Simple Woman's Daybook: December 13, 2010

December 13, 2010...

Outside my window... cold. VERY cold. Yuck.
I am thinking... about our schedule. Making some adjustments that will begin after the holidays.
I am thankful... that I do not have to go anywhere in this cold today.
From the learning rooms... Elizabeth starts her letter book this week. FUN!
From the kitchen... loaded potatoes. I would have had this but I forgot to soak the beans, so we'll have it tomorrow. Very yummy & easy.
I am wearing... black top w/ woolen, gray skirt.
I am creating... this cardigan. I'm hoping to be finished this week- I had to re-start after almost being finished, so really this is the second cardigan I am making. ;)
I am going... to try to start these skirts for the girls this week but finishing the cardigan is top priority.
I am reading... "Ten P's in a Pod" by Arnold Pent III. Patricia tells me it is very good.
I am hoping... that my father's outpatient surgery goes well this week. Praying for you, Papa!
I am hearing... the stillness of early morning. :)
Around the house... I can finally vacuum after waiting over a week for mine to be fixed.
One of my favorite things... soup on cold days.
A few plans for the rest of the week: prep for Elizabeth's birthday on Saturday; take the older children to see the new Narina movie.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing... here are the girl's dresses that I made around Thanksgiving:

Love the sweater pattern!

Tully Family said...

Thanks, ladies! And a BIG THANK YOU to Mom & Dad Harris, who helped watch children so I could sew one ENTIRE day. (WOW) And, Mom for helping me w/ my ?s.

The sweater is supper-easy to knit up. :)

you forgot this part:

"if you can knit." Which I cannot. I've tried, but failed miserably.

Tully Family said...

Well, yes. You need to know how to knit. But you could learn. I know you could.

Me too Dawn! Super easy huh?

Kathryn is cheering for Lizzie's birthday since she is turn "three," and she just loves baby Abigail. Miss you two girls!
