Sitting…on an end of the couch, Bama blanket draped over my legs, book in my lap.
Drinking…a cup of camomile tea
Reading…Wild by Cheryl Strayed. “A powerful, blazingly honest memoir: the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe — and built her back up again.” A story about backpacking and personal struggle? Yes, please!
Preparing…for a long day of shopping for new clothes and school supplies tomorrow.
Thinking…about everything I need to do to prepare for our new school year. I have 2 weeks to order books and get our room back in order.
Thankful…for friends and family; for skilled surgeons; for this mild summer; for grace.
Thankful…that I didn’t sign the kids up for all of our usual summer activities. We have thoroughly enjoyed not having to be somewhere everyday for a lesson or some other activity. I am glad for our 2 summer camp experiences (Student Life and scout camp). But I do not regret skipping all the other stuff we’ve participated in since my oldest was 6. We really did take a break this summer.
I’m going to get back to my book now. Goodnight!
