FOR TODAY...Monday February 16, 2009
Outside my window...Darkness as I am getting this done later than usual, although today was a beautiful sunny day - very nippy but lovely all the same.
I am thinking...about my Mom. I visited with her today on the phone. What a fun chat we had.
I am thankful for...telephones so that we can stay in touch with those we love. I often think about the families who left their loved ones and traveled West in covered wagons - how difficult to say goodbye knowing that staying in touch was practically impossible. While I am drawn to that lifestyle I'm thankful for the advantages of technology!!!
From the learning rooms...We are on Mid-Winter break. All school activities, mid-week church activities and co-op activities are cancelled for the week. Yahoo - time to do a few household projects.
From the kitchen...crockpot meals this week so I can do my kitchen projects
I am wearing...pink and grey rugby shirt and denim skirt, slippers and a baby snuggled up against me
I am creating...still working on my thread doily for the nursery lady at church. I didn't get much done last week. I'm also going to sew a new kitchen curtain this week.
I am going...to be cleaning my kitchen from top to bottom this week. Cleaning out cupboards, laying new shelf paper, scrubbing down cupboard doors and rearranging drawers. I'm going to wash knicknacks, and sew new valances and put up a new little curtain under my sink. It's the first task in my Spring cleaning plan. Since the kitchen is such a big project I'm giving myself the whole mid-winter break to do it. Spring break will probably be the rest of the house.
I am reading...a little book from the library a knitting mystery book - kinda silly but fun
I am hoping...Esther will be happy playing with her sisters and brothers lots this week so I can get lots done.
I am hearing...the kids saying their prayers with Daddy and giggling while he tucks them in - such sweet sounds
Around the house...tidied up today so I can hit the kitchen running in the morning
One of my favorite things...lists and the little "done" check marks next to them :0)
A few plans for the rest of the week: you already read that part :0)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...Some of my kitchen pretties (part of my depression glass collection) I will be shining up this week - I love it when my pretties are all sparkly clean.
