 The circuit:

 
 * LCD RS pin to digital pin 12
 * LCD Enable pin to digital pin 11
 * LCD D4 pin to digital pin 5
 * LCD D5 pin to digital pin 4
 * LCD D6 pin to digital pin 3
 * LCD D7 pin to digital pin 2
 * LCD R/W pin to ground
 * LCD VSS pin to ground
 * LCD VCC pin to 5V
 * LCD K pin to ground
 * LCD A pin to 5V
 * LCD V0 pin to digital pin 6
 * LED to pin 13



 put a 110 ohm resitance in series with the thermistor, the side of 110 resitance to 5V 
 the side of the thermistor to GND and the point where the thermistor and the resitence meet
 to analog input A0

live plot.py

Python
this is the python script for plotting the data you have to install mathplotlib library
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib.animation as animation
from matplotlib import style
import datetime as dta
'''configuring the plot'''
style.use('ggplot')
fig = plt.figure()
ax1 = fig.add_subplot(1,1,1)

def animate(i):
    dateconv = dta.datetime.fromtimestamp
    '''define the function that gonna convert the unix time to date'''
    graph_data = open('example.txt','r').read()
    '''read the data from the txt file'''
    lines = graph_data.split('\n')
    ''' split the lines as a list'''
    xs = []
    ''' x axis the tempurature'''
    ys = []
    ''' y axis the date'''
    for line in lines:
        ''' read the lines and append the data to ys ans xs'''
        if len(line) > 1:
            '''get only the non-empty line'''
            x, y = line.split(',')
            x=float(x)
            y=float(y)
            xs.append(x)
            y = dateconv(y)
            ''' converte the unix time'''
            ys.append(y)
    '''plot the data'''
    ax1.clear()
    ax1.plot(ys, xs,label='temperature')
    for label in ax1.xaxis.get_ticklabels():
        '''set the rotation of the date into 45 degree in order to be readable'''
        label.set_rotation(45)
    plt.xlabel('date')
    plt.ylabel('temperature')
    plt.legend()
ani = animation.FuncAnimation(fig, animate, interval=1000)
'''animate the plot and refresh evry 1 second'''
plt.subplots_adjust(left=0.09, bottom=0.23, right=0.93, top=0.90, wspace=0.2, hspace=0)
'''just configurations'''
plt.show()

serial colector.py

Python
this is the python script to save the data to a txt file ,you have to install serial library
from serial import Serial
import time
'''set the serial to connect to the arduino (you should change the port)'''
ser =Serial(
    port='COM8',
    baudrate = 115200,
    timeout=None)
def adddata(data):
    '''a function to add the data to the text file'''
    date=time.time()
    h=str(data)+','+str(date)+'\n'
    fh = open('example.txt', 'a')
    fh.write(h) 
    fh.close 
while 1:
    ''' infinit loop'''
    while(ser.inWaiting()==0):
        '''wait for the data from serial'''
        pass
    a=float(ser.readline().decode('utf-8'))
    '''read and decode the data'''
    adddata(a)
    '''add the data to the txt file'''
