Outside my Window… I see leaves falling, and it is very chilly. There is a big new pile of firewood that hubby gathered and split over the weekend.
From the school room… we are plugging away at our school work. The goal for this week is to get caught up with Math. So much focus has been going into all of our Language Arts this year that Math has been falling between the cracks. I do like Right Start, but getting into a routine, as well as getting use to it, has been challenging. (Katie… I will email you soon!)
I am thankful… for EWTN’s live video! It was so nice to watch the Beatification Mass of Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin yesterday. The basilica in Lisieux, dedicated to their daughter St. Therese, is sure beautiful, isn’t it?!
From the kitchen… another hot Oregon Chai Latte made with soy milk. It is what I’ve replaced my morning coffee with and it is so yummy!
On the menu for tonight is Crock Bot Beef Sandwiches, Steamed Carrots, Roasted Red Potatoes, and Apple Crisp. It almost makes me feel like eating! 😉
I am creating… some felt food (for my daughters) for Christmas! I figured I had better get started now, if I ever hope to finish it on time.
I am going… to try really hard to answer all the emails that are sitting in my inbox awaiting replies. I am so very sorry, but my computer time has been very limited lately! Sleep has suddenly become more important… All I want to do is sleep! (I do so appreciate getting them though, even if it is taking me forever to respond!) 🙂
I am wearing… loose clothing. Anything tight around my tummy makes me throw up. :S
I am reading… through lots of Catholic cookbooks as I gather ideas for our All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day, and All Souls day menus.
I am hoping… for LOTS and LOTS of participation in Catholic Cuisines next From Thy Bounty Fair: Hallowed Days Won’t you please join us?!?!
I am hearing… Snuggles babbling to himself as he looks through a book. He is doing better today, though it was a very hard weekend for him. I have never been able to nurse AND be pregnant at the same time without contracting. (Although I HAVE been either nursing or pregnant for the past 9 years, straight!!) So, it was time to wean him. It was hard for both of us, but it’s done. sniff… sniff…
Around the house… I actually got a *TON* done this weekend. It is pretty motivating when your hubby comments that your home is starting to look like a dump. (In my defense, I have been sick, and trying to keep up with the schooling…) So, I’ve stayed off the computer and the phone and attacked the kids rooms and hall closets on Saturday. They look SO MUCH BETTER!!!! We finally hung pictures on the walls that have been sitting on the dressers F.O.R.E.V.E.R.!!! We sorted through many many toys and did ANOTHER major decluttering. Seriously, WHERE does all this STUFF come from?!?
One of my favorite things… clean cozy bedrooms and flannel sheets!
(While we were at Costco on Friday, I picked up some darling soft pink flannel sheets for the girls. I must say, they really brighten up their room and make the hand-me-down comforters from my sisters look so much better! Plus, they were only $12.99 per set!!! Not bad!!)
- Continue to pray the rosary as a family each night.
- Captain’s Auditory Processing Tutor was here this morning, and is coming again tomorrow.
- I hope to make it to Mass and Benediction on Friday, but it will depend on how I am feeling. Hubby will be working and so I will be on my own.
- Our annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing:
