Outside my window/WEATHER… a light rain is falling and fog is still hugging the pavement.
I am thinking…it’s going to be a long week!
I am thankful… for my family and their love.
In the kitchen… we have a few new recipes still brewing for the January menu.
I’ll post the successful ones on my food blog ALWAYS EAT ON THE GOOD CHINA.
- Kentucky Hot Browns
- Cream of Tomato Soup w/ Rice
- Cream of Vegetable Soup
- Pork Chops w/ Roasted Apple & Onions
I’M WEARING… very worn levis, my comfiest turtleneck and cozy socks.
I’M CREATING… some organization for the VA files, recipe files and various other paperwork, some quilt pieces that have been needing finished for a while (I just have problems sitting for any length of time due to the scar tissue from my cancer surgery), Christmas gifts for next year – quit laughing, these things take time and I’m also creating some new recipes.

I am going… nowhere until I’m done scanning in ALL the VA documents and composing more letters to our congressman in hopes of clearing things up – yay, like that’s going to happen, but I have to follow procedure. For every step forward we seem to take 3 backwards! This week though we’re moving onto multiple letters.
I am wondering… just who to contact next regarding the VA mess. We’re finally meeting up with a new service officer this morning – seems like we’re always starting over.

I am hoping… things turn around soon
I am looking forward to… getting away for a few days next month.
I am learning… how to be patient, but also how to squeak the wheel for oil!
Around the house… organization is finally winning – rooms are being painted, baseboards are getting painted and fine dusting is being done.
I am praying… to live in the day and not worry about the future as much.
A favorite quote for today…
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Favorite picture from my camera this week… this guy has been hanging around for several weeks. I’ve been trying to get a picture of him in the backyard, but he’s always too quick for me. I did catch him on the power pole out back though. He loves to annoy the dogs!
