for today... 

outside my window... overcast skies but wonderful cool temperatures.
i am thinking... thanksgiving.
i am thankful for... having my mom here for a few days.
I am wearing... jeans, black long sleeve t-shirt & red all stars.
i am remembering... to take camera with me at all times - keep missing great shots!
I am going... to go and spend thanksgiving weekend in orlando.
i am currently reading... still on 'dragonfly in amber' by diana gabaldon.
i am hoping... to have a fabulous time at my sister's.
on my mind... so many things to do from now until christmas.
noticing that... change is most definitively the only certain thing in life.
pondering these words... the ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. - h. hofmann-
from the kitchen... scrambled eggs with goat cheese and shallots over a thick slice of bread.
around the house... the smell of christmas from some decorative fragrance potpourri.
one of my favorite things... special dates and get togethers.
i'm creating... new layouts - no restrictions.
a few plans for the rest of the week... buy presents for my sister and her family in orlando, wrap gifts, pack my bags and leave thing tidy here at home.
one picture to share...

love my pink all-stars

my pages from last week:

i am super busy running around trying to accomplish a bunch of things before my weekend  trip to orlando but also enjoying having my mom here for a visit. 
some changes also going on in my life right now regarding scrapping duties but feeling relaxed after having struggled with the decision for a while. 
hope you all have a very wonderful thanksgiving holiday!
stay safe.


  1. Hey You! You do realise that all your loyal Blog readers are now thinking "changes in your scrapping life" that can only mean one thing ... DESIGNING!!! Well, I'm not going to fall in line with all those other thinkers. Oh no! Instead, I'm going to say that I LOVE all you pages this week (and every other week for that matter!). I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving break and enjoy your time in Orlando! Oh and as for the weather, do you think you could send a little of the sunshine (albeit cool) my way? It's currently pouring with rain here & shows no sign of stopping!!! Have a great week my friend! Hugs, Sue
