FOR TODAY . . .
Outside my window. . . Very cold, with only a trace of yesterday's snow left, but plenty of sunshine which is always a welcome sight.
I am thinking. . . about how very fast this Advent season is moving for me and my family this year, whew!
I am thankful for. . . my dh's ability to know when to order take out :)
From the schoolroom. . . lots of read alouds, knitting, drawing, building and creating, listening to Christmas Cd's.
From the kitchen. . . finishing the massive St. Lucia braided bread wreath we enjoyed on Saturday with hot cocoa and lattes.
I am wearing. . . a pair of navy lycra cropped leggings, light pink t-neck and a cabled black v-neck pullover and slippers. My hair is in it's usual clip partially pulled back and no make-up yet today...
I am creating. . . Christmas gifts mostly from the kitchen today, but am intermittently knitting on a little surprise for my mother in a luscious lavendar alpaca.
I am going. . . to drive for ballet this afternoon and hope we can all make it to the Advent penance service as a family tonight.
I am reading. . . Cookbooks and blogs for gift ideas, also have The Enchanted April in my bedside basket, although I didn't get much reading in over the weekend.
I am hoping. . . that I can get everything done that I have planned for today and that we can make it through the day without any explosions from Sean-Paul, the terrible three year old kind...
I am hearing. . . basketballs bouncing in the garage and Matthias doing scales on the piano.
Around the house. . . tyding up after the weekend, laundry, lunch clean-up, general busyness, music.
One of my favorite things. . . the children working on their various gift projects in secret mostly and homemade bread :)
A few plans for the rest of the week. . . lots of Nutcracker this week, in fact we only have Tuesday off, more get-togethers with friends and family...
Here is picture thought I am sharing. . .(this one's for Alice:)
