FOR TODAY January 26, 2009
Outside My Window... I must be getting a late start today because the sun is just coming up. It is a balmy 18 degrees outside, but a toasty 69 degrees in the kitchen thanks to my trusty Vermont Castings stove.
I am thinking... of what a wonderful weekend I had thanks to my dearest friend Mary Ellen bringing a new soul onto the world.
I am thankful for... the new Barrett baby, Brendan Michael, and the outpouring of support from the online world as well as our community here for Mary Ellen.
From the kitchen… I guess I should get working on those plans, huh? Tonight looks like a chicken night to me, though.
I am wearing... this morning calls for the big fuzzy blue robe. It’s not my favorite, but sometimes it is necessary.
I am creating... a menu and plans for when we meet our daughter’s future in-laws over Valentine’s weekend. I’m thinking of some kind of Valentines treat for her future nephews who will be joining us then.
I am going... to the usual places this week… basketball, ballet, pre-cana, ice skating, creative writing workshop.
I am reading... pretty much the same things as last week. Not much time for reading in the past week.
I am hoping... that the music class/choral group that I have organized is successful. We start Friday morning and it should be fun!
I am hearing… hissing and crackling of the fire
Around the house... my lack of organization in a few areas is definitely haunting me, so I hope to get a handle on those things.
One of my favorite things... I was going to say newborn babies sleeping in the nursery, but my MOST favorite thing would have to be holding a sleeping newborn, not just watching them through a glass!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: still didn’t get that haircut I was hoping for last week.
Here is picture thought I am sharing... that's right, Thomas is not wearing a coat. We did, however, convince him that boots were non-negotiable! THe child marches to the beat of a different drummer!
