For Today -

Outside my window... Pitch black and really frosty out there as temperatures have dropped.

I am thinking... About the past two days and the lovely time I have spent with my daughter and my baby grandson Taio. Natalie came over yesterday and spent the day with me as her partner was working.We had lunch at an Italian restaurant and then browsed the city centre for a couple of hours before coming back home. Today my hunny took me over to Bicester and we picked up Natalie and Taio from her house and all went for a browse around Bicester Village outlet and then lunch at the Garden centre before coming back here.It is now 10.30pm and they have just left to go home.

I am thankful for...So many things and I really would be here all night if I was to list them all!! I am so thankful for a loving and faithful Heavenly Father.He has seen me through some very tough times over the past two years as the battles go on!

From the learning rooms...I am work in progress and I have so much more to learn and apply.

From the kitchen... A snack tonight as had lunch out today.I did not pass on the dessert today and enjoyed a lovely chocolate sponge with chocolate sauce!! So yummy!!

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

I am creating... Memories and capturing precious moments.

I am going... To go to bed in about an hour after a hot chocolate with marshmallows! Another favourite of mine on cold wintry evenings.

I am reading...My bible.My magazines.Enjoying a devotional too.

 I am hoping... That my prayers will be answered and that I can move on and get some closure.

I am hearing... The tv and cars going by in the street outside.

Around the house...Candles burning and the beautiful smell of Black Cherry filling the air.A vase of beautiful roses that my hunny bought for me a couple of days ago.

 One of my favorite things...Spending time with family.How I love these times!

 A few plans for the rest of the week... Appointments.Stitching and reading.Some much needed relaxing too!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... My beautiful grandbaby Taio age 6 months and his daddy James.
