december memories.
project life | 50

right now.


right now...homeschool co-op is done for 3 full weeks. We are already loving the Friday-free of commitment

right now...the boys and I are reading aloud Carry On, Mr. Bowditch for American Literature and Amos Fortune, Free Man for American History.

right now...I've added a selection of "American History on the Widescreen" to our American History studies. This week we are watching Lincoln and Dances with Wolves.

right now...the weather is clear skies and chilly temperature but this crazy weather doesn't know what it wants to do.

right now...I'm reading J.D. Robb's Visions in Death - again.

right now...I am done with Christmas shopping but I still need to send off 3 gifts - oh, and I need stocking stuffers for the punks.

right now...I am tossing my One Little Word around for 2014. It is "a single word can be a powerful thing. It can be a ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and can be the catalyst for enriching your life." (Ali Edwards) I am considering the word FOCUS.

right now...I am planning my scrapbooking projects for 2014. I am taking 31 Things with Ali Edwards again. While I will be documenting my One Little Word, I will not be taking Ali's One Little Word class but instead I'll use the prompts from last years class as a catalyst to documenting my word. I will continue my 52 Gratitude's project and of course, Project Life. I am also considering an album to document my 50 in my 50th Year project.

right now...we have a naked Christmas tree in our living room that desperately needs lights, and snow flakes, and ornaments.

right now...I have our Christmas dinner menu planned: Chicken Parmesan, Salad with Olive Garden dressing, Garlic Bread, Pumpkin Pie and Homemade Whipped Cream.

right now...I am listening to a continuous stream of Christmas music. It is simply wonderful.
