FOR TODAY, January 18th, 2009 ...
Outside My Window... A bit of a gray day. The sun is out, but the light is diffused by clouds and the heavy winter air. There are still patches of snow on the ground and the temperatures are chilly.
I am thinking...About the people of Haiti and what it would be like to have my world turned upside down like theirs has been.
From the kitchen... Burritos.
I am wearing...jeans, black shirt and my new favorite long sweater vest.
I am creating... some things in my sewing room. Just playing with fabric, making aprons.
I am going... to a movie ("Avatar") with my daughter this afternoon.
I am reading...finishing up Dragon House by John Shors. It's an excellent book, can't wait to tell you all about it.
I am hoping...that I can stay caught up with work. I worked long and hard last week, and if I stick to my plan, it should stay manageable.
I am thankful . . . that things are not always as bad as they seem.
I am hearing... the t.v. in the other room.
Around the house...kids are off school today, they are in and out with friends, so the house is feeling very busy and very lived in.
Some of my favorite things..."dangly" earrings, freshly brewed coffee, Pentel RSVP fine point pens, movie popcorn.
A few plans for the rest of the week...get my hair highlighted, book club, leave for Albuquerque on Friday for a retreat!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...one of our favorite holiday traditions is to have a jigsaw puzzle to work on the dining room table. It would be fun to do all the time, but I have absolutely no self discipline and can't keep myself away.
