Just in the nick of time before it is no longer January.....
Outside my window -
It is cold and grey, very much the theme of January this year. We have had very little frost and no snow at all, so far, perhaps February will bring the white stuff to make the children squeal.
I am thankful for -
My husband and my children and my mother. They are at the center of my life. My faith is that which all else is built upon. I am thankful for The Lord my God, and my Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ.
In the kitchen -
There is nothing much happening at the moment. The cupboards are stocked to the hilt and we have began to build up our FOOD STORAGE after some what depleting it over Christmas (I gave my student son a box home with him), and the lean month of January.
I am wearing -
Dark blue flared jeans, a red tartan dress and a grey cardigan. No jewelry, even my wedding ring is on the bedside table, and my feet are bare because my socks stayed inside my boots when I pulled them off after dropping Oscar off at nursery.
I am creating -
I have just finished printing out Oscar's 5th birthday party invitations ( 5!!! what ???). I am still knitting my shawl and I am hoping to get to my sketchbook at some point today.
I am going -
Into town with friends straight from nursery collection. Oscar is having his Naming and Blessing done in Church on Sunday INFO HERE and I want to buy him a new shirt and tie for the occasion. I expect we will have lunch in a burger place, the children will be pleased.
I am wondering -
If I will find time for a wee nap later on in the day. I have anemia and it is making me very tired.
I am reading -
The Book Of Mormon, The King James Bible, Jesus The Christ, Come Unto Me (a personal study guide)
I am hoping -
That the plans I have been making come to pass (cryptic I know)
I am looking forward to -
Sunday for Oscars Blessing, Oscars Birthday, Valentines night dinner with my Sweetheart
I am learning -
We often pray for more patience but want our prayer answered right away
Around the house -
The cats are snoozing, Aimee is in her room, the heating needs to go on because its getting cold, and I need to crack on with the laundry
I am pondering -
Our family scripture lesson for tonight (we were all once spirit children of our Heavenly Father)
A favorite quote for today -
" The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity". –Emelia Earhart
One of my favorite things -
Scones and jam (which I intend to have with some herbal tea, right after I do this)
A few plans for the rest of the week -
To sort out Oscars bedroom, have dinner with the missionaries on Saturday, Oscar's blessing on Sunday, visit my Mum and start knitting a vest for Oscar for his birthday (I have just ordered turquoise yarn).
