Just a simple way to update family and friends of kid pictures, and what's going on in day-to-day life. Inspired by Kara's weekly journal day book entries.

I am thinking: The kids have 8 minutes left of quiet time, and I need to get dinner started.
I am thankful: for the quiet of afternoon rest times and cold nights at home

I am wearing: About 5 items I've had for almost 10 years. I need new clothes.
I am creating: this blog post and Christmas bags (for sale next week!)
I am going: to make butter chicken for dinner. Thank you Costco sauce.

I am wondering: how this whole mess with our old property management company will go. I'm trying not to think about it.
I am learning: how to call myself an artist and a writer (double cringe), and working again, toward artistic goals without shame, hostility, and procrastination

Around the house: some laundry waiting to be put away, a space heater, finished (but yet to be photographed) sewn Christmas gifts, a freezing cold bonus room (you can see your breath!)
In the kitchen: are the ingredients, sitting out, for imitation and gluten free Starbuck's Cranberry Bliss Bars for a little get together tomorrow. I need to get to that tonight.
I am pondering: how the first Portfolio Presentation will go, on Sunday, with our homeschooling teacher
Lukka exploring the beekeeper equipment at The Honeybee Centre
One of my favorite things: is watching an episode (or two!) of Gilmore Girls on netflix nearly every afternoon. I completely take rest time very seriously.
A few plans for the week:
* outside play time (1-2 hours a day) whenever the sun is shining
*a walk with a friend to Starbucks for an end-of-week treat
*girl time with a good friend and loosing my Anne of Green Gables the movie virginity
*getting our new car insured
*finishing up sewn Christmas bag sets
*gathering everything for the kids' homeschooling portfolios
*reading a few hours
