What I’m INTO August 2014 Edition
This month has been full of dust, sun, new starts, laughter, frayed edges as the remodel work continues, as new school year gets going and summer dwindles down. Week four of no kitchen left me feeling out of it, and I discovered that while I am not frustrated or discontent, the adventurous energy that I started this venture with has dissipated and I feel as though I have frayed edges. Still holding it together and pushing forward, but with a little less gumption.
Read and Reading:
The Antelope in the Living Room by Melanie Shankle This book was a delightful piece of comic relief as my home continued the craziness of kitchen & bathroom remodel and sending the kids off to new school situations.
Sheba’s Song was another quiet time blessing.
Where There Was No Church, Families Where Grace is in Place, Clutterfree with Kids, Generous Justice
(I completed _2_ books this month, but read a chapter or 2 or more in several others.)
We turned Netflix back on and started where we left off with Dr Who. Slowly, the 5 of us have become Whovians to varying degrees.
I’m really enjoying the classical station on the way to school on Monday morning, and listening to the Newsboys as we continue to work on the house.
Things I Love:
This bench and these plans. Thank you for sharing Ana White!
In the Blogosphere:
~ “I’m slow to process, slow to think, slow to respond. Rather than fight against that, I’m learning to celebrate it in my own way.” Oh Emily, thank you for the admonishment to stop fighting my slow processing thoughts and responses! Spending some time this month pondering the idea of celebrating that aspect of introverted me.
My sisterinlove recently shared a link on facebook that led me to The Imagination Tree, oh my. This playdough looks like a recipe for fall fun with a precious little one I get to spend a few days a week with! I just can. hardly. wait. for the new kitchen!
