Daybook for December 2, 2012

Outside my window...rain

I am thinking...of Christmas gifts

I am thankful...for my husband

In the kitchen...a perfected brownie recipe

I am wearing...aqua top, sage skirt, black sweater and warm socks

I am creating...the daybook entry

I am going...to work tomorrow

I am wondering...how I will ever catch up

I am reading...The Kentish Manor Murders

I am hoping...for a smooth week

I am looking forward to...my parents' visit at Christmas

I am learning...that teaching writing to other people's children isn't easy

Around the house...too much clutter

I am pondering...Advent

A favorite quote for today..."O Come O Come Emmanuel"

One of my favorite things...The Sound of Music

A few plans for the rest of the week...soccer practice, grocery shopping, karate, Bible study, Parish Council

A peek into my day...missed Mass and a mission meeting due to bronchitis

B got two stripes in his first belt test!

7 Quick Takes Friday #118

  1. I renewed all of my library books online today instead of going out in the storm.
  2. I am listening to the Traveling Wilburys on last.fm. I love the Traveling Wilburys.
  3. Tax season is in full swing, and I am loving every minute of it. Well, almost. It's because I have great co-workers!
  4. I am sneaking a soda in the office. I only let the kids drink soda on Sundays.
  5. I have no idea what's for dinner tonight. That's not good.
  6. DoorMan went out in the storm with all of the crazies on the roads.
  7. The boys are supposed to be cleaning their room. The "get rid of" pile is tiny.
