Daybook ~ December 14th

Outside my window ...
it is rainy and unseasonably warm.

I am wearing ...
blue jeans and a green t-shirt.

I am hearing ...
Christmas music (Mary Did You Know - one of my favorite newer Christmas songs) and JW giving me a play-by-play of what is happening on the Tom and Jerry movie they are watching.

I am going ...
to take all the kids for haircuts ~ finally!  And, hopefully to Hobby Lobby if the weather cooperates.

I am noticing that ...
blogging has changed the way I think about the every day happenings in my life.

I am thinking ...
about what to fix for lunch and the fact that I need to go to the grocery store.

I am hoping ...
to get some family plans for Christmas finalized soon and to figure out what I need to cook for the different gatherings.

I am reading ...
One Wintry Night by Ruth Bell Graham with the kids.

I am creating ...
some surprises for Christmas.

I am remembering ...
the wonderful worship and fellowship last night as our choir sang the Christmas musical and we shared about our trip to Atlanta to work in the OCC processing center.

I am thankful for ...
the church family where God has placed our family.  I am more aware than ever what a gift the church is to Christians.

On my mind ...
a situation I don't quite know how to handle.

Words that I am pondering ... 
O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.  Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.  Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.  Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.  Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth.  Psalm 105:1-5


From the learning rooms ...
a slow week of school with more projects and reading than anything else ... we will make time for some math and language though.
 
From the kitchen ...
a mess to clean up from yesterday and it is looking like leftovers for supper tonight.
 
Around the house ...
I am hoping to organize LB's room this week ... ugh!  Not an extremely fun task, but one that is in dire need of being done.
 
A few plans for the rest of the week ...
we have blessedly few plans this week.  I do hope to go shopping with Mama sometime this week and Mama and Daddy may keep the kids and let Ronnie and I do some shopping as well.
 
One of my favorite things ...
Christmas music.
 
A picture to share with you ...
it is hard to believe that this was just over a week ago when it is 70 degrees today.

Hummmmm, great minds think alike. Amy & I tackled her room today and its not near done. Right now, its a disaster, she will have to shove stuff off the bed to go to sleep. I know it will be better when its finished but right now, it unbelievable!
