FOR TODAY January 2, 2013 (how hard is that going to be to get used to?!)
Outside my window... Beautiful, bright, sunny, wintery white . . . and freezing cold, 15.2 degrees when I checked a few minutes ago!! The snow is so pretty - it's been such a soft, light snow that my husband cleared the front porch yesterday with the leaf blower!
I am thinking... The same thing that most people are thinking about today . . . New Year's Resolutions . . . or the lack thereof! I'm not really a New Year's Resolution girl. I like the think that through the years I will just . . . evolve . . . into the person I one day hope to be . . . hehehehehe!! Actually, my goal is just to be a better person tomorrow, than I am today. Whew, I will have to work really hard!
I am thankful... My husband was in a car accident on Christmas Day, and I am so thankful that he was not hurt, as it could have been much, much worse than it was . . . tender mercies . . .
In the kitchen... I just got done baking a big winter squash that was taking up space in my kitchen! I will save some to eat tomorrow, and freeze the rest for later.... yum!
I am wearing... Blue jeans and a brown fleece sweater - oh, I do have on my shoes, it's cold outside!
I am creating... I have actually been thinking about what I want to "create", for Christmas next year!
I am going... Staying home tonight!
I am wondering...I really don't think anyone wants to know my thoughts right now.... :0)
I am reading... I'm not really reading anything right now. But, I will be reading, The Snow Owl, by Jon Hartling.
I am hoping...For a wonderful year!
I am looking forward to... Taking down the tree - I love to have it up, but it's time to come down now!
Around the house... I will be taking down the tree tomorrow.
I am pondering... A sweet aunt of mine passed away the day after Christmas - She was the last of my father's siblings to pass. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, daughter and aunt. She will be missed so greatly by her family and those who loved and treasured her. I am pondering the reunion that she must have had with her sister (who passed away in November) her husband, her son, her parents, my father, and her other siblings. Love you Aunt Lois.
A favorite quote for today...
Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.
~Henry Ward Beecher~
One of my favorite things... My Kindle Fire . . . I really love it . . . I am shocked, because I didn't think I needed one . . . silly me!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Tomorrow - take down the tree. Take the car to the body shop to be repaired.... :0(
Friday & Saturday - Clean up and start making my to-do list.
Sunday - church
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!
