For Today -

  Outside my window. Dark as now 11.30pm and I should be in bed as working an early shift tomorrow so a get up at 05.45am! I will pay for this I am sure but want to see the New Year in!

I am thinking...Where did 2012 go? Time flies by.

I am thankful for..So very many things. God is good and He is faithful. He has gotten me through so much and I can always rely on my Heavenly Father.

. From the learning rooms...God did not promise a smooth passage but He has promised light for the way and those doors He closes I have found He will always open a window!

  From the kitchen...My darling cooked and I had chicken with pan fried vegetables and mashed potatoes. Then I had a mince pie with fresh cream-so yummy!

I am wearing...My pj's

I am creating...Cross stitch projects and thinking about creating a photograph album for my sister in Georgia of all the family here and our wonderful memories.I know she would so love this!

I am going...To go to bed after Big Ben strikes.I want to see the old year out and the New Year in.

I am reading...A book by Joyce Meyers and my bible.

I am hoping... That I will not be too tired tomorrow as I am staying up so late when I know I have to be up early.

I am hearing... The sound of Michael's X-Box as he plays his new game.

Around the house...Reminders of family and friends and God's blessings. I received a beautiful angel with a bible verse on it and I was so touched. This was from an on line friend. It made my day!

One of my favorite things... Chill time and I am looking forward to my 9 days vacation time later in the week.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Some cleaning and de-cluttering around the house. Seems like I always have plans to do this and it does not happen! Catching up with e-mails and my blogs. Working on my cross stitch project.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
