FOR TODAY December 8, 2008...

Outside my window... it's gray, but the red leaves are cheery.

I am thinking... of too many things at once and my brain wants to explode!
I am thankful for... a new and exciting scrapbooking venture that I can't tell you about just yet! :o)
From the learning rooms... we made a model of the earth with an orange and a metal knitting needle (the axis).

From the kitchen... we are having "tired dinner" - baked potato bar featuring taco meat.

I am wearing... sweats and trying to keep warm - the thermostat says 70 but when you have virtually no insulation in your home it feels like 50!
I am creating... a top down cardigan from my friend's handspun for my oldest daughter (the one of the youngest is stalled as I need to make more yarn).
I am going... to go to Joyous Crafters at church tonight.

I am reading... Reimagining the Church by Frank Viola, Kasztner's Train: The True Story of an Unknown Hero of the Holocaust by Anna Porter and Right-Brained Children in a Left-Brained World by Jeffrey Freed and Laurie Parsons.

I am hoping... that this third bout of everyone being sick is the LAST!

I am hearing... Come All Ye Faithful on 3rd Day's Christmas CD.

Around the house... children are creating with Legos and laundry is waiting to be put away. (blogging is more fun!)

One of my favorite things... is my laptop, so that I can blog and try to catch up with email while still being with my family.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Recuperating and starting to bake for the cookies that we take to the neighbors for their holidays.
Here is picture thought I am sharing... I shared this on my old blog, but I'm shivering and needed a bit of summer. This is Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park, Washington.
