My Daybook

January 18, 2011

Outside my window...Snowing again.  And our 2nd snow day of the year. This one could get a little nasty because they are saying it may actually change over to freezing rain.  UGH!  That could mean power outage and we are very prone to that.

I am thinking....about how I can convince my hubby to not go into work today.  For some reason he is not at all concerned about today's snow and the multi-car accident on the Interstate that he takes to work.  I know he hates to miss work but it is so stressful when he heads out in this weather.

I am thankful for...being able to stay home today. 

From the learning rooms... We have been pretty easy-going since getting back into school after winter break.  

From the kitchen...I did it!! I got the bread machine out and have made 3 loaves of wheat bread this past week.  It is SO good.   This might just save me an extra $20 a month :)

I am wearing.... Pink fleece PJ's and my son's old American Eagle sweatshirt. I love stealing his sweatshirts now when he grows out of them.

I am creating...still nothing :(

I am going...to have to shovel today.  Yuck! 

I am reading...The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents by Deepak Chopra

I am hoping....for a smoothe day of traveling to work for my husband in this weather.

I am hearing...My son talking to his friend on X-box live.  

Around the house...I finally took the Christmas tree down.  Well...kind of.   I took all the ornaments off and moved it into the sunroom with just the lights on it.  I was joking about leaving it up all year and even the family thought it would be fun for a little bit longer.  Go figure!  Dave said "be different"...."be bold".  I said "Okie Dokie"!   Now it's an evergreen in the sunroom with pretty white lights.  I may just have to see if I can find some Valentines ornaments. Or maybe Sophie and I can make some :)  Ohhhh  funnnn!!!!!

One of my favorite things....my pink fuzzy slippers.

A few plans for the rest of the week...cleaning and organizing the basement.  I am starting to feel the itch to purge stuff.

From my picture journal ...Kitty Blanket.

My Daybook  is part of the Simple Woman's Daybook


  1. You can make little paper strip hearts. I made some for our Christmas tree this year. So easy and so cute! Love that cat!

  2. Wow your cat is very big..looks like he makes a great blanket! ;) YAY for the homemade, fresh bread. I am looking for a bread maker..I tried using my food processor and it began to smoke! LOL
