Outside My Window it is dark and a bit gloomy. The sun hasn't risen yet, but I have hope. I love to look outside before the sun rises and see if I can find a red spot in the sky. My mother-in-law (who is German) always claimed that if the sky was red, you could be sure that Christkind backt plaetzchen (the Christ child is baking cookies). What a sweet thought, isn't it.
I am Listening to the furnace running. It is really cold outside is -5C (23F).
I am Wearing pj's. The baby is sleeping in my room and digging for clothes would mean that quietness will end for a while.
I am so Grateful for this sing-along / dance video. It is my saving grace when I need to make dinner. My 20 month old will do almost all of the actions and tries to sing along. It is so cute to watch him while I am prepping dinner.

This was the first line of the 40 Days for Life reflection for today. I need to take this quote and print it on my heart.
I am Thinking about the visit from our homeschool facilitator today.
I am Creating pants for the boys. I bought material on sale last Thursday, to sew pants for the two big boys using this pattern. I plan on reinforcing the knees and still have a bit of figuring to do.
I am learning to love myself and that burnout is not something you get over after a few good nights of sleep.
To live the liturgy I am praying every morning and evening. This is a big deal for me. It isn't always easy to make the effort to pray and take time to reflect. Having littles makes it easy to make excuses.
Towards a Real Education pick up The Iroquois Trail again. I haven't been doing many read-alouds and I want to make a better effort this week to do that with the older children.
Towards Rhythm and Beauty do some nature walks this week and collect findings for the nature table.
I am Hoping and Praying to heal from my recent miscarriages. Before my most recent period came, I had another positive pregnancy tests. Two miscarriages in two months is a heavy cross, but it is my cross.
Around the House my dear husband has lumber for some small diy projects.
From the Kitchen a whole week of yummy goodness. I broke down and made a menu plan. I am always reluctant to do this because we end up eating so much more than usual and the food budget increases.
On my iPod: Songs for Sapplings for learning Bible verses and memorization.
One of My Favorite Things is having a coffee with my husband.
On the Calendar for the Week nothing, but that could change.
Worth a Thousand Words
Thank you for stopping by and God bless this monday morning.
