For Today -

Outside my window...  it's raining.  It's cold and damp.  Nasty.  But we are warm, cozy and blessed inside.

I am thinking... of all we need to get accomplished in the next 10 days!

I am thankful for... my husband!  The more I pray for him, the more I realized how the Lord created him for me!  I am so blessed!

I am remembering... the wonderful service we had at Mass today!  Again, I am thankful and blessed for my family!

On my mind...  we have lots to prepare, and I need to contact our doctor for prescription refills to last while we are away!

From the kitchen...  all cleaned up.  We are invited to our friend's Christmas family buffet tonight, so I am not cooking!

I am wearing... jeans, a red sweater, and my sneakers.

I am creating... a mess right now!  We are taking down the Christmas decorations.  We bought several new big totes, and we are organizing it better.

I am going... to bed early tonight, I need a nice peaceful night.  I want to spend time with the Lord.

I am reading...my prayer books, and my Bible

I am hoping... we have good weather for our drive to Florida, both down and when come back to Pennsylvania in a few months.

I am hearing... Christmas songs, and my husband bustling about getting the big totes put away.

Around the house... things are getting back to normal, but I miss the Christmas decorations so much!

One of my favorite things... relaxing at home on a rainy day!

A few plans for the rest of the week...  we have to take our car tomorrow morning for a recall appointment, also taking our son's car for oil change, then when we pick up our car, an oil change, we have New Year's Eve party at our nephews, and I will cook for them.  Lots more things to do in this week coming!  Oh, also on New Year's Day family dinner at my sister in law's house!  I am baking for that.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...  one of my favorite ornaments!

Lots to do to prepare for a big trip. I pray you do have good traveling weather. Some of my decorations are down and the rest will follow this week. Have a great day.

It is sad to put away the ornaments. Good that you are doing it in an organized way. Hope all works out well with your car.
