Outside my window . . . after a sunny morning, the wind is blowing colder air into our area along with a forecast of flurries and lower temperatures for the rest of the week - I guess winter is coming after all
I am thinking . . . how pleasant it is to have a day at home to cook, bake and sew
I am thankful for . . . phone calls and emails from our children - I am so blessed to hear from them regularly and be updated on their lives
From the kitchen . . . a productive afternoon resulted in Creamy Lentil Soup and Blomidon Inn Brown Bread (thanks, Mel) for supper, Texas-Style Skillet for later in the week, and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies and Poppycock tucked away for the weekend
I am wearing . . . black jeans, yellow polo shirt, winter sweatshirt and slippers - had to add an extra layer this week :))
I am reading . . . The Power of Simple Prayer by Joyce Meyers
I am hoping . . . that the gifts I ordered online this weekend will come quickly - can't wait to see them :))
I am hearing . . . Amy Grant singing "A Christmas to Remember"
Around the house . . . Advent wreath on the table, Christmas quilt hanging in the living room, some cookie tins waiting to be filled and the last lonely pumpkin waiting for attention
One of my favourite things . . . fresh bread with butter melting on it!
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . bake gingersnap and shortbread cookies, playdate with Meadow, a day of subbing for my friend, and lots of sewing
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . . .
Now that December is officially here, I decided the last of the pumpkins better disappear! I got 10 cups of cooked pumpkin - equal to 5 cans @ $1.99 = $10.00 saved - gotta love that!
