FOR TODAY December 3, 2013

Outside my window...
powdered sugar dusting of snow on the ground with gray skies and a mix of snow and rain still falling.

I am thinking... of the weather outside, decorating for Christmas and of my busy Friday.

I am thankful... for those who challenge my beliefs.

In the kitchen... chicken thawing for chili, frozen pizza for dinner tonight and no leftover turkey.

I am wearing... blue yoga pants with a black top.  Guess you could say I'm black and blue from head to toe.

I am creating... a wish list of books for my library, a list of potential projects to make for Christmas presents and a list of things to bring to our first Christmas celebration of 2013.

I am going... to put up the Christmas tree today.  Hopefully I'll get the lights on so we can decorate it as a family tonight.

I am wondering... what to do for a Christmas card this year.  I am way behind in this and feeling a bit of pressure to get it done so I can send them out on time.

I am reading... about Henry VIII.  He had a fascinating childhood.  So much responsibility before he was ten. 

I am hoping... we won't freeze while nature journaling on Friday.  The high for the day is forecast to be 10 degrees Fahrenheit.  Brrrr!

I am looking forward to... having the house decorated, getting my work done and sitting next to the fire relaxing with my honey.

I am learning... how to use my new photo editing software.  Now if I can just find time to play with a few photos, the knowledge might actually stick.

Around the house... the dog is napping, the birds are chirping and the kids are playing well together.

I am pondering... the difficult task of parenting.

A favorite quote for today... "Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light." ~ Helen Keller

One of my favorite things... dangling earrings.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Awana, salon appointment, Royal Rangers, swimming, nature journaling class, co-op, nature journaling adventure, a hayride and a friends birthday celebration.

A peek into my day...
My newest niece.  What a cutie.
