February 6th, 2012 Daybook

Outside My Window...Gosh the weather has been so mild around these parts for winter. It's been mainly in the upper 40's most of the winter. Honestly, I do not mind it at all. The kids on the other hand would like more snow.

I am thinking about...How I've neglected this blog. I really do need to take the time to update on a more regular basis.

I am thankful for...Dear friends and family that have been lifting my husband and family up in prayer.

From the schoolroom...As the winter has been the most unusual so has our school year. Typically, we have an illness from Thanksgiving to March. Knock on something hard (like my head) we have had only two illnesses and that's it. So, we've been able to get through a lot of schooling. Currently, we're traveling to Europe and this week's destination is Russia. The kids are enjoying our travel around the world this year.

Living the Liturgical Year...I can't believe we're looking at Lent already. I need to get that together and this year, I plan on doing another 40 bag challenge.
From the Kitchen...We're eating no processed food. We've been eating whole, healthy foods for a few months now and I've seen a marked difference with our health. We're not as sick as we've been in the past and I've dropped 15 pounds!
I am wearing...workout clothes. Yes, I've been exercising 3 times a week. Big boy said I'm a much happier mommy. Yeah!
I am reading...Sense and Sensibility. I'm enjoying reading the classics on my e-reader. I hope to see the movie when I'm done with the book.
I am wondering...How to remove old (like decades old) paint splatters off of wood trim. I would like to avoid refinishing the trim as that would take time that I don't have nor want to dedicate to this trim.
I am praying for...All Holy Souls in Purgatory.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
