FOR TODAY … December 22, 2008
Outside my window…the sun is shining brightly, highlighting the frost that covers everything. We had a very cold night last night, about 20 degrees! I am hoping that we will get enough freezes this winter to eliminate some mosquito larvae!
I am thinking…about how I love getting mail, comments, and email!!
I am thankful for…a husband who loves me enough to take care of me when I’m sick, to help me when I’m overwhelmed, to lead me when I’m stubborn and to forgive me when I come to my senses. ♥
From the learning rooms…the delightful sound of silence! We begin our two week Christmas break today, though I still have some grading to do.
From the kitchen…biscuits, blueberry muffins, and oatmeal crispies later! 🙂
I am wearing…a khaki skirt, a gray snowman sweatshirt and loafers.
I am creating…a clean house today! I finished up the homemade Christmas ornaments and gave them away at church last night. I think everyone liked them, but I didn’t think about making something for those who do not have a Christmas tree! I’ll have to do better next year.
I am going…to be celebrating the birth of our Lord this week!
I am reading…Mountain Born by Elizabeth Yates and Revelation from my King James Bible.
I am hoping…to purchase very soon the something that I’ve been saving up for! 🙂
I am hearing…the sound of “I Love Lucy” from the TV, the dishwasher running, and my central heat blowing. (Thank you, Lord, for heat today!!)
Around the house…clutter from the projects we’ve been working on.
One of my favorite things…Mary Engelbreit’s artwork, especially her calendars!
A few plans for the rest of the week: Visiting some shut-ins tonight with Christmas baskets, Christmas shopping/wrapping tomorrow; Wednesday will be baking day for Christmas. I’m looking forward to celebrating Christ’s birth on Thursday! I’m so thankful that He was born to die for my sins.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
My most precious treasures: Leslie, Mitchell, Lauren, Laci and last, but definitely not least…a husband who is a wonderful Daddy! ♥
I wish you all a wonderful week as you prepare your hearts to celebrate Christ’s birth!
