Outside my window... the sun is just starting to shine on my newly finished deck. The day looks like it will be a wonderful day to get out and enjoy the fall weather :-) I am thinking... I need to make a to do list for today and get started before the day gets away from me! I am thankful for... Thanksgiving and this season that helps me to slow down and be thankful for the big and small things. From the learning rooms... we are learning about the letter I and practicing our counting. We will also be doing some fun songs and a craft today :-) From the kitchen... I am flying solo tonight since Tim is running sound at church. So I might switch up what I am making for something quick and Sammy friendly! I think we will also make some ice cream today.. since we are learning about the letter I. I am wearing... black stretch pants, a tank top, and my redskins snuggie.. don’t laugh.. I am creating... some Christmas presents that I can’t share about…. but they are going to be very neat :-) I am going... nowhere!! Yay! Today is a day for staying at home. We ran around yesterday and we will tomorrow so today we will hang out at home. (Well until Awana which is just down the street). I am reading...Freedom on my Nook. It is pretty good I just haven’t put much time into my reading lately! I am hoping... to get a list of all the things I hope to get done for Christmas and see what is actually feasible. I am hearing... Sammy playing cars on the train table and the dog snoring lightly behind me. Around the house... I need to get caught up on laundry and do some other chores but for the most part not to bad! One of my favorite things... is pumpkin spice coffee which I will be sipping shortly. A few plans for the rest of the week: finish one of my homemade Christmas presents, drop off our Operation Christmas Child box, and reorganize the master bedroom closet.
