Outside The Window…
It seemed as though we were going to go without the joy of sunshine again today, but mid-afternoon the wind blew the clouds out and the sun peaked through for a bit. I took an opportunity to go skiing while the kids were eating lunch and CJ was napping. The girls and Joe had been out earlier, so I was looking forward to following a nice trail. Little did I realize the wind had covered everything. I also had no wax on my skiis for the conditions – what a fiasco! I couldn’t stop slipping for anything. Guess I’ll have to snowshoe until I get those skiis waxed.

From the learning rooms…
Art – We have some local ladies who make beaded servingware paired with serving dishes, etc. like this, and we were admiring their work that was for sale in the beauty salon yesterday. Today, the girls decided they wanted to try their hand at it, and I must say the results were quite good!

Although I can’t believe all the art supplies that accumulate sometimes, it is good to have the right things on hand when inspiration strikes. I’m quite sure that if I had to run and get supplies the next time I went to town, the motivation would’ve passed and the girls wouldn’t have tried this project (more than likely anyway).

From the kitchen…

    Menu

Breakfast – cereal for all today, except for me…I had my favorite egg drink.
Lunch – Chicken nuggets, clementines and apple slices w/peanut butter, chocolate milk (I wasn’t hungry, so I had a couple snacks of nuts today and coconut oil)
Supper – Chicken noodle soup or Chicken parmesan

Today’s “To Do” List…
I actually don’t have a real plan for today – just going to enjoy being home and work about getting things done

Thinking ahead…
I’m hoping everyone can get to confession tomorrow.

Random thoughts…
Heard a new song today that I liked. Here’s the link.

Outside The Window…
At 20 degrees this morning, it finally feels downright balmy! Fog hanging in the air, trees are still beautiful, dozens of finches and juncos are still feeding. Our dog, Tillie, if she’s bored, pretends she has to go out just so she can chase the birds off the porch. This could get old real fast…

From the learning rooms…
Instrument practice and co-op class for EE today. Ranger Rick came in the mail and everyone’s excited. It will make the rounds to everybody today, I’m sure. We will be gone into town for most of the day, so nothing else scheduled.

B – toast and cereal, kids. Although I’m a firm believer in breakfast, Joe and I are passing today because it is final weigh-in day for the 12 week fitness program going on at Joe’s work. We want to weigh in as light as possible – we’ve got our eye on the prize and we’ve got a shot at it! I’ll try to post final weight loss totals for us and maybe even a before and after pic if I can get to it.

Today’s “To Do” List…
Any available time left today goes towards trying to pick up this house!

Thinking ahead…
My DH doesn’t ask for much, but he’s made a request. He wants several pairs of pants hemmed…NOW. Tomorrow is the day – I must do this for him.

Random thoughts…
I wish we didn’t have so much “stuff,” but when I try to pare down, it seems we “need”, or find useful, or might find useful, all our “stuff”! 🙂

Here is picture thought I am sharing…

Thank you God for…
“What are you thankful for, AJ?”
“Well, food, of course!”
Ah, yes – this from the son who is always saying he’s hungry!
