Around the House

In my fridge:
Thawing some ground beef for tonight's supper.  It's going to be a made-up concoction of some sort, involving tomatoes, bell peppers, corn tortillas, and maybe some enchilada sauce.  I'm thinking casserole.  Wish me luck! :)

On my nightstand:
Nothing!  Today was my weekly decluttering / dusting day.
But I do have a couple of books on my headboard:
Homeschooling with TLC in the Elementary Grades
The Write Start: A Guide to Nurturing Writing at Every Stage, from Scribbling to Forming Letters and Writing Stories

And Greg's current read:
The Silver Chair (The Chronicles of Narnia Book 6)

In the school room:
Our first day of the 2012-2013 school year!  A much anticipated and very successful day of division, phonics, cursive, Old Testament, and ancient Greeks (the beginnings of our study of the Summer Olympics).

In the library basket:

For Dale:
The Horse and His Boy (The Chronicles of Narnia, Volume 3)
 Children's Stories from Dickens (Illustrated Stories for Children)
...and more

For Alan (and Dale):

For Tyler:

Once We Went on a Picnic

..... and other picnic themed books.

On the menu:
After tonight's made-up Mexican inspired ground beef creation, I'm all out of ideas.  It is time, yet again, for a grocery run.  I wonder if we ought to include a Greek salad to go with our study of the Greeks?  Hmm... I'm always game for something new on the menu!  

What are you eating and reading this week?

Eating? Well, after reading Wheat Belly I'm trying to stay away from products containing wheat. I thought it would be harder than it is. This is my third week and I feel great. Last night we had fried clams and I ended up with a headache and felt sick to my stomach. No more! Plus, the little bit of arthritis in my hand is so much better. And my blood pressure is down in the normal range after being borderline.

Reading? I just finished Playimg Dead by Julia Heaberlin and it was so good. It's set in Texas and I loved all the colloquialisms.

Have a good school year! I still miss teaching sometimes!

I ordered some curriculum from CBD today through your search box. Hope you see some change for your Rainy Day fund because of it. ;)
