FOR TODAY … 17 March, 2009  (Kiss me, I’m Irish LOL!)

Outside My Window… blue skies, almost green grass (as opposed to brown) and rapidly warming temps – yay!!!!

I am thinking… that while I know today’s sun and warmth do not mean we won’t get a last blast of winter, I’m grateful for it anyway LOL!

I am thankful for… hubby’s safe return home after 2.5 weeks in Florida.

From the kitchen… the split pea and ham soup I made while hubby was gone; I froze a bunch for him as requested.  😉

I am wearing… denim shirt with leopard-print trim and beadwork, black slacks.

I am creating… not a lot; extremely busy at home and the office!

I am going… to Whole Foods tonight for some groceries and supplements.

I am reading… back issues of “Mary Jane’s Farm” magazine.

I am hoping… that our bank auditor finally leaves this week.  Any longer will qualify as permanent residence.  ;P

I am hearing… traffic and the hum of fluorescent lightbulbs.

Around the house… catching up on laundry, especially from hubby’s trip.

One of my favorite things… the first 70-degree day of spring.  You know, like today LOL!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… all business, personal and work.  I went to renew my driver’s license last week and found out I could not; a “new” law says that the name on my DL and my social security ID must match, and they do not.  It’s never been a problem that I didn’t change my name 15 years ago after marrying until now.  I even got my passport two years ago with no problem!  So, I can travel internationally but cannot drive legally in my own state *rolling eyes*.  I’m trying to gather all my documents and hassle with the SSA now, before I can go back to the State with my driver’s license stuff.

My Picture Thought … a Florida sunset fighting for space with an incoming storm, from the beach where my in-laws’ condo is.  Hubby was just there, helping put it back together after extensive renovations.  I love this place; can you see why?  🙂

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.
