Non-Monday Musings

I have been thinking of blogging again. I cannot believe it has been almost six months since I posted! Time does fly when you are busy living, doesn't it? :)

Non-Monday Musings...

What I'm thinking: I am very grateful for the kindness and love of friends. This life wouldn't be half of what it is without them. To those friends that read this - you are loved. Thanks for being who you are in my life! I am grateful to God for you--each and every one.

What I'm reading: Le Mort d'Arthur, Volume 2 on my Kindle App. It is a very odd book. LOL I am also reading my beautiful hardback 50th anniversary edition of The Lord of the Rings to the children. I can't tell you how fun it is to share this book with them. :)

What I'm listening to: My children playing a computer game. :)

What we're learning: We are studying the Civil War at the moment and watching the Ken Burns documentary about it. What a heartbreaking terrible war. There is nothing to compare with the losses felt in that generation.

What I'm watching: We are watching a new-to-us series, Merlin, as well as a show that is brand new to us, Person of Interest.

What's cooking: Cranberry and orange bread today. I also need to make some whole wheat bread too.

What I'm buying: I can't say or it will spoil Christmas! :D

What I'm thankful for: I am thankful for many things, but today I am especially thankful for my children. They are a great blessing from the Lord and I am so very grateful.

What I'm creating: Hmmmm...do I have to be creative today? ;) Does cranberry bread count?

What I'm praying: That God would be glorified in all I do; that He would direct, guide, and bless some friends of mine in their business; and for the healing and peace of another friend struggling with cancer.

What I'm planning: To visit my mother, aunt, and grandmother this weekend, baring illness. :)

What I'm looking forward to: Christmas!

A picture to share:

I am posting an updated picture of our lionhead bunny that I affectionately call Non-Rosie. He is not a she, but since we discovered that later rather than sooner, I have a hard time calling him by his new name, Cottontail. Poor Non-Rosie. He will always have trouble with who he is. ;)
