For Today -

Outside my window... Very dark as already evening time.I did want to get here earlier as missed posting yesterday but it did not work out!

I am thinking... Of the lovely day out I had yesterday with my daughter Natalie,her partner James,my grandbaby Taio and my hunny Michael. We went to the outlet Mall in Gloucester again. This time we had longer to browse all the wonderful stores. Loved all the great prices! Picked up some Yankee Candles half price!! This was amazing and I think I cleared them of their stock!......lol. Yankee candles are expensive here and this was too good of a bargain to miss!

I am thankful for... Continued blessings. I so often sit and reflect on the Lord's grace and His bountiful blessings. I have so much to be thankful for. I have so much to share of His goodness,my journey of faith and lessons learnt in my blogs.

From the learning rooms... The Lord is still teaching me to have faith and to have patience.I am still waiting on answers to prayer.

From the kitchen... Salad and quiche and garlic bread. Apple pie and cream! Yummy!

I am wearing... A red sweater and blue jeans.

I am creating... Picking out projects to stitch for family for Christmas. This is always exciting and I really do not have much time left before Christmas to get these stitched!

I am going...To have a relaxing evening. A bubble bath and lounge in my pj's! Watch my recorded shows of which there are many.

 I am reading... My bible and new devotional book. I am also reading The Christmas Promise. I love the series of these books.

I am hoping... Still waiting,praying and hoping for outcomes.

I am hearing...The laptop keys and the Gems jewellery channel. I have this on in the background.

 Around the house...Many precious gifts from family and friends. Candles burning and the beautiful fragrance of banana bread fills the air! My vast angel collection. I am reminded of this bible verse:

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unaware.
                                                   Hebrews 13:2

 One of my favorite things... Me time! I am sure we all love these times.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Spending time with my family. I have visits planned and places to go.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... A photo of Natalie my daughter and I taken  at Bourton-On-The-Water.
