FOR TODAY ~ December 1, 2014

Outside my window... its still a little dark out. The snow is gone...for now anyways!

I am thinking... that I am going to re-do the Duck Dynasty hat, as I am not real happy with the final outcome of it from last night

I am thankful... for the long weekend I had with my hubby for the holiday.

In the kitchen... I am going to be making some banana muffins.... for dinner spaghetti and garlic bread

I am wearing... blue yoga pants, a tshirt and sweatshirt

I am creating... well re-doing the Duck Dynasty hat

I am going... to be meeting up with a friend today to deliver another hat I made

I am wondering... how everything is going to come together for Christmas

I am reading... nothing right now

I am hoping... that we get a call today saying Trent's car is finished early!

I am looking forward to... the potential vacation my hubby may during Christmas.

I am learning... that the TV is starting to consume way too much of my time.

Around the house... I have all of my Monday chores to start tackling, and that the bathroom really needs my attention this week.... oh the joy of life with boys

I am pondering... where we should we should go for a winter vacation

A favorite quote for today... I'm thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn't have stumbled across my strength. author Alex Elle

One of my favorite things... Thanksgiving leftovers.... I will be using up the rest of the turkey for sandwiches today.

A few plans for the rest of the week: shopping with a friend, putting up the Christmas tree

A peek into my day... she wants me to cuddle, who am I to tell her no!?!?!

  1. Your cat is so cute! Make me miss our cats. Have a great week!

  2. Jodi - so much of our day is similar! I am also having spaghetti and garlic bread for dinner! And, my computer is consuming me...blogging, facebook, writing, reading, e-mail, etc. etc. And, my cat has also been wanting to get up in my face - well, around the computer where I am working. If I stop and go watch TV - she will be there; but I too have some laundry and cleaning to's almost noon and I am still at the computer to get my writing done!!! Looking forward to reading other posts!

  3. I don't blame you wanting to cuddle with that adorable kitty!

  4. The computer is what consumes my time the most, I need to change that! Your cat is so cute! We have a dog, but would dearly love a cat, my husband and grandbaby are so allergic to them though. Have a great week!

  5. Jodi, I love the quote you've shared today. Isn't it just so true...if we don't have struggles we truly never learn our strengths! Your kitty is adorable...yes, I agree...snuggle you must! Have a great week!


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you liked your visit! Be blessed!
