Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY January 19, 2009

Outside my window... it is grey and cloudy and chilly. But not quite chilly enough to snow. grrrrr

I am thinking... that I want to take a nap, and that I wish I could find a paperback of the book I have checked out of the library, because the hard back is turning out to be non-bed reading friendly
I am thankful for... my husband being on vacation this week, AND that I am not fertile the entire time he'll be off. Last year eaach and every time he was on vacation, I was fertile. Okay, maybe TMI--but I am thankful for that!
From the learning rooms... lots of talk about the inauguration and about how the government works- it's structure, etc.
From the kitchen... tonight steaks from Angel Food Ministries, with snap peas and sweet potatoes. Hopefully to bake some kind of goody this week.

I am wearing... my jammies, even though it's 2:30. It's a reminder that it's a vacation day.

I am creating... hopefull a sort of blanket-y , wrap thing. If I can get my stitches to stay on my needles. I resorted to using duct tape, and as with all things, duct tape has made it better.
I am going... to a university gymnastics meet with my oldest two daughters in a little while

I am reading... From Here To Eternity by James Jones

I am hoping... that we won't spend the whole week fighitng colds.

I am hearing... the oldest two fighting over their chess game. The youngest two destroying the living room as they "watch" Blue's Clues (do television shows get quotations or italicized?)

Around the house... our laundry is caught up. I am hoping to work on the closet project I've
undertaken this week

One of my favorite things...
though I almost never do it- is sleeping in. My husband got up with the smalls today and let me linger in bed for another hour. Can't tell you the last time that happened!

A few plans for the rest of the week: same ol', smae ol'. School stuff, gymnastics, violin starts. I am hoping to play more with my kids this week.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
