What I Am Doing On My Summer Vacation

  1. Diagramming sentences
  2. Proofing books
  3. Knitting
  4. Reading
  5. Reading Euclid
  6. Reading the Declaration of Independence
  7. Thinking about the Declaration of Independence, with the aim of gathering 10 coherent ideas about it.
  8. Finding out if I really, truly, want a Celtic Harp
  9. Training my children
  10. Learning Logo in August
  11. Gardening
  12. Going about my usual other activities
  13. Reading Greek

Perchance this is why I'm feeling a bit swamped. However, if I approach this list with a FlyLady mentality x 2 -- "You can do anything for 30 minutes at a pop" I'm sure it will all get done quite nicely.

Despite the fact that I feel as if nothing has gotten done recently. If nothing gets finished, I must not be doing anything, right? (Wrong)

I have been knitting, and have finished one pair of socks (the purple multicolored ones) and am just about finished with the first sock of a second pair (made from the near ball). I'm also around row 30 or so of the Faroese Shawl from A Gathering of Lace It's the one on the cover, but in laceweight yarn on size 4 needles rather than a plate of wool on size 11, so it will be a good chunk smaller.

I finished reading a Thomas Jefferson Education, have read Ravi Zacharias' autobiography, and am starting in on a second read of TJ to do some more digesting of it. After that will come another read of Ravi's book, this time with commonplace book in hand, so I can jot down some of the gems hiding in there.

So much to study and learn, so little time!

Did I mention 'planning for the upcoming school year' on my list? That should be there too, I suppose.
