FOR TODAY - February 1, 2011
Outside my window... It's so cold!! This morning it was minus 14 below- right now it's about 8 degrees! But, the sun is shining, and it's just beautiful outside!! I can almost tolerate the cold when the sun is shining!
I am thinking... About all of the things I need to get done this week. I have some sewing I need to work on, some organizing I need to do (so I can sew!). Some paperwork that needs to be done before Monday. Just piddly things that I tend to put off!
I am thankful for... Pandora Radio! I love being able to listen to the kind of music that I love with just the click of a key!! I'm also thankful that my hairdresser could make me feel human again!
Please don't pay any attention to the bags under my eyes. . . :0) The back of my hair is really cute and spiky, but I couldn't get a picture of it!
A Scripture to share...
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
From the kitchen... I have a big pot of Chili simmering on the stove! It smells really good, I can hardly wait to eat dinner tonight!! Yesterday, I made the most wonderful salad dressing - I found it here, at Aprons & Apples, a wonderful blog! This dressing is so good, I could have eaten it by the spoonful, it has quickly become my favorite! Yesterday I also made bread, my daughters were here with a few of their children, so we all enjoyed hot bread with butter and honey, yummmm!
I am wearing... Jeans, a brown long sleeved t-shirt, black socks and . . . shoes!
I am creating... Thursday, I'm going to be creating some freezer meals for my daughter who is getting ready to have a baby. I can't think of anything better than to go to the freezer and take out something already made, and ready to put in the oven, especially when you have three little ones to take care of! She has her babies c-section and will be down for a few weeks . . . if I have anything to say about it . . . :0)
I am going... to hopefully go to lunch with mom and sis tomorrow. I will also, hopefully, be picking up my new glasses. I have worn contacts for the last few years, but I just don't see well enough with them anymore. does anyone else have that problem?
I am reading... I would love to be reading something, but . . . not enough time right now!
I am hoping... That I can come up with some cute ideas for my DIL's baby shower. I think we have the invitation ready to go, but we are still not sure on the food. Suggestions are welcome!
I am hearing... Dean Martin singing. "Sway"!
Around the house... Not much going on around here - just the usual necessary things that need to be done on a regular basis! I've been trying to go to bed earlier, so that when I get up with my husband at 4:15 a.m., I can stay up without getting so tired in the afternoon. So far it hasn't worked!! I still go back to bed, mostly because it is cold. I tell myself that I will just watch t.v. for a little while, but I always fall asleep.
One of my favorite things... Going to the movies with my sweetheart. Last Saturday, we went and saw True Grit. I really liked it! I loved the original with John Wayne, but I really liked the re-make too! Now, if they could just do something about the price of popcorn!!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Tomorrow - Lunch with mom and sis.
Thursday - Make freezer meals with my daughter.
Friday - Hang out with my husband.
Saturday - Again, we will make an attempt to work on the bathroom?!
Sunday - Church
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
'It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!'
