Each Monday I plan to join with Peggy from the The Simple Woman and many others who are celebrating the joy of simplicity. Here's a peek into my life right now...
FOR TODAY (December 8, 2008)...
Outside my window... It's dark outside now. A *very* busy day has zipped by already!
I am thinking... of laundry to do, Christmas plans
I am thankful for...
peace in our country and the freedom to worship freely. Such a high price so many have paid to secure this privilege for us.
From the learning rooms… plugging away at schoolwork for just this week and next, then it will be Christmas break! Hooray!
From the kitchen... lots of yummy things to cook~ gingerbread cookies, soups and lots of ground beef (just found out that I could buy it by the case from Sams Club). We will be cooking up taco meat and other batch cooking meals that use ground beef too.
I am wearing... ok.... I hate to admit it, but once again I am wearing my floral overalls! I was recently blessed to purchase some lovely light yellow floral (of course!) fabric on sale at Jo Ann's. I am hoping to have opportunity to sew it up later this week. Here's the pattern I plan to use.
I am creating... a Christmas journal.... see Ali's blog for some great free info. In addition to the jumper mentioned above, I am sewing some new skirts for Abbie and I, plus I am going to start on the "smittens" that I mentioned on my blog here.
I am going... to go battle the overflowing laundry pile in the basement now!
I am reading... Hebrews. And gradually studying it inductively too. BTW... here's one of my favorite links for inductive Bible study. If you are interested in studying God's Word, you won't believe the wealth of information found here!
I am hoping... to get caught up on laundry! LOL!
I am hearing... the boys playing outside with their new LED flashlights~ it's so warm out right now! 58 degrees!
Around the house... Christmas lights (white are my favorite!) and greenery are up~ so pretty!
One of my favorite things... creating something... doesn't matter if it is sewing for my family, quilting, scrapbooking, cardmaking, weaving on my triangle loom, canning fruits and veggies, or even painting a room. I find such great satisfaction in the creative process.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Cooking and sewing, as mentioned above. Plus trying to compile our "year in review" album. That is a daunting undertaking for me~ the photos are organized, but picking and choosing which ones to include is the challenge! Then there is the choice of album and format... ideas anyone?
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
