I woke up this morning and immediately started cleaning my bedroom, which is one of the most neglected rooms in the house. I also took that time to fold laundry that the Princesses needed to put away.
After that, I had to turn in some nominations for awards the our local Chamber of Commerce is giving, and had to take Princess Melody to check on her work schedule.
When I got home, Princess Abbey began working on her New Jersey unit. We watched a video about Thomas Edison. Until this unit study, I did not know that he was from New Jersey. Princess Abbey and Princess Melody read an article about Bon Jovi, who is also from New Jersey, and how he has started a restaurant that operates on donations rather than on set prices for his menu. This gave them the idea to start something similar here in town. That will be a BIG project, for sure.
Princess Tarja did a few reading exercises on Time4learning.com, and we read part of a Hans Christian Anderson story. Then, Princess Tarja went with me to the stores to gather things that we need for our art association meeting that will take place tomorrow night. It is my job to organize the making of Christmas ornaments for our little tree that we will have at the library, and to bring the snacks. I plan on making sausage/cheese balls, little tuna sandwiches, and I bought some little Christmas cookies. When I got home, I helped Princess Abbey make chili con carne for supper. While the chili simmered, I read a chapter from Mere Christianity, and we discussed what we read about how if we focus on being friendly and nice to others, that we will discover that we like more people than we thought that we would.
If you haven't read Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis, then you are missing out.
Have a Great Day!
