For today...

Outside my window ~ is the dawn of a new day

I am thinking ~ about a phone call I received today
from an old friend announcing that she is getting married

I am thankful for ~ the love of my family,
my mother (today is her birthday in fact)

From the kitchen ~ chicken breasts & veggies

I am wearing ~ a joyous smile on my face

I am reading ~ several gardening books,
Genesis, a few decorating magazines

I am hoping ~ that my new eyeglasses come in
this week (yes, I am one of those that don't like waiting.)

I am creating ~ a vast collection of music downloads
for my MP3 player to listen to while I clean house.

I am hearing ~ the meow of one of our
well privileged cats

Around the house ~ love is in the air

One of my favorite things ~are the
new lamps we bought this weekend for the
family room & dining room buffet

A few plans for the rest of the week ~
volunteering at our local blood drive
(what better way to celebrate Valentine's than with the
gift of blood)
, helping my dear husband cater
the Valentine banquet at our Church,
sharing Valentine's day with my dear husband.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you

Oh how I would dearly love to visit the beautiful
country of Italy & see my husband's family that still
live there. One day we will ~ I am not giving up hope!

This is the first time I have visited your blog. I found your name though the blog Forever Student. Anyway, I liked the picture of Italy. It looked very pleasant and calm. You also sound as if you have the sweet spirit of the Lord permeating from you lips (smiles). I hope to visit your blog again soon in the future. Have a good day and my God continue to bless you and your family.

Love the Valentine template, so pretty.

I have been to Venice, Italy and those cute little gondolas are great. Maybe one day you'll be able to go.

Have a great week!
