Daybook Time

FOR TODAY March 9, 2009...

Outside my window... Snowflakes falling pretty heavily, dusting the branches of the fir tree and leaving silvery drops on my bare maple tree. It's looking very wintery this morning. I'm not sure but I don't think this was predicted.

I am thinking...About my week ahead - Hubby is leaving town today for a few days.

I am thankful for..My Mom's successful surgery. She's starting to feel better. I'm so glad. We had such a wonderful visit on the phone this weekend. I'm looking forward to Easter when I think we'll see my parents!!!

From the learning rooms...A bit of a slow start this morning since Daddy is home getting ready to leave and they all want to be with him - plus he let me sleep in this morning as I probably won't get much while he's gone. Thanks Honey :0)!!

From the kitchen...Yogurt and Chicken soup - I always want soup when it's wintery outside and several kids have bad colds so chicken soup is just the thing!!

I am wearing...soft grey skirt and pink and grey top, slippers as usual and a super wiggly baby (this is a challenge to type!!)

I am creating...a crochet shawl with the beautiful laceweight alpaca yarn my sister gave me for Christmas. This will be my something new for Easter.

I am going...Grocery shopping and to the fruit stand before Wayne leaves - hopefully I won't forget anything!!

I am reading...II Corinthians and The Darcy's Give a Ball. I'm just starting this book - it's a continuation of Pride and Prejudice - it looks fun!!

I am hoping...The kids colds don't turn into ear infections or get any nastier while Daddy is gone. So far three are down so there are a few to go :0)!

I am hearing...The kids eating their breakfast - I made homemade granola this weekend and the kids said this batch turned out good. They seem to be eating it right up :0)

Around the house...General tidy up - the floors need a good sweeping!!

One of my favorite things...The fruit stand!! I just love the smells and colors and atmosphere.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Just regular week - just our normal routine - I like regular routines!!!

Here is a picture I'm sharing: My fruit stand shopping - this was a picture from the end of the season last fall - since I haven't done a big trip there yet - that's for today!! I just love the colors of all that yummy stuff God made!!
