For Today. . . February 25, 2013
Outside my window. . . a fresh blanket of snow from yesterday's blizzard. Blue skies and bright sunshine.
I am thinking. . . of Dan at O'Hare Airport with a million other people. He left the house at 4:00 this morning to catch an early flight. It will be a full day of travel for him.
I am thankful. . . for a warm house with a fireplace.
In the kitchen. . . lingering aromas of the Italian dinner we had yesterday. Meatball sandwiches for supper tonight. Emily baked chocolate chip cookies yesterday.
I am wearing. . . jeans, sweater, hiking boots.
I am creating. . . a new journal.
I am going. . . to take the dogs for a walk and then stay home the rest of the day until it's time to pick Emily up from school.
I am reading. . . "Rules of Civility" by Amor Towles, for book club.
I am hoping. . . that we get some more snow tomorrow, as we need the moisture.
I am looking forward to. . .when Dan gets home at the end of the week, and spending time with our friends this weekend.
I am hearing. . . Brad Paisley on Pandora radio.
I am learning. . . how to slipcover a chair.
Around the house. . . bills to pay, bathrooms to clean, make a menu plan, get organized so the rest of the week will flow smoothly.
A favorite quote for today. . . "You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn North."
Some of my favorite things. . . avocados, good manners, watching the Academy Awards.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . . coffee with a friend, some appointments, work, a birthday party.
A peek into my day. . . Some photos from yesterday's snowstorm.
