For Today…January 25, 2011
Outside my Window…Nighttime and nippy. No snow, though. Wonder if we’ll receive any more this winter?
I am thinking…It’s amazing that I’m doing a blog post again! I need to stay up late to pick up our youngest son after his “away” basketball game, so I have the perfect opportunity to write a little something.
From the learning rooms…I have been learning about exponential equations in the 8th grade math class in which I assist. We’ve also been reviewing scientific notation. This is so much fun!
I am thankful for…each member of our dear family. We’re at that stage in life where the kids are young adults, each one choosing his or her own way. We may need to think about down-sizing soon!
From the kitchen…I tried quite a delicious quiche recipe lately which called for feta cheese and broccoli.
I am wearing…a favorite long-sleeved purple sweater and a black skirt.
I am reading…(just finished re-reading) a favorite novel by Georgette Heyer entitled Frederica.
I am hoping…to bake two birthday cakes for our twin daughters. Laura wants German Chocolate Cake and Sarah wants Carrot Cake. We plan to celebrate their birthdays early, this coming Saturday.
I am creating…this blog post.
I am hearing…Rebecca and Lydia talking in the dining room, with their music in the background.
Around the house…We’ve had so much rain, so things are muddy and mossy. Our lawn is almost more moss than grass, it seems.
One of my favorite things…is straightening up the house at the end of the day. It’s cheering to awaken to an orderly house (for me, at least).
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…I need to visit my elderly mom at the Christian Health Care Center, and run errands after that. High school basketball is also on the agenda, since both Lydia and Seth are participating.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…

Are you content to linger on the simple things of life…then join me in taking a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those of us who are focusing on simplicity…the beauty of the everyday moments around us. That is my vision for this idea!
