There ya go! You're going to be so productive this week. I find a list just makes everything flow better. I know where I need to be and what I need to be doing, and at the end of the week, I can see exactly how much I accomplished. I hope you do as well with it as I found I have.

(And the Benedict Society is a GREAT YA book! I read it last summer with my daughter's book group.)

I should take a page from your and Dorothy's book. I always plan our meals but seldom plan accomplishments. I guess that's one of the joys of being retired. There's always NEXT week... But I do plan activities, golf on Tuesday, lunch with girlfriends on Wednesday, etc.

Jules, this is it -- my menu planner for next week. Just good sense/good taste all the way.

I'm a list maker, so planning just comes naturally. Sometimes, however, the IDEAS don't come.

Thanks for the great ideas.

Also, I'm so very impressed that your children are learning Latin. I took it for four years -- one of the single best foundational blocks I have enjoyed most of my life!

Blessings for your new school year -- for you and the children!
