Outside my windows… the ground was mostly bare again when we got more snow. It’s definitely here to stay.

Inside my house… I turned the thermostat up because even 70 was feeling a bit chilly. I must be getting old.

Counting 1000 gifts… people to send Christmas cards to.

Prayers of the heart… good decisions. I have one that I’ve been struggling with for the better part of the year, and I’m at the point where I really do have to decide what I’m going to do.

What the (not quite so) little ones are up to… math and Mario Kart!

From my playlist… Saturn by Sleeping at Last. The first half of the song is beautiful instrumental music, and the lyrics of the second half will make you stop and think.

From my reading list… Tears of the Sea from MaryLu Tyndall. I’ve really been enjoying her novels lately!

From my needlework basket… I actually took a 20 minute break to sew today. It was a good distraction and I was able to get back to things with a fresh mind.

In the learning room… the Middle Ages and early missionaries are on the list for history over the next few weeks.

Random ramblings… I’m so tired right now that I can’t think of anything random to ramble about… does that ever happen to you?

Profound ponderings… “One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change.” – Unknown
