Outside my window...it is very light and bright despite the late hour - the street lights and the snow reflected in the low cloud make it almost like daylight! So different to acreage/ rural living.....I kind of like it though...although I also miss the stars and amazing skies.....and pure darkness...
I am thinking...how nice it was to spend an evening pottering about - getting my craft room sorted and then starting on my winter journal :) The kitchen is so small compared to my old one that it takes just a couple of minutes to straighten up
I am hearing...Laurence in the kitchen downstairs making a cup of tea :) Susannah in the sitting room watching tv....the strange clicking noise that happens when the sink downstairs is used...
I am thankful...for a snow day...it was perfect timing and exactly what we needed :)
In the kitchen...Abigail baked oatmeal muffins for breakfast today, and I made potato and bacon soup in the crockpot - which we had with buns for supper - and it was AMAZING!!! Abigail says it's her favourite supper - we all had several bowls full and we have some to heat up for lunch tomorrow too :) Then supper tomorrow night is sweet and sour meatballs with rice :)
I am wearing...my nighty - I'm in bed waiting for melatonin to kick in!
I am creating...a home :) A winter journal :) a future :)
I am going...to have to get organized and prep for tomorrow nights group - it's my week to run it!!
I am wondering...how long it will take the birds to notice the bird feeders I put out this morning...
I am hoping...I find my diary tomorrow - I need it and can't seem to find it in any of the boxes we go through :(
I am looking forward to...having all the unpacking done! There isn't much left really but it will be good to have the garage empty so we can park in it!!
I am learning...how overwhelming the old house was - the size and upkeep and age of it...how it was just too much...and how much easier my life already is since moving :)
Around the house...we are turning the house into a home - something I LOVE to do...and it was so nice yesterday when Susannah commented on how nice it was looking and what a great job I have done of making it homely :)
I am pondering...what to do about my classes - I've had so many people ask me about teaching and whether I am still having classes...I do love teaching....just not sure whether to....
One of my favorite things...being around the horses at the stables - hhmmm I want to learn to ride!!!
A few plans for the rest of the week: swimming (for free too yay!!) going to homeschool group tomorrow night, having a friend visit us for coffee on Friday, then spending the afternoon at T's for 'Beauty 101 class' lol!!! Susannah has Cassie staying on Saturday.....not sure what plans we have for the weekend yet....NEED to find my diary!!!
