For Today

Outside my window: It's snowing in the 'Ville!

I Am Thinking: Of all the things that still need to be done upstairs to get ready for carpet to be installed in the hallway and the kiddos rooms. Yes, this is a repeat from last week - we had a terribly busy week and while I did get a few things done, it's still not ready for carpet. I'm also thinking about getting my behind in gear because Brian and I have taken the day off to spend together. This is an annual thing we do while the kids are in school/daycare. Nothing big, nothing planned - just a day out together where we do a little shopping, exploring, lunch someplace that we wouldn't typically take the kiddos. Very relaxing indeed. Our once a year chance to talk uninterrupted!

I Am Thankful For: My sweet hubby and so thankful that he enjoys spending time with me as much as I him.

From The Kitchen: Well, not exactly qualified for this area. We need to find a Carolin friendly topic :-)

I Am Wearing: Sweats, bare feet ... about to change into jeans and sweater for our outing.

I Am Creating: Again, maybe I need a new category for me. Not much creating these days but it would be nice to be able to scrapbook again one of these days.

I Am Going: Out with Brian! We're going to go explore Danville, Harrodsburg and Perryville. We may not make it to all 3 but we'll give it the old college try.

I Am Reading: Just on a lark, picked up a "Log Home Living" magazine at Lowe's last night. Not that we'll ever live in a log home but it does remind me that at one time that was my dream. Who knows, maybe we'll have a little cabin in the woods one of these days.

I Am Hoping: That the weather holds out today.

I Am Praying For: My mother-in-law and for Ryan as he learns about state government these next few days. Miss the little guy. That a decision I finally made is the right decision. Not really anything I can share now but hopefully will be able to in the next week or so.

I Am Hearing: The sounds of Rebecca playing. She loves to take little things like marbles or any little pieces of anything that she can find and put them in a toy coffee pot. She has her little dishes on the floor and is just as busy as can be. What a blessing she is! I'm just now remembering that it was on our "day out" last year that we received the call with our final travel information to be able to book our tickets to go and get her.

Around The House: A clean kitchen and for now a clean den. That is until Bex brought her toys up. But it's so fun watching her that it's really okay. Such a busy little girlfriend.

One Of My Favorite Things: Stillness and quietness, not too much of course - and not often. But with Ryan and Emma gone and Rebecca playing so quietly ... it's nice. Very nice.

A Few Plans For The Rest of The Week: Tuesday night - taking the kids shopping for the family the preschool is providing Christmas for. Wednesday - maybe a date night with Brian? That one is still up in the air. Thursday gymnastics and then on Friday the Christmas play starts at church and Brian is in it. This year it is running on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Have a good week everyone!

I love log homes, that would be one of my dream home possibilities... too bad there are not any logs where I live:(

Praying for you with big decisions, we have made several this past week too... also can't share yet but I'm at peace about it all.

Enjoy the snow, I wish it would do a little of that here!

I can just imagine little Rebecca playing, she is such a sweet child!

It all sounds so nice. I just don't think I am feeling the Christmas spirit this year. I am very happy and content, but not eager to decorate or shop!

Maybe next week!
