Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY 9 February 2009:
Outside my window: There are still huge snowbanks that I can barely see over at the end of the driveway. HOWEVER! After 3 days of above freezing temps I can see little bits of grass peeking out around the edge of the drifts. Our driveway is considerably wider. And there is no ice on our sidewalks.
I am thinking: How blessed I am to have my husband!
I am thankful for: Time to learn. There is so much to learn, and I have time to learn at least a little bit of it.
From the learning rooms: I found a munchkin piano book that I think may work for Monkey! He's been asking me to listen to him when he plays his music on the piano. It's his turn for a "lesson." Now we have something to do when we do the lessons!
From the kitchen: Not much right now. I should can another batch of potatoes.
I am wearing: Jeans, green & yellow stripy socks, a yellow shirt from Antelope Island (in the middle of the Great Salt Lake), and a ratty old gray sweater that should have been retired a long time ago.
I am creating: A border for my brown sweater that shrank in the wash. It's coming out great! I have a picture of a small swatch. But it's better on the sweater. It's going quickly, so I'll have pictures of the finished product soon.
I am going: to Barnes & Nobel very soon: Andy gave me a big 'ole gift card for my birthday!
I am reading: A whole lot of books. And there's more that I can't get to.
I am hoping: To play Killer Bunnies again soon.
I am hearing: The Wheels on the Bus go round and round, round and round, round and round...
Around the house: I am collecting yarn. I've discovered knitting and rediscovered crochet.
One of my favorite things: Sitting in the sun in my rocker, playing with string, with a purring kitty sleeping on my lap. This happened this morning for a while and it was great.
A few plans for the rest of the week: A library trip and a visit to the park to see what sort of nature we can find around the pond. Piano lessons. Nap times. Regular life. Should be good.
Here is picture thought I am sharing:
