For today... that LAST few days before Thanksgiving, November 23, 2009
Outside my window...The sun shines furiously while birds sit on telephone wires and clouds float lazily past.

I am thinking...That an early morning workout is a wonderful thing...once you get past the injustice of rising so early...LOL!

I am thankful...The threat of impending unemployment, which reminds me of this point...How we need to be mindful at ALL times that it's GOD that provides the job and the money, not hubby, even though he is a hard worker. (At least, I'm TRYING to be grateful...LOL!)

I am wearing...the aforementioned workout attire

I am remembering...that muscles that haven't worked in 6 days, like to keep it that way, I'm feeling sore already.

I am going...nowhere else today. Ready to be home cleaning, baking and teaching today.

I am reading...Hero Tales, Robinson Crusoe and Thy Brother's Wife

I am hoping...to get a FULL week of school in this week, despite the break for Thanksgiving and Dan being home. Although I do intend to let the boys spend some time with Dan learning how to fix things...life lessons day to the rescue ; )
On my mind...That I should be working instead of blogging, there is MUCH to do today!

Noticing that...This year needs to S~L~O~W down, I'm not ready to head into 2010

From the learning rooms...
Week 4 of My Father's World, and lessons 30-35 for Abeka Arithmetic and Language arts...OH, and some new book basket books (so a trip to the library is in short order)

Pondering these words...Cast your cares on Him, for He cares for you! AND Be anxious for nothing...that part is hard!

From the kitchen...Many tasty things this week, but to start with, baking day today. 3 loaves of wheat, and maybe a loaf of white for french toast. For the rest of the week...

  • Monday~Fish Stix, Fries and Cauliflower

  • Tuesday~Chicken Freid Rice and Chicken patties

  • Wednesday~Steak Fajitas

  • Thursday~Thanksgiving, HURRAY!

  • Friday~Pizza but no game night, Just us this week

  • Saturday~Breakfast for dinner~ Eggs, bacon, sausage, hash brown patties

  • Sunday~Lasagna and Broccoli

Around the house...well, it's a Monday morning, there is a BUNCH to be done...starting with making tea anBoldd bread and ending with a hopefully clean house full of baked goodies by tonight before I go to bed.

One of my favorite things...The satisfaction that comes from knowing I gave my level best to that day...in everything~ being a Godly wife and Mother, teacher/leader, homemaking, a good daughter and sister, friend and companion.

From my picture journal...ahh, is there anything that smells better than fresh bread?? I take quite a bit of pride in my mad bread baking skillz...LOL! It's been an amazing journey this past year. I haven't bought a loaf of bread in almost a year...wheee!

Your bread looks gorgeous! My mom always baked bread when I was growing up, and I loved the smell in the house!

Thanks for the sweet comments! I wish I could get in to the habit of planning out our menu every week! (Bread looks really yummy!!)

No purchasing bread for almost a YEAR!?!?!!! That is great! So, do you bake once a week OR do you find that you have to bake more frequently? I love to bake, but my arms are full (with a bundle of love - at least!) right now, so I don't think that I will embark on this journey yet! Although, maybe one day I will join the home baked bread journey! Your braided loaf looks especially yummy and I can ALMOST smell it clear up here in Oregon!!!
