Outside my window... most of the 14" of snow from the blizzard last Thursday has melted. Last night, it snowed about an inch, a light dusting that covered the lawns and gave fresh coats to all the snowmen that are hanging out on the lawns in our neighborhood.
I am thinking... spring break is over and in two months the kids will be out of school for the summer. I know the time will go fast. In less than two weeks, Joe will be home for Easter. As I'm counting down for what lies in the future, I need to enjoy each day and be present in the moment.
I am thankful for... books. That my parents instilled in me a love for reading.
From the kitchen... cinnamon rolls. Soccer and baseball are canceled for the next couple days, so we'll go back into winter mode and have cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate.
I am wearing... jeans, long sleeved t-shirt, hiking boots
I am reading... Escaping Into the Open; the Art of Writing True, by Elizabeth Berg.
I am hoping... for some nice weather soon, to start my garden.
I am creating... order out of chaos in my home. (Still working on it!)
I am hearing... the clock ticking, the dog snoring softly at my feet and Phil Collins singing "Against All Odds."
Around the house... paint the upstairs hallway.
One of my favorite things... meeting my brother for coffee on Mondays. (Hi, Matt;)
A few plans for the rest of the week... more snow is predicted, so our calendar will most likely be fairly empty without baseball and soccer. Tomorrow night: dinner out with girlfriends to celebrate a birthday.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you... spring four years ago. Em's first communion. Where has the time gone? My kids are growing up too fast!
