Outside my window: plums, ripening.
What I’m hearing: a gold finch is singing his heart out from the dead branch of our ash tree.

In my prayers: Mandy. The survivors of the typhoon in the Philippines. The people of Aleppo and Homs. My upcoming trip.
Grateful: for our garden. For Josephine, born last week in Chicago. And Baby Juliette, born last week in Paris. A run here, last week:
In the kitchen: green and yellow beans.
Reading: Charlotte Mason’s original homeschooling series. Metaxas’ biography of Bonhoeffer (wow!) and a Geogette Heyer, Frederica.

Thanks, Annie! 🙂 I was just saying to Mark the other day that I need something to knit while he’s reading aloud in the evenings- and I mentioned dishcloths!
