Outside my window...

The dead brown petals on my magnolia tree - I know they are going to make a big mess when they finally drop off.

I am thinking...
About my kid coming back from Manipuelation in Idylewood, CA hopefully tonight.

This was a gathering of "object manipulators."  By this definition of object, "a material thing that can be seen and touched, "  I have been an object manipulator for my entire life!  In fact, as I write this post, I am manipulating the object known as "keyboard."  Earlier this evening I was manipulating an object known as a stove, a food processor, and various kitchen utensils!

I am thankful...
That they had a good time, and still keeping fingers crossed that they get all the way home safely.

In the kitchen...
I am in carbohydrate hell.  My runners have to eat high carb especially before races.  Because Noah has had races the past two school days, I have been making our big daily meal at lunch time. Tonight I sliced potatoes and cooked them with some ham, cheese, peas, and cream of mushroom soup (gluten free) and made a nice casserole.  I'll be glad to get back to our usual meat and a veggie routine tomorrow.

I am wearing...
A skort!  and a t shirt.  It's nice weather for it finally.

I am reading...

I am pondering...
the civil war now that we are closing our study of it.  I highly recommend Ken Burns: The Civil War (Commemorative Edition)

I am going...

and I even had to write my own flute part last week - it took two days!

From the Learning Rooms...

In the homestretch now!  Tomorrow is the last day of co-op for chemistry and World History will be over first week of May - (Although the AP test is the middle of May!)

A quote to share...
Life is often compared to a marathon, but I think it is more like being a sprinter; long stretches of hard work punctuated by brief moments in which we are given the opportunity to perform at our best. 
Michael Johnson
