For Today. . .Wednesday, February 2, 2011
Outside my window. . . it is a cool 7 degrees Fahrenheit, with about two inches of snow. The sun is shining bright in a clear, blue sky. We have the fireplace going and a pot of tea brewing.
I am thinking. . .this is the second day that the kids are home from school. I don't ever recall the schools being closed due to cold weather. I guess there's a first time for everything.
From the kitchen. . . leftover enchiladas for lunch.
I am wearing. . . jeans and a long sleeved tee-shirt.
I am creating. . . Valentine cookies!
I am going. . . no where! I had an appointment this morning and I'm glad to be home again.
I am reading. . . "Get Out of My Life, But First Can You Drive Me and Cheryl to the Mall" and "Your Aging Dog." At this point, I'm more optimistic about the dog.
I am hoping. . . for a calm rest of the week.
I am hearing. . .A sitcom on t.v. and Lilly, our English Springer Spaniel, whining to go out. It is soooo cold, and she just doesn't get it! Nobody wants to play outside.
Around the house. . . kinda messy. Unmade beds, a sink full of dirty dishes. We're very relaxed today.
One of my favorite things. . .Valentines, handwritten letters, Crabtree and Evelyn lavender soap. (Yes, I know. That's three!)
A few plans for the rest of the week. . . we had a super busy weekend, so this weekend will be spent working on a few projects around the house (DH is redoing our kitchen island -- I will take before and after photos!).
A picture thought I am sharing. . .The Simple Woman's Daybook.
