From Mama Bear's Journal
FOR TODAY...Wednesday, November 14, 2012
Outside my window..34°F,1°C.,mostly sunny and expected to reach 55...the leaves are falling fast from our Maple tree...it has been a beautiful Fall....not much bird activity at the moment..
I am thinking...the holidays are approaching much to fast...
I am thankful...God paints our world in such beautiful colors for our enjoyment......for Honey Bear and our relationship.....for our health.....for the blessings of friends...the increase in SS
From the kitchen...cinnamon raisin toast and coffee
I am wearing...pajamas and a warm winter robe
I am creating...1.5x14 inch strips for a fabric wreath workshop tomorrow....quilting for "My Favorite Things" quilt...
I am going...to pick up the Princess after school
One year ago today...On November 22: the temperatures in the morning were warmer and the highs were also warmer......there was a threat of severe weather and the schools were dismissing at 11:30...I had lowered my cholesterol 37 points by exercise and diet(probably back up by now)...there was leftover potato soup in the fridge...I was working on the first section of "My Favorite Things"....putting puzzle together.....reading The Wedding Quilt...Honey Bear had just retired from his 'big' job and was getting ready to take state boards as a CNA...
I am wondering...if I can finish this, get dressed for the day and vacuum the floor before my 10:00 meeting
These days I'm reading...This Green Hell by Greg Beck....just finished The Giving Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini.....next on my list is a re-read of Shepherds Abiding by Jan Karon for December Book Club and the third Book in the Inn Boonsboro series by Nora Roberts
I am praying...for Rick...Destiny....Jordan....John.....Karlene
I remember when...my sister and I used to get together and wrap gifts for Christmas
I am looking forward to...having clean carpet....need to schedule a cleaning.....
A verse for today..."If God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." —1 John 4:11
I am hearing...the furnace just clicked on...
Around the house...its quiet and peaceful and relatively clean
Song that stays on my Mind...Zac Brown Band's Highway 20 Ride
A favorite quote for today..."When life gives you lemons, Make lemonade"
One of my favorite things...buying gifts for other people
A few plans for the rest of the week:working on year-end paper work for the club....wreath workshop tomorrow....lunch with Daughter......meeting with Karlene....quilting.....quality time with Honey Bear
From my photo file....
This Maple is in the corner of a friend's yard where Book Club was held last Friday....I made the photo with my phone.

....just busy right now....I've been out and about tending to obligations and errands....catching up on laundry and quilting when I have a spare minute or two...so not much blogging.....stopping by to read your posts whenever I can....We're having such a beautiful Fall.

Good Friday Morning, all you beautiful bears and people
How was your Halloween?
We had 7 little people come to the door
to get Mama 's goodies
Some of us went to Pea's Halloween Bash
here is Mama in
the costume Pea chose for her
I think she's a dragon....
Mama and Papa Bear went to the mountains
for a few days and
left all of us Bears
here with Smokey
He was not a happy cat
as he prowled around
making the most awful
She said to tell you, she'll hopefully
be back to blogging again soon...
however, that MY FAVORITE THINGS
quilt is on the sewing machine table
and it has top priority
for the next few days.....
