  Well it has been a while, but here I am again. After a roller coaster ride these past couple of months, we are still standing thanks to GOD and his never ending Grace.


Outside my window...
A dull almost winter day... But good news No snow or ice on the ground so I will take it.

I am thinking...about my good friend Gyda and praying for her and her family's peace and comfort today as the beginning of her Mother's Funeral begins today at 2 PM. We will be visiting the funeral home tonight and attending the funeral tomorrow. My heart breaks for her as the loss of a mother is so great and a week before Christmas just adds to that grief. She would have been 88 on New Year's Day in a couple weeks. May she have comfort in the arms of Jesus now and suffer no longer.

I am thankful...for my Family and that everyone is "healthy" and home for the holidays.

From the learning rooms...(if this applies)Christmas Break is happening around here, but you can check out all of my TOS Crew Reviews to see what we have been up to as of late.

In the kitchen...
My hubby is making homemade waffles with strawberries and whip cream. YUMMY

I am wearing...My Capri PJ bottoms and the matching cantelope colored pocket T

I am creating...My new bedroom it is almost complete but there are a few finishing touches needing to be done thanks to Pinterest, Got to love that site.

I am going...to the funeral home and funeral over the next two days.

I am wondering...when we are going to put our tree up, we are very late in putting it up this year, because of the garage fire we have lost all of our christmas decorations and  it just is not the same this year when it comes to getting into the spirit of decorating. we have been blessed by wonderful friends donating ornaments and lights and such to help get us into the holiday spirit and my good friend Robyn also gave us stockings for the boys. I am determined to get into the Holiday Spirit this week no matter what.

I am reading...The Grace Effect

I am hoping...that we all fine peace to ending this year of 2011 and going into 2012 we all have a much calmer year.

I am looking forward to...Celebrating Christmas with my family and Celebrating The New Year with good friends and family this year.

I am hearing...the TV playing  a Christmas movie, hoping it will spark me to get in the mood to decorate.

Around the house...It doesn't really look like Christmas and the Living room looks bear since we moved upstairs I took the book case and my huge desk up with us and that leaves the living room a little sparse. I look forward to redecorating in February with our new much needed larger couch.

I am pondering...
what to make for a small token for all of the girls at Bunco next month

One of my favorite things...Is listening to the kids laugh at each others jokes

A few plans for the rest of the week:Decorating, Decorating, Decorating, do you sense a theme here?

Here is picture for thought I am sharing... My new Room almost done.
