One Little Word

it took me awhile to choose my OLW for 2014, but I like it :)

Essence::whatever most sums up the heart and soul of something,
its truest most indispensable qualities

My One Little Words

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

for today...

outside my window... it's snowing, 21F, winter storm tomorrow, 6-8" snow, -5F *sigh*
i am thinking... my 'One Little Word' for 2014 will be "essence"
i am thankful for... my woodstove
i am wearing... blue jeans, cashmere sweater, snow booties
i am going... to Soldiers & Sailors hospital, Wellsboro PA, for an xray of my back & right hip, then off to see my physician to check the radiology results & my vitaminD levels
i am currently reading... "The Shadow Factory," by James Banford
i am hoping... that the weather clears up enough to venture over to Wellsville NY this weekend
on my mind... gas @ $3.45/gallon, milk @ $2.75/gallon, sugar @ $1.99/4 lb
pondering these words... "it's just a constant battle:  me against my body; my passions and my dreams and what I want to do with my life, against what I'm physically able to do. 
~ Austin Carlile, of Mice & Men ~
from the kitchen... pork & sauerkraut dinner tonight, for Good Luck!
around the house... evergreens, holly, poinsettias
one of my favorite things... made Chruschiki's for everyone, and a batch for myself too ~ yum!
oh, and my new Comfy Cushion, for without it, I probably wouldn't be sitting here today
i'm creating... scrapbooking pages & fb timeline cover for January, and a new blog header *done* incorporating the "new" color for 2014, Radiant Orchid
a few plans for the week...  shoveling snow & firewood delivery this weekend
