The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... motorcycles are going back and forth to pick up kids from the school down the street. When Asher wakes up from his nap he will hear them and ask, "What's that noise? Go see?"

I am thinking... I already need another shower.

I am thankful for... friends and co-workers (mostly these are the same people). We went to the beach this weekend and our friends pretty much held Baby Jack the whole time we were there. They would take him to their room to nap so I could go get a pedicure or just lay by the pool and read.

From the kitchen... salad is ready for dinner tonight, I just need to fry some chicken (Pioneer Woman's Homemade Chicken Strips) and make some potatoes.

I am wearing... sweaty clothes. Hot season is returning and we are re-adjusting to sweating all day long.

I am creating... memories, or at least we tried to when we went to the beach this weekend.

I am going... to visit Asher's new preschool on Wednesday. I'm sort of nervous and excited about getting him registered and seeing what a Thai preschool is like.

I am reading... my friend's blog. I love getting to see pictures of people I don't get to see in person very often.

I am hoping... that Asher will sleep better when we go to Chiang Mai next week than he did when we went to the beach this weekend. Sleepy Asher = crazy, screaming, crying

I am hearing... Asher clapping for himself and giggling, I guess nap time is just about over. And there's Jack grunting. Yep, nap time is definitely over.

Around the house... all is quiet now. I started writing this during nap time this afternoon, now it's 9:15 pm. Both boys are in bed, Roger is going to the store to grab a few things for tomorrow and I just got home from my Monday night coffee date with a good friend.

One of my favorite things... Fringe. We just started watching a few weeks ago and we are pretty hooked.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Birthday party tomorrow, Bible study and visiting Asher's school on Wednesday and a going away party for a good friend on Friday. And, oh yeah, language study almost every afternoon.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing... I picked Asher up after Bible study a few weeks ago and found him covered in Band-Aids. None of the other kids had them on and his teacher said something about helping our friends. Asher also said his friends helped him and he gave me a little craft he made about Jesus helping people. I still don't get it.

Love this! Today when I asked Isaac what he did at preschool he said, "My assignments." Then I asked if he had fun and he said, "Yeah. I can't touch the ducklies." Me, "Oh? Really?" Isaac, "Yeah. We just fly in the sky and can't get in the water. Noooo. We not boats." So be prepared to maybe not know exactly what goes on at preschool...just hopefully he'll come out smiling!
The bandaids are adorable.. glad he didn't need them!
