Outside my window... It's really cold, although the sun is shining! Yesterday it snowed about 2 inches, most of it is melted, but there is still a skiff of the white stuff lingering on the ground!
I am thinking... That it's been a long time since my last post!
I am thankful for... The snow!
A favorite quote...
"Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time. "
~Laura Ingalls Wilder~
From the kitchen... I think I will make beef, vegetable stew today, and bring some to my mother in law tomorrow for her dinner (It's always better the second day!) . My sister-in-law is staying with her, and I think she probably needs a break from cooking! I might even make cinnamon rolls to go with it!
I am wearing... Jeans, a brown sweater and slippers.
I am creating... I'm in the process of making Christmas presents . . . . shhhhhhh . . . . it's a secret!
I am going... Tomorrow my husband and I are going to go run errands. He is taking the day off, as he is working 7 days a week . . . again!!
I am reading... Just started the Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins - so far so good!
I am hoping... That I can get caught up on all my blog reading. It's amazing how much you miss when you don't read them everyday!
I am hearing... Christmas music from my blog.
Around the house... Beds to make, laundry to do, floors to sweep and vacuum, busy, busy, busy.
One of my favorite things... Watching old Christmas movies - my favorite is, "White Christmas".
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Tomorrow - running errands with my husband
Saturday - work on Christmas presents
Sunday - church
Here is picture for a thought I am sharing...

"If we opened our minds to enjoyment, we might find tranquil pleasures spread about us on every side. We might live with the angels that visit us on every sunbeam, and sit with the fairies who wait on every flower."
