Status report, Feb. 2nd....

Something needs to get me started this week and this morning. Lisa's Status Report is a good start.

Grateful.....that today is Thursday. Sleep in day. Recuperation day. Roam around in comfy clothes day. The week was stressful. Today is for recovery. spinach, peanut butter, banana, blueberry yogurt smoothie. (Breakfast is late today. See above.) And my coffee is right behind the smoothie.

Studying........1 Corinthians 1-7. It is a great deal of material to go through, but the first chapter gets me all fired up with my purpose for studying the Bible anyway--to know the wisdom of the Cross and Christ crucified though the whole world thinks it foolish. upcoming homeschool convention trip and a tour through Washington, D.C.

Fighting.....a weather system headache. Our wonky 30 degree ups and downs in 24 hour periods plus rain plays havoc on my sinuses.

Thinking.....about what must get done today and what can wait because today's focus is some much needed recovery. Two of the five in this household are fighting upper respiratory infections so not pushing past the essentials, hopefully, will keep the rest of us from coming down with the junk.

Loving.....the Downton Abbey series. As so many are. I convinced three friends to watch the first season and then watch this second along with me. Then we share our favorite Violet lines with other another in our best British accents. Hy-ster-i-cal! because the fifth grader needs math assistance. Bring on the coffee!


  1. Hope everyone manages to stay healthy there!

  2. First, you need to talk to me before you enter the Beltway. I have words of wisdom. Second, my favorite Violet-ism is "I'm a woman, Mary. I'm supposed to be contrary."
