As the Christmas song says "Spending time together with the family Sharing lots of Love a Happiness". That's how I've been spending my time, though I managed to sneak in quite a bit of reading time too.
I am loving Lynn Austin's Series Chronicles of the Kings. I've finished book one, God's and Kings, book two, Song of Redemption, and I'm almost done book three, The Strength of His Hands. I started keeping a reading journaling with short outlines of each chapter and quotes that spoke to me in some way or another, but I gave up with the chapter outlines in the third book. I may share some of my thoughts later when my notes are near me.
I've also started Economics in One Lesson. The first couple of chapters are really short so I whizzed through them and I have to say that I am enjoying it so far. I'm also taking notes on that that I may share later.
Most of my time, however, has been spent with the family. My parents and my sister and her husband were all here for Christmas with us and we so enjoyed having them all here. Thanks to their generousity we were able to purchase a wii system for the children and we've all been having so much fun with it.
As the new year looms closer my thoughts are starting to turn towards planning for it. I've been working on personal plans, housekeeping plans, and homeschooling plans. Most of the planning is happening in my head right now but hopefully it will makes it's way out onto paper soon. :)
