For Today . . . January 5, 2009 - the first entry of the year!
Outside My Window . . . a wonderfully mild winter's day with temperatures of -6 degrees Celsius, a hazy sky and about a foot of snow on the ground.
I am thinking . . . that I need to get back in the routine of early bedtimes and early risings
I am thankful that . . . the cold weather broke and we can actually enjoy being outdoors now
From the kitchen . . . leftovers like ham, veggies and pasta, and Christmas cookies.
I am wearing . . . blue cords, a blue angora sweater with lots of silver bling, and brown polka dotted slipons
I am reading . . . The Book Thief by Markus Zakus for book club next week
I am hoping . . . that I can kick this cold and cough before it gets too bad - I drank about 6 cups of tea with honey and lemon today!
I am hearing . . . the CBC 10 o'clock news
I am creating . . . the last few pages of my December Daily album - I really like how it turned out
Around the house . . . a dry Christmas tree to un-decorate and ornaments to pack away
One of my favourite things . . . checking my blog and seeing what everyone's been up to at the end of the day
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . subbing tomorrow, bake a birthday cake for Bob, laundry, write thank-you letters, and babysit Meadow on Saturday night so her Mom and Dad can have a date night (part of their Christmas present)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . . .
A fun sculpture of white cotton 'beans' at the National Art Gallery of Brazil in the nation's capital, Brasilia. This brought back lots of fun memories when I found it today!
