It's been awhile since I linked up and did a daybook entry and today felt like the perfect time to express some of my thoughts this way. If interested in participating or just reading other entries, please visit Peggy's site here
Outside my window: It is sunny and beautiful!
I am thinking: Quite a few things, but my heart is sad today after hearing about a school bus crash that claimed the life of a little girl who is one of triplets. The 2 other girls are in critical condition and my heart is going out to their parents. Hugged my girls extra, extra tight this morning.
I am thankful: That my girls are happy and healthy and that I was blessed to have them after years of trying. That I have a husband who loves and supports us and works so very hard. I appreciate him every day.
In the kitchen: Simply prepared foods as we will be away for a few days, veggies and fruit with sandwiches.
I am wearing: Jeans and a blue sweater with my walking shoes! ;-)
I am creating: crafts to do with the girls in the upcoming days :-)
I am going: to run errands, take Kathleen to dance this afternoon and heading out for a trip to MD!
I am wondering: Why my cat likes to play with puff pom poms so much, lol!
I am reading: Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz, Two special education books for college, Push by Chalene Johnson Quite a combination there of literature! ;-)
I am hoping: That a cure is found and used for cancer, and that it does not take a loved one of ours too soon, that he can fight this battle somehow and win. I HATE CANCER! I hate the people it has taken from me too soon.
I am looking forward to: Seeing family and friends this weekend. Living far away makes this hard on a regular basis :-(
I am learning: So much! I enjoy my studies in education as well as all I've been learning on fitness and nutrition! Life is a learning process each and every day in so many ways! :-)
Around the house: I am preparing lists of areas to reorganize and items to list on EBay.
I am pondering: The many ideas I have for my project life scrapbook, needing to order some more supplies and hoping I can move past the last page I completed...when Patrick (my brother in law) passed away last April. Haven't been able to flip back to that page and go forward.
Favorite quote today: "Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead" Louisa May Alcott.
One of my favorite things: The mother's ring Jerry and Hayley designed for me (Kathleen was an infant at the time)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Paperwork, selecting new classes at the YMCA, schoolwork, organizing, errands, exercising and so much more!
A peek into my day: So far I have stripped and remade all the beds, working on laundry, cleaned bathrooms, packed for weekend, cleaned kitchen, cleaned the car, ran to the bank, went to the post office to mail Kris's box of goodies she won, balanced the checkbook, blogging and that's just this morning! When Kathleen comes home it will be providing her with a nutritious lunch, homework she has, reading books together, fun activities, running out to do errands, rushing back getting Hayley from school, going to dance class, getting dinner and heading out to Md. after loading the car....whew and a few things in between! Never a dull moment here!
So those are my thoughts for today, a nice way I thought to end the week. Looking forward to the long weekend and hoping Jerry and I get an evening out while we are staying at my mom's. We are long overdue for a couple's night! LOL
Have a wonderful weekend!!
