FOR TODAY December 30, 2014
Outside my window... glorious sunshine and a temperature of 2 degrees Fahrenheit. Brrrr.
I am thinking... this morning did not start out great. Mason woke me up with a little diarrhea accident to clean up, then when I was getting him all clean there was no hot water. Finally, I went to make a pot of coffee and spilled the grounds all over in my haste to feed my addiction.
I am thankful... for on demand hot water, my husband and my children. Not necessarily in that order. :)
In the kitchen... oh if I were brave enough to take a picture of the kitchen right now. There are presents on the counter waiting to be wrapped, gifts we received waiting for a new home, a stack of mail waiting for me to go through and one of the kids hairbrush.
I am wearing... a cozy plaid flannel shirt and yoga pants with bare feet. I need some slippers.
I am creating... a new business? Through a conversation with my sister and some late night brainstorming, a plan is forming.
I am going... to take down the Christmas tree soon. Dragging my feet because I love the lights and don't want to say goodbye just yet.
I am wondering... why pajamas can't be worn all day? Or can they?
I am reading... Tidings of Comfort and Joy by Davis Bunn
I am hoping... my day will end better than it started.
I am looking forward to... having a few more days off with my hubby. It's always good to have him home.
I am learning... everyday!
Around the house... laundry, suitcases, presents, kids, me and the dog.
I am pondering... the new year. What will it bring and how will I change?
A favorite quote for today... "I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
One of my favorite things... watching the snow fall while warm and cozy by the fire.
A few plans for the rest of the week: enjoy our Christmas break and celebrate the new year.
