Happy New Year everyone! January always finds me trying new ventures and this one shall be no different. I have over the last six months enjoyed reading "the Simple Woman's Daybook' and all the blogs of those who participate so I have decided I will give this a try. If you find this intriguing and perhaps want to sneak a peek at what others are doing this glorious Monday morning stop by and visit at http://thesimplewomansdaybook.blogspot.com/ .
Outside my window...it is cold and windy as it has been for the last few days, brrrr!
I am thinking...that it is peaceful and quiet in my home today, everyone is back to school and work!
I am thankful...for a loving husband and my sons and knowing they will return home this evening filling
the house with noise and laughter.
I am wearing...my warm and comfy jammies knowing I don't need to rush out anywhere today.
I am remembering...that I have much to be greatful for.
I am going...to spend the rest of this day organizing and cleaning, I love it when things are tidy!
I am hoping...that I will embrace this new season and all the possibilities that await me.
On my mind...my sister and her cancer treatments, praying that all of these months of chemo and
radiation have killed the cancer!
Noticing that...I feel hopeful about 2010.
Pondering these words..." Most people don't recognize opportunity when it comes, because it's
usually dressed in overalls and looks a lot like work." (Thomas Edison)
From the kitchen...planning on some homemade chicken soup to warm everyone up when they arrive home
Around the house...noticing how bare things are with the Christmas decor packed away but enjoying
the uncluttered rooms.
One of my favorite things...having a fire burning when my family walks in the door.
A few plans for the rest of the week...include taking my sister to her treatments, taking her out for
lunch and then taking down her Christmas tree and packing her
decor away...hoping that by next year she will be well enough to
do it for herself.
A picture for thought...
May your week be full of simple joys and pleasures!!!
