Outside my window... The sun is shining on the bright, white snow that we woke up to. It was quite unexpected, but quite welcome!
I am thinking... about the activities of the week. It's already feeling full.
I am thankful for... a husband and friend who drive kids to school when it's snowy and cold. And for some hopeful news about Joanne!
I am wearing... plaid pajama pants and my dad's Arkansas sweatshirt.
I am remembering... that last Monday morning our beagle was wearing a cone and recovering from an unfortunate situation. Jack-the-beagle had a follow-up appointment earlier this morning and things are healing but he needs another round of antibiotics to fully clear things up. He actually didn't have to wear his cone for very long. The vet let us take it off since he's overweight and there's no possible way he could reach "back there" because of his size. We're working on getting his weight down.
I am going... to meet a friend for coffee later today before I begin my carpool rounds. It's the perfect day for it.
I am currently reading... Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I am hoping... to finally meet Amber this week. More on that later.
On my mind... I need to schedule a doctor's appointment for some "issues" that keep cropping up.
Noticing that... the calendar indicates that my son will be fourteen in a couple of weeks. And he wants some kind of party with his friends to celebrate. Guess I need to get it in gear.
Pondering these words... "on the third day". Bible study last week piqued my interest in this phrase and I noticed it again yesterday while saying the creed in church. Would love to do a little digging around in the Word for more instances of it's use and all that it means. Anyone have some extra time they can lend me?
In the kitchen... Well, so far this morning I've cleaned out my refrigerator, prepped all the meat for the meals on my menu plan, and figured out what we're having for dinner. Was thinking about making a batch of refrigerator bran muffins but I think I'll wait until tomorrow.
Around the house... Mondays are usually my designated domestic day. Seems I need this day to bring order back to our home after everyone being at home all weekend. I'll be cleaning bathrooms, mopping, dusting, vacuuming, etc. Lucky me.
One of my favorite things... Well, one of my new favorite things is this bath pillow I bought last week. Makes reading in the tub so much more enjoyable, not to mention COMFORTABLE!
