Simple Woman’s Daybreak December 8, 2008

Wow!  I’m actually getting the Simple Woman’s Daybook done on Monday! 



For today, December 8, 2008


Outside my window…  It’s an overcast day, an inch or so of snow on the ground.  Cold!   But I like to see snow in December!   Hopefully it will last through the end of the month!



I am thinking… of taking a nap as soon as I finish this!!!


I am thankful for… family, friends, church family who have lifted me in prayer over these past few weeks.   Those prayers are so very dear to me!


From the learning rooms… We started our study on HOW’s Wisdom Study this morning.   Also planning to do the Jesse Tree devotional (yes, we’re behind!).   That is new for us this year!   Working on our memory section of Luke 2:1-20 to recite for church in a few weeks.


From the kitchen… Right now, my oldest is making Christmas Mice with Oreos and Hershey Kisses for her students (and mine!)   We just finished a hodge podge of lunch (aka leftovers!).   For supper, Enchilada Bake.


I am wearing… One of my Christmas outfits!   It’s a light country green jumper with birdhouses and bows, holly and evergreen on it.  The blouse matches the pinky-red colors in the jumper with some of the jumper fabric as ruffles around the peter pan collar and sleeves.


I am creating… Still working on a poncho.   Got one quilted pillow top done.   Also still trying to finish that jumper and blouse from a month ago!!!


I am going… to give one piano lesson this afternoon–but I’m actually staying as the student comes here!


I am reading… The Heart of the King   I know I’ve said it before, but I HIGHLY recommend this book!   It has ministered to me greatly in the past few weeks.  Also reading Our Father Abraham by Marvin Wilson.


I am hoping… to continue feeling better and less tired.


I am hearing… Christmas songs on the piano, rattling paper in the kitchen.


Around the house… Jessica is making Christmas mice, Cassia is on the piano, Noah is riding his trike with one of the little girls’ strollers hooked onto the back (it’s his "trailer"), the dog is barking to go out, Susannah is making cookies for our students, Leah is eating  , Isaiah is "cooking" (picture to follow) and the little girls are playing stuffed animals upstairs.


One of my favorite things… is snow in December!  And of course, for Christmas!


A few plans for the rest of the week:  I hope for us to get our matching jumpers cut out this week (and at least started!), to clear out a spot in the sewing room to sew (I’m two weeks behind now–straightening is not the goal now–just a spot is!!!), and to get a hefty start on the homemade gifts!    AND to coordinate 7 Christmas lists (the boys are at my mercy!)!!!


Here is picture thought I am sharing…


The boys have been very "into" cooking lately……



Which makes finding the pans, hot pads and spatulas quite the adventure!!!




May your day be blessed in Him!
