Outside my window...the laundry is drying on a rack...hopefully it isn't too cold. What do those with a rainy climate and no dryer do? And how does one get rid of all the lint without a dryer? Being 'green' can be romantic- except my laundry is rough and linty. Any advice or tips- please leave a comment!
I am thinking... that it is too cold to be without heat. We had a low of about 40 degrees and I am not turning on the furnace because of possible asbestos. My toes are cold.
I am thankful... that my cell phone finally can receive phone calls! It only took an hour on the phone with customer service and about 10 20-digit secret codes. Weird.
From the learning rooms... we really need to work on penmanship! Daughter #2- a really good student and 'advanced' in many areas- has penmanship that makes her look really young. I'm afraid she needs glasses.
In the kitchen...I need to throw a turkey in the oven. The prices during this season are too good to pass up, so I usually roast about six turkeys between now and New Year's.
I am wearing...nothing special. I really need to start getting inspired...
I am creating...a few Christmas surprises.
I am going...to need to adjust to this time change. I really don't like it when the little ones wake up before I do! I am struggling to wake up with a SERVIAM on my lips.
I am wondering... how my discipline/department at my college is going to survive. It's really bad.
I am re-reading...Pride and Prejudice- such a great book.
I am hoping...that one of my sisters plus her lovely family will make it here for Christmas! Please Please Please
I am looking forward to... finishing Nutcracker. that is all.
I am hearing... four kids running around the house, pretending to be monsters/dogs/cats
Around the house... I'm to the point where we need to re-paint (and 'thin no more'- hahaha), but with a 2 year old, we probably should wait until she is out of the drawing on walls stage.
I am pondering... all the good that '40 days for Life' has done for families and babies.
Some favorite things... Irish breakfast tea, big girls that read to little kids, playing cars with my son, a husband that got his bullet proof vest for his police chaplain ride-alongs, the feast of Saint Nicholas coming up (Dec 6th- and yes- he's an Eastern saint!)
A few plans for the rest of the week: getting ready for St. Phillip's Fast (our Advent- starting November 15th)
A photo to share: He's now 4 and a half, but he's still my precious little pumpkin!
