For Today... March 16, 2015Outside my window...  the sun has set and the clouds were gray with an edge of red.  There is a little rain on the windows that is sparkling in the streetlight.I am thinking... of our St. Patrick's day table at bible study tomorrow.  Went to a friend's store and she set me up with a green table cloth, plates, napkins and many die-cut shamrocks.  Fun, fun!I am thankful... for spring weather this early in the year!  Our snow has all melted and the grass is green-ish already.I am wearing... blue jeans, black tank top and a raspberry colored cardigan with dangly earrings and socks on my feet.I am creating... an organized bookshelf.  Going through all my books and sorting them by subject and author.  I am a book nerd.  :)I am going... to a lot of social engagements this week.  I used to pray for a few good friends to be able to chat with.  God has certainly blessed me in this.I am wondering... What am I wondering?  Will the nice weather continue?  Who sin…
