My Yard and Nightstand

It is 8:07 and there is a variety of humming,cutting, and blowing noises going on outside the office window. I love it! This means that my yard will be looking good soon--as soon as the fertilizer kicks in and the sun shines to make the grass green. There is nothing like a manicured lawn to make me ready for summer. Growing up our yard was always meticulous. If Dad didn't have time to do it (my Dad's days start anywhere from 2:30am-4am) we had somebody do it. My husband doesn't have the time or desire to do it, we just like the end result--it's our one vice. We could take 6 months to pay for a good lawnmower, or we could pay someone to do it for 6 months--Justin chose the latter.

On a completely different note, my friend emailed me yesterday wanting to know if I was reading any good books, she was in the mood for a good book. Unfortunately, I couldn't give her anything stimulating. My bedtime reading has been focused on my debate to homeschool my girls next year, so my nightstand consists of "What Every Kindergartner Should Know" (a whole language approach), and "Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons". Stimulating, huh?!? So, for the 5 of you (whom I know of )who read this, what is on your nightstand? Leave a comment of your good reads! I'd love to get a great read to take me away for a little bit each day!

Okay I don't read to bed, but if you must know what is sitting on omy night stand here goes...
"Devotions for ministry wifes", very dusty as I've only opened it once, it looks good, and I think John Piper's wife Noel put it together.

You'll have to review the books you are reading... I have a future kindergartener here!

I understand about reading up on curriculum. That is basically what I am doing for next year with J#1, just to get a good idea what is going to be taught. The only other thing that I have on my nightstand right now is Breaking Free by Beth Moore. I haven't had a chance to get much done here lately.

I'm a K-1 teacher... with my last Kinder son finishing up his school year...

What's on my night-stand... No books right now- but when there are-

it's usually something I can skip several pages without missing anything because if I want to remember what I read- it has to be read pool-side.

Good luck with the home-schooling decision, it's a tough call to make.
