It's been a busy but happy weekend around the House. Cooking, reading, cleaning, working, writing, organizing, Christmas shopping....a bit of nearly everything. I've had a few days of low pain and it's tempting to overdo on weeks like this, but I almost can't help myself: when it doesn't hurt to walk, I want to!
And is it October tomorrow? Oh my goodness...
Still listening to Atlas Shrugged on the iPod whenever I get a chance. I am still loving it, but I have to admit to being surprised at how...well, how racy it has been in parts for a novel that was published in 1957 and enjoyed such wide acclaim. It's definitely a different strain of racy than today's novels, but I've been careful not to have it on when kids are around since I'm not sure if there's more. If you listen to this one (and I do recommend it for several reasons) be careful. And don't get the unabridged version unless you're willing to listen for something like 52 hours!
I'm getting really excited about getting our new home office furniture here! The last word I've had is that it's "in transit" from Denver so it shouldn't be too much longer. And it can't come a day too soon...ever since I made the purchase I've been letting things pile up around here thinking that any day now I'll have an easy way to get it all organized. I'm sure the Papa is wondering if he's going to have a place to sleep before long!
Those of you who live in the greater San Antonio area, stay tuned this week. I plan to post some fun educational and entertainment opportunities coming up here in October.
The boys and the Papa thoroughly enjoyed their history field trip to Gonzales yesterday. I remember taking an entire year of Texas history in 7th grade and I hated every day of it...if I could have "studied" it this way, I might have been a fan for life! Thanks to Lisa for organizing this and other trips to bring the great history of the Lone Star State to life for the kids in our HOPE group.
Grandson Warren, who lives in northern Virginia, was diagnosed with Lyme Disease this week after several weeks of puzzling symptoms and finally a huge, fluid-filled pocket on his knee. He's now on the high-powered antibiotics and we are praying for his quick recovery with no complications.
Shannon, we're getting anxious to meet your new little one. How about a nice long walk around the
Snip, snip, that's all folks. I'm off to nap...
