Currently reading::::


I haven't had much time to read this past week.  I've been busy trying to adjust to a new schedule and have been so tired come bedtime, that I don't even need to read to relax.  I climb in bed and am out like a light!

I've barley got started on "For Love of Eli" but have really enjoyed the Quilts of Love series in the past.
On the TV::::

BBC's Sherlock Holmes
Safe Haven
No Reservations

Listening to:

I was so excited to see Lanco's album at Wal-Mart when I was there a few days ago.  I absolutely love "Greatest Love Story" and couldn't wait to hear the rest of the CD!  This is one of my favorites from the CD.
On the menu this week::::

Monday - BBQ Ribs, Mac-N-Cheese, peas, pears
Tuesday - Ham Bundles, corn, peaches
Wednesday - Chicken, Alfredo Noodles, broccoli, oranges
Thursday - Kielbasa, Cheesy Potatoes, green beans, apples
Friday -  Pizza
Saturday - Breakfast
Sunday - Dinner at Church

What I am creating at the moment::::

This is the first block of the Moogly CAL 2018.

It is called Flower Burst by Jessie at Home.  The pattern was great to read and make!

Picture From the Camera


I thought I'd show you my little blogging area of the Family Room.  The desk was my MIL's that I inherited when she passed away so it is special to me.  Behind my laptop is one of our wedding announcements that my aunt framed as a gift for our wedding nearly 18 years ago.  (How can it be that long ago???)  The rest is my just my "stuff".

Bible Verse/Devotional
