Outside my window... It's cold. I'm sitting here at the desk, just beginning this post, I'm already half frozen. It's cold. Around town some of the lakes are starting to freeze as are the puddles at the sides of the roads.
I am thinking... I am thinking and dreaming about being back in California. You'll get tired of me saying that in the next few months. I've got to make a list of projects to complete. I've got two rounds of Girls coming to visit this month. I need to ready #2 son's bedroom as the guest room.
I am thankful... I am thankful for God's word. I know I've said it before, but God's word is an amazing ALIVE book. So much wisdom. So Comforting. I am amazed that can find so many verses to fit my mood, thought or action.
From the learning rooms... No school this week. we are enjoying our break. We'll resume a full week of classes Monday.
In the kitchen... Buckwheat waffles and pepper bacon for breakfast. Chili baked potato for a late lunch. If hunger strikes later. . .green salad.
Tomorrow- Daddy works the late shift. Momma treats us Chinese food take out!!
(Spicy General Tso's Chicken)
Saturday- Homemade Vegetable Beef Soup and dinner rolls
Sunday- Macaroni and Cheese with Tereaki Beef Short Ribs, Garlic Broccoli
I am wearing... Jeans, White tank, with lilac cardigan on top. Hair fixed, make-up applied.
(my outfit today is very similar to the one pictured here (Feb 24, 2011))
I am creating... Tomorrow, with the help of my manly man, I'll get a couple things down from the attic and clean up #2 son's room for those girly guests.
(It will look similar to this. This is when I fixed it up for my Momma!)
I am reading/watching... We went to the library this morning so I have a new stack of books. I think I'll be reading two Clive Cussler books. I love that author!
I found a new cookbook to browse . . .

I am praying... I am praying that the Lord would continue to answer the desires of my heart. That HE would be preparing the way for our move. That HE would give us a perfect little place in the country. For health. For safety. For my husband. For my children. For far away family.
I am hearing... Wind chimes are blowing. The space heater is running. I have my new David Nevue c.d. playing here in the computer. It is so soothing.
A Delicate Joy
Around the house... My Christmas decorations are still up. I love the lights. I missed the sweet smell of fresh cut greens this year. I am smelling Cinnamon and vanilla from several candles that are burning around the house.
One of my favorite things... California!
A few plans for the rest of the week: Room cleaning tomorrow. Bachelor David Saturday. I'll take him to get his groceries and then he'll come over to spend the afternoon/evening with us. We'll eat soup, and watch a video.
Something to share... Tennessee Vacation Pictures
These are NOT Tenneesee Vacation pictures. Anastasia and I are posing for the camera!
I fixed her hair!
Cousin Mark and Terry with my Sully.
I'm sorry Aunt Gail, but this just cracks me up!!
Uncle Lawrence, Aunt Gail, Terry, Mark, Sully and Me.
That's All!! Have a Blessed New Year! May all your prayers come true in 2012
