daybook

FOR TODAY

Outside my window...
the sun has come out, though it is still cold and damp
the dog is looking in the window and whining

I am thinking...
about plans for Christmas

I am thankful...
for the time away last week and
for the time working with OCC

From the learning rooms...
the kids are begging to play our new Rummikub game
and I am thinking I may give in ... 
after all, it does involve using their math skills!

From the kitchen...
we spent so much time eating out over the last week,
I am ready for a home-cooked meal! 
Actually, I am ready for a LOT of home-cooked meals in a row. 
Tonight, I will start with meat loaf, baked sweet potatoes, and probably green beans.

I am wearing...
plaid lounge pants and an old t-shirt

I am creating...
crocheted dish rags for Christmas gifts

I am going...
to Sam's sometime today

I am wondering...
how Mama's doctor's appointment went this morning

I am reading...
Radical by David Platt and
Fierce Beauty by Kim Meeder

I am looking forward to...
being at home for awhile

I am hearing...
the kids talking, D's light sabre humming

Around the house...
getting ready to decorate for Christmas

I am pondering...
some changes I know I need to make

One of my favorite things...
walking into a store and smelling "Christmas"

A few plans for the rest of the week:
mostly school ... maybe a trip to the library ...
 not much else if I can help it

Here is picture I am sharing...
cartons of shoe boxes loaded and ready to go to Atlanta


I'm linking up to the Simple Woman's Daybook if you would like to join in the daybook fun!
