The Simple Woman's Daybook - January 26, 2009

MONDAY, JANUARY 26, 2009

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW...
Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, and beautiful blue skies! With the threat of incoming winter weather, I'm enjoying this beautiful day as much as possible!

I AM THINKING...
what a blessed life I have!

I AM THANKFUL FOR...
my sweet friends

FROM THE KITCHEN...
On the menu tonight is pasta in white wine & clam sauce with fresh asparagus.

I AM WEARING...
All black. Black blouse, black pants, black shoes...yikes...kind of depressing!

I AM CREATING...
a space to be creative! We're working on a little studio area for my husband and me.

I AM GOING...
to visit blogs through the One World ~ One Heart giveaway. It's wonderful!

I AM READING...
a novel by Homer Hickam

I AM HOPING...
that we'll get all our furniture moved out of our bedroom this week so that the workers can get started on refinishing our hardwood floors on Friday!

I AM HEARING...
Antonio Vivaldi: 12 Sonatas Op.2 for Violin (Sonata in D major) performed by Walter Reiter

AROUND THE HOUSE...
all is as quiet as a mouse (the way we like it!)

ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
My Burpee Seed clock that hangs in my laundry room (see previous posts on Laundry Room Remodel)

A FEW PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK...
Art class on Thursday, moving furniture in preparation for floor refinishing and work, work, work at Sewanee

MY PICTURE THOUGHT...

They're thinking "Isn't it time for Spring yet?!?!" And I'm replying, "Oh, how I wish!" They LOVE to go outside and play at our nearby park, chasing tennis balls and playing with neighborhood children. All of us are dreaming of Spring...

Ooh, that's a lovely post. I'm going to steal it. What kind of art are you doing?

Yes, I agree with Janet this is a wonderful post. It really gives a feeling for what your life is like.

We have two pups also and they are our babies. That's such a great shot of your pups!

Thanks so much for linking to our site also! We have one back here so hooray!

Glad to hear you've been blessed with mild weather it's been nice here too. Hard to believe all these brilliant blue skies in January. : )

Dear Paula,

I am playing catch up as I have been running my husband's business for the past couple of weeks! (he was out of town) I see I have missed quite a bit of your loveliness! I love your daybook entries!

Blessings,
Selia
