Outside my window...it's still dark, very windy and a bit chilly (37 degrees). The cat looked at me like I was nuts when I opened the door for her this morning. Apparently, it's too cold and windy for her!
I am thinking...about how to keep
I am thankful for...my family, my faith and how God loves me in spite of how wretched I am.
From the learning rooms...we'll be doing some writing assignments, baking cookies and reading lots of books!
From the kitchen...cookies, cookies and more cookies! Oh, and lasagna (Thank you Stouffers!)
and garlic bread for dinner!
I am wearing...pink pajama bottoms, a Smokey Mountains t-shirt (from our vacation this summer!) and fuzzy blue socks! Clearly fashion is not my "thing"!
I am creating...lots of Christmas gifts! I found some very cool ways to use our old Christmas cards. I'll share the finished products...after Christmas, of course!
I am going...to prepare a place for the Traveling Madonna that made her way to our doorstep last night! She will be with us for the whole week! There will be many rosaries offered! I love it when the statue of Our Lady of Fatima comes to our house, it's like having a special guest staying with us!
I am reading...well, I'm still reading Padre Pio~Man of Hope but I am also re-reading Hinds Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard. This is probably my most favorite book in the whole wide world!
I am hoping...to get to the pharmacy today so that I can get a couple of prescriptions refilled.
I am hearing...the hum of the computer fan and the coffee pot working away at my first cup of the day (sorry, Judy!).
Around the house...signs of Christmas everywhere! There is also lots of laundry to be attended to.
One of my favorite things...cold, overcast, windy days when I can snuggle up in my warm home with my kids. Guess what? TODAY is one of those days! Yay!
A few plans for the rest of the week...finishing up our homemade gifts, a Christmas party at church on Thursday, and finishing up school so we can be free until after the first of the year!
A picture thought I'd like to share:
