Outside my window...
Blue skies, coolish with the trees just starting to turn color.

I am thinking...
about how despite my best efforts to stay out of trouble, sometimes trouble just seems to find me! This weekend I have to coordinate a wedding at church; however the powers that be have scheduled Eucharistic adoration for the same weekend. We can't call off the wedding. We can't re-schedule adoration - what to do, what to do!! It is a delicate balance to strike between making sure this bride has her beautiful day and everything she is entitled too, while still making sure no one is bothered during adoration - and did I mention I only get 30 minutes for the rehearsal? St. Nicholas (patron saint of brides and I'm hoping that extends to church wedding coordinators) Pray for us!

I am thankful for...
The opportunity to record with three of our church groups today at church for our Christmas CD. Still I couldn't help but get a bit misty eyed that mom wasn't there to sing with us.

As a side note, I was at church from noon to about 4 p.m. recording. We had about 5 takes on one piece. It was time consuming, but I felt pretty good about it.

From the learning rooms...
Going to look at the PSAT test materials with Sam. Ordered Spanish Rosetta stone for him too. Going to have him look over Latin and Greek root words and prefixes and suffixes as well. The other kids and I are going to finish up our study of Missouri!

From the kitchen...
I have a great menu planned for next week but Tuesday is our Feast of the Archangels and I get to make our special angel haired pasta dish- YUMMMY!!!!

I am wearing...
I bought some work out pants from Target. I will be wearing them all winter. I love this pants!!! and a white T-shirt.

I am creating...
a clean house and preparing for the feast daythat we will be celebrating on Tuesday. Interestingly, this is the first year in a long time that we will be celebrating without any company. I did invite a couple of families but got turned down. They obviously never tasted that angel haired pasta dish!!

I am going...
to continue my new exercise regimen. I dared to step on the scale for the first time since April and wasn't happy with the results. I had gained 3 pounds. Still considering everything that has happend since then I should be grateful it was only 3 pounds!

I am reading...

Anticancer: A New Way of Life
(although personally I don't think there's much you can do about it - still it's worth a look.)

Senior High: A Home-Designed Form+U+La
The most intriguing homeschool book I've read in a long time!

Francis Beckwith's Return to Rome.  I first heard about this book from  Pastor Bartalucci who is pretty negative towards Beckwith's return to Catholicism. 

I am hoping...
to get through a busy week.  Confirmation meeting on Monday, feast day Tuesday, Music Ministry practice Wednesday, Cross Country meet Thursday, wedding rehearsal (in 30 minutes or less!) Friday, wedding Saturday, PSR and mass on Sunday - never a dull moment.

I am hearing... The air conditioner which actually masks the usual buzzing in my ears. It's actually just on fan now.

Around the house...
I am going to tackle the classroom and Mt. Neverrest- the Laundry

A few plans for the rest of the week: Ditto above!
