Here is my Daybook entry for today ~ November 24th, 2008
Outside my window. . .the night is clear and cold. The smell of the neighbors woodsmoke makes me long for a fireplace to snuggle in front of.
I am thinking. . .about the projects around the house that I want to finish up before we leave wednesday evening for Illinois.
From the learning room. . .we are reading stories about fall & thanksgiving. Doing turkey crafts.
I am thankful for. . . God's mercies being new every morning. Each new day to make memories with my family. Each day a fresh start at being a better mother.
From the kitchen. . .lingers the smell of tonight's supper. Little meatloaf muffins, mashed potatoes, and cream cheese corn.
I am wearing. . .jammies & slippers.
I am creating. . .a song playlist to place on my blog. Need to have the perfect "fall" feeling songs.
I am going. . . to freeze pumpkin tomorrow for pies & treats over the winter.
I am reading...All Through the Night, by Davis Bunn. And the Power of Thanksgiving. And my new Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook :)
I am hoping. . . my husband is blessed in the woods tomorrow morning. It's the last day of the season and he has yet to get a deer.
I am hearing. . .my maids hard at work, drying clothes and washing dishes.
Around the house. . .its quiet and very peaceful.
One of my favorite things. . .Hallmark movies...and snow!
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .finish housework projects. MOPS steering team meeting. Catch up ALL laundry, & pack. Celebrate Thanksgiving with my family in Illinois.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing: one of our crafts today. The gleeful pilgrim hunter and a sad, sad, little turkey.
