Outside my window… beautiful sunny warmish–THIS is what fall should be like

I am thinking… how well behaved my three year old is when I stake her.

I am thankful for… quiet time–especially when it’s quiet
bargains–I had fun yesterday thrifting alone and trying out a new retail store.
Being essentially done with Christmas shopping.

I am wearing… Gap slicky pants, an Iowa State hoodie, and a Cedar Falls Cross-Country long sleeved tee from when I helped coach in college, and yes, I’m actually dressed to the shoes.

I am remembering… fun and laughter with my grandma

I am going… to see all my family this week. Probably. If my grandma dies. She hasn’t eaten or drank for 8 days, I don’t know how she’s still alive. It must be torture for her.

I am reading… A Higher Justice–it’s due tomorrow and I’ve already renewed it! It’s good, but I just can’t seem to focus on it. Going to get started on Spiritual Mothering, and join in on a Bible study late

I am hoping… Kevin gets a lot done this week so he can stop feeling so stressed about harvest. Although, I’m disgusted how yesterday he combined soybeans and today the house if full of Asian beetles.

I am creating… Thanksgiving/Christmas cards. Combined. Unusual, but I like Thanksgiving better than New Year’s.

On my mind…I have no idea–having trouble focusing

From the learning rooms… Weather (they brought one of the books into my bed this morning. First thing of the day, we’re reading! Sheesh. Whose kids are these anyway?)

Noticing that… the more sleep I get, the better mood I am in–wild, I know.

Pondering these words…
Matt Redman – You Never Let Go
From the album Passion 06: Everything GloriousOh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

From the kitchen… Ham balls, mashed potatoes, pumpkin dessert, yogurt
Around the house… putting away clothes–it seems like I am always putting away clothes.

One of my favorite things… when the baby comes tearing toward me as fast as his little legs can rotate, and throws himself at me, knocking me over and then him chortling at his greatness.

From my picture journal…
Hey Cadrian, what are you doing under there? Oh, searching for and subsequently eating, little bits of shredded cheese? Well, that’s ok then. Carry on.
