Outside my window … clear blue skies with a hint of pink peeking through the trees, and frost of the ground. _uacct = “UA-4888259-1″;urchinTracker();
I am thankful for … patient medical care yesterday, and an overwhelming positive response to our HAWT Mama/J’Adore Dance partnership! For Sherrie taking my bugz all day while I was at the ER with breathing trouble, and for backrubs from Leith after a long day of laboured breathing. For sweet bugz, who were so tired that they slept from 5:30 last night until 7am this morning!!
I am also thankful for … those who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, both past and present, overseas and in our own backyards.
I am thinking … about how much fun it was to build up anticipation this past week, and how much fun it will be to continue to collaborate with my best friend and an incredible team of women as we move forward in this partnership
I am creating … holiday gift to-do lists. Homemade gifts require a lot of planning and shopping ahead of time!
I am celebrating … SO MUCH! This newly launched partnership is so fantastic. I’ve been celebrating it every day, and now that we’ve made the announcement, we need to have an official celebration
From the kitchen … barely anything! Grocery shopping on Friday will be epic … I haven’t been in a loooooong time, and it’s getting bare. Leith did make a combination soup the other night that was fabulous though: minestrone soup with (added) black beans, shredded chicken, sauteed onions and melted swiss cheese on top. YUM!
I am wearing … jammies while I wait for the bugz to finish breakfast so we can get ready for dance class!!
I am reading … Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Again, lol.
I am hoping … to feel better. They couldn’t find anything “wrong” with me at the ER yesterday, but I’ve been having trouble breathing. I feel a lot better than I did yesterday, but it’s still not 100%. And it’s frustrating, so I hope I’m back to normal soon!!’
I am also hoping … that C-boo (poops) soon! We’ve taken her to the doctor again, and she’s taking 10g of laxative powder, 2tsp of mineral oil jelly, prune juice and a high-fibre diet every day, and still nothing. What on earth??
I am hearing … a bit of whining (grrr!) and the news report on the radio. Oooh, and the furnace
I am going … to take my bugz to Intellidance Tots today and *maybe* a couple dance classes tonight. I really want to go to Bikram on Wednesday too, but I’m supposed to be “relaxing”. Sigh…
Around the house and yard … our humidifier is finally installed, so it’s not so dry in here! The yard is ready for snow and so am I – my new garage door opener is also installed, which means I can use my car starter this winter Last year, I had to go outside and manually open the garage door, so using the starter seemed a little bit pointless…
One of my favourite things … hot cocoa on a frosty morning! I’m off the caffeine for awhile (*sob*), but this was a tasty, warm treat to start my day Oh, and naked running bugz. LOL!! They insist on taking their pyjamas off after breakfast and run around like naked monkeys. It’s hilarious!!!
A few plans for the rest of the week … visiting Julia at some point, relaxing (sigh…), hopefully a few classes and a Saturday martini-and-caesar party to celebrate!
A quote for today:
It is far sweeter to savour the JOURNEY than to rush towards the RESULT
