FOR TODAY January 9, 2013

Outside my window...
beautiful blue sky and bright sunshine.

I am thinking... it feels good to be recording my thoughts today.

I am thankful... for the internet and podcasts.  Just listened to an inspiring message.

In the kitchen... an oven begging to be cleaned and a refrigerator with empty shelves.

I am wearing... striped pajama pants and a long-sleeved gray t-shirt.

I am creating... a little gift for a baby girl who has not yet arrived into this world.

I am going... to get over this cold someday!

I am wondering... if I can keep Mason out of trouble today.  He is a mischievous little one.

I am reading... all the notecards I made last year.  Starting a new batch for the new year.

I am hoping... my money tree will produce this year.  That little plant just doesn't seem to be growing. 

I am looking forward to... new challenges, new thoughts and ideas, new projects and new energy in the new year.

I am learning... Not to panic when a test result comes back abnormal.

Around the house... Dora the Explorer is entertaining Mason so that I can finish some lesson plans, but I'm using the time to finish this blog post!

I am pondering... the children's strengths and how to steer them into their areas of expertise in the upcoming years.

A quote for today... "Only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain." ~ Richard M. Nixon

One of my favorite things... owls.  Ever since I was a young girl I've had an affinity for owls.  I'm trying to fit them into my home decor slowly but surely.  Current home decor owl count: 1

A few plans for the rest of the week: I plan on getting back into a routine after our Christmas vacation.  Trying to keep extra activities to a minimum so we can focus.  Hard to do after so much time off.

A peek into my day...
