for today... dec.13

outside my window... crisp cool temperatures and wonderful blue skies
i am thinking... only 12 days till christmas.
i am thankful for... good memories and happy moments.
i am wearing... my ever so soft pj's and crocs.
i am remembering... christmases past.
i am going... on my ski trip this coming saturday.
i am currently reading... january's issue of oprah's magazine
i am hoping... for plenty of snow at the ski resort.
on my mind... my family back home in el salvador.
pondering these words... "luck is believing you're lucky" -t. williams-
from the kitchen... coffee... too early for anything else.
around the house... christmas decorations all in place.
one of my favorite things... spending quiet weekends at home.
i'm creating... a list of new word art ideas.
a few plans for the rest of the week... hair cut, finish wrapping christmas presents, get dog food, pack bags, post office...
one picture to share...
