Monday #2/2009, January 12th

Outside my Window…The wind is blowing and the snow drifts are drifting under gray skies and a light snow.
I am thinking…
that the coffee better be ready soon!

From the learning rooms…
nothing this week.
I am thankful for…my wonderful loving hubby who is taking the time to help me finish so many of the indoor projects this past week as well as this one.
From the kitchen…we will have some blueberry banana crunch, apple rolls and some Texas Hash this week.
I am wearing…my favorite Levi’s and my Harley Davidson Kansas T-shirt
I am reading…The Quilter’s Kitchen by Jennifer Chiaverini & The Secret’s in the Sauce, The Potluck Catering Club by Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson
I am hoping…that we can finish this weeks projects efficiently and keep moving forward so that we can make an informed decision in the spring.
I am creating…a new quilt for the quilt hanger that goes up after the stairwell walls are done.
I am hearing…
the sweet sound of nothing! I love the quiet moments of the morning that I can call my own before this place comes to life!
Around the house… With the cold front approaching I do not plan to leave this house at all this week and our plans are to finish texture coating the walls in Amber’s room and the stairwell and getting it all painted.

One of my favorite things…Crossing lots of things off my many to do lists.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… and reworking a few more recipes – having the oven on helps heat the kitchen.
Here is the picture thought I am sharing with you…

I see these trees regularly, but they never look the same. depending on the sun, the wind, the snow… Do you ever really wonder how awe inspiring the beauty of this world is?

Monday #1/2009, January 5th
Outside my Window… The clouds full of snow are looming low and are much grayer than normal making it look so much earlier than it is.
I am thinking…
that I need to seriously concentrate on MY quality time with myself and accomplishing a specific goal each week as well as some of my UFOs (Unfinished Fabric Objects) to ease my sense of overwhelming.
From the learning rooms…
nothing this week.
I am thankful for…my husband’s volunteer work issue being sorted out last week, FINALLY!! They were taking advantage of him and he finally realized it. One of those guy things, he needed to figure it out for himself. Also that Eric will be home for a few days. He and his dad will have some ‘guy’ time together.
From the kitchen…For breakfast maple and brown sugar oatmeal with golden raisins and coffee for me, lunch will be out after bowling league and dinner will be Country Chicken & Rice.
I am wearing…my favorite Levi’s and my West Yellowstone, Embalmer’s Beer T-shirt.
I am reading…Suddenly by Barbara Delinsky
I am hoping…to finish organizing the front coat closet as well as the closet where we store the holiday decorations and the basement this week.
I am creating…a mess while I reorganize the quilting supplies trying to simplify the studio.
I am hearing…
the last few percolations from the coffee pot YAY!! I need coffee!!
Around the house… A house to be cleaned, a ceiling to be repaired from the shower leak and lots of trim molding and painting.

One of my favorite things…Is my quiet morning time with just my thoughts.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… With Eric home, the plans are up in the air and going to be spontaneous, but I do plan to finish a few recipes and maybe a quilt.
Here is the picture thought I am sharing with you…


I guess we are no where near Spring yet.
