Outside my window...a rather
gloomy cozy day (cup half full!).. a great day for tea, blankets and lots of read alouds.
I am hearing...the "lion" winds of March, whipping against the kettle
I am thankful... for these early morning moments for quiet thinking, writing, praying before my little awakes
Around the house...lots of folding to be done (always), some new open-ended, natural and creative toys and spaces for Levi in the waldorf tradition (more on this later)
In the kitchen...not a lot - grocery shopping is on the docket today.
I am wearing...pjs and a pile of blankets.
I am creating... another Manchester-by-the-Sea painting for my Nana (aka my #1 customer). I'm honored that she is outfitting all of her sisters, cousins and friends in my pendants.
I am going...to make the most of no-work-wednesday; a slow morning, a few errands, story and craft time at the PEM, a long afternoon nap, our creative arts group tonight and perhaps a little painting, if I'm lucky.

I am reading...still James, still For the Beauty of the Church, still Teach Like a Champion, lots of nursery rhymes and "Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site" over and over and over again.

I am looking forward to...ArtSpeak: RESTORE!,
I am pondering... these beautiful Lenten art pieces/devotionals (http://civa.org/civablog/civas-seeing-the-savior-lenten-devotional/)
A few plans for the rest of the week...
- an attempt to capture another "day in our lives" tomorrow (note to self: recharge camera battery)
- crocheting a rug/play mat out of fabric scraps
- a special secret Easter project for my sisters
- apply to a couple of Art Festivals for the summer
- a Moroccan Shabbat Dinner at church
- grade high school paintings
- host an old friend for the weekend
Have a lovely (and cozy) day, friends!
