For Today -

For today: January 24, 2009

Outside my window...the sun is shining for the second day in a row. I may have to go out and oak some of it up later today.

I am thinking...that a big cup of coffee first thing in the morning is a wonderful thing.

I am thankful for...a few quiet moments to myself in the morning.

From the kitchen...I believe Richard is going to make a big Sunday breakfast.

I am wearing...a long brown skirt and a brown t-shirt.

I am creating...a Halloween cross stitch that I started ages ago. I keep putting it aside - but hope to finish it today.

I am either go for a walk today or go to the gym.

I am reading..."Still Alice" - by Lisa Genova. It is about a 50 yr. old woman who is diagnosed with Alzheimer's. It is going to be sad.

I am hoping...for some warmer temperatures very soon!

I am hearing...the tv (not my favorite sound), but Jake jut got up and it is his habit to spend Sunday morning watching sports.

Around the house...still quiet - and sort of messy (I have to do something about that today.)

One of my favorite big green coffee mug.

A few plans for the rest of the week...go to the gym after work, finish my cross stitch, watch a few episodes of "Weeds".

From my picture journal...Jennifer & Lily

Blog Therapy

I've been away from here for awhile - just busy living I guess. I thought it would be good for me to get back to this blog and I wanted to start with something to cheer me up. (I seem to need a lot of cheering up these days - but life gets like that sometimes). This picture never fails to make me smile - thinking about my family I miss, and thinking about Connor and Luke and how silly they thought it was to stop and see "Iowa's Largest Frying Pan" - but how can you pass up seeing something like that? : )
