for today...

outside my window... it's the break of dawn and 22F (still 20 degrees below normal temperatures)
i am thinking... the robins can't get worms through the snow
i am thankful for...sunshine!
i am wearing... my thermal pj's (hey, it's only 6:45am)
i am going... to make rice pudding
i am currently reading... Soup, A Way Of Life by Barbara Kafka
i am hoping... to edit photos this afternoon
on my mind... annoyed that it's forecasted to snow this weekend, again
pondering these words... "kindness is like water, we all need it to survive," which I read on the Kind Over Matter blog, sharing a Kind Kindred post by Michelle Nickolaisen
from the kitchen... no sugar for my coffee *sigh*
around the house... 3 light bulbs need to be replaced
one of my favorite things... fleece hoodies
i'm creating... this week's DigiDare Team submission, due by Thursday
a few plans for the week... a new ADSR challenge will be posted today, grocery shopping, and a visit with my Mom on Thursday and Friday
from my lens:

view from the roof, the day I needed to remove snow from the HughesNet satellite dish (look closely and you will see the little path my feet made) now if I can get someone to lift that 50# flagpole so that I can remove that poor ol'flag *sigh*

you can join the simple woman's daybook where every day is a blank page, and participate in creating a list of the simple things and everyday moments of our daily lives.

Celebrate Life/Family

wow, I can't believe that Season 6 of the Amazing Digiscrapping Race has begun! It feels like I've been waiting a long time for this year's race to begin.

My BFF and racing partner, Amanda has her scrappin' shoes on, and has finished her 1st challenge submission, and I finally finished these up just a bit ago.

a new journaling project

for today...

outside my window... it's snowing and 10F (about 20 degrees below normal temperatures)
i am thinking... I may need to order more firewood
i am thankful for... down blankets
i am wearing... jeans, 2 cotton shirts, an Irish wool sweater and my soft and cuddly Earth slippers
i am going... to check out the new Thrift Store in town
i am currently reading... The Cake Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum
i am hoping... to get some snow shoveled!
on my mind... My Treasured Recipes needs to be redone, a major project!
pondering these words... "The first day of Spring is one thing and the first Spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month." ~ Henry Van Dyke ~
from the kitchen... the smell of coffee brewing
around the house... all the critters are sleeping
one of my favorite things... Perlier White Almond bath/body products
i'm creating... Proof Sheets of an albino robin and the 1st day of Spring
a few plans for the weekend... BBQ ribs, citrus/honey carrots, and parsley new potatoes for dinner with my Mom on Saturday's visit to the Nursing Home, black forest cupcakes, edit photos, and the 1st day of ADSR6
from my lens:
the albino robin I followed around til he flew away!
