Outside my window … snow, snow and more snow and -25 degrees with the windchill. Ugh. Does someone want to bring their quad over and snowplough our driveway? _uacct = “UA-4888259-1″;urchinTracker();
I am thankful for … slippers, hot coffee, a warm furnace, cuddly bugz and 2 wood stoves!
I am also thankful for … my new job, my blooming company and some courageous goals for the next 12 months relating to the two!
I am thinking … about all that was supposed to be done today that won’t get done
But I am ALSO thinking about going to see part one of the last Harry Potter movie at midnight tonight! Eeep!!! Hopefully the roads will be a lot clearer and quieter at that time
I am creating … personal and business goals and objectives to achieve in the next year. Yawn – that sounds boring when I write it, but trust me! When I reveal each of my projects, you will be amazed at what I am doing!!!!!! Eeep (again!).
I am celebrating … all those things I’ve just written. I’m also just celebrating life in general right now
And I am celebrating a good prognosis for my mother-in-law!
From the kitchen … dishes. Dishes and dishes and more dishes. I love when Leith makes dinner, but he lacks follow-through
Soon, however, our kitchen will be filled with holiday baking! I stole a bunch of my mom’s recipes last week and I am going to make a shopping list today or tomorrow. Yum!
I am wearing … slippers, sweats and a thermal shirt. It’s chilly by our gigantic, uninsulated patio doors in the kitchen – our wood stove has to fight against this cold.
I am reading … Club Dead, the third Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) book. They are soooooo trashy and bad, but they’re also addictive! I’m ashamed that I enjoy them so much… I wasn’t hooked until the last third of the second book, and then I was all in. Shameful, really…
I am hoping … that the roads are clear by the time Leith gets home tonight! My plans for the day were kiboshed by his insistence that I cannot drive without my winter tires. Rotten man. So here I am, stranded by his love. Either way, I’m taking his truck to Edmonton tonight to see Harry Potter, since it’s big and heavy, and it has 4-wheel drive!
I am hearing … the whir of the furnace fan and Toy Story
playing in the background. Leith bought it for the girls, and I was so excited to see it again. Unfortunately, I don’t really like it as an adult! I’m too girly, I guess
I am going … to enjoy a hot, hot shower this morning! Brrr! I was freezing cold until about 4am this morning, and staring out the window does nothing to maintain my body temperature!
Around the house and yard … snow to shovel. Boo. Maybe that can be my exercise today. I’ll bundle the girls up in their snowsuits while I plough out our ridiculously long driveway by hand. Fun, fun, fun…
One of my favourite things … watching my bugz cuddle their baby dolls in their new mini-ring slings from Cosy Baby, Happy Mommy
! My friend Erin made them for the girls, and they LOVE them. It’s so cute to see them babywearing
A few plans for the rest of the week … teaching in Sherwood Park tonight (maybe!), Harry Potter with Jess and Krista tonight (!!), hopefully visiting Julia and getting some work done tomorrow, Mimi’s second birthday on Saturday and an adult games night afterward, and relaxing on Sunday!
A picture thought I am sharing with you today:
