For Today…November 10, 2008

Outside my Window…crisp, fall day

I am thinking…how amazing my children are

From the learning rooms…Quiet

I am thankful for…family, fresh baked bread, books and coffee

From the kitchen…pumpkin cake (my husband's new favorite, I make one every two weeks. Will we ever get sick of it? I don't think so.)

I am wearing…skirt and shirt

I am reading…the Bible, The Brendan Voyage...Very interesting book about Irish sailor monks who crossed the Atlantic in a leather boat.

I am hoping…the rain will hold out so we can have some outdoor playtime today

I am creating…an atmosphere of warmth and love...after a day of learning, playing and creating, tonight we will sit down with hot chocolate and marshmallows, snuggle under a nice blanket and read the next chapter of The House at Pooh Corner...a great read-aloud that everyone enjoys.

I am hearing…Josiah playing with Ruth

Around the house…Reading, playing

One of my favorite things…Cool nights with warm treats

I am praying for... Calli (always!) with great news from her mama: two of her three tumors are gone!!! Thank you Lord! , my beautiful sister

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…work on crocheting blankets, visit our friends from Sacramento!

I accomplished since last week...Many more things have been organized.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

The favorite pumpkin cake that I make... delicious, with a little scoop of ice cream on top.

My husband absolutely loves pumpkin cake. I make a homemade cream cheese frosting to put on it. It never lasts long around here!
