Outside My Window~ Outside my window, after a big wind storm yesterday, I see many leaves on the ground. All the trees in my yard have lost their leaves.
Around The House~ Around the house I am enjoying my newly placed Christmas decorations. I've got a gingerbread candle burning. Christmas music is playing quietly in the background.
I Am Thinking~ I am thinking how thankful I am for all the things God has done for me. He continues to provide for me, over and ABOVE what I ask. I am amazed by GRACE.
I Am Praying~ Praying always for wisdom. Praying for my husband and his safety as he has moved this week to a new squad. In this new squad he will be much busier and maybe away from home a lot more. This week he starts out with duty, the 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. shift, tonight through Tuesday. Duty will be about 5 days every 6-8 weeks. Praying for the Lords care for the future. Praying for the desire of my heart.
From The Leaning Room~ Compound words, root words, suffixes, time review of hour and half hour. Counting by fives. I am still amazed that this is first grade. It seems very advanced.
I Am Wearing~ My new purple, long sleeved tee shirt, with a new purple scarf and brown denim skirt with knee high socks. . .no slippers.
((Thank you one happy momma for giving us this picture!! I love it!))
I Am Creating~ I've made a outline of my portion of our annual Christmas letter. I've cracked the whip around here and I think #1 son is almost done with his 1st draft of something creative for the letter. My husband is trying to cheat off my work and asked me last night what I have written so far. I need to order the pictures and think I will do that online and have mailed to the house. I have to purchase envelopes and stamps. Have I ever shared that this Christmas letter has been my annual tradition for many, many years? I send a letter and picture instead of cards. I mail about 175 letters every year! I love doing it. I love the Christmas cards and photos I receive in return!
From the Kitchen~ My menu is out of order. I'm going to make pancit and egg rolls for tonight. I'm having my friend Sharon and baby Anastasia for lunch tomorrow. My friend Alison and her girls may come as well. I am serving meatloaf, homemade macaroni and cheese, garlic green bean,s buttermilk rolls and cherry cheesecake for dessert. Saturday afternoon, the bachelors will come over and I'll feed them. Not sure what they will be getting.
((And see the link "Christmas"))
They do not have a sample of the one I have, Quiet Christmas Piano
I have another Hercule Poirot movie for this weekend as well.
My husband replaced our old laptop last week. Today is the first post I have made using the new computer. IT IS SO FAST!! I love it!
I am also enjoying watching FREE movies on the internet. PBS is playing three new Sherlock Holmes movies until December 7th.
One Of My Favorite Things~ Dates with my manly man. I think we're going out to lunch today. I've never been to Panera Bread and have heard it's good.
Have a great weekend Friends!!
