Outside my window... again, the dark. This time, also, there is rain. It beats incessantly, mindlessly, an unceasing tapping on the glass, begging to come in.
I am thinking... that there are only three months til Christmas, and if, as in other years, I intend to give hand-made gifts, I had better get started on at least the planning stages now.
I am thankful for... good friends. Salted chocolate. A comfortable chair.
From the learning rooms... furniture has been re-arranged. Books have been collected. And we are still having fun!
From the kitchen... I am learning how to prepare two meals at each mealtime. I have now switched from eating raw to vegan, so I'm being mindful of what I can eat as well as what the rest of the family prefers.
I am wearing... warm clothes again... long sleeves, woolly socks, my old hole-y slippers.
I am creating... a Feliz dress for Ellie, from pink baby-wale corduroy and brightly coloured quilting fabrics.
I am going to... start making lists of things I need to do. I'm feeling the need to be more purposeful.
I am reading... recipe books. Vegan ones.
I am hoping... and hoping.
I am hearing... promises.
Around the house... a mess. Re-organizing and re-arranging will do that.
One of my favorite things... spicy chai. Now, I make it with almond milk. It's not the same.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
- choir practise
- an overnight visit from a friend
- a home visit from our homeschool teacher/liason
sunshine for a rainy day
