Outside my window... It was a beautiful day to day today. There was a high temperature of 70 degrees. Overnight temperatures have been very cool though.
I am thinking... I'm thinking I need a vacation from December. It has been a busy month. Maybe I'll get to camping in the desert next week with some of my favorite people!
I am thankful... I am thankful I heard from the Cardiology department today. My blood pressure is N*O*R*M*A*L! I'm thanking God!
In the kitchen... Let's see. I haven't eaten at home much this week. We've been really busy running to a fro doing this and that! I pulled a tater tot casserole out of the freezer yesterday for dinner. I smoked a turkey today. I also made macaroni and cheese. I've also got a 'frog eye salad' chillin in the fridge. But we didn't eat all that food yet.
I am wearing... I am wearing my green army pants with a check blouse. My hair is pulled back out of my face. I think my face probably reflects the fact that I am tired.
I am creating... Christmas letter. . .DONE. Christmas cards. . .DONE. Christmas party for 25?. . .on Saturday . . .almost ready. Christmas crafts . . .DONE. Christmas shopping . . .DONE! Christmas treats baking. . .tomorrow it will be done. Christmas decorations . . .DONE.
I am going... Ahh . . .I've no plans to be going anywhere until tomorrow night when my student has his third piano recital. It has a Christmas theme!
I am praying... praying still for my health (to be pain free and shrinking cyst) praying for the safety of my husband, he has been working an awful lot recently. Praying for travel safety to all of you and my married children who will be traveling during the holiday. Praying for answers to prayer. Praying for the desires of my heart. Praying for far away family.
I am reading/watching... I am between books right now. I will pick up a new one tonight. I did find time for a super quick library trip this week and picked up a few cookbooks to browse for fun.
Not sure what it will be like but I have October Baby to watch tomorrow night.
I am looking forward to... I'm looking forward to life slowing down a bit. I need some slowness. Camping and a trip to see my sister are in order!
From the learning rooms... I fear the school room has been silent the last week. I fear we're behind a bit.
Around the house... I've got company coming on Saturday afternoon. I need to vacuum, set up tables, clean toilets, empty trash and dust. I'll be sure to post pictures of everything later!
I am pondering...
A favorite quote for today...
"We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions."
One of my favorite things... I've enjoyed this tea thoroughly this week. So much so, that it is all gone and now have to look for more!
Lipton's Vanilla Caramel Truffle
A few plans for the rest of the week: Breakfast and cookie baking with Tonya and the girls tomorrow. Church family Christmas party on Saturday afternoon. Church on Sunday.
Picture highlights of recent events...
Have a great weekend dear friends!
