Hey guys! I love reading Day In The Life posts. I thought I’d do one about my Friday, Hanukah style! 🙂 So enjoy!
8:35 AM – I wake up and crawl out of my very nice warm bed into the cold air. XD I get ready for the day and then write in my journal and make my checklist for the day.
A still very tired me. XD I tidy my room and vacuum (anyone else love vacuuming???).
9:00 AM – I work on finishing up a post for Sketch Scribble Scribe. Then I head in for breakfast. (In our defense, we normally eat a lot earlier, but we started the day later than normal.)
While we eat, Mama reads to us from the Book of Maccabee. It’s super interesting! Then I do my (breakfast) chores.
9:40 AM – I finish up the blog post and get that up.
Then I start my school work for the day. I finish the Divine Comedy!!! It was a beautiful poem, guys. I’ve wanted to read it for a while, and then I ended up doing it for my school! So fun!
I also finish my third quarter in my Christendom class!!!!!! I love seeing that “100% completed” thing there. Ah, no better feeling. XD
I reward myself with lemonade. (It’s super easy to make – just lemon or lime juice, stevia, water and lots of ice!) Then I continue to work on school. (Math, yay.)
12:50 PM – I take a break for lunch. We’re having pb&j gluten free pancake sandwiches. (Long name, lol). Mama reads more from the Maccabees.
Lil Dovid eating his food. SO CUTE!
1:20 PM – Back to school! Lot’s of reading!
And writing classes!!!!
In the midst of trying to focus, there is a stream of constant screaming and fussing children. Lot’s of noise that makes it very hard to think. Even with very good headphones. XD
3:00 PM – I finish school for the day. Mama and Baruch head into town for their date. I babysit. While the kids are working on cleaning up the downstairs (I bribed them with promises of leftover rugelach), I start my chores.
Once that is finished and everyone is happily in place, I watch a couple sugar glider YouTube videos.
4:00 PM – I work on my daily writing and story planning. Normally I do this in my room, but since I’m babysitting, the couch in the living room becomes my headquarters.
Lot’s of world building! But I’m getting super close to being done and I hope to start my new novel at the beginning of January!
Maps are vital to this story and MAN, they are hard to make! I am super happy that I’ve been able to finish them up today!
Daddy comes home. 🙂
5:15 PM – Mama and Baruch get back. Jehosheba and I hang out and talk for a while. I work on responding to my snailmail friends (<3 ❤ <3). I check my blog, respond to comments, reply to a few emails and work on Hanukah gifts. (Each night of Hanukah, everyone gives someone a little gift).
6:00 PM – I sit down to read for a bit. I’m reading the Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson. 🙂
6:35 PM – I work on blogging things while listening to K-Love. 🙂 (CHRISTMAS MUSIC, GUYS!). Once I’m finished, I read more.
7:30 PM – Suppah time! For as long as I can remember, Fridays have been pizza/movie night. Tonight we had gluten free bbq, pepperoni and taco pizzas, along with oven-fried breaded zucchini.
If you can’t tell, I am a huge ran of onions. 🙂
We watch Godmothered. It is hilarious, besides the annoyingly cheesy ending.
We have leftover rugelach for dessert. Yum!
9:15 PM – The movie is over. We clean up from supper, feed the pets (Dreamer’s just waking up!) and put our Hanukah gifts on each other’s beds.
9:40 PM – Hanukah time!! Daddy says the blessings and then we light the candles. Mama reads Hanukah jokes and parodies on Christmas songs. The kids play dreidel (with beans) XD.
Our big book of Jewish holidays!
The beautiful candle light!
The longest candles lasts an hour and ten minutes! (We always time them and guess which one will last the longest!)
10:50 PM – The candles are gone and everyone is tired. We get ready for bed. We have family bible reading and say goodnight.
11:10 PM – I play with my little Inky and Dreamer. I check on the joeys and hold them for a little while while the parents are out and about. While I do so, I listen to Myths and Legends from around the world (from librivox- they’re awesome!!!)
AREN’T THEY THE CUTEST THINGS EVER?!!!!
12:00 AM – I crawl into bed very tired. Normally on Fridays, I stay up really late and read, but I am extra tired tonight and actually fall asleep pretty quickly (for me, anyway!).
And that is the end of a day in my life (while we celebrate Hanukah)! I hope you’ve enjoyed! Happy Hanukah!
