Outside my window... Outside my window, a good batch of rain came through last night. It's gray and cloudy outside. It will be getting colder with a chance of snow tomorrow.
I am thinking... I am still thinking about the same things as last week. I am excited to move. I love looking at Craigslist for houses. I love day-dreaming about decorating.
(my husband likes this quilt. I'd make a lime-green bed skirt.)
( I love the fushia colors in this one)
I think we are going next Wednesday to look at this truck in Hartford, Connecticut.)
I am thankful... I am thankful the Lord continues to show his TOUCH on our lives. My husband communicated with his new boss in San Diego this week. The boss asked "How soon can you get here?" He discussed a bit about what my husbands job will be a type of Customs, Border Patrol, and Maritime Enforcement. My husband is very excited. The job will be busy and exciting for him. We are still waiting for decisions to be made by my husbands current boss as to who his replacement will be.
From the Leaning Room . . .We are only doing piano practice and quizzes on spelling words. Next week will be much the same. . .
In the kitchen... Smoked Turkey Sandwiches, maybe. I'm taking a bit of a break today.
I am wearing...It's almost 11 and I am still in my robe. I'm taking it easy. I may take a bath later and put on clean pajama's.
I am creating... Lists. . . I actually started a oraganizing cleaning list that I will type and post on my fridge later. It is a cleaning/organizing list to get ready for the move.

I bought several books at the thrift store the other day. Haven't started them yet.
Dee Henderson is okay. . .she writes more like Harlequin Romance. But they are an entertaining read.
I am reading this book about a middle aged, divorced, matronly lady who stumbles into murder mysteries.
Crusoe, based on the book, Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. Such a good action adventure story. We are looking forward to the next episode!
I found a game that makes me feel extremely stupid. I bought it from the thrift store for $2.95. It's been very educational for ME!
((""Huggermugger" is a trivia-type game with an emphasis upon english vocabulary. Players move their pieces around the board and answer questions about spelling or word definitions. Certain places on the board allow players to uncover one of the letters in the "mystery word." Determine the "mystery word" to win the game."))
I am praying... I am still praying for the Lord to prepare the way for our move. HE is so good to give us little glimses of HIS goodness in doing that for us! Praying for our far away family. For health and safety and the Lord's blessing on them!
Around the house... I've got a load of towels in the dryer. Banjo's towels are in the washer. I've got to strip out the guest bed and wash sheets for my next guest, my niece, Joy.
One of my favorite things... I love cheese flavored popcorn.
My #2 son associates cheese popcorn with staying in hotels. He gets confused if I purchase some to bring HOME!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
House vacuuming, toilet cleaning, bed making, menu planning, grocery shopping, Bachelor David Sunday afternoon.
Something to Share. . . I am sharing our pictures of our few days with cousin Chantel. She was a great guest, a pleasure to have in our home.
