~~It's Thursday~~EDIT***Pics added**

Outside My Window~  BBbbrrr. . . it's very cold outside.  That's what I said last week!  It's still true.  It's about 27 degrees with the windchill making it feel like 20 degrees.  My heater runs a cycle about every 10 minutes to keep us warm!  There was a tiny bit of snow on the ground this morning, the first that stuck.  Looks like we may have a chance at more snow on Sunday.

Around The House~  Around the house, peaceful Christmas piano music is playing.  Christmas lights are blazing.  Company is coming for visit this afternoon.!!
I Am Thinking~   I am remembering the 'stress' of the last week or two while I tried to finish getting my Christmas mailing done.  I am so thankful to have that project done.  It was so easy to order my pictures on line.  I am excited to start my photo album project after the first of the year.

I Am Praying~  Still praying that my college student passes all of his final exams.  He took the hard math final yesterday and hasn't heard the results of it yet.  Hard Chemistry final tomorrow and a Biology final on Saturday.  Praying for our safety on our 17 hour drive to Missouri for Christmas.  I think the Pennsylvania turnpike can be nasty during bad weather.

From The Leaning Room~  No school again this week.  We've had some fun Home EC lessons instead.  He is very proud that he helps me in the kitchen and is sure to tell Daddy about the things he has "made!"

  I Am Wearing~   Warm clothes.  Jeans a long sleeve purple tee a cream vest and my purple scarf.

I Am Creating~ I am teaching creativity today.  When Sharon arrives we will be making Gingerbread Men.  After those cookies are made, my treats will be ready to pass out. 

From The Kitchen~  Dinner fit for company tonight.  Meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, garlic broccoli, green salad, whole wheat rolls and a TON of leftover treats from our Home EC this week.  No firm plans for the weekend yet.  The bachelors may come over on Sunday afternoon between church services.  My manly man works duty on Saturday.  We are leaving on Monday morning for Missouri.

I Am Enjoying~  Bionic Woman from netflicks.

 My new music.  Cozy candles and the promise of seeing family next week.

I am Sharing~ Not too much to share right now.  I'll come back and add pictures tonight after the company leaves.   I did come across good verses today about one person and his prayer for others.  SWEET!

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,

to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;

that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth,

 and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,

which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly

above all that we ask or think,

according to the power that worketh in us,

Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages,

world without end. Amen.

Ephesians 3: 17-21

One Of My Favorite Things~  Fresh fallen snow that's all sparkly and clean.  The quietness you hear when it snows.    Old movies.  Good home cooking.  Good friends. 

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week~
Packing for a trip.  Planning on taking some matching clothes for family pictures.  Loading the van for the trip.  Enjoying a peaceful weekend.  Looking forward to some fresh popcorn and a movie.  I want to try to find a church with a Christmas Cantata this Sunday morning. 

Have a great weekend dear friends!
