Monday’s Music

This week, Wood Sprite and I are finishing up a Coursera class we’ve been doing together. She’s done so well that I think I will enroll her on her own next week. Suddenly she’s very much into technology, Minecraft, games… It’s wonderful and overwhelming at once!

We also joined Pottermore together this week. Sprite was sorted into Hufflepuff, Indy was a Slytherin and I was a Ravenclaw. All were surprising results to me! Today we read more from the book, did yardwork and housework, made a dog crate and grilled food at home. It was a very lovely Sunday, especially since Indy was supposed to work initially!

This week we have a museum tour, homeschool bowling, a family game night, a field trip to a news studio, a painting date with Scouts, classes in Civil Rights, Science and book club (this week’s subject is Queen Liliuokalani), and a night of blown glass! Indy is even taking a vacation day for that. It’s going to be a packed, amazing week, and we’re going to squeeze in a couple of hikes, too. We are also reading A Wrinkle in Time this week for next week’s book club.

Wood Sprite was watching Ella Enchanted last night and it totally ingrained “Joy to the World” in my brain. So I thought I’d share. Have a great week!

Mashups normally aren’t my thing, but I really loved the version of Nelly’s “Just a Dream” in the film Pitch Perfect. I’m looking forward to the sequel! How about you?

I know in the last movie they made it a big deal about how they only used female covers and Becca changed all of that, but I think using only female artists is a great thing to do since so many groups only use male performers already. How about some Heart songs, Barden Bellas?

Until then, here’s the song! What are you up to this week, readers? I’m working on pieces about St. Patrick’s Day and my ghost novel. Wood Sprite and I are heading to the Compassion Experience, having playdates, reading A Wrinkle in Time for book club, going bowling, attending 4-H and having a sleepover during the weekend, so time management is definitely key this week. Last week was full of rotten luck (furnace issues, a broken car handle, a broken glass, a dog-chewed couch cushion…) so here’s to a much luckier week. Maybe we’ll find a four-leaf clover somewhere. 😉 Have a good one!
