Outside my window..I see a picked up back patio with pretty roses and a rusty mini-trampoline ruining the view
I am thinking...that I really should start planning our menus
I am thankful for...the librarian who had mercy and waived half of our fines
From the kitchen...leek and potato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches
I am wearing...teaching clothes...only 3 more classes until Christmas break!
I am creating...next year's Byzantine Catholic Jesse tree (we start Advent on November 15th, so the regular Jesse trees aren't sufficient)
I am going...to buy a new camera so I can post a windowsill photo as per Leila's instructions
I am reading...C.S. Lewis' Til We Have Faces - it just came in the mail
I am hoping...to get family photos taken and soon!
I am hearing...my stomach growl- forgot to have lunch
Around the house...there is so much work to be done, dishes to do, laundry to fold, bills to pay and yes- kids to hug and read books to- we have fresh books from the library- we promised to be more careful this time
Some of my favorite things...were given to me by St Nicholas yesterday- sweet and spicy pecans, Oregon Chai, Panda black licorice, dried blueberries- all from Trader Joe's
A few plans for the rest of the week...various church activities and gearing up for holiday baking for friends and neighbors
Here is a picture for sharing...
