Outside my window....the sun is shining and the forecast is for warmer temperatures this week. With fewer classes to work on maybe the weather will let me out to work in the gardens.
I am thinking...about music and the way that different kinds of music can touch people. In the morning when I sit here Layn will climb up on my lap and ask to hear various YouTube videos that I have played for him. I like to study his reactions as he listens to The High Kings and the nursery rhyme songs. He is enthralled with the bagpipes and the fiddles and truly enjoys the fine harmonies. By the same token he only tolerates the nursery rhymes because of the bright colors. It is interesting to me anyway.
I am thankful for...the start of this most holy of weeks that we have entered into. I look forward to immersing myself in meditation of the passion and death of Our Lord this week and then finishing up with the celebration of the Resurrection.
From the kitchen....there is enough leftover lasagna from yesterday to satisfy a small army today.
I am wearing...my nightgown still. Not really ready to shower and start the day yet.
I am creating...a couple of other versions of the dress that I entered in the contest. It gave me some ideas for changes both to the pattern itself and to the way that I had it trimmed.
I am going....to stay home today and get the week's worth of schoolwork done.
I am reading...Kreeft's Making Sense Out of Suffering
I am hoping....that the weather does stay nice this week so that Ian can get his corn in as well as his oats.
I am hearing...Melissa chatting with Layn as he gets his diaper changed.
Around the house...all is quiet, far too quiet. I love that my kids are growing up but the downside is that they all leave and take the noise of small children and home away with them.
One of my favorite things...having MK come home yesterday to eat with us and enjoy a little family time together.
A few plans for the rest of the week....have to run to town tomorrow to pick up my sewing machine and a special order of fabric then it is only to church that I will be going all week long.
Here is a picture thought that I am sharing with you...
He already has the intense "farmer" look down and he's not yet 2. This is Layn on Saturday watching Matthew dig with the backhoe. You can bet that he was making sure that Uncle Matt did everything right.
