So much of our week is spent moving from one activity to another with random bits of work thrown in between. Sometimes there is not much to say because posting that lesson 10 of Teaching Textbooks was completed or we are so close to finishing Life of Fred Elementary just is not all that riveting.
Grace asked me if I am going to keep blogging since lately a week or more may pass in between posts. My answer was yes, just sporadically, when I have something to say or share. Since I print out my blog yearly and they are favorite books of ours, I don’t want to abandon it even if it means that sometimes I am just reposting pictures already shared on Instagram. If and When Instagram allows for blogging formats with the ability to print, I think many bloggers will abandon their blog sites.
Spring happenings are taking place. We are getting some much needed housework done. First up was new front steps and walkway. Our house had the original 1930 concrete steps which were beginning to crumble. We were afraid someone would trip and get hurt. We choose brick to keep in character with the home, but added the bluestone to update it.
I have been keeping a 1000 Gifts journal for several months now. It is my place to reflect on my blessings, my prayers, and the things in my life I am truly thankful for, from a warm ray of sunshine to having new stairs. Blessings are everywhere and when times get hard or busy we often overlook what is right before our eyes. This journal keeps me centered. I thought it was time to encourage the girls to keep their own 1000 gifts journal. Perhaps their goal is 100, not 1,000 and while they have to be prompted to take it out, they always feel better after working in it. I told them it is just another way to talk to God.
Speaking of God, I love this church door. I drive by it often when I bring one of the girl’s friends home. I asked Lilah to roll down her window and snap a photo.
There have been trips to check out new delis in town, haircuts, horseback riding lessons, movie outings, and playtime with Gilly. There have been book club meetings and favorite pizza eating. Library trips and trips to Hartt School of Music.
