Around the House
Right now I'm maintaining and that's good. Laundry is caught up. Things are clean. About to put out our fall-themed decorations. And then the seasonal clothing swap starts. I really loathe that time of year, though it is never as bad as I think it's going to be, and I always dread and procrastinate way too much over it.
From the Kitchen
Been doing some cooking for my diet. Made fajita seasoning today for some chicken fajitas (wrapped in lettuce leaves) and it was so, so yummy. Another favorite dish is my apple "pie." I cut an apple into cubes and microwave it for about two minutes. In another bowl I mix plain Greek yogurt, a splash of vanilla, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a few drops of stevia. Then I pour that over the hot apples and sprinkle on a few walnuts. Mmmmmmm.
I could just gush and gush and gush about how much we are loving Classical Conversations. We enjoy the time in class each week and working on our memory work in between. The kids are doing such a great job with it -- they have exceeded my expectations. I am still trying to find ways to work further exploration of the topics into our schedule, but if I never quite get to it this year I am not going to lose any sleep. Next year it will be the core of our content curriculum. I am just so completely impressed by the entire program and what the kids are able to learn.
On the Blog
Sorry it's been a bit quiet. Will try to remedy that.
I've lost about 5lbs! It's hard to know exactly how many because I don't have a decent scale. Last time I weighed at my mom's house I was down seven pounds, but it was in the morning and the time two weeks before was in the afternoon. I am just estimating 4-5 pounds lost. I know for sure I am wearing some pants today I would not have been comfortable wearing a week ago. I'm on day eight, so nine more days to go on this phase of the The 17 Day Diet. I know this week is going to be tough, because chicken is getting old, but I am determined to push through. I still am not exercising as much as I want. Got to get better at that. I need more sleep.
Plans and Schemes
We have nature study at the local nature park this week! So looking forward to that, because you know how bad I am at nature study. After that lunch and playing at the park with friends. Not much going on this weekend. I'll have to work on that.
Reading and Crafting
I have been working on my dishcloth and another crochet project that is a gift for a friend. I am about four chapters in to Death Comes to Pemberley and so far it is pretty good.
Hmmm... nothing is coming to mind. I may have to change that this weekend.
