for today...

outside my window... 53F & overcast
i am thinking... it's Fat Tuesday, and I forgot to make doughnuts!
i am thankful for... faschnachts
i am wearing... blue jeans, an animal print shirt & my Birkies
i am going... to the grocery store, boring, I know, but I need to buy ingredients for
Ash Wednesday's dinner, and the faschnachts 
i am currently reading... the NY Times
i am hoping... it doesn't snow this weekend, although it's going to be COLD again
on my mind... gas @ $2.45/gallon, milk @ $2.40/gallon, sugar @ $1.89/4 lb
pondering these words... "here's what you should do; love the earth and the sun and the animals" 
~ Walt Whitman ~
from the kitchen... french onion soup, on the menu tomorrow
around the house... a sink full of dishes awaits me *sigh*
one of my favorite things...  signs of Spring, the blackbirds have returned
i'm creating... February Challenge layouts @ The Lilypad
a few plans for the weekend...  a trip to Wellsville NY

from my lens:
Dave & Ronna's ducks

for today...

outside my window... 15F *brrrr*
i am thinking... it's great to be online again, catching up with my bff Amanda in Australia,
and happily updating my Dear Bloggy!
i am thankful for... a new HP all-in-one PC, and a cellphone... although there is still no cellphone service
here in the middle of nowhere *sigh*
i am wearing... black jeans, thermal shirt, fleece pullover, and mukluks
i am going... to the Agway for birdseed and suet cakes 
i am currently reading... recently delivered seed catalogs *anxiously awaiting spring*
i am hoping... for a warm weekend, to sweep the porches & clean up fallen tree limbs
on my mind... gas @ $2.54/gallon, milk @ $2.45/gallon, sugar @ $1.99/4 lb
pondering these words... "when you discover that all happiness is inside you, the wanting and needing are over" ~ Byron Katie ~
from the kitchen... chicken curry, basmati rice, with my homemade Major Grey's Chutney *sweet & spicy*
around the house... down blankets, and bearpaw boots
one of my favorite things... watching the deer frollick about on the hill, then wandering down to the creek for a drink 
i'm creating... One Little Words for 2016 and 2017 posted, a new blog header is finished, and thanks to Deviantart,
my facebook timeline cover has been updated!
a few plans for the week...  firewood delivery, and baked ziti is on the menu this weekend

from my lens:

* down the hill, into the pasture, heading toward the creek *
