For Today. . . March 12, 2013
Outside my window. . . more snow. The roads and sidewalks are clear, but snow is clinging to every nook and cranny of the trees, and covering the lawn. Very pretty.
I am thinking. . . of the past year, and where it's taken us. . . . sometimes I look back in disbelief of all that we've weathered. But, more so in disbelief that we've grown from it and have found moments of joy along the way.
I am thankful. . . that Dan continues to find employment opportunities that keep us going.
In the kitchen. . . last night I made the best garlic mashed potatoes ever. I found the recipe here. I think the secret is in roasting the garlic in the oven before adding it to the potatoes.
I am wearing. . . jeans, sweater, hiking boots.
I am creating. . . that darned slipcover. Still.
I am going. . . to work this afternoon. Tuesdays are my favorite work days. I'm always busy, the time flies. . . and Dan makes soup and sandwiches for supper:)
I am reading. . . "Rules of Civility" by Amor Towles, for book club. Still. And not really liking it very much. I'm loving Max Lucado's "Six Hours One Friday." I'm trying not to hurry through, to make it last and last.
I am hoping. . . that Joe has good news today, re: a work-related issue.
I am looking forward to. . .spending time with Emily tomorrow.
I am hearing. . . Dierks Bentley on Pandora radio.
I am learning. . .
Around the house. . . I'm tired of doing indoor stuff and am making plans for the garden!
A favorite quote for today. . .
“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.”
Some of my favorite things. . . weddings, pretty stationery, a dry Reisling
A few plans for the rest of the week. . . dentist appointments, St. Patty's Day dinner, enjoy the spring weather at the end of the week!
A peek into my day. . . The quilt I finished over the weekend. My mom started this family quilt. The squares were pieced by Mom, my sisters-in-law, my Aunt Riz, my cousin Jackie and me. I loved finishing it and especially love the colors Mom chose.
