wilderness Centre Open House. Free admission day in Edmonton :)
A peek into my day...Today? coffee...followed by coffee...followed by MORE coffee - and some decluttering...and decorating for Fall :) Sort the last load of laundry. Pick Trish up and then head off and meet Lorraine. More coffee - with friends at tonights meeting!
