I am creating... This week my goals are:-

I am reading... God Has A Dream for Your Life by Sheila Walsh

I am praying for... Good health.

Pondering these words...
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Mother Teresa
I am still hoping... To finish some projects before Christmas.

I am hearing... The radio playing.

Around the house... Mess before beauty - Christmas decorating is in progress.

One of my favorite things... Christmas music.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I am joining...
Peggy at The Simple Woman's Daybook


  1. I really enjoy the Simple Woman's Daybook. I learn so much about my fellow bloggers. I haven't participated in a long time. I may have to try to get back to the Daybook in the new year. You are busy. I'm doing some decorating, too. I seem rushed this year ... perhaps because Thanksgiving is *late* ???!!!! Happy Happy!

  2. Hopefully you will soon be feeling better and able to get the work finished that you feel needs done before the holidays. The Spicy Beef and Vegetable Stir-fry sounds SO yummy! I know you are getting excited thinking about your daughter being home before much longer! I still remember how that felt! Have a wonderful week...and congratulations to your in-law's on their 50th wedding anniversary.


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
