What’s happening? How’s your Wednesday shaping up?
I really feel like this week is flying by. The boys have piano lessons on Thursdays and I feel like it was just Thursday, and now it is going to be Thursday again tomorrow already. Yikes. I guess time flies either way- when I’m really busy, or when I’m really not.
I had my half day off yesterday which was nice and today is a full day off. I didn’t do anything of much significance yesterday, really. I ended up “sleeping in” and it reminded me why I just really don’t like doing that anymore! I felt sad that I missed out on my usual morning quiet time. But, I had stayed up way too late on Monday night, and since it was a rest day on my workout program, I decided I needed some extra sleep.
I got my 3 Things done yesterday which were:
-read a couple pages of Usborne WWII book with the boys and watch the corresponding videos online (we watched an old video of Hitler and the Nazis as they entered Austria in 1938, and another of the British Prime Minister Chamberlain giving a speech about how he had had a “really good talk” with Hitler and he felt like they now really “understood what each other was thinking” and how he felt optimistic going forward. Hmmm… how’d that work out, buddy??)
-have lunch out on the deck (NOT at my desk!)
|We read out on the deck! I may need to stage a popcorn intervention in this household. It has now expanded from “movie time” to “reading time” as well. Ah, well. 🙂|
|The sun felt SO good yesterday!|
|Proof that I had lunch outside, checking off a 3 Things List item! After I took this picture, I put my phone away and didn’t read a book either; I made a point to just sit and eat my lunch outside. It was so nice!|
I ate a bit later lunch, as did the kids…and then it turned out that Ivan was going to be getting home later than usual last night, so after I worked my half day (in the afternoon) I loaded the kids up and we drove over to Culver’s.
My mom had sent the boys each a $5 giftcard to get some custard a couple weeks ago, just because, and they had been itching to go spend them. So, we decided to push our chicken dinner plans off until today and have custard for dinner! I got a Turtle sundae- something I hadn’t had in probably years– and it was delicious. It was a beautiful evening too. Culver’s has carhop service in the evenings, so we rolled down the windows and I played the Beatles station on Pandora and we pretended it was 1965. 😊
Oh, and Asher has decided he wants to start his own You Tube channel. I have no idea exactly what he wants to broadcast on this channel, but he was begging me last night to help him figure out how to set it up. I’m assuming something related to Minecraft or video games. Apparently I need to start by making him a separate email account. I promised him that we could look at it today. Kind of just sounds like something else I will need to monitor and keep tabs on, but, at the same time, I like the creativity!
