Thoughts for Tuesday, February 17th

Outside my windows… it’s very cold, and there’s a pretty frost pattern on the window by my desk this morning.

Inside my house… both coal and propane stoves are lit today. The wind has really been something else!

Counting 1000 gifts… co-workers who pray for each other.

Prayers of the heart… for friends who are traveling today.

What the (not quite so) little ones are up to… breakfast while wearing fedoras and marveling over how Mom can type without even looking at the keyboard.

From my playlist… Light it Up by for King and Country. This song spoke to me the first time that I ever heard it… it still does.

From my reading list… the most recent issue of Home Educating Family Magazine came! That always tops the reading list.

From my needlework basket… mittens for now, though I’m anxious to get back to the socks I was working on.

In the learning room… vacation this week, but I’ll still manage to sneak in a bit of learning. Someone recommended How the States Got Their Shapes on Netflix, so I think we’ll check it out this week.

Random ramblings… Winter seems to always bring chapped and irritated skin. I’ve been trying calendula oil on that this year, and it’s been working exceptionally well. You can buy it at the health food store or make your own by infusing the carrier oil of your choice with dried calendula. Just let it soak in a jar of oil for a week or two before straining the calendula out of the oil.

Profound ponderings… “Behind every successful woman, is a substantial amount of tea.” – Unknown

Caught on film… don’t forget to enter the Dear magazine giveaway this week!
