Monday's Simple Woman's Daybook

For today - Jan 11th 2010

Outside my window... was a much nicer & warmer day than what we've had last week! 37 degrees this afternoon instead of 5. The snow is melting and the cars need washed.

I am thinking... how beautiful the snow has been :) in spite of the below zero temps. People just need to know how to dress for the season and to thrive wherever they're at.

I am thankful for... chapstick!

I am wearing... warm flannel jammies and silky red slippers

I am remembering... how nice it is to blog and plan and be organized. Goal for this new year is to get on top of this better.

I am going... to meet some sweet ladies for coffee our local McDonalds since it has a indoor playland for our wee ones.

I am currently reading... getting ready to start a new parenting book and Bev Lewis' The Missing.

I am hoping... Logan really grasps the idea of going #2 inside the stool this week :(

On my mind... that ripping a fingernail off takes precidence over every other thought on your mind. ooeeeeeeeee

Noticing that... everyone else is in their warm & toasty beds! I want to be warm & toasty too!

Pondering these words... "God, help me treasure each moment for its own sake."

From the kitchen... Fred's b'day dinner pot & pans that wouldnt fit in the dishwasher. And a big tray of huge cinnamon rolls that a dear lady brought by.

Around the house... baby rattles, burp rags, remote control cars, stray crayons.

One of my favorite things...bosom buddies. No distance or time ever can seperate that bond of friendship.

From my picture journal...

Weekly Menu Plan

This week's planned by a six year old :)

Mon - today was my husband's birthday. We actually had steaks, fried potatoes, gravy, corn on the cob, homemade sourdough bread...but as you can see, the highlight was "cake".
Tues - Hoping to try a new nacho recipe that I saw a friend make. All pile up on a huge platter. Oooey gooey sauce. I'll post it later.
Wed -Catalina Cranberry Chicken, rice, salad
Thur - She says spaghetti...I'm thinking probably leftovers
Fri - our Family Night - homemade pizza and a movie or games
Sat - we have recently started enjoying the lazy saturday brunch tradition. don't know how often it will work, but its been very nice :)
Sun - Salami Sub with Olive Salad....a new recipe
I know I usually post my recipes and a nicer plan, I will post these later in the week (if they're good) Trying to get back into the routine of things. A new year!
