For Today...November 24th
Outside my window...it is another beautiful Florida morning!
I am thinking...I want to put a Christmas background on my blog, but I'm trying to wait until after Thanksgiving (we cleaned up and "set the stage" for Christmas decorations in the house, but they probably won't be out until Friday).
From the learning rooms...Jonathan's supposed to finish his math book this week (we'll see...), Thanksgiving stuff, and we're thinking about a Victorian/Turn of the Century lapbook.
I am thankful for...sooo many things, we are blessed!
From the kitchen...ribs in the crockpot last night, I'm not sure about today. I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner at my parents' house, I'm making bread, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin chocolate chip cheesecake (and cookies for the crazies who don't think they'll like pumpkin chocolate chip cheesecake).
I am wearing...White silky jammies (why was it in the summer I was always dressed and now I always have my jammies on?--Actually I know why, it's because in the summer I was driving the kids all over the place in the mornings to Theatre, kidscollege etc...now we're "just home")
I am reading...Summer of the Swans--after reading Bridge to Terabithia last week I checked out a bunch of Newberry Medal books at the library (for myself).
I am hoping and praying...that things start looking up for my brother and his family, they still can't get in their house after the tear-gas incident from 2 weeks ago!
I am creating...boxes of Christmas presents to be shipped, and a creative Christmas letter is in the planning stages, it is hard this year because I feel like I blog a Christmas letter almost everyday!
I am hearing...Jonathan on his computer next to me and Madi and Jake eating breakfast downstairs.
Around the house...already washed and hung out Jake's pee-soaked bedding (that's going to have to stop!!). Cleaned off the bookshelf and hutch to make room for Christmas.
One of my favorite things...Disney passes...we're probably going today just because we can.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Our 14th Anniversary on Wednesday, Thanksgiving at Meme and Grampa Carlie's, and probably shopping and getting our tree on Friday!!!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...Jake always "licks his chops" and when it gets cooler outside this is what he looks like...
It's really not hard to do the daybook simply go here.
