On my to do list:::Homeschooling
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::During movie time, I've been working on my big beast of a ripple blanket, it's slow going but it's coming along :)
Got a new crochet book this weekend and I plan on starting some projects on there.
Still working on the Tabbard for my husband, it's done except for the design on the front, THAT is going to take me a while.
In Homeschooling:::Jasmine is learning all about the skeletal system in Science and in Social Studies she will be learning about the midwest. Nicholas will be doing a Science Unit Review and taking a Language Arts test.
Looking around the house:::It's a holiday so everyone is home. Hubby is on his computer playing Castleville, Nicholas is playing a game on the Wii and Jasmine is on the couch with her laptop. My dishwasher is running, my washer is doing a load and aside from giving the kitchen a quick clean, I plan on relaxing with the family today.
From the camera:::Been relaxing on here quite a bit, loving the new couches they are so comfortable :)
Something fun to share:::There are so many great blogs out there that I love and there are those that just catch my eye and keep me captive for a long time, those are the ones that I find myself with a cup of hot coffee in hand, just scrolling and scrolling and scrolling and telling myself "Just one more", but hours later I'm still there. Violet Bella is such a blog for me, the owner is stunning, has a really cool sense of style and is always sharing neat things :) Go on over and take a look.
On my prayer list:::So many people needing prayers right now. Family, friends.
For me, I just ask for prayers for health and for patience, I have a tendency to over worry about things and drive myself crazy.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
