What I'm thinking: We have baby rabbits again! I was getting concerned because this was the second time we had bred Thelma Lou, but Friday we found 5 cute little babies in the nesting box. The rabbit business stays alive....
What I'm reading: I am reading a book given to me by a friend called Hearts of Fire from The Voice of the Martyrs. In it are 8 amazing stories about Christians in other countries who are persecuted.
What I'm listening to: A Nerf gun war going on behind me and little voices getting breakfast in the kitchen.
What we're learning: We are doing a review of what we have learned so far this year in history, I'm focusing on reviewing math facts with everyone and we are learning catechism question #26 this week.
What I'm watching: Fall colors are upon us. So I really want to carve out some time to go take some photos this week. But I might not get to it until next week....
What's cooking: Over the weekend I roasted a whole chicken in my crockpot. Part of it went into Chicken Nachos on Saturday and then today I am cooking the bones and the rest of the meat for Chicken Vegetable Soup.
What I'm buying: Today is my big monthly shopping. Off to Costco, Trader Joes, Target and Winco.
What I'm thankful for: God's providence. I have been wanting to make some food changes...like going more organic and making my own bread. In the last 2 weeks I have been given a grain mill, have gone in on raising organic pork with some friends, and found a way to have organic produce brought to my door. Now to decide if the last find is the best decision economically....
What I'm creating: Lesson plans for the hymn I am teaching our co-op, The Lord's My Shepherd. I am really looking forward to talking about sheep and how they truly need a Shepherd.
What I'm praying: For my friend who has cancer. For wisdom as they seek other treatment and for the healing of her body.
What I'm planning: Thinking about Thanksgiving recipes....anyone trying anything new? I want to, but I love the old favorites.
What we did this last weekend: We had a lovely Saturday at home; going for a bike ride in the afternoon and watching Toy Story 3 with the kids that evening. Then yesterday we had a great morning worshiping with the saints, then off to a friends house for the afternoon and dinner.
What I'm looking forward to: We have our 4-H Rabbit meeting this week, then this weeks co-op meeting is our art history/craft day in co-op. Next week we are taking off and I am ready for a week with no school. And I love Thanksgiving!
