A New Week

FOR TODAY March 16, 2009...

Outside my window... Grey rainy skies and a stiff breeze, it's going to be a stormy week

I am thinking...about my morning routine. I think it needs some changes for my days to run smoothly. Spring is a good time to make morning changes as it's starting to get lighter earlier - there's less temptation to stay all snuggled under the covers!!

I am thankful for..This brand new week with a clean slate - to start new. Last week was an icky week!

From the learning rooms...A St. Patrick's Day Unit. Learning all about Ireland - the culture, traditions, history and mapping it. We're also learning all about St. Patrick who was a passionate missionary who spread the gospel over much of Europe. It should be fun and interesting.

From the kitchen...the menu for the week is all planned - Yahoo - today I'm making our yogurt and granola. We're having hamburgers for dinner and tomorrow is an Irish dinner with green sherbet for dessert. Fun!!!

I am wearing...Denim skirt and cozy pink top

I am wrap with my pretty teal yarn. I haven't gotten very far but I have worked on it!!

I am going...Grocery shopping and to the fruit stand and then birthday gift shopping for a certain little girl whose big day is this week in our home!! (more on her later!!)

I am reading...Philippians and The Darcy's Give a Ball

I am hoping...That I can set a cheerful tone in my home this week. I haven't been very joyful lately and I want to change that. This is my current prayer and the change I'm desiring to to make in my life.

I am hearing...The kids playing with Esther in the living room - and coughing - they are all still a bit snuffly

Around the house...General tidy up and laundry - of course. I want to get my kitchen good today

One of my favorite things...Praise music and Hymns - I love both!!! They both have so much to offer and they both lift my heart and remind where my focus ought to be!!

A few plans for the rest of the week: We have a birthday this week so we are getting ready and then celebrating!!

Here is a picture I'm sharing: We woke up to giant snowflakes falling yesterday - they were just huge!!! - This mini snowstorm was followed by a major windstorm that knocked out our power for a time.

Yes, we had a birthday yesterday in our house, Mr. Fifield. Always fun. It is really nice to celebrate someone just being a person we get to love! Enjoy the same at your house.
