The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY March 30, 2009

Outside my window...
Outside my window there is still somewheres between 18 and 24 inches of
snow on the ground. We were hit with a spring blizzard on Friday and
Saturday. Some of the drifts are three
or more feet high. Brought our town to
it's knees on Saturday. Things are starting to move again!

I am thinking...
I am thinking that spring is sure taking a long time coming this year.

I am thankful for...
I am thankful for the electricity. Last year when we had an ice storm we lost our
power for 7 whole days. At least
this time we had power and heat.

From the kitchen...
From the kitchen today came our Sunday special of fried chicken,
mashed potatoes, chicken gravy, broccoli with cheese sauce and
cranberry sauce. The kids really love this meal and they like to help
fix it.

I am wearing...
I am wearing my pajamas because when I post this I am headed to bed.

I am creating...
Oh how sad it is that I am not creating a dang thing yet. I am planning
on painting a cabinet soon, does that count.

I am going...
I am going to be glad to go back to work tomorrow. After three days of
being cooped in the house with kids and husband I am ready to get away.

I am reading...
I am reading Night Passage by Robert B Parker. It is a Jesse Stone Novel.

I am hoping...
I am hoping that winter weather is now behind us.

I am hearing...
I am hearing the 10 o'clock news on the TV coming from the other room.

Around the house...
Around the house I used the vacuum cleaner this weekend to get a lot of
dust and cobwebs from the ceilings and
baseboards. And I completely cleaned
the living room. (again)

One of my favorite things...
One of my favorite things is seeing the greens of my hostas poking through
the ground. And now they are covered with snow.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Working on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have an appointment to
get my haircut on Tuesday. My youngest son and his daughter will
be here on Tuesday and Wednesday. Hoping for a day of relaxation
on Thursday!

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

My patio as it looked today.....won't be sitting out there anytime soon!

  1. I'm sending spring vibes your way!

  2. That snow will melt's almost April for goodness sakes. Don't look back on my blog, though, to see how long snow lasted in my corner last year. It's depressing. Can we call this lastest stuff of yours "poor man's fertilizer"?


I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
