Simple Woman's Daybook, December 22

FOR TODAY...Monday, December 22, 2008

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW...a VERY chilly 18* (that's with the windshield factor)...but it's supposed to warm up through the night

I AM THINKING...about how we can make "bedtime" go smoother...we've gotten a little off schedule these last few weeks. I think I'm going to get MOTH back out!

I AM THANKFUL FOR...Brian's job security

FROM THE LEARNING ROOM...Christmas Vacation...Christmas Vacation...Christmas Vacation...Christmas Vacation...This old house, sure is looking good...Got ourselves the finest snowman in the neighborhood...Ain't it fun, always on the run...That's how its done on Christmas Vacation

FROM THE KITCHEN...I made lasagna was quite Yummy, even without LaRosa's special sauce!

I AM WEARING...yellow and blue, star jammy pants and Brian's Johnny Bench Red's Tee

I AM CREATING...still working on our "original" homeschool curriculum, it's actually pretty fun

I AM GOING...the library is doing Christmas Crafts tomorrow, I'm thinking about taking the kids...

I AM READING...A Biblical Home Education by Ruth Beechick

I AM Christmas Eve Dinner turns'll be my first turkey...

I AM HEARING...the water heater and Brian flipping the pages of his bible

AROUND THE HOUSE...we cleaned pretty extensively Saturday, I just need to keep it tidy. We had to move our dining room table into the kitchen because it was too cold to eat in the dining room. I spent about half an hour putting the boys clothes away today (I'm terrible about that...I find, sort, wash, dry, fold and sits...waiting to be put away). I'll have to mop the kitchen floor tomorrow since Wessy poured out almost an entire pitcher of iced tea on it tonight.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE warm housecoat

A FEW PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK...we will be celebrating the birth of our Savior
