Outside my window...the sun is shining giving the appearance of warmth but the huddled chickens under the pine tree let me know otherwise. Our blue-jays are back, terrorizing all other birds in the yard. I love watching them.

I am unproductive I am. This has been a busy week with lots of running and a non-sleeping sick baby. I'm also thinking that my husband was sooo right on putting on that expensive insulation. I shouldn't have drug my feet on purchasing it.

I am thankful for...three kids with no cavities (first time ever). That saved us a ton of money! I'm also incredibly thankful that I get to stay home with my kiddos. I can't imagine 3 sleepless nights in a row and having to function at a job.

From the learning rooms...squeezing in some lessons between running errands. Next week we are planning on being home more so maybe some more focused work.

From the kitchen...can't decide between chicken strips or mandarin beef. Oh the choices!

I am sweat pants and a t-shirt. I'm hoping no one comes to the door. I'm not getting ready until later this afternoon when I have to go to a visitation.

I am creating...hopefully some clean piles of laundry and a dust-free family room.

I am stay home this weekend.

I am reading...finishing up When you Rise Up by R.C. Sproul Jr. While I had expected this book to give me bloody toes, I have found it to be very encouraging.

I am hoping...that my Nanny passes away today. This cancer has been grueling on her caretakers and cruel to her. She should be heading home any time now. They've stopped all meds, her breathing is slow, she has the "death rattle," and is not responsive. Nanny will soon be with Bopi and they will both be worshipping at the feet of Jesus.

I am hearing...the hum of the Corn Stove. It's pretty loud but keeps the house warm. The baby crying because I put her down. The Letter Factory movie, over and over again. Leeny loves it.

Around the house...clutter and dust. Presents needing wrapped have taken over a corner of the hallway. The Baby has dumped out a load of clean clothes and scattered them across the family room floor.

One of my favorite new Blueberry Delight coffee with White Chocolate hot cocoa mix stirred in. Yummy!

A few plans for the rest of the week and weekend: visitation for our co-4-H leader. He passed away rather suddenly from brain cancer. He was 29.
Baking cookies this weekend, catching up on laundry, watching a couple movies, church...

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

This is my precious Momma with my Nanny. This was back in October at a "Girls Night Out."
Have a great weekend!

  1. I enjoyed your daybook. I know you will miss your Nanny. At first I thought she was your children's care giver. It's a great thing to go to be with the Lord. God bless you, Doylene
