for today...nov 30! can you believe it?

outside my window... gorgeous afternoon with comfortable weather.
i am thinking... christmas.
i am thankful for... things that make me laugh out loud.
i am wearing... jeans, white t-shirt and red all stars.
i am remembering... the long talks with my sister.
i am going... to catch up on my christmas shopping this week.
i am currently reading... re-reading 'dragonfly in amber' by d.gabaldon.
i am hoping... to finish some small remodeling project to my breakfast nook.
on my mind... christmas songs.
noticing that... it is going to be a busier week of what i had thought.
pondering these words... 'let what you love, be what you do' rumi
from the kitchen... chicken tacos for dinner tonight!
around the house... christmas ornaments still in boxes.
one of my favorite things... a quiet house and some creative time.
i'm creating... photo albums.
a few plans for the rest of the week... scrap, put up christmas tree, movie on friday, shopping and more shopping.
one picture to share...

hi everyone!
 i couldn't make here on monday but did not want the week to go by without a new post.
i had the most wonderful time visiting my sister and getting to spend time with my mom. 
we had a traditional thanksgiving dinner but with the turkey prepared in salvadoran style. the salvadoran version of roast turkey has a wide variety of spices, tomatoes, prunes and raisins that are roasted along with the turkey in the roasting pan. this tasty mixture is then simmered and served as a rich sauce to accompany the turkey. yum!
 and yes, we had plenty of leftovers which we ate as turkey sandwiches with some sauce poured over them.

 hope you had a great thanksgiving holiday and are having a great start of the holiday season. 
christmas isn't very far away and therefore i got a lot of things to be done.
i didn't have time to scrap while away but i did managed to create a freebie! hope you enjoy it.
