FOR TODAY February 20, 2012

Outside my window... beautiful clear blue sky with the sun peeking over the horizon.

I am thinking... of all the wonderful blessings in my life from the birds outside to family and friends inside.

I am thankful... for today.  Every day is a gift to embrace.  Even Monday's!  :D

In the kitchen... cut flowers from my honey that are valiantly trying to shine even though they are a week old.

I am wearing... shades of gray.  Quite the contrast to the sunny day.

I am creating... organized spaces throughout the house.  Little by little I'm de-cluttering the spaces that have gotten away from me over the years.

I am going... to need a dental implant soon.  I still have a baby tooth that is starting to give up residence in my mouth and will need to fill the empty space with an implant.

I am wondering... how my sister and brother-in-law are doing.  They are both unexpectedly unemployed and I know from experience how stressful that can be.

I am reading... lots of books on Korea and China.  Fascinating countries with lots of history.

I am hoping... to find a kitchen fairy that will cook delicious healthy dinners for me this week.

I am looking forward to... spring or spring break, whichever comes first.

I am learning.... that I didn't pay much attention when I was in school.  I am re-learning all sorts of interesting things about the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King Jr.

Around the house... dog toys!  You would think he is another child by how many toys he has to leave around as tripping hazards.

I am pondering... what I'll be doing at this time next week.  Life seems to fly by and I enjoy reading over my last daybook entry to see how quickly things move and change.

A favorite quote for today... "Joy is the serious business of heaven." ~C.S. Lewis

One of my favorite things... M&M's in holiday colors.

A few plans for the rest of the week: bowling, Awana, doctor appointment, vet appointment, register for dog training classes, co-op, the parade of homes and squeeze in some time for me.

A peek into my day...
Mister M loves Milo's kennel.

They both just woke up and are enjoying a slow morning with dad.

  1. Kim,
    I love the picture of Mr. M in the dog cute.
    We just got a puppy last nigt...exhausted!!
    I sure hope you fine the kitchen fairy!!!

  2. I used a C.S. Lewis quote too and if that kitchen fairy appears can you tell her that Mel over at Hidden Valley Simplicity would like a visit too? ;)

  3. When you've finished with the kitchen fairy can you send her my way please??!

    Love the picture of the baby in the dog cage. Too cute :)

  4. Let me know, also, if that kitchen fairy shows up ... she's never been to my house!

    Love the C.S. Lewis quote - especially since JOY is my word for 2012.

  5. I am 100% with you on the decluttering project. Actually taking the 52 Week Home Organizing Challenge and blogging it. Has been so helpful for me! Great post.
