The Simple Woman’s Day Book: January 5th, 2009

5 Jan

For today, January 5th, 2009

Outside my window: The day is overcast and cloudy. It is supposed to start snowing any minute. It has been very cold. I think the temperature right now is about 12-degrees. I don’t mind the snow or cold as long as the sun comes out every few days. It was very sunny on Saturday so I guess it can be cloudy today…

I am thinking: I am so happy and thrilled to have discovered this blogging world. The mail came today and I received a package from my darling friend Marie of Oak Cottage with five of her beautiful, whimsical, sweet cards. Marie is so talented and such a wonderful friend. I also received a card from my friend Miranda (A.K.A. Duckie, from A Duck in her Pond). Duckie is also a very special friend and is a wonderful writer. She has a book of fantastic Christmas stories that I was lucky enough to order and I love them. I also received a package from Zenni Optical. I blogged about them in September. I will let you know tomorrow what was in the package…

I am thankful for: I am so thankful for my cute little family. We had such a wonderful Christmas with our family, gradparents, aunts, uncles and of course the cousins. What a magical Christmas we enjoyed. It is sad that Christmas is over, but our relationships are a blessing. I am so thankful for family in my life.

From the kitchen: I am trying to get rid of all of the sugar and bad things that have accumulated over the holidays. Of course that means I am eating all of it (lol). I am going to try to make it to the grocery store. I am working on getting some healthy recipes to make this week. I love making soup in the crockpot. So that is what I will probably make tomorrow night.

We had a really wonderful lesson yesterday in our church women’s auxiliary meeting. We are adopting the 12-step program and applying it to our lives this year. I was trying to figure out which weakness I needed to work on. I made a New Year’s resolution to give up sugar. Then last night I was online checking some blogs and I ate an entire roll of life savers. That resolution didn’t last long. I am thinking that I need to start learning about that program to help me with this sugar problem…

I am wearing: I am wearing my usual uniform: jeans,a shirt and boots. I live in my jeans because they are so comfortable. The top I am wearing is a turquoise thermal hoodie with cute little fabric-covered buttons. Since it is so cold, I probably should have worn a sweater today but I will soon be putting on my coat to go take Ella to the doctor’s for her annual birthday check-up.

I am creating: Gosh, I have been so busy with Christmas that I haven’t been making much lately. One of my friends is helping with a charity drive and has asked me to design a necklace for an auction. I have a pretty good idea in my head of what I am going to make so maybe later I can get my jewelry supplies out and begin making that.

I am going: I am taking Ella in for her doctor’s appointment in about 10 minutes and then my other daughter has an orthodontist appointment. Then I am going to try to make it to the grocery store.

I am reading: Jeff got me a John Grisham book for Christmas. I was working on the Twilight Series and was about to beign the last book, but I got derailed by this John Grisham one. I am almost through with it. I enjoy John Grisham but I find that most of his books are basically the same and I get a little bored…

I am hoping… That everyone remains healthy. Ella and I had strep and are on antibiotics and my mom is down with a bad cold. I hope that everyone rallies and feels better. It seems like there is a bad strain of the flu going around. I hope we don’t get that…

I am hearing: We rented a video for Ella from Blockbuster over the weekend. Max and Ruby. She is watching a disk with like 10 episodes. I will be glad to turn that off and head out to the doctors soon.

Around the house: I spent the morning working on cleaning the house. It is all vacuumed, dusted, bathrooms cleaned, counters wiped off and shelves de-cluttered. It feels so clean and fresh. Of course it will probably stay that way until the other three children come home, but it feels great right now.

A few plans for the rest of the week: I’m trying to get back into the routine of real life *sigh*. The kids headed off to school this morning. I am in charge of a program over at the school and so I will probably be spending a lot of time this week over there working on the program. I am hoping to go on a date with Jeff this weekend. I want to see the new Brad Pitt movie: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. So maybe we will be able to do that. If you have seen it, let me know what you thought. Is it worth seeing?

Here is a picture thought I am sharing: We made it to the doctors. Everything went well.
