A Rainy Monday


Since our Sundays are very busy, sometimes I use Monday as a day to take things a bit easier and catch my breath. We still keep to our regular school routine, but we may start an hour or two later than usual. Such was the case today. We didn't start our lessons until after 10:00, but by then I had done two loads of laundry and tidied up the house. I can concentrate on school much better if my kitchen is clean and my brain is uncluttered.

We experienced another rainy day today, but the weatherman says that cooler temperatures are on the way. I noticed that the leaves on our trees are starting to turn. Although the leaves won't be quite as colorful due the drought this year, I still get all excited when the pretty orange and red colors pop up suddenly. It's such a delightful change after growing up around citrus trees and pines.

I'm not sure how much blogging I'll be doing this week as we're making preparations at our church to host a preacher's fellowship and a revival meeting next week, but I'll do my best to get some foliage pictures posted in the next few days.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Rain and cold for us today and it felt wonderful.
I so well remember those days when school started late, but it never seemed to matter. We got all our work done. We homeschooled 17 years and loved every minute of it

I try to have "restful" mondays too to just catch up on things too.

I would love to see the different leaf colors when you get a chance to post them. :)

We usually start later on Mondays too, Sunday is just such a long day on everyone. We always get it all done, with homeschooling we can get away with it. I enjoy reading your blog.

God Bless
