Simple Woman's Daybook - April 6

For Today... April 6, 2009

Outside my window... SNOW! Again! And a LOT of it!

I am thinking... about my left foot. It hurts. The top of it, not the bottom. Also wondering when I should get groceries and if I can finagle a trip to Target to buy the Bolt DVD for 13.99. Anyone going to Target?

From the learning rooms... It's Spring Break!

I am thankful for... the determination to lose weight.

From the kitchen... Bob is making macaroni and cheese for lunch. I'll have soup. The girls need to make cakes for their club meeting tomorrow night. They will be doing cake decorating.

I am wearing... navy lounge pants, long-sleeved grey t-shirt, my fleece robe, and slippers (Well, that's what I WAS wearing when I started writing this.)

I am reading... Reading Daniel Deronda by George Eliot for book club. Listening to A Thousand Splendid Suns (Khaled Hosseini) on audiobook. Also slowly perusing a book on 100 great vacations around the world. Going to start reading The Great Brain or maybe A Bear Called Paddington to the kids at lunchtime. (Hey, that's the same as last week!)

I am hoping... The snow melts quickly. Supposed to be in the 50's by Thursday.

I am creating... letters to send out to my soccer players about practice and games.

I am hearing... James whining that I won't let him go out right now because we are getting ready to eat lunch.

Around the house... I dragged out all the stuff I have stashed away for sale - mostly books. Need to make it disappear.

One of my favorite things... Youtube!

A few plans for the rest of the week... No Lessons! It's Spring Break! Working (scoring essays) Mon-Fri whenever I can find time, Tuesday we are going to a friend's house for Movie Day and the girls have Keepers club, Friday Bob has a job counseling appt at Michworks, Weekend plans are still up in the air. Maybe the free matinee Saturday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

I think we're going to try and make it in to the 10a show for "Tales of Despereaux" on Saturday too! Hope to see you there. What time do you think we should get in line? 9:30 or 9?

Nice pic - you uploaded it big! We didn't have any snow over here.

The snow is pretty, isn't it? I'm glad it is only temporary!
