What I'm thinking: I was just reading through some blogs in my reader and realized that I forgot that Saturday was the tenth and I completely missed December's Ten on Ten. I'll aim for next month...
What I'm reading: I feel like my busyness is really starting this week, so I am putting the deliberate reading aside for a while. I did finish The King's Speech, but only made it a few pages past Charlemagne in my history book.
What I'm listening to: We have two cousins that are spending the week with us, so right now I am hearing chattering, laughter, and planning for the day.
What we're learning: This week I am focusing on a couple of math issues, we are reviewing the catechism questions #1 through #54, and working on our 4-H presentations. We'll start science and history back up after our winter break.
What I'm watching: Over the weekend my Sweetie and I watched The Two Towers, extended version, that my dear friend let us borrow. And I have to say that having read the books, watching the extended version is now the only way to watch them.
What's cooking: Right this very moment there are two boys in my kitchen making waffles. They told me they would make me breakfast if I would let them cook in the kitchen this morning. I am making Split Pea Soup later this week....oh so very yummy.
What I'm buying: Our mouse is going out on us and I am accidentally double clicking on everything....I am really appreciating the undo button! So off to find a new mouse....
What I'm thankful for: I am really thankful today for my friends. They are there for me when I am down, they extend grace to me in so many ways, and they make me laugh just when I need it.
What I'm creating: Most of our Christmas cards are ready to go out in the mail today. I still need to write our annual family letter which I will post on our blog today or tomorrow....I would love to make it a tab that people can click on so you all don't have to see it up there for the next couple of weeks.
What I'm praying: We have been breeding our rabbits now for a few months without any success. Now Bookworm is trying a different breeding schedule and so far, no babies. And even thought it might seem silly to some of you, I am praying that if it is God's will, we would have some little rabbits soon.
What I'm planning: The baking begins this week....and since I have extra helpers I am thinking we will get a lot done. And for the first time, this year I am planning to make a gingerbread house from scratch. We'll see how that goes....
What we did this last weekend: We ran some errands on Saturday and then did some things around the house. Then we all watched Cars 2 that evening. Sunday we went to church and Sunday school, then we went over to our friends for a fun afternoon.
What I'm looking forward to: Getting some baking done. Finishing our last week of school. Going caroling at the assisted living center. A fun Christmas party this weekend.
