FOR TODAY, December 16, 2014
Outside my window ...
It's ten to seven and black dark and cold. Only 9 days left until Christmas . . . and fifteen until the end of 2014. This year has just sped by.
I am thinking ...
About the goings-on in Sydney, Australia yesterday. I am grateful that more people were not hurt. I am amazed however that a man facing so many criminal charges of a sexual nature was walking free on bail. The mind boggles. Is this just the tip of the iceberg?
I am thankful ...
That I am a follower of Jesus Christ, and that my God is a loving, kind and just God.
In the Kitchen ...
Artichoke and Spinach Lasagne. Very, very good.
On my "to cook" list ...
Nutter Butters from Sweet Boake Baking Blog. These look scrumptious!
I am creating ...
I have been working hard on my portfolio for the liscensing company. Lots of pencil sketches done now waiting to be coloured in. I love the quietness in my craft room. Just me and my music and my pencils and colours. I am happiest there. I never know what is going to come out. Stuff just arrives, springing from the ends of my fingertips.
What an unusual doll. I love it all. The buttons, the patchwork base, the clay head and arms. Found on Flickr.
It's kissing Clothespins! I love it! It's so cute. Found on Lilyshop.
So delicate and pretty. I think she is just beautiful. Source. There are a ton of ideas on this page.
I love LOVE all of these, from A Field Journal.
I am going ...
Visit Teaching on Friday, London on Thursday (keep your fingers crossed I do well!) The Christmas Truce on Sunday evening. This is a special presentation being given at chapels all over the UK this Christmas. You can read more about it here. If you are interested in attending ours, it will be held at the chapel in St Davids Park, Ewloe, Flintshire, Wales this coming Sunday evening at 7:00 PM. It's going to be really special. Here is the post code CH5 3YF All are welcome.
I am reading ...
The scriptures at the moment and this months' Ensign magazine. Feeling a need to feel closer to my Heavenly Father. Mind you I read the scriptures all the time. I have asked Santa Claus for a set of journaling scriptures.
So I can do this. These are Karla Dornacher's. What a beautiful legacy.
Still looking for a cracking read for the new year. Any suggestions?
I am hoping ...
That I do well on Thursday. My son said to just be myself. I have gotten a black top and a colourful scarf to hide my body and disguise my turkey neck.
Makes me smile ...
I know you are smiling too.
I am learning ...
Let it go . . . let it go . . . be one with the wind and snow . . .
Around the house ...
I adore this sewing station.
This vintage look bathroom also tweaks my desire. I love anything old.
Pretty AND organized. I love it!
I am pondering ...
Wondering what the year 2015 holds for us all . . . good things I hope!!
A favourite quote for the day ...
It comes every year and will go on forever. And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes and the customs. Those humble, everyday things a mother clings to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces of her heart.” ~ Marjorie Holmes, American writer.
One of my favourite things ...
Vintage Pot Holders. I have a few. They never get used. They are treasures.
A peek into my day ...
I practice my penmanship every day. I do. It's helping a lot. My writing is getting less sloppy. I think because we mostly type these days on the computer, etc., and rarely write a letter, etc. our penmanship ability and skill is going down the tubes.
And that's my day book for this week!
