Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, February 8, 2010
Outside my window...a threat of snow again. Yesterday was so foggy that one could barely see to drive, but...
I am thinking...It is all right as I am leaving this morning for sunny California for a few days! Horray!
I am thankful for... the ease with which one can travel today, unlike how hard it was in pioneer days. Even when I was growing up (after the pioneer days!) we never flew anywhere. My first plane ride was when I was in my 20's.
I am wearing...warm clothes for the ride. I am cold by nature so I almost always layer my clothing and take an outside aisle. Plus I am taking and wearing my long winter coat. I am no fool, I looked up the weather and it is not going to be that warm there!
I am remembering...at least I am trying to remember all that I will need to take--clothing, make-up, valentines, kit materials for my class, phone numbers and little gifts for those I stay with.
I am going...to try to blog while I am gone but there is no guarantee.
I am currently reading...House Beautiful magazine because when I went to the library Friday they did not have our bookclub's next book. I am now 548th on the waiting list for A Town Like Alice there. (They do have 250 copies however so I will see how long it takes)
I am hoping... to see lots of friends this week.
On my mind... Valentines Day and all the people that I truly love both in and out of my family. They have such great influence on a person's thoughts and actions. I am truly blessed by knowing and watching such fine examples of love and compassion every day.
Noticing that...the snow is almost melted off my patio today.
Pondering these words... "Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves."
From the kitchen... just finishing a big pot of Chicken Vegetable Soup and Homemade rolls.
Around the house... a few Valentine decorations and a partially packed suitcase.
One of my favorite things... hot Oatmeal cookies from the oven! ("Nothin' says lovin' like somethin' from the oven!")
From my picture journal.
Looking forward to holding and squeezing this one again!
Have a wonderful week!To read more daybook entries click here.
