For today...

FOR TODAY... nov 15, 2020

outside my window... bright sunshine and cooler temperatures!  i'm happy!
i am thinking... i've done a lot of blog hopping this week.
i am thankful for... across the miles friends.
I am wearing... an extra lb. from all i ate yesterday!!
I am going to... get ideas for the Christmas tree.
i am currently reading...  re-reading 'dragonfly in amber' by diana gabaldon
i am hoping... my mom gets to visit me this month.
on my mind... the holidays.
noticing that... life is so much sweeter when you take time to stop and smell the roses!
pondering these words... ' when i am anxious it is because i am living in the future. when i am depressed it is because i am living in the past. -unknown-
from the kitchen... a big, big mug of hot vanilla coffee and a toasted english muffin with raspberry jam.
around the house... after any weekend some serious cleaning is in order.
one of my favorite things... jokes among friends that have lasted for years!
a few plans for the rest of the week... plant the new pansies, grocery shopping, exercise ...and scrap of course!
one picture to share...
