A Simple Woman’s Daybook for January 18, 2011 – my first for this new year:)

Outside my window….is an icy wonderland. We had sleet, freezing rain and who knows what else last night and today everything is coated in simmery ice. Now it is no secret that I am overly cautious – actually terrified – of ice (having fallen twice in years past) but with nowhere to go….I am enjoying a warm day at home with my Hubbie!
I am thinking….about the comments you left yesterday – and some of the really weird (read that..yucky) things you guys have eaten! And it all tastes just like chicken!!
I am thankful for….my gas fireplace, cozy winter sweaters, snoozies (my favorite slippers), and my newest Yankee candle – “Gingerbread” – that is filling the house with the nicest aroma!
I am wearing….the above-mentioned cozy sweater and my snoozies – if you don’t have a pair of these slippers, you really should find some….really.
I am remembering….so many little details from last year. I transferred my important dates from last year’s daytimer to this year’s new one (I know, a little late but….) and was noticing all the days and events I noted last year. Several precious friends moving, lots of fun days away with Hubbie and days out with girlfriends, and all the special days I looked so forward to that are now come and gone. Goodness, life goes so quickly.
I am going….absolutely nowhere. That whole ice thing. But it is great to be able to stay home!
I am reading…Made to Crave by Lysa Terkurst – more about that later.
I am hoping….that warm weather will return early this year. This winter has been beyond bitter and I really am too old for all this cold. Last night at work, I put out an entire display of flip-flops?!? Positive thinking, I guess.
On my mind….my sweet friend, Judy, who has a birthday tomorrow! We have been best of friends since fourth grade – yeah, a long time! – and she is a jewel. I hope she has a beautiful day!!
From the kitchen…something with ground chicken since that is what I took out of the freezer this morning. What that something will be – not sure but I’ll figure out before dinner time:)
Around the house….it smells yummy – like gingerbread. And the baseboards are clean – thanks Hubbie! and we are just beginning the newest house “project”…new kitchen counters! HOORAY
Plans for the week….Ladies Day Out is this week – breakfast and then thrift store shopping. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy the thrill of the hunt…for just the perfect treasure…at thrift store and consignment shops??!! 🙂 Can’t wait.
One of my favorite things…..well, let’s see – Yankee candles, snoozies:), birthdays, mornings out with a group of friends, and thrift stores!!
