It is Monday. Today I write in my daybook and link up with The Simple Woman's Blog .(She isn't posting her link up until tomorrow) I will also be including my weekly menu here as I did last week. Then I won't be doing two posts. I have been sick with a head/chest cold (or something) since last Wednesday so we didn't much follow last weeks menu and you might just see things repeated because that is how I grocery shopped and I have all the ingrediants.....Here we go:
FOR TODAY...October 6, 2014
Outside my window...I am writing this just before midnight so it is dark outside. Two nights ago we reached a low of 35* But now only down to the 50's. I like that about fall. Can't make up it's mind!
I am thinking...I don't know if this is a safe subject. To tell people what I am thinking. I am thinking about my husband. And how much I miss him. And how mad I am that he is gone.
I am thankful...I am thankful for Justin and Paige and Darian and Harley and how just having them here sometimes gives me a reason to get up and go on.
In the kitchen...
Monday...Loaded Baked Potato Soup*
Tuesday..Omelets with Toast
Wednesday..Kids at church
Thursday..Macaroni, Chicken & Cheese
Friday...Meatloaf*, mashed potatoes, broccoli
I am wearing...I always chuckle here. I am wearing yoga pants (shorts) and a purple tee shirt...no shoes. Like always.
I am creating...I am creating this post and my 31 Days Series which you can find here. For today's letter see below this post. That is as creative as I can get right now.
I am going...to paint that room someday. I really am.
I am wondering...I'll be honest with you. I am wondering why I do all of this? Why?
I am reading...What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. Now this is a book to read. It will really makes you wonder what you would do if got to "do-over" your life. I'll do a review when I am done.
I am hoping...to finish the book tonight or tomorrow. I am doing a lot of reading now. I haven't the energy for anything else. Don't know whether it is the cold or grief. But lying on the couch reading is what I'm doing.
I am looking forward to...feeling better.
I am learning...Why I hated being a single mother the first time around.
Around the house...so much, oh, so much.
I am pondering...Where do you start when you don't know where to start?
A favorite quote for today...
One of my favorite things...A Hot toddy. When I am sick. Do you drink Hot Toddys?
A few plans for the rest of the week...this is just another normal week at our house. Nothing special going on.
A Peek into my day...I haven't taken any pictures lately to share with you....I'll have to do that soon.
