Outside my window...

No more Ice - the cold spell has passed and we are back to rain and grey skies. I think I will miss that icy sunshine.

I am thinking...

It is not so important what I do, but who I am.

I am thankful for...

My Church Family

From the kitchen...

Sausage/Pea Soup, chocolate chip cookies and extra Body Balance - seems there are a lot of sick people lately and we want to build up our immunity.

I am wearing...

Brown Pants, a green and brown checked shirt, and a cream colored sweater - brown mary janes

I am creating...

A Christmasy home today. Our nephew is in town helping Mr. Santos at the I get to stay home and be a favorite thing. I will set up a tree and some paper crafts for the children...Can't wait.

I am going...

To mail a few little gifts and cards I have ready

I am reading...

Christmas stories with the kids.

From the school room...

Snowflakes, paper chains and paper angels.

I am hoping...

To be a blessing to someone family? It seems there has been a lot of grumpiness around here lately - I know that I have the power to change that - Sometimes, I just get sucked up into the negativity and complaints, but I AM the I am hoping to make my home a peaceful happy place. First item on the list, SMILE.

I am hearing...

Quiet. Makes me feel rested.

Around the house...

An empty corner for a Christmas tree. A bare space for the Nativity. A blank wall for a Christmas quilt to be hung.

One of my favorite things...

Grateful children and a smile from my husband.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:

Memorize with the children the song "The First Noel" - they have to sing it Sunday and are far behind...At least they know by heart, Luke 2

Here is a picture thought I am sharing…

I am in awe of how our Lord is in charge of all things.


  1. Hi Ruth:

    I hope you find the movie. I will edit my post so that there will be a link to it. About my blog - usually it is very plain - My kids think it makes them feel dizzy :) - but I like it. Thanks for visitin.

    Mrs. Santos

  2. Mrs. Santos,

    Hello there! When you have a chance, please post the link to the movie "Star of Bethlehem." I would like to see that movie. How long is it?

    I'm glad that you got a little break from the farm, and get to enjoy the loveliness of homemaking. :)

    Take care.

    ~Mrs. Lady Sofia~

  3. I haven't seen that movie. I will look for it. I'm glad your ice is gone. It can be so dangerous. I hope you have a great Christmas. Doylene

  4. Your plans sound so sweet and homey Laura. :o)
