Simple Woman's Daybook~December 15, 2008

I find this type of blog keeps me focused and on track...and gives a frame of reference into my life as I can look back over the past weeks and compare. Interesting...hhmmmm! To read other blogs of this kind, click on the picture, or go to www.thesimplewomansdaybook.blogspot.com/

FOR TODAY December 15, 2008

Outside my window...it is cool and a bright blue sky is coming to light as the sun rises over the mountains, the last few leaves drift lazily to the ground and winter is here at last

I am thinking...that Christmas is the BEST time of year

I am thankful for...new carpet, old friends and the anticipation that my parents will be here in 6 days...woohoo!!

From the learning rooms...we are cramming before the coming break. Many projects and papers to do...better get going on that one!

From the kitchen...haystacks today...more baking all week and easy meals to save energy for more important things

I am wearing...my PJs still...shh don't tell!!

I am creating...A master list of addresses so I can mail my Christmas letter...better hurry on that, too!

I am going...nowhere except to work on M and W..hurray for a week at home!

I am reading...The Bible and my Christmas letter and many blogs of this type

I am hoping...to wake up one day and find that 45 pounds are gone! LOL!

I am hearing...Titus cooing and playing with a rattle, James, Derek and Casey playing with cars in the LR, the dryer and Dave and pat complaining about me saying it's a no TV week...they HATE those...at least for the first day, then they enjoy the extra games they can play, outside time, and book reading.

Around the house...much to do... secrets to finish off, a bit of wrapping left to do and letters to mail out, plus all the usual things

One of my favorite things...Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things ; )

A few plans for the rest of the week: Just the last of the Christmas prep..reading the advent book with the boys each night, and getting the house in order so we are ready for guests!!

Here is picture thought I am sharing... Things that makes you say, "Aaawwwwwww!" A nap with Daddy...isn't that the best??
