For today... Sunday, November 23, 2014

Outside my window... Grey clouds are covering the sky and it is cool and windy.

I am thinking... Of how tired I am and wondering if I am fighting a cold as hubby has a cold.

I am thankful for... Cozy blankets.

I am creating... Albums

I am reading... "Return to Me" by Lynn Austin

I am praying for... My brother-in-law who has a meeting with his former employer tomorrow.

Pondering these words... Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs.  Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger.  If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.  ~Dale Carnegie~

I am hoping... For more energy.

I am hearing... The air purifier & the dishwasher.

Around the house... Still lots to do to get ready for Christmas.

One of my favorite things... Holidays.
