Outside my window….there is snow – again! Yes, it is beautiful as it is coming down. Yes, I enjoyed a “snow day” at home with Hubbie. Honestly, though, I have had my fill of snow. I am dreaming of daffodils, yellow forsythia and spring!!
I am thinking…about my Valentine’s party I have planned for next week. Who says those are just for kids??
I am thankful for…God’s promises of Heaven and knowing one day I will see Tyler and many others once again!
I am wearing…something to work out in. I am actually going to work out this morning – and three times this week…if it kills me (and it just might!)
I am remembering…my sweet friend, Tammie – another grieving mommy. Her three-year old, Ben, went to Heaven two years ago next week. I know these days leading up to that Heaven birthday are painfully filled with so many memories.
I am going…to the grocery store today and none too soon. The cupboards are looking pretty bare.
I am reading….back issues of Better Homes and Garden magazines that Susan gave me before she moved. I’ve never really read this magazine – and I don’t know why because I am really enjoying all the decorating tips, hints and ideas.
I am hoping..the possibility of more snow this week is just a joke!
On my mind….Tyler – and Ben, and Nick, and Amy, and Andrew, and Mallory…..
From the kitchen…I am trying several new recipes this week. Could be a good thing, or..a not so good thing??
Around the house…there are hardwood floors that need to be cleaned – again. Thank you snow. Oh, and the cold weather gear that never seems to make it from “in front of the fireplace to dry out” to the coat closet where it actually belongs!
Plans for the week…a “Paint your Heart Out” for our Ladies’ Day Out this month. No, I am not artsy or creative – at all – but painting pottery with your friends sure sounds like a lot of fun.
One of my favorite things…my down comforter. It was originally my mother’s and is the sink down into and get lost kind that is so wonderful – especially on these bitter cold winter nights. Not only is it incredibly snuggly but it brings back wonderful memories of Mom!
