~~It's Thursday!~~

Outside my window...  It's sunny and clear today.  Cold.  We had a dusting of snow last night.  Got the grass white but didn't stick to the roads or sidewalks.  Feels like spring here.  What about at your place?

I am thinking...  I'm always thinking.  Got lots to think about.

I am thankful...Thankful for the grace of God.  I love this quote that April @victoriantomboy posted today . . .
"Only the Gospel can save us from being consumed with having our needs met by people or things of this world. Only the Gospel reminds us that we have all been given mercy and grace we do not deserve. Indeed, it is only when Jesus Christ is the all satisfying enjoyment of our soul that our relationship with others can truly be healthy and satisfying. "  Psalms 107:9   For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness." Psalms 107:9

In the kitchen...  Hawaiian Chicken, Rice A Roni, garlic snow peas, Green Salad, Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

I am wearing... My niece Joy, and I, took our own Glamour shot photos today.  This is what I wore . . .

I am creating...  I am creating lists.  Also thinking about spring cleaning.  I should order picture prints and start working on photo albums and my picture wall.

I am going...  Thinking about going places and seeing people.  I have no special plans.

I am reading/watching...  We started season 2 of the original Bionic Woman.  It's been good. 
I am starting a new book tonight.  I think it's one that I bought at the thrift store.

I am praying...  I am always praying for the desires of my heart.  Praying for my husband to have peace. Praying for my health.   Praying for the Lord to 'prepare' the way for our move. Praying for the sale of our van for no less than $4200.00.   I saw another cute place.  Not sure if it has a garage.

I am looking forward to...   I am looking forward to Sunday morning.  I am taking my niece Joy and #2 son out to brunch to honor Joy's visit.  I can't wait.

From the learning room...  We finished our Washington D.C. reports this week.  That's about all besides music practice.  I'm going to dig into some courses next week too.

Around the house...  #2 son became the great helper this morning when he vacuumed the ENTIRE house for me.  He did the rugs and then used the hose for those pesky dust bunnies.  He had a BLAST!!

One of my favorite things...Thinking about him today. 

It is almost the 23rd anniversary of the day we met. 
((Big Sigh...))

A few plans for the rest of the week:  We sold the tent trailer and the family comes to pick it up Saturday  morning.  Saturday afternoon, probably a meal with bachelor David.  Not sure what else is in the works.

Something to Share... Joy and I spent the WHOLE DAY in the big apple yesterday.  We are exhausted today.  We rode the train/subway, shopped in Time Square, enjoyed the Broadway production of WICKED, had dinner at Olive Garden, and walked, and walked, and walked!

Hopefully back to a regular blog posting schedule next week.

Have a great weekend dear friends.
