For Today. . . February 12, 2018
Looking out my window at a bitter cold day. There are traces of snow on the ground, and tree branches are silhouetted against heavy gray skies.
I am thinking that my blog is taking a back seat to some other projects I'm working on around the house, so I may not be posting as frequently as I like to.
I am thankful that Dan had a good weekend spent with some friends in the mountains, and that he's back home now.
One of my favorite things is using pretty stamps for cards and notes.
I am creating "new" bookcases for the study, by painting some old ones. Here's the work in progress:
I am wearing jeans, long sleeve t-shirt and a sweater vest.
I am reading Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. My friend Rick recommended it to me years ago, and I finally picked up a copy. Now, I can't put it down!
I am hoping to finish a knitting project while watching the Olympics for the next two weeks.
I am learning that less is more.
In my kitchen, I'm making homemade granola.
Post Script. My niece has started a blog to document her progress in fitness, the Whole 30 diet, and a little competition with her dad. If you'd like to check it out, here's the link: The Biggest Loser
Quote for the day:
Speak your mind, but ride a fast horse.
A moment from my day: No pictures. Just lots of cleaning today, laundry and a trip to the grocery store.
