For Today -

Outside my window... Dark as posting late today! After some milder weather it turned colder and guess what we had today?More snow!! Just a small fall but so pretty!

I am thinking...About my Aunt Shirley who passed away suddenly two years ago today aged 62.This was a terrible,devastating and painful shock to all the family.

I am thankful for... Family and friends.Memories and so much more.The list is truly endless! I am reminded of:

Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus:concerning you.
                                1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

From the learning rooms...Waiting still on an answer to my prayer about my job situation. This is really near now as I received an e-mail last week informing me that I will hear around the 10th January.

 From the kitchen... Cajun chicken,rice and vegetables and I did not eat dessert this evening! The temptation was there but I did not give in!!

I am wearing... Blue jeans and a maroon sweater.

I am creating...  Still working on cross stitch projects and photo albums.

I am going... To go to bed soon. A hot chocolate and cream and  a sprinkle of cinnamon is sounding inviting and I did skip dessert didn't I?!!

I am reading...My bible.A book called "To Know Him" by Gloria Copeland. This book is all about building a relationship with Jesus. How to recognise His voice when He speaks to you and to share your heart with Him openly and honestly and so much more! This is another book I bought on my trip to Georgia recently. I love books!

 I am hoping... That I can get everything accomplished that I need to do this week.

I am hearing... Just the laptop keys as I type.

Around the house...Beautiful memories and reminders of so many blessings! Thank you Lord for all you have done for me and will do!

 One of my favorite things... Stitching,reading,relaxing.....

A few plans for the rest of the week...Hmmm. Catching up with mailing out. How is it that I seem to always be behind? Some de-cluttering. Spending time with my hunny and my family.

 Here is a picture thought I am sharing... The beautiful beach and blue sky at the Isle Of Wight and my beautiful grandson Taio James.
