Outside my windows… there’s lingering snow dusting the ground. I suppose I’ll have to get used to that again!
Inside my house… yellow caution tape… It’s the perfect party decoration for a little boy requesting a “construction” birthday.
Counting 1000 gifts… So thankful today for Camo. He arrived seven years ago today!
Prayers of the heart… it’s been such a hard month and a half. Not because of any one big thing, just a lot of little things that keep piling up. I’m praying for strength and rest this week.
What the (not quite so) little ones are up to… since birthdays around here mean LEGOs, the kids will be happily occupied all evening!
From my playlist… Angry Birds from The Greatest Video Game Music album. (It’s the London Philharmonic. You know it’s going to be good.)
From my reading list… When Treetops Glisten. It’s a Christmas themed novella collection. I’ll be posting a review here after I’ve finished the book. Since we have snow, it seemed like a good book to pick up.
From my needlework basket… I need to knit nice, thick wool boot socks for kids. I’m trying to wing it, but sock #1 didn’t exactly turn out.
In the learning room… Munchkin had requested books about airplanes a while back, and I came across an interesting used book with lots of photos that I picked up for her. Yesterday, she surprised us with her knowledge of stealth aircraft!
Random ramblings… So, I got a new cell phone. My old one wasn’t ringing through about half the time when someone tried to call me. As much as I dislike change, this one was necessary. I have a pre-paid phone because I honestly don’t use it enough to justify an actual monthly plan. Transferring the number and minutes from the old phone to the new one was not quite as easy as they make it out to be… After going through the transfer process on their website, three times using the automated system, and twice with real live CS reps, they told me that it could take two business days for it to “finalize”. In the meantime, I had no phone. Ah, technology…
