Out my window: wind. It is sunny with high cottony clouds wafting across the sky. The crab apples are all blushed and swinging wildly from the tree in the orchard.
Listening to: "Blue 42 - hike! Floor to table. Hustle hustle hustle!" Kieran is leading schoolroom pickup. Chores are just more fun during football season. ; )
Musically- am loving BBC radio. Loving it. I am picking up a radio for the kitchen so I can bring all that fun out of the car where I linger in the driveway when we get home. New fave - Jerry Douglas.
Reading: finally finished Jane Austen's Emma since I have been reading other things with it. It really picked up after page 300 fwiw. It was a fantastic read considering nothing actually happened in all 400 pages. Not an action title to be sure, but spot on characterization. You will see people you know in those pages.
Afterwards I began "Horses Don't Lie About love". Sorry no links. Story about a woman who moved out west and began a horse farm with some nearly feral stock. Totally different tone from Ree Drummond but I love a good memoir.
From the learning rooms: making new file games. Journaling. Lots of art. Tess' reading is taking off.
Creating: embroidery. Tess has been working on a back stitched pear for a tea towel. I had Moira sit with her supervising when I had to leave the room. Moments later Moira announced she wanted to sew. And she did. A butterfly, a shamrock and finally a large DANCE on her dance shorts.
Around the house: been here long enough to have to clean the cabinets out in the kitchen. Feeling much tidier now.
Plans: football practice - the new normal. A date which will likely net a new computer set up this weekend. Which means all kinds of fun for my camera with the over flowing memory card. ; )
