My Daybook

For today, Monday, October 19, 2009

On my tired I am; it was a busy weekend!

Outside my is dark. A little warmer today which felt good after the horrendous rain we had yesterday and the SNOW on Thursday!

What We're Reading...I'm taking a break from The Grapes of Wrath and am now reading White Ghost Girls (for the Take A Chance Challenge). I also read The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane (Tucker had recommended it to me!). Tucker's favorite books this week were So You want to be an Explorer by Judith St George and Castaway Cats by Lisa Wheeler. In school, his teacher is reading The Cricket in Times Square (which we read this summer); he's excited that his name is one of the characters (he told me "Tucker's a mouse and we have something in common: we both love money!")

What We're Listening to...I finished Black Beauty and am now reading South of Broad by Pat Conroy. It's one of those books I'm glad I'm listening to because I wouldn't get anything done; I'd want to read it until it was done!

What We're Watching
...the usual shows.

I am post the Cancer Relay and retirement party pictures this week (but not tonight!)

Quotable Quote..."Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things" ~ Robert Brault

A Funny of the girls on Tucker's soccer team was telling the coach that she wouldn't be at the game last Saturday because she was going to be in a wedding. The coach, playing with her, said "you're getting married?!" She rolls her eyes, sighs, and says "no I won't be able to get married for a long time!" (she's in 1st grade!) I congratulated her dad on the good training!!!

In the Kitchen...finishing up the pizza leftovers from the weekend; spaghetti and meatballs; chicken pot pie.

Around the House...definitely could use some attention! We weren't home all weekend!

Coming Up This practice Tues and Fri...Cub Scout Den Meeting Wed...haircut Thurs...I'm off Fri to clean the house...Cub Scout Halloween party Fri night...Soccer game Sat...demo derby at the Speedbowl Sat afternoon with Tucker's friend Andrew and his parents...carving pumpkins Sun.

No picture thoughts this week...taking way too long to load!
(don't worry I will make up for it!)

The little girl getting married- so cute!

My kids love it too when they discover a book or song with their name in it. Very fun!

I love the picture at the top of your post. I don't even really like apple cider but it looks so fall-y and festive.
I like how you include the books Tucker is enjoying. I often end up checking them out for my kids.
