For Today November 9, 2009.....
Outside my Window....absolutely beautiful fall weather. The breeze coming in the window is so refreshing and enjoyable.
I am Thinking....Thanksgiving is on my mind.
I am Thankful for.....family. That my husband has parents that love him very much and have never walked away from him.
I am wearing...walking clothes getting ready to do my morning walk.
I am remembering....how much it means to my husband to have an all from scratch homemade Thanksgiving dinner. I love cooking it for him...a memory for my children.
I am going...drop books off at library, stop at a store and go to orchestra with my 4 children. They are all doing so good with their instruments. The first recital is Dec 7, it is around the corner.
I am reading...patterns..working on Christmas presents does not leave me much time between schooling 4 children and tending to our home.
I am hoping...to finish hand stitching a quilt I pieced last year soon. I have 2 boys asking for a quilt from mom for Christmas. Trying to figure out how to pull this one off. One doesn't care about the fabric so I could do his easily. The other son wants camouflage which means buying fabric and right now that is not in any budget around here.
On my mind....the families that are suffering from a lost loved one's right now. Two senseless shootings that took innocent life's this week.
From the learning rooms...daily math, reading always and for the oldest memorizing a poem. The other boys grammar and the youngest is learning long vowel sounds. This week the youngest who is 6 just was moved into Saxon 2 math. She is so excited!
Noticing that....the sun is setting earlier. Which means I need to get out sooner for my trampoline work.
Pondering these words....Every time I come to this section. I become stumped, makes me wonder if I ever have any deep thoughts. I am so in the here and now at this moment that there is not much intellectual thinking going on at this time.
From the Kitchen....enchiladas and nachos, tonight. Chili tomorrow, homemade pizza on Wednesday. not sure of Thursday and Friday just yet.
Around the house....Work continues at a slow pace with the remodeling. The drive is not there with the possibility we could lose the house. Prayers are need.....
One of my favorite things....joy of my family having a good time.
From my picture Journal...finished piecing the quilt top. Picture doesn't truly show it. After I sandwich I will try to get a better picture.
