FOR TODAY … 24 November 2008
Outside My Window… very gray skies on the wake of a mild/moderate snowstorm yesterday. We received about four inches and will probably see another two inches today.
I am thinking… that I have a lot do to today!
I am thankful for… the pleasant dinner with my parents and 91-year-old grandmother. We’re a small family, but close. 🙂
From the kitchen… leftovers from the abovementioned dinner. 😉
I am wearing… a gray knit tunic with sequins, black slacks, black boots.
I am creating… still stitching on my sampler quilt.
I am going… to the store today as I have nothing here in the office for lunch. 😦 With the overnight snow, I wanted to leave the house early and get started on my commute, but forgot to pack food. 😉
I am reading… The Mother Tongue ~ English and How It Got That Way (very interesting… and funny!)
I am hoping… that the roads are properly cleared from today’s snow before I have to commute home later.
I am hearing… guys talking several offices down, traffic outside.
Around the house… just a little laundry to do.
One of my favorite things… Sitting in my living room on snowy evenings with a warm beverage, having lit all two dozen candles or so LOL!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… taking my mother-in-law to the Detroit Institute of Arts on Friday. I’m not proud of a lot in Detroit, but that is a world-class museum. 🙂
My Picture Thought … this was much what our world looked like this morning, except we have no sun LOL! From Danish artist Anders Andersen-Lundby (1841-1923):
The Simple Woman is the original home of
The Simple Woman’s Daybook.
The Simple Woman’s Daybook will take place each Monday.
Here’s how to take part:
1. Write up and publish your journal page using the questions/picture ideasI have listed below onto your blog. Be as descriptive as you can! This makes it more interesting to your readers. (You may cut and paste them for the purpose to participate in The Simple Woman’s Daybook.)
2. Copy the “permalink” from your “The Simple Woman’s Daybook” post, not the link to the front page of your blog. This will make it much easier for others to find instead of looking through the entire list of entries at your blog for your “daybook”. This will save time for all of us.
3. Come back here and add your permalink to Mister Linky.
That is a stunning picture! I guess I have a new book to add to my reading list lol.
Good morning April!
Ooohhh…I just left 70 degree and sunny weather. It’s sunny and cool here. But no snow in sight, that I know of.
Glad you had a good time with your parents and Gram…how was your Danish Thanksgiving?
Ohhhh, sikke et smukt billede.
Præcist som en smuk vinterdag..sne på træerne, vindstille, bækkens stille rislen og aftensolen, der farver himlen med sin dybe røde farve.
Jeg kan se, at I også får snevejr resten af ugen og sol på søndag, så må I finde skiene og sneskovlene frem :o)
Lyder hyggeligt med familiemiddagen.
Vi er jo også kun en håndfuld, men så kan alle nå at få taletid i løbet af aftenen ;oD
Hope you’ve been feeling ok…been quiet.
Hey girlie… just distracted this week, and a little rough around the edges. 😉 I’m not doing great with the diminished sunlight either. Ah well… just sitting back with a nice cup of tea.
Thanks for checking on me. 🙂
Gitte, we still have the snow, but it is no longer so pretty LOL! It’s gotten quite cold as well, about -9 C. this morning. Love to your family, and a kiss for V. 😉
