FOR TODAY, March 2nd, 2009 …
Outside My Window… It is a little overcast, but warm! I think it is probably 60 degrees out and it’s only about 9 am. So that is very warm. Hopefully the snowdrift in front of my house will melt off and I will be able to see my lawn again! I am thinking… I am thinking about what a wonderful time I had going to my sister’s baby shower! It was so fun to see Ashley and her cute round belly. She is so beautiful and glowing. It was fun to spend time with my mom and of course Wendy too. We had a wonderful time! I love them all so much.
The day before….
One of my mom’s friends – Barbara – had us over to her beautiful home and make the most wonderful lunch for us. Homemade soup, chicken salad and cupcakes. It was delicious. Thank you Barbara! I am thankful for… I am so thankful for my sweet children. Being away from them is always hard. They are so sweet and wonderful! Do you remember the little, precious baby I blogged about last week? Well Gracie is not doing well. It sounds like that sweet baby is slipping away. My heart just aches for that family. From the kitchen… I’ve been gone, so I haven’t had to cook – yay! But I am back now so it’s back to the routine. I think I will make some soup tonight. My kids are probably so sick of soup (I make it all the time – lol).
I am wearing… I am still in my sweats, with crazy sleeping hair and no makeup. I hope no one comes to the door. I might frighten them to death!
I am going… I am gearing up for another busy week. My program over at the elementary school is busy this week every month. So I will spend a lot of time over there. Then Hayley has an orthodontist appointment. Hannah has parent-teacher conferences. And my other mom things.
I am reading… I started reading a really good book set in the year 1699. But I realized that I left it when I was gone on my trip!
I am hoping… For a miracle for Gracie’s family.
I am hearing… Ella’s bare feet padding around the house. She is sitting on the couch next to me eating an apple and not letting me out of her site. She is such a sweet little thing.
Around the house… I am about to get going to clean the house. I need to unpack, clean out my kitchen, vacuum and get things back to normal.
One of my favorite things… I love this blogging world. I am so happy to have met so many wonderful people. I love coming home and checking on everyone. It feels like another sort of family. Thank you for being there for me.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
