I am wearing... Black sweats and a deep pink shirt with an embroidered floral design along the neckline

I am creating... A Christmas gift list

I am reading... "The Skin Map" by Stephen R. Lawhead

I am praying for... Good weather as we travel on the weekend.

Pondering these words... "It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you...." ~Mother Teresa~

I am hoping... The flu shot doesn't set me back.

I am hearing... The air purifier.

Around the house... It finally looks like Christmas.

One of my favorite things... Sunshine and birds singing.

  2. Okay, Alana, I'll be over Wednesday for dinner...or maybe I'll just wait until Saturday and come for the smorg. :) Looks as if you have quite a bit of snow now. We are to have some tonight through Wednesday afternoon. I guess it is that time of the year. :)

    Have a blessed week, Alana!

    1. You are welcome anytime :D Our temps are supposed to warm up this week so the snow may be gone by next week - probably just in time for the next snowfall lol! Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. I enjoyed your post! As a new reader it's fun to learn more about you! I love that you plan out your meals. That's something I just started doing and it makes such a difference. We save money because we don't eat out as much.

    1. I agree! Without planning my meals I would be lost when it came to meal time lol :) Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I so enjoy your blog! Your recipes look great too, and I am going to give some a whirl. Hey...very soon the days will be getting longer again!! What a happy thought! Have a wonderful week!


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!
