We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. ~Isaiah 64:8

Daybook: March 12th

outside my window . . . the sky is so clear and blue.  I'm ready for that early spring "green fuzziness".  We may make it to the lower 70s today.

listening to . . . early morning NPR.  The heat finally kicking on and taking the chill off the house.

wearing . . . pjs, still, for the moment.  Off for my shower in a moment.  Warm today, so maybe a skirt.

so grateful for . . . visit with my mom and step-dad, a fun day with the kids on Erik's birthday, and a lovely dinner out for just the two of us on Friday.

reading . . .  starting Aristophanes today: "Clouds", "Frogs", "Peace" and "Birds".  Still working through Sproul's "Consequences of Ideas".  Considering starting "Olive Kittridge" - any thoughts on that book?

creating . . . a plan for St. Patrick's Day.  More on that later this week...

around the house . . . Erik made some headway on the garage clean out yesterday.  I'd really like to get it cleaned out enough that we could pull the van in during the hottest and coldest months of the year.  This project is on a "fits and starts" schedule, sadly, but we are getting there!

from the kitchen . . . Strawberry-Apple Pie!  Made that last night for hubby's birthday (a day late!).  He requested it, but I was skeptical.  He was right: delicious!

real education in our home . . . Faramir spent the entire afternoon yesterday working on a dirt track for his new Radio-Controlled car complete with ramps and other obstructions.  This is new fascination.

one of my favorite things . . . Hubby's new mug!  Artemisia and I went to a pottery-painting studio recently and made birthday gifts.  My gift to him was a very large mug with a Swedish flag.  I think he liked it.  (Artemisia painted a very pretty cross for him.)

the week ahead . . . phone interview today for a tutoring spot with CC next year, Bible study tonight, Wednesday night church meetings, children's theatre on Thursday, maybe a sleepover for Artemisia on Friday, and our supper club on Saturday.
