***Things I'm thinking about...Planning for next year. I keep thinking I am going to start and then other things come up and I don't. This week I hope to make a list of books we need for Rose for Sonlight Core A. We own a lot of them already, so I will not be buying a Core package. We also have a great local used book sale coming up in a couple of weeks and I am hoping to find some of the books used.
***Barn & garden happenings...Still boiling. I think we have made a little over a gallon of syrup now. I need to divide my kale seedlings this week. The baby lettuce plants are doing well and hopefully will go out to the cold frame in a couple of weeks, weather permitting.
***In our kitchen... Stone soup with Rose this week and some Vietnamese cooking for Christopher's Vietnam project for Core F.
*** In our homeschool...Rose and I are working our way through the Magic School Bus Dinosaur Kit. I ordered GEMS Life Through Time and it is supposed to come this week- I am excited to sit down and look it over!
***Creating... My cowl was coming along nicely until I realized that I knit two rows back-to-back, creating a noticeable funkiness in the pattern. Sigh. Now I have to figure out if I should try ripping it back a few rows to fix it (but it's a ton of stitches and I am afraid to do it) or just live with it (but I want it to look good!). I really hate knitting mistakes.
***A few plans for the week ahead... Warmer temps, I hope. A field trip to the sugar shack. A trip to the movies to see Muppets Most Wanted. Putting up a few Easter decorations, maybe. Making some maple sugar candy.
***And another birthday come and gone....Time goes by so very quickly.
Enjoy your week!
