Outside my window…leaves are falling.
I am thinking…about the exciting days ahead.
I am thankful…that in 8 days my oldest son and his wife will be here.
In the kitchen…pumpkin bread for my English class ladies.
I am wearing…my go-to apron.
I am going…to teach one my English classes for the last time.
I am wondering…if I will ever get my Christmas shopping done.
I am reading…The Women of Christmas by Liz Curtis Higgs
I am looking forward to…all of my children in Japan for Christmas!
I am learning…to prioritize my to-do list.
Around the house…a scented candle is burning.
I am pondering…the Light of Christmas.
A quote for today…
“Christmas is so much more than a holiday. So much more than buying and wrapping and cooking and eating and trimming with tinsel and mailing out cards. It’s a season for reflection, for preparation, for renewal.” ~The Women of Christmas, pg. 4
One of my favorite things…white lights and nutcrackers. Oops! That’s two.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
-trip to Costco
…missing my doggie as I decorate for Christmas this year. She would have been 8 years old on 12/06. She used to growl at my snowmen and we always took a picture of her in front of the tree each year. Her eyes looked so sad in this picture. Now I know why.
