A Few of My Favorite Things...

  • The kids got a new gaming system.  I am really enjoying the ability to make an avatar.  She is a little bit chubby, her hair is a beehive with a side curl and her wardrobe rocks.
  • The wonderful smell of potpourri permeates my house right friend gives me a bag of this every year and I LOVE it.  Cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, whole cloves, a lemon, an orange.  Cut up the lemon and orange, put all in a saucepan full of water, simmer and enjoy.  I put mine in the fridge overnight and then bring it out again the next day.  It makes several days smell delicious.
  • Sleeping in and not having to be anywhere or prepare for anything.  Today, Thursday and Friday are the only days I have like that.  The other days are 'run like the wind, Bullseye' kind of days.
  • I don't have papers to grade, report cards to figure OR lesson plans to make.  *SIGH*  (That was a huge sigh of relief.)
  • We get to do a really cool service project tonight that helps local food pantries.
  • I'm reading a good book.
  • Erik and I got a down comforter for Christmas.  Oh be still my heart.  AWESOMENESS to the 10th power.
The absolute best thing that we got for Christmas came from God.  The best WHITE Christmas ever.  So beautiful that it caused an extra dose of Christmas cheer everywhere it landed. 

I sit back and realize that I am blessed beyond measure.  Maybe I should act it.  ( ;
