I am thinking..Of sooo many things. I need to get together the rest of my plans and ideas for Thanksgiving. I came across a perfectly wonderful idea HERE that I intend to start this year. I have to make my place cards and I am considering making a couple more aprons. And I need to keep working on my Christmas lists too if I am to get the majority of that done before Thanksgiving as I had planned.
I am thankful for....a perfectly wonderful week-end; time with my parents on Friday night and then a few chores and a date with my hubby on Sat. We saw the movie Morning Glory and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and followed it with a wonderful dinner out. Sunday brought a wonderful morning service followed by lunch and a visit with my oldest son Joe and Lindsey. Lindsey received student of the month on Friday AND was moved to the top math group for her grade 4. They take all the top math students from all 4 fourth grades and combine them together in a fast moving class of their own. She was soo excited, and I am soo proud of her. She works soo hard. I am thinking a little treat from Grandma is in order. = ) Sunday night found us down in San Diego again to hear my son preach. How this blessed us both, and we got to see our grandkids and be introduced to Moe….click HERE for more details, haha.
I am wearing....comfy jeans and ¾ sleeve length multi colored top. I do have on my warm fuzzy slippers too.
I am remembering...what it was like when I was much younger and my kids all lived at home and this holiday season would come upon us. I was always soo busy. I wish now I had spent less time doing what was really not all that important, and more time doing what was.
I am going...to go to Joanne’s a little later today and look at Fabric. I am soo excited. LOVE this store. And they have one of those little skooters I can whip around in and rest my knees when I get tired.
I am reading....a few different things….the book of Phillipians ~ how I love this, and still reading Karen Kingsbury’s new book, and I am browsing through a couple of Christmas magazines I found the other day.
I am hoping....to put in a GOOD week of dieting….
On my mind...there is sooo much…but front and center right now is how grateful I am for all the Lord has blessed me with.
From the kitchen...a new chicken recipe I got from my sister Diane. I am quite anxious to try it as it sounds soo yummy. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Around the house....I am doing some extra cleaning projects to have everything all done and ready for the holidays. It amazes me how things still get when there is only 2 of us living here.
Plans for the week....Cleaning projects, a little sewing, my hair on Tues. (these roots are soo bad) a day with my mom Wed., lunch with girlfriends on Thursday, and then we are back to Friday already…time does go soo fast.
One of my favorite things....A comfy chair, a cozy blanket, a cup of tea, and a LONG talk with one of my kids on the phone.
A picture to share…
Not exactly diet friendly, but how yummy does this look?
