Outside my window...it's totally dark at 6:15 PM - actually has been dark since 4:40. I know because I was picking up Claire from the tutor at that time.
I am thinking...about what time we'll have dinner after the kids get home from their worship evening - Caleb leads this event on Monday nights, every other week, for kids in the youth group.
I am thankful...for the good doctor's appointment I had today - finally I understand the thyroid disease I've lived with for 18 years thanks to a new doctor.
From the kitchen...Chili, cheese and chips...almond flour chocolate chip cookies for dessert. YUM!
I am wearing...my favorite black sweater, favorite Orsay jeans, my fuzzy Crocs
I am reading...a book called "A Journey to Victorious Praying" by Bill Thrasher - it's rockin' my world.
I am hoping...that Dave and the Slovenia team have an awesome time together these next three days as they study spiritual healing.
I am going...to Poland tomorrow to Christmas shop, talk and drink coffee with my friend, Sharon.
I am creating...Christmas 2009 at our house! Hope to get some more decorating done this week after the painter leaves (he's painting our ceiling after part of it fell in late one night in September...now that's a story I haven't told yet!)
I am hearing...quiet, quiet, quiet. Dave is downstairs in his office prepping for Slovenia, kids are gone, Lily (the dog) is sleeping on her little rug in the kitchen. It's peaceful.
I am praying...for Tyler as he begins to study for his first final exams at Moody next week.
Around the house...are big sheets of plastic hanging in the living room, thanks to the aforementioned painting activity going on.
One of my favorite things...still...my daily homemade latte, with pumpkin spice syrup. Mmmm, so soothing and comforting.
A few plans for the rest of the week...get kids to bus station at 5:30 AM tomorrow morning for a school trip to Vienna, see Dave off at 7 AM for trip to Slovenia, greet painter at 7:30 AM and hope he finishes by 10, find perfect Christmas tree tomorrow so I can decorate asap, Bible study Thursday morning, watch Biggest Loser Finale sometime this week...anyone else watching??!! Don't tell me who won!
A picture I am sharing...of Claire and I on her birthday this year with the gluten free German Chocolate Cake that I baked for her. You can't imagine how yummy it was!
