FOR TODAY - December 8, 2008
Outside my window... I actually have to stand and peek past the big beautiful Christmas tree in front of our window. It looks COLD outside. Not even any birds flittering around the bird feeders. Just the look of cold.
I am thinking... about getting up and going outside and chopping wood in that nice cold weather. Yummy.
I am thankful for... a sweet daughter with a heart for being best friends with the baby. If I have to do anything, she will be there to watch the baby. What a blessing to be able to have someone I can trust to watch the baby doll when I need it.
From the learning rooms... today? Work. We're working on learning to work with a good attitude. Stacking wood, cleaning the schoolroom, work.
From the kitchen... a bowl of whole wheat pasta salad with beans that could feed an army. The children all love it and it's so easy to make 108 gallons of it that they can snack on whenever they want.
I am wearing... a sage knit skirt with one of Clay's white t-shirts and my hair up in a bun. Well, and Birkenstocks of course.
I am creating... an album for a friend. Can't say more in case she were to stumble here and read it :)
I am going... to go outside in a minute and chop wood. One of my favorite activities of all time.
I am reading... seed catalogs. I have 3 major ones that keep screaming that I order from them. I need to plan the garden so I can start pricing out my seeds. They need ordering soon!
I am hoping... that we get everything done that Clay asked me to get done today. Mostly the schoolroom and schoolroom fridge.
I am hearing... Frankie sing "Grandma got runover by a reindeer". The holidays are upon us.
Around the house... a half gallon of sweet tea, a pretty Christmas tree with blinking white lights, a boy who should be asleep on the couch but isn't, laundry that needs folding, and a wood stove that needs checking because it's not putting off enough heat.
One of my favorite things... the pretty cream pillows with red floral design I found for pennies at Goodwill a few weeks ago.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Split up the rest of the huge woodpile outside, finish cleaning schoolroom and get the whole upstairs spotless so that we can make the family closet.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
