I sat here for a minute.. trying to decide what to title this entry. It still doesn't have a name.
I might just leave it like that...

The house if finally quiet for the first time since everyone started waking up this morning.
Mondays are a busy day around here.. I guess it's like that in every home. I read posts about other peoples Mondays, and they sound alot like mine. On Mondays it seems that the chaos, the noise and the stress is multiplied times ten.

Today Abigail has ballet in a town about an 1 and fifteen minutes from home.
At 5 o'clock her and Mama, were running around trying to get out the door on time.
Mama was giving me instructions like::

"The bread is taken care of, the spaghetti sauce is almost finished, and the noodles can be cooked a few minutes before you eat"...


"Make sure that Lily Kate stays with you the whole time, don't take your eyes off of her.
Put this much water in the bathtub when you bathe her. {holds up fingers to show how much.}" ;)

It's a bit overwhelming to be told everything to do, and hope that you don't forget anything!!
I actually kind of enjoy staying with everyone. Tonight we read "Molly: An American Girl", and the boys actually really enjoyed it!~

 Sunday was sunny and cool. We went hiking for a while before it got dark. I don't necessarily l.o.v.e hiking. It's just not really my thing. I don't get all into it, and wear my braided hemp bracelet, and bandanna on my head! ;)

{no offence if you do wear hemp bracelets and bandannas on your head. "Be who you are, say what you feel. Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind". ~Dr. Seuss. I got to give it to Dr. Seuss for that quote. Love the way he put it. }

 This picture reminds me of the verse, ..."You have made known to me the path of life, in your presence is fullness of JOY, at your right hand are pleasures forever more."
 The woods are a very peaceful place. I loved the river flowing along side them. It really made it even more peaceful.

I tried uploading more of the pictures that I took, but it just wouldn't work. I will try again tomorrow...

may you have a wonderful, and {p.e.a.c.e.f.u.l} Tuesday.

"Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it."

{I don't know how many times I have used that quote on here, but I never get sick of it!}
