FOR TODAY - January 25, 2011
Outside my window... Last night we got about 4 inches of new snow. It's also cold, 25 degrees or so. The roads are icy and slick, so I won't be venturing out today! Although, there is an up-side - the trees are just beautiful with all of that white frosting and everything looks clean and fresh! It's cold and cloudy, but at least it looks beautiful outside!
I am thinking...How much I would love to get my hair cut! It just hit that "impossible to do anything with" stage!
I am thankful for...People who cheer me up, keep me going, encourage me, make me laugh, and allow me to help them.
A thought to share...
"What I need to live has been given to me by the earth. Why I need to live has been given to me by you.''
From the kitchen... I think I will make a meatloaf tonight - it's one of those comfort foods that always make me feel better on a day like today . . . sigh . . .
I am wearing... Jeans, a light blue sweater, black socks.
I am creating... I'm making receiving blankets and burp cloths for my new little grandbabies. Also crocheting a beautiful little blanket for my almost here little baby girl~
I am going...to try to get my house cleaned and get some organizing done today. Last week I got the dreaded stomach flu! The older we get, the harder those little bugs are on us, so, today, I'm finally feeling like doing something.
I am reading...Nothing right now.
I am hoping...That my daughter, who is due the end of February, does not over due it. I don't think you ever stop worrying about your kids - I sometimes worry even more now than I used to!
I am hearing...The furnace kicking on to keep my toes warm - baby it's cold outside!
Around the house...
Clean the kitchen
vacuum the floors
organize fabric and patterns
One of my favorite things...Sitting in the sun - no hope of that today, but I love it when the sun shines in through the window and I can just soak in it's rays!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Today - clean and organize a few things
Tomorrow - hopefully get my hair cut
Thursday - grocery shop
Friday - whatever hubby wants to do
Saturday - maybe work on downstairs bathroom
Sunday - Church
Here are a few pictures I am sharing...
It was my DIL's birthday on Sunday, so we all got together to have dinner and cake and icecream! We somehow convinced my sweet little granddaughter to put on her great-grandfather's navy clothes. My husband's father was vertically challenged - he was only about 5' 5" on his tippy toes! Taylor Jo is 10 years old, the sleeves and pants were too long, and the clothes were just a tad big, but isn't it amazing that they almost fit? We thought about trying them on Christian, who is 12, but he wouldn't even have been able to get the shirt over his head (Christian is tall - probably 5' 6" or so)! The flag behind Taylor is the flag that was presented to my husband's mother at his father's funeral.
This was Brody's biggest smile!! I gave him a haircut, and he was so excited, that he wanted me to take a picture of him! Right after Brody started school this year, I went and helped his class make a cute little paper eagle out of a paper bag - not a big deal to me, I was pleased as punch to do it! While I was cutting his hair, he asked me if I would come to his school again and "perform" for his class - isn't it funny what kids think? All I did was sit behind a desk and help, I didn't sing or dance! Anyway, he told me that the day I came and helped was, " . . . the best day in the history of school!". Oh how I love that boy!
One last picture . . .
I'm not sure who took this cute picture of Emily, I think it was Brody. This is our sweet little Emily tucked between two chairs, looking like an angel!
Stay warm - keep dry - laugh a little - cry a little - love a lot!
