|Lynn, my dil, made this for me! Isn't it pretty????|
For the most part, the house is kept up to date. Sometimes it gets behind a little - but gets caught up.
Will be back in remodel mode this summer however - ugh!
Foods harvested for the year. Currently this is what it looks like out there....
The Garden - Winter 2014Currently working on seed/inventory - making lists and checking them twice - or even a half a dozen times! Will be starting onions this week and greenhouse seeds by the end of the month, first of next month - so need to make sure I've got all my supplies!
Uhmmm - am behind! WAY behind where I thought I would be last January - but then I took the summer off - and have had all too frequent sit-down strikes this fall! Still - am progressing - slowly - but progressing.
I will be finished with the Algebra 1/2 book this month. SHOULD be done with the Writing Strands level 3 book this week - BUT considering how much I've NOT done - it will probably be next week! Re the Earth course I'm doing - am finished or will be by Monday - with the Beginning of It all - and will move seriously into the Pre-Cambrian unit. Which means I am still seriously behind where I thought I would be last January! Russian is still progressing - slowly - and I'm already reviewing as much as possible. I slowed down the pace a LOT - for the most part to one lesson a week - which means this course will take 2 years!
And then there is Botany! What I thought would be an easy course! OK - I can get up now off the floor - laughter is over! For the moment! Because I'm floating between 2 books - one at high school level with one at college level (senior college level at that!) and correlating what I can with the 2 books - things get a bit strange at times with this course! Still I am progressing - BUT have come to a standstill more times than I really care to count! I need to focus on this one more!
Art I am hoping to add this quarter - but still have to order the book - should be quite good though - hopefully! Same for music! I would really rather have my piano back - but will do voice instead I think - and do need some discs on some techniques - so this is still on the very hopeful list!
Religion - uhmmm - I am definitely behind where I should be - BUT am progressing anyway! I'm using 5-7 books depending on which holiday I'm studying! Once I've rotated through the holidays - then I will be discussing daily living.
Should be interesting to see what this Winter quarter brings (Jan - March)
Some finishes, some near flimsy finishes - and DEFINITELY not where either I THOUGHT I would be nor where I WANTED to be!
