Noticing Notes

Noticing Notes

After fourteen weeks of summer break, my kids went back to school this week. They attended school on Tuesday, and we had our first homeschool day on Wednesday. I decided that on homeschool days, I am going to keep a little notebook handy to write what I call “Noticing Notes.”

19 for 2019

I wasn’t sure I was going to post my “19 for 2019” list, but after having breakfast this morning with my friend and fellow writer Missy, I decided to err on the side of blogging today. I am still in neutral after quite a lot of focused writing time last year, and I’m not sure what’s next.

No Baths

No Baths

I have two close friends who take baths almost every night, but I never take baths. Who has the time? Then again, my friends would probably say, Who has the time not to? After a recent conversation with a gal from church about Epsom salt - or is it salts? - I am open to that possibility. Otherwise, my bathtub will continue to be used as a closet.

No Bad Weather?

No Bad Weather?

There’s also a saying (song) that goes: Summertime, and the living is easy…

I don’t agree with the Nordic idea about no weather being bad, but I do know wearing the right clothes makes dealing with the bad weather easier. After three rainy Fridays in a row, followed by a rainy Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and possibly Thursday this week, I am reminded again of how little I can control.
