Today: Jan 6th

Thoughts of the Day

Outside my window: Cold with a light dusting of snow on the ground. Supposed to get colder tonight and tomorrow morning, with wind chills in the -30s!
I am thinking: Making progress on cleaning!
I am thankful: For a warm house!
In the kitchen: Cube steak with shake-n-bake, Annie’s mac & cheese, lettuce salad and peaches. Yum!
I am wearing: black dress pants, green long sleeved tee, red and white striped fuzzy socks, homemade long necklace and Christian’s Christmas gift to me: silver owl necklace.
I am creating: Clean spaces.
I am going: To work and back; to work on homework & make cookies.
I am wondering: How I will be able to make student teaching work. 😦
I am reading: “The Invention of Wings” via audio book.
I am hoping: To get caught up on cleaning by Friday.
I am looking forward to: Planning my garden, buying more trees for the orchard.
I am learning: About curriculum for my studies and about how to play Magic: The Gathering b/c the boys got a few decks for Christmas and want me to play.
Around the house: Organization and purging! I’m caught up on laundry at least!!
I am pondering: What all I have in my freezer to meal plan.
A favorite quote for today: “He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else” Benjamin Franklin.
One of my favorite things: Hugs from the boys when they come home from school, leaving to catch the bus and before they go to bed.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Working 2 more days, working on homework, speaking to a few schools about student teaching, working on my mail pile.
