For today...Monday, August 24, 2009
Outside my window...it is dark out and thankfully the humidity has gone away for now!
On My Mind...Thanks to the wonders of digital cameras, I had a rude awakening this weekend when looking at pictures we had taken and I have decided, enough is enough! Weight Watchers here I come!
What we're reading...I am currently reading My Sister from the Black Lagoon . With Tucker, we finished Mercy Watson: Something Wonky This Way Comes by Kate DiCamillo and also read Ice Cream Larry by Daniel Manus Pinkwater, Tornadoes by Gail Gibbons, An Extraordinary Egg by Leo Lionni, and Mayday! Mayday! A Coast Guard Rescue by Chris l. Demarest. Tonight we started Mercy Watson: To The Rescue by Kate DiCamillo.
What we're listening to...I'm halfway through The Alchemist's Daughter. With Tucker, I listened to Minnie and Moo Save The Earth.
I am hoping...to sleep well tonight. Last night, not so great.
Quotable Quote..."Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you."- Carl Sandberg
A funny thing...we took Tucker and his friend Isaiah to the Roger Williams Zoo and as you drive in through the park, there's a huge pond. On the pond was this large duck family floating (there were probably 7 or 8 babies!). Tucker says: "Look , Mommy, a whole fleet of ducks!"
Coming Up This Week...Soccer practice Tues and Thurs nights...Tucker's going over Isaiah's house Thurs...a birthday party for Tucker's friend Maddie at Chuck E. Cheese on Sat...Tucker's going over William's house Sat after the party...a reunion meeting Sat afternoon...maybe letterboxing on Sun (I found the stuff finally!)
Some Picture Thoughts...
Tucker and I finally got to meet my cousin Kristen's twins, Chelsea and Adam, on Saturday. Adam slept most of the time we were there so these are pictures of Chelsea. I call this one "who are you and why are you taking my picture?"
"Oh, okay...you're related...that makes me laugh!"
