FOR TODAY November 30, 2009
Outside my window...
"Gray day, everything is gray.
I watch, but nothing moves today."
I am thinking... this is the last post of NOVEMBER!
I am thankful for... a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. That the boys are getting it. That they, too, are thankful. I know, I know, they really don't know how good they have it. And for that also I am thankful.
I am praying for... Grampa Grasshopper, away in Arizona, hunting elk.
I am wearing... jeans, mock turtle-neck, Christmas sweater :0)
I am creating... Christmas gifts. Being vague on purpose :0)
I am going... to Moms in Touch and later to the last rehearsal. Performances on Friday and Saturday!
I am reading... Little Town on the Prairie. So much more fun than The Long Winter!
I am hoping... Messiah performances go well, as well as the ever-popular Tuba Christmas, on Saturday. Oom-pah-pah.
I am hearing... Wyatt practicing piano - Go Tell It On the Mountain, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.
I am remembering... how much snow we had last December, and (don't tell the boys) hoping that we don't have a repeat of that! At least not right at Christmas.
From the learning rooms... planning a bit more wiggle room into our schedule for December. I started to right "a laxer schedule" but that didn't sound right... too much like Ex-lax, or something. Ew.
From the kitchen... elk roast, potatoes, veggies... in the crockpot :0)
Around the house... it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (sing along!)
On my mind... lots to do this week, and then I want to make my list... what to do this Christmas season. Some years we have an Open House and other years we just try to invite friends over often. With two Messiah performances the same weekend as Tuba Christmas, I'm leaning toward the latter.
Noticing that... starting to see Christmas lights up around the neighborhood :0)
Pondering these words...
Of the Father's love begotten
Ere the worlds began to be,
He is Alpha and Omega,
He the Source, the Ending He,
Of the things that are, that have been,
And that future years shall see
Evermore and evermore.
One of my favorite things... finishing things.
A few plans for the rest of the week... Moms in Touch, rehearsal, piano lesson, AWANA, getting a Christmas tree, PTO Day, Messiah, Tuba Christmas, Messiah again... and more I'm forgetting.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
