Outside my window... it's still dark, but the voices of many cows bereft of their calves is filling the air. Our landlord moved all the calves to another pasture last night and it's been musical ever since.
I am thankful... our firewood has been made and our coalbin is full. We're ready for winter!
In the kitchen... I have a whole chicken ready to plop into the slow cooker. We'll be having chicken and dumplings for dinner again tonight. It's one of our favorite things to eat.
I am wearing... A long, cozy, burgundy housecoat/robe. I'm always cold in the morning when I get up and tend to wear it for at least half the day.
I am creating... I'm trying my hand at making a quilt top in a design I have never tried before. So far it has been a lot of trial and error.
I am going... no where today, but tomorrow night I have to take the children to another Christmas pageant practice.
I am wondering... how long it will be before they get serious about making the costumes for the pageant. I was asked to help, but since no one else is doing anything I can hardly "help" It's making me feel a little antsy.
I am reading... Other than my Bible I don't have a whole lot of time for reading anything other than school related things. We're all enjoying reading through the Life of Fred language arts program.
I am hoping... that our landlord will get our water situation fixed today. He brought a new water tank out last night, but it was defective and didn't work at all so he'll be trying again tonight. In the meantime the water we have is murky and needs care before being fit to drink.
I am looking forward to... Thanksgiving!
I am learning... that homeschooling high school isn't as scary as I thought it might be.
Around the house... The remnants of a blanket fort from last night are still on the floor. The breakfast dishes from Mr. Pepper and I are still on the sink waiting to be washed until the children wake up in about fifteen minutes and have their breakfast.
One of my favorite things... my Inkjoy pens. I enjoy writing, a lot. And ever since I discovered Inkjoy I like it even better.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Besides the daily dozen and our regular school work every day.......Today music lessons. Tomorrow night pageant practice. Thursday grocery shopping. Friday wrapping up our school week and doing some type of fun art project. Saturday laundry and deep cleaning the house.
