Simple Woman's Daybook for October 12th
Outside my window…6:07 and dark. Fifty-two degrees with a chance of rain.
I am thinking…about school today after our week-long break. Sebastian and Una both said that it seemed like two weeks--a good sign that they were a bit bored. No one groaned at the mention of school last night!
I am thankful for…a lovely visit from Fr. Tom Sullivan, CPM, one of our Fathers of Mercy. Today is his birthday, and we celebrated a bit with pizza and beer and cheesecake--cupcakes for the kids--and my sister and brother in law came by with nephews to help celebrate.
From the kitchen...we've taken a 3 week break from muffins. I think that we shall have raisin bran muffins and spiced apple sauce today.
I am creating…I am about 2/3 done with the first sleeve of Una's sweater. I so want to finish! I have several other things I would like to knit as gifts for Christmas!
I am reading…maybe I should turn this into the "I wish I could read" line, as it seems there isn't much reading getting done besides what I read for the kids' school and my morning scripture reading!
I am hoping...to have a really good school week and get a lot done and keep the kids happy!
I am hearing…Nothing! Why did they wake at the crack of dawn all week when there wasn't any school?
A few plans for the rest of the week: make butter (I am stockpiling it now for holiday baking); a trip to the library on Thursday; start working on the kids' costumes I'll be ready at the end of the month; work on my Christmas planning!!!! October is going by quickly!
I am praying...for strength and patience and calm as we move into this crazy time of year. Autumn is my favorite season, but with all the holidays and planning, it can get a bit crazy. May God help me to do what is necessary and forget the rest!
Picture Thought: Gemma at 4 days old. She will be 13 weeks tomorrow. Isn't it amazing how much they change in just a few months?Visit more "day-bookers" at Peggy's Simple Woman's Daybook. God bless your week!
