For Today. . . March 23, 2009
Outside my window... A cool 40-some degrees. Slight breeze, tulips are poking up from the ground, trees are budding out

I am thinking... what a difference a day makes. Yesterday it was 79 degrees. We spent the day outdoors, turning over the garden, cleaning the car, washing out trash cans, attempting to wash the dog. She got away. This week is supposed to be 30s and 40s and snow.

I am thankful for... change of seasons.

From the kitchen... Lemon poppy seed muffins.

I am wearing... jeans, sweatshirt, sneakers.

I am reading... Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunee. Oooh, is it good!

I am hoping... to find time to see the new Julia Roberts movie this week.

I am creating... organization out of my tupperware drawer. Yes, it's about as exciting as sorting your sock drawer, but it makes me happy.

I am hearing... the t.v. on in the other room.

Around the house... Lots of things in disarray. The kids are home on spring break;)

One of my favorite things... Luke says, one of my favorite things is making him do things he doesn't want to do.

A few plans for the rest of the week... a Staycation. We're going to movies today, and we'll take the rest of the week as it comes.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
this is a photo I took last week, driving along the front range at sunset.

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who derives joy from organizing her Tupperware drawer!

Courtney was lamenting the weather to me yesterday. I know you guys will be happy when it makes up it's mind!!

It's great to see you're thankful for the changes in seasons, considering how your weather went from 79 then to snow!

I had to smile at your Luke saying your favorite thing was to make him do things he didn't want to do. I'm sure my teens think the same thing about me!

God bless, and thanks for commenting on my blog.

Wow, 79 to 40's and snow, that is a weather change! It's still warm here, 70's most every day. I wish it would stay that way for a while, but we'll have 90's soon, and for a long time. Thru Sept or October, at least. Sigh.

I love tulips, I bet yours are so pretty peeking up from the ground :)

Hope you guys have a great week and fun on spring break. If you see the Julia Roberts movie, let us know what you think. It didn't do well opening weekend at the box office, so I was wondering...

Have a great day! :)

Cool picture! And wow, more snow...I think I'm glad our weather has warmed up some although I'll be sick of it during the summer.
One of our couple friends saw that movie the other night and said it was pretty good but hard to follow at times! But I think by the end they knew what was going on. Let us know what you think when you see it.
Enjoy spring break!

Great picture at the title of your blog.
All closets are the spring cleaning task at our house this week, tupperware must be done regularly.
Great picture at sunset!
