Outside my Window… there is a blanket of snow covering the ground! We woke up to snow for the first time this winter on Saturday morning, and it has been snowing each night since!
This is pretty rare for here, and although it does snow a few times each year, it usually isn’t this early!
I am thinking… about the fact that this is the first time in just over 9 years that I have not been pregnant and/or nursing a baby. I don’t know what to do with myself!
From the school room… The boys are still working on their Advent Lapbooks, which they are loving. We will also spend sometime finishing up all their English, spelling, phonics, etc, so we can take the next 2 weeks off.
I am thankful… for our fireplace/woodstove on these cold mornings.
From the kitchen… I have a pot of oatmeal simmering on the stove, leftover Santa Lucia bread, and a pot of coffee brewing. I think I will make a sauce for Spaghetti or Lasagna for dinner, and sometime this week, I want to bake a cake or cookies for St. Joseph. Oh, and remember that Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are Ember days!
I am creating… a list of Christmas gifts that I still need to purchase or mail. I am *so* behind this year!
I am going… to mail some packages this week, and hopefully finish my shopping.
I am wearing… my jammies still, though I need to change soon since the tutor is coming this morning.
I am hoping… that my sister can come over today and help me put together our Christmas card. I still haven’t done that… The past few years we have sent out the same one (from Costco) as a number of friends, and so we can make a custom one this year. Wish me luck!
I am hearing… little feet running up and down the hall, and many excited voices. My kiddos love the snow!
Around the house… I have so much to do this week to finish preparing for Christmas! I am hoping to be able to clean the house real well, and catch up on that never ending pile of laundry!
One of my favorite things… our new flannel sheets!! We finally bought a set, when Costco had a great deal on them, and they really make all the difference in the world on these cold winter nights!
The tutor will be coming today, tomorrow, and Wednesday, and then that will be it until next year!
- Hubby’s last day of work for the year is Thursday, and then he will have the next 2 weeks off!
- Possibly take the kids roller skating with our home school group. We have ice skated many, many times, but I don’t remember having ever taken my kids roller skating!
- Friday my tutor will be baysitting so I can run errands, and do a bit of shopping! I am SO excited!!
- I am also going to try not to take on too much… I don’t say no enough, and my list of people that I need to say no to, is the same as Jennifer’s! I don’t know why I am always trying to accomplish more than is humanly possible…. Sheesh!!
