Daybook Entry, November 23rd

FOR TODAY...Monday, November 23, 2009

Outside my window...Novembery

I am thinking...about what we (Brian) still needs to pick up from the grocery for our Thanksgiving Feast Thursday

I am thankful Savior, my helpful husband, my healthy children, my warm home, my full pantry, my English bible

From the learning rooms...UGH

From the kitchen...I have a chicken to cook, and dinner to go with it...

I am wearing...a sage green top and my denim skirt, Christmas socks and fuzzy purple slippers

I am creating...a Christmas gift for both my girls

I am going...Korinne has a stretching class tonight (ballet), and we only have ONE NUTCRACKER REHEARSAL THIS WEEK (tomorrow)...YAY...YAY...DOUBLE YAY!!!

I am reading...The Rackety Packety House, Thanksgiving on Thursday, Augustus Ceasar's World, the Sonlight Catalog I got in the mail last week, Squanto Friend of the Pilgrims, Making Brothers and Sisters Best Friends, Romans, and we're reading and re-reading In November and The Thanksgiving Story, The Child's Story Bible, and a very neat children's version of My Utmost for His Highest called Jesus Wants All of Me that my Aunt Chris sent down to my children last month

I am praying brother and his family and my sister and her family

I am hearing...Molly Shannon sing "I Feel Like Some Christmas" on Santa Claus 2 (did I mention we're on Thanksgiving Break this week?)

Around the house...pretty tidy, lots of clean laundry to be put away, and we will be super cleaning Wednesday for Thanksgiving Thursday and Christmas Decorating Friday...Also trying very hard to plead my case for a Family Closet to Brian...maybe getting through a little...maybe...hopefully...Please Honey :)...

One of my favorite things...our fireplace...we've been using it in the morning and evening for the last few days now, it's only gas, but it's still sooo cozy

A few plans for the rest of the week: whatever we feel like doing...AND...Thanksgiving...AND...Christmas Decorating...what a fun week this will be!

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
