Outside my Window...
The sun is rising, the sky is lightening,
and the temp is oh, so chilly
I am thinking...
how I look forward to the cooler weather
and wearing cozy sweaters
From the learning rooms...
school books have been ordered (woo hoo!)
and we anticipate their arrival
I am thankful for...
God's Word and His people
and how He uses them to encourage us
From the kitchen...
eggs & toast; sandwiches; and tacos
I am wearing...
light blue, paisley dress with 3/4 sleeves
I am reading...
1 Samuel and John (KJB)
I am hoping...
this cooler weather leads to snow this year!
I am creating...
pale pink regency gown (for me)
and bloomers for the girls
I am hearing...
sounds of children awaking in the monitors
and Beth crunching cereal at the table
Around the house...
floors, couches, counters, and the like
await to be tidied up from the weekend
One of my favorite things...
receiving hugs & sugars (that's southern for kisses)
from my children when they wake in the morning
and travel downstairs
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...
share photos from our homeschool field trip to 'the island';
bless our home; continue with our learning times;
await the arrival of our new school books;
go to piano lessons that Ally teaches; visit with friends;
take Ally to her new endocrin appointment;
have fun at our homeschool group park day;
cozy up with my children, a blanket, and a book
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
"If you are cold, tea will warm you.
If you are too heated, it will cool you.
If you are depressed, it will cheer you.
If you are excited, it will calm you."
~ Gladstone, 1865
What lovely cool weather to sit with a hot cup of tea!
"This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it."
~ Psalm 118:24
