For Today…Monday, January 19, 2009, I will focus staying on task.
Outside My Window…the sky is overcast. Our chickens are scratching around in their yard, happy to be out of their coop.
I am thinking…of my grandson Eli. Today is his birthday. I’m hoping it will be a grand one for him.
From the learning room…knitting still awaits my first move. Those needles will produce nothing without me. Maybe today will be the day I pick them up.
I am thankful for…my dear husband. He is truly the love of my life.
From the kitchen…not much is happening. I’ve started de-cluttering the counters and have made a mess. Today I hope to get it squared away.
I am wearing…a long sweat skirt, a long-sleeved t-top, a hooded sweatshirt, socks and my wooly slippers…if I could find my fingerless gloves I’d have them on, too.
I am creating…nothing. I’ve been hopelessly idle in the evenings lately. Days have been absorbed by daily chores around the house and outside work. Fabric for a bag is laying on my cutting table…it’s another “maybe today” accomplishment.
I am going…absolutely nowhere today unless my car payment is due.
I am reading…One Shenandoah Winter by T. Davis Bunn. So far it’s a delightful read. This little book has been on my bookshelf for years. Last night while my DH was watching football I picked it up and started reading it…I toyed with the idea of reading late into the night but decided to go to sleep. I could easily curl up in a corner of the couch and read the rest of it today…if so much was not in need of my care around the house.
I am hoping…for our taxes to be reduced after I call the tax assessor’s office. It appears they are still taxing us for the house we lost in Katrina…in that event there should be a profitable adjustment in our favor for the past three years. I do hope I’m not being too optimistic…
I am hearing…the whir of the dishwasher as it fills with water and the Glenn Beck Show on talk radio.
Around the house…tender loving care is needed.
One of my favorite things…fruit smoothies made with yogurt and soy milk. I do believe I’ll make one as soon as I finish this daybook entry.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: My calendar is a blank page…I plan on taking the week one day at a time. That’s all we get anyway.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…
Until next time…
