I am thinking...about how nice this past week has been. Cold, crisp, clear weather, love was in the air in Utah and no snow to traverse. But it looked a little strange with the dormant grass and no snow~it is time and the locals are ready.
I am thankful for....my husband and the wonderful father and grandfather he is. I can promise you that they all rejoice to see him coming. You wouldn't believe all the work he did this week for and with the kids.
From the learning room..that grandchildren are the Lord's compensation for our growing older.
I am reading... the stack of unfinished books on the window seat in our family room.
From the kitchen...Jim's lunch for tomorrow is already made which means getting up at 4:00 am will be less painful.
I am wondering...what it will be like to not have to get up at 4:00 AM someday.
I am wearing...jeans, a red shirt and a red fleece jacket and socks and crocs. Not much of a fashion plate, especially by day's end.
I am hearing...Ray Charles singing some Christmas Songs.
I am creating...nothing right now but this Daybook entry but I did make a fun wreath for Jen and her family this morning at her request. Check it out below.
I am going...to go a new washing machine tomorrow morning. Joy!
I am quoting...God the Father.."This is my beloved son in whom I am well-pleased. " May we all be more like him.
My spiritual thoughts include...thoughts of Christmas and the lesson I am working on for Sunday.
Around the house...All the travel stuff is put away and tomorrow the heater is going in. Yippee!
I am hoping...we can be completely ready to go to Italy in 12 days.
I have been procrastinating..getting my Christmas card blog finished.
One of my guilty pleasures...black licorice.
One of my favorite things..when a grandbaby is old enough to remember us between visits. That little face lighting up and giving you a big smile and holding their arms up for you to pick them up is amazing.
A few plans for the rest of the week...prepare lesson for Sunday, buy a few groceries, set up visiting teaching appointments, RS Christmas dinner on Wednesday, sending Jim off the Scout camp for an overnighter, getting the heater and washing machine up and running...finding something fun to do on Saturday with a friend. Checking travel things off my list one by one.
Here is a picture and thought I am sharing with you...
