The weather in my neck of the woods:
Overcast and a chance of rain, plus it is cold today!
One of my simple pleasures:
Seeing the children working with daddy
Hearing our youngest "read" stories
Feeling our unborn baby’s movements – not long until we meet this new little one. Ticker says 5 days! I’m hoping less than that.
On my bedside table:
I know these are also the same as last week. I just can’t read very long before I fall asleep!
An Encouraging Word
Tea Leaves – a devotional meditations for women
Keepers At Home
On my TV:
No TV here
On the menu for tonight:
Potatoes, squash, green beans, salad and fish or a chick pea dish. We are keeping it simple, even though it is Thanksgiving here.
On my To Do List:
Today, my husband is home because of Thanksgiving, so we are getting lots done around the house like bringing in firewood and doing some cleaning and organizing in the basement. Also dear hubby is planning to put in a toilet in the master bathroom this afternoon. Yay!!
I washed the rag quilt I just finished for my husband
Do a load or two of laundry
Write a letter or two
New Recipe I tried last week:
In the craft basket:
One skirt left for daughter, I have been sewing skirts here when I have a chance! Six done so far…

Looking forward to:
Meeting our new baby, it is coming closer!
Riding Cinnamon, our horse, once baby is born and I’m recovered and rested.
Homemaking Tip for this week:

Lesson learned the past few days:
God cares for me.
On my Prayer List:
Wisdom and patience for each day as I teach and train our children
Up coming labor and delivery of our 6th baby. This has been really on my mind, prayers appreciated!!
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
This morning when I read from Tea Leaves, it written by one of the ladies just after she had her first child. I thought it was fitting to read that, even though I’m due with baby #6, we all know how we feel just after birth and when looking down at our baby.
Dear Lord, fill me with your peace and give me strength and courage for the labor ahead of me. Thank you for this new baby; we are so looking forward to meeting this new little one! In your Son’s name, Amen.
