Outside my windows… the sun sets really early now.

Inside my house… a few new ornaments are hanging out on the shelves and waiting for the tree.

Counting 1000 gifts… the kind words of someone I had contact with through work today were very much appreciated!

Prayers of the heart… for the local people who are finding themselves without a job at the beginning of winter.

What the (not quite so) little ones are up to… seems split between reading and designing a new video game level in Mario Maker.

From my playlist… listening to the audiobook of Boundaries. Definitely giving me things to ponder…

From my reading list… An Amish Second Christmas novella collection. A little more just for fun reading to offset the weighty audiobook listening.

From my needlework basket… still knitting for Christmas! Three out of four sweaters for kiddos are done. Only one more sweater to go… (I’m wishing that I hadn’t decided to use the same pattern for all four now!)

In the learning room… great excitement over protractors! I’d rather do a geometry proof than draft and angle any day, but Mr. Q seems quite content with the drafting!

Random ramblings… I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving and my anniversary the day after that. It will be nice to spend time with family and just slow things down for a couple of days.

Profound ponderings… “Today me will live in the moment. Unless it’s unpleasant, in which case me will eat a cookie.” – Cookie Monster
