The Simple Woman's Daybook for Dec. 14, 2009

December 14, 2009

Outside my window...the morning is taking its time in stretching out and dispelling the darkness.
I am thinking...that my list of gifts to make keeps growing.
I am thankful for...colorful wool felt, embroidery floss and an imagination.
From the learning rooms...the children are in the midst of their Advent lapbook.
From the kitchen...are the leftovers of my four year old's birthday cake.
I am wearing...lavender Nick & Nora owl pajamas. They are so cute and cozy, and made extra-special because dear husband put them under the tree for me on St. Nicholas's feast day.
I am creating...a great white shark in felt, snowflake ornaments, a prince doll, a roll-up flannel board and three little pigs in blue felt, a Winter Wonderland paper doll set and a list of Greek Olympic gods to draw.
I am have a mellow week after weeks of work craziness, so I need to rest up, drink hot tea with lemon (I'm sick right now), wear my owl pajamas all day and craft once I unplug from work.
I am reading...the Gospel of John.
I am hoping...that my full-time regular job is less stressful than it has been for the last month.
I am hearing...silence for once, and it's a nice sound.
Around the house...bits of felt from my crafting project, piles of blankets and pillows from our family sleepover/movie night, little plastic cups of frosting for yesterday morning's cinnamon rolls ... Christmas lights sparkling their hello.
One of my favorite Christmas lights and the manger. The manger is one from my childhood, and the figures are an assortment of other Nativity sets (the ones that survived my children's toddler years). It makes for a mismatched look that I love.
A few plans for the rest of the week: make children's Christmas gifts, finish the Winter Wonderland set for the store, see if I feel better and if so babysit a sick friend's child, go see a boat parade later in the week.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...(The gal in the picture is not me. She's my more attractive doppelganger. I'm rounder and black-haired. However, these are the lavender pajamas I am wearing, and they are so comfortable that I needed to share them with you. They sold like hotcakes at Target, so my city is well-pajammed and cozy this winter.)

Thanks to The Simple Woman's Daybook for this meme.

Yeah, at Target you have to get it when you see it or it won't be there the next time!!

Exactly! DH was there getting a couple of little items for the kids on St. Nicholas's Day and saw that and thought of me. Purple? Owls? Winter-themed? Soft? Pajamas? It's like the ultimate outfit for me. LOL

I was wondering if you had any links to what you used for your Advent lapbook. My children are very interested in doing one this year. Thank you!
