The Simple Woman's Daybook for December 12, 2011

FOR TODAY Monday December 12, 2011 ... Less than 2 weeks before Christmas!

Outside my window... quite chilly this morning, a hard frost, but sunny and bright.

I am thinking... about doing some laundry.

I am thankful... the family progressive dinner went well this weekend.

From the learning rooms... we're enjoying our break. We're getting all of the "activities" done but not much else.

In the kitchen... the cupboards are getting a bit bare, but I think some sort of chicken will be for dinner ...

I am wearing... jammies!

I am creating... those two Christmas presents ... I'd better get finished [eep]

I am going... to stay home today.  Maybe run to return some library books, but other than that home.

I am wondering... how the rest of the week will go.

I am reading... Lit! (I don't know what I think yet) and  Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus (devotionals for Advent, very good and convicting)

I am hoping... to finish a couple more books before the end of the year, but I'm not counting on it. 

I am looking forward to... the children's choir concert on Friday (and a visit from Grammy!)

I am hearing... N-boy humming while waiting to lose to me at Uno.

Around the house... the downstairs is in good shape (company, you know) the upstairs needs some attention.

I am pondering... yesterday's sermon, Pastor said John 14:15 could be rightly said,  "Since you love me, you'll keep my commandments." and tied it to Ezekiel's replacing hearts of stone to hearts of flesh.  Beautiful.

One of my favorite things... our family tradition of a "Progressive Dinner" where we have heavy appetizers at one family's house and desserts at another's.  

A few plans for the rest of the week: The Works, choir, Bible Study, grocering?

Here is picture for thought I am sharing... Croquembouche!

  1. Yum! And, so pretty! Take pics (video?) of the recital!

  2. That sounds like a great sermon on keeping God's commandments!

    Beautiful Christmas tree also.

    Merry Christmas!
