We’re enjoying a date night. The three boys are having a slumber party at Michelle’s with her boys, and Natalie is staying the weekend with Grandmama and Papa. We went out to dinner at a new restaurant in town – wonderful food, good wine – and now he’s playing a game online and I am enjoying some blogging time before I go curl up in the corner of the couch and read the night away.
I finished getting everything ready for Monday, so we’re all set to start year six of our homeschooling adventure. Six years – that just blows me away! I finally feel like I (sort of) know what I’m doing, too.
I’ve been collecting links for so long, with no time to post them, so I’ve got a bunch!
~Amazon has posted their “Best Books of the Year So Far” lists for fiction, children and teens, and non-fiction. Have you read any of them? I haven’t, but I usually get to the newest “it” book a few years late.
~ All of you Austenites, click over here and enter the Jane Austen Book Club contest. Grand prize is a trip to the UK to tour Austen-related sites.
~ For those of you following the election, here are a few videos from my favorite candidate, Ron Paul: on entitlements, on the IRS, on monetary policy, on the second amendment, on healthcare, and on civil liberties. Also, here’s a video of media clips about Dr. Paul that shows that he has strong grass roots support, in spite of the fact that the mainstream media continues to ignore him.
~ If you ever had the pants scared off you in church by all those “Mark of the Beast” movies, like the ones I remember seeing in junior high, you’ll find this video very funny.
~ Lawanda posted this funny video of a Dad’s Lullaby set to Pachelbel’s Canon in D.
~ Melanie Hauser’s “Saying Goodbye, at the Grocery Store” is poignant and wonderful.
~ Christopher Walken is one of Kevin’s favorite actors, and this video of him cooking chicken with pears in his own kitchen is priceless. He is such a strange guy. Great actor, but strange guy.
Well, that’s it for this week. I hope you all have wonderful weekends planned!
