Outside my window...Its 15 °F but the sun is shinning...there is lots of bird activity around the feeder..I see Doves, Finches, the Hairy Woodpecker, Cardinals, and Blue Jays.
Hearing...the ticking clock and the laptop fan
I am thinking...mostly about the need to lose weight...How did I let myself gain so much before doing something about it.
Feeling thankful for...a warm house...a comfy bed...a good companion...being healthy
I am remembering...how Smokey slept beside me last night and each time I woke up there he was
Creating this...pretty Christmas packages....cookies: I have three different ones I want to bake
I am currently reading...True Blue by David Baldacci
One year ago today...It was 58 degrees when I wrote my day book...Cee Kay, Aunt Pauline,Sarah & Bo, Genece, and Shorty Bear were on my prayer list...Honey Bear had taken another Monday off and we were finishing up preparations for Christmas
I am hoping...for nice weather for the next two weeks, no ice
On my mind...getting this posted
Noticing that...I don't want to do much when it is this cold
Pondering these words..."How did it get so late, so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late, so soon?" Doctor Seuss
From the kitchen...Lots more baking to do
Around the house...I've wrapped a few more gifts and tidied some in the studio..began on some more scrapbook pages
I am praying for...Honey Bear to get over his cold...that he is getting some rest this week...
A few plans for the week...I have to buy some groceries Thursday or Friday...baking cookies...finishing decorating...planning for Open House...Cookie Swap on Friday...Hopefully it will warm up so I can put the lights on the bushes...maybe attend another church Christmas program
One of my favorite things...taking an afternoon nap
From my picture file...The Princess and myself


  1. It's 10F here right now and the wind is making it even more bitterly cold...as you say, one doesn't feel like doing much when it's that cold! It sounds like you're well on your way to being ready for Christmas:-) I have to make two batches of fudge to bring to my boys when we go visit them this coming weekend, as well as prepare containers full of cookies and chocolates for them. Tomorrow I'm bringing mom shopping and I'm hoping to finish my Christmas shopping. Then I'll be able to say that I'm completely ready! Love that picture of you and the Princess:-) xoxo

  2. A delight to meet you !

    Wanna do something spunky and eternal for Christmas? Then you're invited to a water buffalo party. No formal attire required. Just come and visit as we splash a family in India ...



  3. What a great picture. Nice to meet you that way. Hugs

  4. I'm thankful for a warm house and a comfy bed, too...especially on these cold days!

  5. glad to know more about you this way.
