For Today...

Outside my window. . . a beautiful day. Warm temps, sunshine. I wish I could send some of it to my friends, Jen and Trailboss, in Kentucky

I am thinking . . . that we had a nice weekend. Two of my brothers and their families were here Saturday night. Lots of talking, food, laughter.

I am thankful for... a husband who is so tolerant of my whims, such as "let's paint the powder room this weekend," and he puts everything aside and helps me.

From the kitchen... Salmon cakes, noodles, salad

I am wearing... jeans, long sleeved t-shirt, sneakers.

I am reading... The God of Our Deepest Longings by Peter Van Breeman

I am hoping... I remain caught up with work this week. I feel so much better when I stay on track.

I am creating... Valentine treats

I am hearing... Jason Michael Carroll on the radio.

Around the house. . . needs some tidying up, cleaning, laundry, the usual.

One of my favorite things...doing the daily crossword puzzle.

A few plans for the rest of the week... take the dog to the Vet, friends coming for dinner on Saturday, the usual kids' activities.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
this was one week ago.

I was waiting for this today!

Poor Kentucky! They are really getting hit so hard and not prepared for this kind of thing. It would be like us getting a foot of snow. I feel for them and I hope they all keep safe.

Have a great week, Karen!

OH, love your birch tree. I want to plant some around our property. We have mostly Maple and Cottonwood. Sounds like you had a very nice day, good!

it was a beautiful day, wasn't it. th whole week looks good.

what kind of valentine day treats? will you be sharing that with us?

Joanne said...

Wouldn't it be nice to bottle up some of that sunshine and warmth, put a ribbon on it and send it off to friends in snowy climates? I guess blogging comes close though, sending it off with our words!

Valentine treats sounds fun! I'm trying to get some things together for the kids.
It's cold here but thank goodness we never lost power or had those storms like some of the other states; been there and done that and it's never fun.
