Simple Woman's Daybook - December 1st

For today, December 1st, 2008:

Outside my Window... Still damp from weekend rain and very, very cold (for NC - in the 30s)

I am thinking... about whether or not to sign my eldest up for Drama. He loves it, but with my soon-to-be-adopted daughter coming home soon I'm not sure how that will all work.

From the learning rooms... I need to spend some time today and tomorrow working on my Advent lesson plans.

I am thankful for... a second photo of my daughter in Africa

From the kitchen... a large, large pot of Turkey-Barley Soup

I am wearing... still my robe!

I am reading... "Parenting Your Internationally Adopted Child" and "The Secret Thoughts of an Adoptive Mother". I'm feeling a little obsessed about taking in all the info I can!

I am hoping... that my family (especially my hubby) will feel better today (colds!)

I am hearing... my cat purring loudly on my lap

Around the house... pulling out some Advent items and moving the Christmas boxes out to the garage so I can get to them easily as I need them during Advent.

One of my favorite things... Chai - think I'll have a second cup!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...

  • Getting ready for our St. Nick's Day celebration on Saturday, Dec 6th.

  • Picking up a borrowed crib.

  • Arranging some playdates for the kids.
