The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today...December 1, 2008

Outside my window...This is a late Monday post - it's dark, COLD, and I see the pretty Christmas lights my son put up yesterday.

I am thinking...about how much I need to do in so little time.

I am thankful husband, my son, my daughter, my warm home, hubby's job, health and happiness.

From the learning room...trying to get lots of work done this week since next week will be a week of long, late night rehearsals for Nutcracker. I usually assign an easier workload the week of Nutcracker.

From the kitchen...Tonight's dinner was meatloaf (from the freezer - YA! for freezer meals), macaroni and cheese, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Most of the rest of the week is unplanned for the most part. I'll be using some freezer meals and things from the pantry. Robert's on vacation this week so I am trying to be a bit flexible ; )

I am wearing...jeans, gray, burgandy and black turtleneck

I am creating...worked on Christmas cards today

I am do some Christmas shopping tomorrow afternoon.

I am Shopping for Time.

I am find a good deal on a dress for Rachel for an after-Nutcracker party.

I am hearing...the t.v. and Robert on the phone

Around the house...Christmas decoration boxes are everywhere, waiting to be put away or used; the laundry pile from our Thanksgiving trip is significantly smaller than it was this morning.

One of my favorite and lunch with my big sis last week.

A few plans for the rest of the week...hopefully a trip to the Christmas tree farm on Saturday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
(I'll have to try to add one later - we had to change printers this morning and the one that's currently connected doesn't have a picture card slot)

Thanks to Peggy for hosting The Simple Woman's Daybook.

We are missing the Nutcracker this year, and sad about it (the girls keep saying, "we want to go see Rachel Drew!" :)), but our Children's Choir Christmas musical dress rehearsal is that morning, so there was no way to make it work. Praying for smooth days for you all until it is over!

Love your Christmas-y blog design!!
