Outside my window... a bright blue sky with a few whispy clouds.
I am thinking... that I hope Elise is having a great time at camp this week.
I am thankful for... the Internet. How did we survive without it?
From the kitchen... tacos, I think.
I am creating... not much these days. I have so many projects that need to get finished... the master bedroom, Elise's room. Some day...
I am going... to book club this week. We are discussing The Giver by Lois Lowry - should be a good discussion.
I am reading... nothing at the moment. I have two library books waiting for me though. I'll start one tonight. This morning, I finished Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue. What a book! It was so good. It had moments of being tremendously creepy, but at the same time, it is such a sweet, touching story. It is told in the first person by Jack, a five year old. He has lived his entire life held captive in an 11x11 foot room where he was born after his mother was kidnapped at the age of 19. His mother does amazing things to make a life for them inside Room. This book is disturbing but powerful.
I am hoping... that J.C. hasn't broken any ribs. His pain from his bike wreck is getting worse, not better. That can't be a good thing.
I am hearing... Addie tattling on Nina, "Nina's watching a bideo."
Around the house... clutter.all.over.every.surface.
One of my favorite things... my mom's peach scrunch. She made some last night and invited us over for dessert. Yum. I really need to get to the farmer's market and buy some peaches.
A few plans for the rest of the week.... Elise is at sleep-away camp. Nina will be at ice skating camp. I signed her up for meals each day, so I don't even have to make lunches in the morning. This is our vacation-from-parenting week... two kids rather than three, and ten fewer lunches to make in the mornings! We're on easy street this week. :)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing... Nina at daycamp last week. She loved archery!
