My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

This is what it sort of looks like around here now.

I am thinking...
of how peaceful Christmas can be if you just concentrate on Advent first!!! Mr. Pete and I don't get bogged down in a lot of Christmas shopping. We get a few things for the kids and some loved ones and then enjoy the time - not the stuff!!


I am thankful for...
all the people in my life, family and dear friends. That is what makes the holiday season special.

From the learning rooms...
 The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with Noah and Gabe this week. We will also start the Screwtape Letters which  Sam starts on Huck Finn!  I'm doing something a little different as far as writing goes. Gabe will be taking an intensive online 10 day course with CurrClick.   Very affordable at $60 considering four years ago I paid a teacher $40 a month for a year to teach Sam the very same thing!!  We'll see how it goes.



From the kitchen...
Pot roast tonight. White dinner tomorrow for the feast of the Immaculaet Conception.

I am wearing...
Black pants and a gray shirt I hate but I need to do some laundry

I am creating...
Memories this week- tonight the boys sing for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception which will be extra special for us as our new pastor will be installed.  Tomorrow we are having an all white dinner to celebrate the feast day.  Saturday will be Mexican fare to celebrate Our Lady of Guadalupe.

I am going...
order my Christmas cards tomorrow!!


I am reading...
Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book:4th Edition 2005
The Divine Office for Dodos: A Step-By-Step Guide to Praying the Liturgy of the Hours



I am hoping...
to be more peaceful and prayerful during this Advent season.  I am also hoping that Calvin will find his way in life.

I am hearing...
buzzing in my ears - again.


Around the house...

everyone is still sleeping!  

A few plans for the rest of the week:
1. Walk or exercise tape every day.
2.  Get the house in order at least the basement and first floor.
3.  Put the Christmas tree out at Raphael's grave site and think of someway to decorate Mom's niche?
