Outside my window...I see the dark morning light.
I am thinking...about how today is my last day of school and I will begin my Christmas break tomorrow! Yay!
I am thankful for...my many blessings!
From the kitchen...I have wrapping stuff everywhere and much work to do.... it's a good thing that I have a few days before the children are finished with school.
I am wearing...my cozy gray corduroys a long sleeve black shirt and a Christmas red wool zip up sweater.
I am creating...delicious eddible gifts as well as lovely botanical cards for family and friends this Christmas season . I wrapped the cookies and brought them to school. Last night I wrapped the cards and will deliver them today to my teacher friends.
I am going...to stay present this holiday season.
I am reading...Guardians of Ga'Hoole. I finally finished the book I was reading. It was great. Now I have moved onto the next book in the series. It is just as good. We have been reading for a half hour each evening together in quiet. It is nice to sit and read with my children.
I am hoping...that today goes smoothly and that n enjoys her first practice with the 5th grade band today. This is quite an honor as she is only in the 4th grade and received a phone call inviting her to be part of the 5th grade band for the holiday concerts. I am very proud of her.
I am hearing...the drone of the television... morning cartoons.
Around the house...I still have much to do to prepare for the holidays. I plan to finish decorating the Christmas tree and living room on Friday. Then I'll be able to put away all the clutter of decoration debris. I can't wait to just enjoy the decorations.
One of my favorite things...is spending time creatively with my children. I wish this happened more.
A few plans for the rest of the week: well I'm late with my daybook so I don't have much of the week left! I'll be finishing my shopping and decorating and tending to all the other regular household stuff.
Here is picture I am sharing..
