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 travelling weather

Pondering these words... He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.  ~Roy L. Smith~

I am still hoping... For a bit warmer weather.

I am hearing... Christmas music, the wind whistling around the house, the furnace running.

Around the house... Enjoying time with my daughter.

One of my favorite things... Having our family all together.

A few plans for the rest of the week...

  1. Hi, Alana, your snow looks lovely! It doesn't look like we will have snow before Christmas. I am glad your daughter got to come home. Sounds like you have a wonderful week ahead of you, and your meals sound delicious.

    Have a wonderful Sunday.



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!
