Outside my windows… we got a bit of snow today to top off the ice skating rink in the driveway.
Inside my house… so much tea! It’s definitely the season for lots of tea drinking by the coal stove.
Counting 1000 gifts… the houseplants on my table.
Prayers of the heart… for everyone with this nasty stomach bug and cold that’s going around to get better quickly!
What the (not quite so) little ones are up to… unloading the dishwasher for me, and I have to say that it’s rather nice to have the extra help with the never-ending flow of dishes.
From my playlist… Steve McDonald’s albums are a current favorite, and Loch Lomond is the track playing right now.
From my reading list… Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado. Very good book that’s giving me plenty to think about.
From my needlework basket… working on a shrug for Munchkin… that needs to be done for Thursday night. This is totally doable, right?
In the learning room… Famous Men of Ancient Greece and Children’s Homer have been on the reading list lately. Lots of questions from the kiddos about how to properly pronounce some of these names!
Random ramblings… Winter is getting to me a bit earlier than usual this year. I think it’s been the extended cold snaps we had from Christmas to mid-January. Even so, when my cousin in Florida talks about the baby gators in the lake near where they live, I start thinking that the cold, ice, and snow probably isn’t the worst thing to deal with…
Profound ponderings… “It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.” – Excerpted from the Declaration of Arbroath, Scotland, April 1320
