Outside My Window~ SNOW, SNOW, SNOW!! About 18 inches greeted us upon our return from Missouri Tuesday Night. It took my guys 1 1/2 hours to shovel out the driveway so we could park the van. The new snow makes my yard look so clean and BRIGHT! The dog is having a hard time navigating in the deep snow to use the facilities.
Around The House~ I am so glad that I clean the house before I take trips. It is so nice coming home to a clean place knowing the only thing I face is doing laundry from the trip! My house is a lot less chaotic than the one we left. We had, at times, 14 people gathered around for festivities. I am enjoying peace and quiet of my own home.
I Am Thinking~ I am lifting poor bachelor Mickey in prayer today. I had a bit of a sleepless night as the Lord continually brought him to mind last night and I would pray. Still haven't heard any update on his condition. We are going to try to find out more today. Not sure if we'll be able to see him in ICU because we all came home sick with colds. I remain miffed that his 'guardian' didn't let us know about Mickey while we were gone.
I Am Praying~ Praying for lots of things as always. For wisdom. For my far away family. For the desires of my heart. For Mickey. For David. For #1 son as he prepares to make his own way. Praying for the future of my little family.
From The Leaning Room~ School will resume in earnest on Monday. Piano lesson will resume as well. He has thoroughly enjoyed his two week break!
I Am Wearing~ Denim skirt, brown tee, black and cream cardigan and long brown socks. Thinking about a new year, new me for 2011. I am seriously giving consideration to cutting my hair short and letting my natural color come through. What do you think about that? I came across a great inspirational web sight last night. Going Gray Looking Great!
(Christmas morning. I think I am complaining about having my picture taken before I've had enough coffee!)
I Am Creating~ Have a big to do list for the new year. Including that photo album project. I still want to write about Brotherly Love, Christ's First Love=the church. I've hesitated doing my Brotherly Love one for fear I would offend or be too strong in my opinions. But after this past week I think I need to get it off my chest. I saw an idea for a swag that I really liked and would love to try to copy.
One Of my Favorite Things~ Food scented candles. I received a coffee candle for Christmas with 3 coffee scents included. I can't wait to burn it. Enjoying all my new music. I bought myself 3 David Nevue c.d.'s a Majesty Music Christmas c.d. and received a Christmas music c.d for Christmas. It is so peaceful to listen to piano music. I can't wait for heavenly music.
From The Kitchen~ Frozen soup going in the crock pots. I think I have Spicy Black Bean and Hot and Sour soup. I will serve that with cold cuts for making sandwiches. My menu in the coming weeks will feature a lot of #1 son's favorites.
I Am Enjoying~ The quiet of my home.
I am Sharing~ Not too much to share this week. Just lots of boring pictures of our Christmas time.
(Uncle Doug got a head scratch-er for Christmas. It was really weird feeling. It sent chills down your back in a nice way!)
(Maggie wearing a pretty apron for future domestic duties!)
Have a great weekend dear Friends!
