It's Wednesday

Today was one of those busy days. I forced myself to get up early to get a head start on the cleaning, vacuuming, etc. before our playdate guests arrived. Rachel and Andrew headed downtown to the Morris-Butler House for a homeschool session on the history of Indianapolis. They had a great time and I think we'll go back in the summer for a session on cooking (in the Victorian era?). I was dissappointed to hear only four other children were in attendance. Such a great program -- I think I better put the word out.

Mid-afternoon I headed out to do errands, one of which was to stop by the Knit Shop and pick up a few things. Pictured above is their valentine window. I resisted the urge to buy any more yarn. I must get started on something for the baby. I have a few ideas and I'm trying to discipline myself to get a few long-going projects out of the way before I start.

After the knit shop came the post office, copy store, gas station, Marsh and then Wal-mart. Finally it was time to head home and fortunately I had stew in the crockpot. Then it was time to cut 5 heads of hair and now I need to get off the computer and go get my drawing class ready for homeschool group tomorrow!

It's been a very full day. I hope there is time too fit a few minutes in for reading. I'm finding it harder and harder to read as much as I used to. But, I do give thanks that I have the health to be "doing". And maybe I can sit and relax for a bit tomorrow afternoon when the kids are worn out from homeschool group. :)

Heather, I saw that there is a link to live coverage. I don't know if it will include the opening ceremonies. .which will be quite late for you. . maybe someone will tape it for you. . but here is the link.

I know someone who went to a rehearsal and she said it was very beautiful .. so we'll see. I'm a bit curious and often "Canadian" artistry leaves me baffled.
