Outside my window.... it's cooooold. We took the dog for a walk and met our friends this morning and it was soooo cccccold. Winter coats and hats and gloves.
I am thinking... about what we want to eat this week.
I am thankful... there are several meals this week I don't have to worry about. My parents and Jason's parents are wonderful about opening their homes and feeding us for these holidays.
I am wearing... slightly smaller sized jeans (woohoo) than normal and a black sweater and a red blanket. Did I mention that it's cold here?
I am creating... a bullet journal. Of course, I started it on Tuesday and am already several days behind. I can pick it up again today, though, right.
I am going... for haircuts, oil change, and groceries this afternoon. Gotta get that done early in the week ...
I am wondering... how much of the children's bedroom floors can be seen. They're supposed to be cleaning their rooms today and tomorrow.
I am reading... Lynn Collum's Regency Romances on Kindle Unlimited.
I am hoping... to get the kitchen and family room cleaned a lot this week so we can get a Christmas tree on Friday.
I am learning... to Work the Plan. Over our Yuletide Session, I plan to spend some time reading and watching through the whole course. I like to get a big overview before doing the individual pieces.
In my kitchen... I haven't cooked since Friday. Yay!
In my garden... I should be cleaning out dead stuff. It's frozen now.
In the homeschool... We're on break into January! I wrote about how we align our academic year with the calendar year last week.
A favorite quote for today...
A peek into one of my days... a boy and his dog waiting outside organ lessons.
One of my favorite things... our Art with Friends group. I love seeing my friends and the children love seeing their friends mid-week. We make some fun projects, too, like these pumpkins and trees:
From the board room... One way we organize our group is by a shared Pinterest board of projects or inspiration we're considering. We usually use a curriculum, but around holidays we do themed projects like those above and sometimes we enjoy a seasonal project instead.
Post Script... Kortney at One Deep Drawer is collecting Advent ideas. She also has an Advent eBook available for subscribers that is sure to be a lovely resource.
