Outside my window... soft looking November sky

I am thinking... how grateful I am that my father had a wonderful turnout of friends for his 90th birthday celebration.

I am thankful for... a hubby who took care of me during a two week respiratory virus -- He did his own work and some of mine, too, as I could not do much at all.

I went... to take my dad to the dermatologist today. My poor dad has been battling the effect of sun damage on his skin for forty years now. If you are fair-skinned, wear your sunscreen! Even if you aren't, wear your sunscreen!!

I am reading... My Bucket of Sand by Sheila Jones

I am hoping... to catch up on some cleaning after being sick; am grateful did get bottom of pantry swept out and neatened, as well as a load of clothing

On my mind...
What I read the other day in Romans about the downward spiral of sin and pain that begins with not honoring God as God or expressing gratitude; thinking what a great month this is to enjoy the upward cycle of praising and thanking God -- good time to develop deeper habits of praise and thanksgiving.

One of my favorite things...curling up in a warm bed on a misty night and reading a book. Even better if my cat is nearby. Way even better if my dearest hubby is also nearby.
