I'm joining Nadja over at Patch O' Dirt Farm with some Monday Musings. Join in, and make sure to link back to her space!
Right now...everyone is still sleeping. Lunches are made, backpacks are at the ready, clothes are laid out. The kittens are wrestling. It's still quite dark outside, and it looks like it'll be a cool and windy day.
This weekend...we stayed home! Friday night we had our usual pizza and a movie night (we watched "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (modern version) which the kids loved!). Saturday I ran into "town" to do one of those "stock up" shops (everyone needed new toothbrushes, I needed guitar strings for the club I'm running at school, etc). Violet went to a birthday party in the afternoon, and Jude and I visited a neighbour. They have three boys, so Jude was in his glory, playing a Wii for the first time and wrestling to his heart's content! Sunday was one of "those" days...when I attempted many things and didn't manage to accomplish any of them. I should have just hung out with my kids, knitting!
Some plans for the week: the calendar is remarkably blank this week, so it looks like we'll hang out at home, visit the library, and get through our work/school days. Thursday I'll likely have a gathering of women over to knit for the afternoon! Friday is the tenth anniversary of the day my husband and I met, so we'll be figuring out a way to get out for the evening, I hope!
If I find some time for myself, I'd like to watch a few more episodes of the first season of "Glee", make a bit of headway on some Christmas gifts, and perhaps go out for a walk or two!
I am grateful for my husband, for putting up with me when I'm premenstrual, and for my friend Gillian, who claims I'm the best "kvetcher" ever. Her laughter at my irrational bitchiness helped me to let it all go.
Some special prayer intentions for the week: for a friend who is having surgery and setting off on a long road to recovery, and his family.
Something that makes me smile: the long, rambling, on-the-spot songs Violet sings "I wiiiish....I had a Unicooooorn, but I won't give up! I'll keep siiiiinging....I'll siiiiing like the Little Mermaid...." all done in a high-pitched, repetitive tune.
Have a wonderful week!
