A Simple Woman's Daybook - January 11th Edition

For Today...

Outside my window... a blanket of white... but it's warming up! 30's this week!
I am thankful... that I seem to be feeling better today!
From the kitchen... leftovers and meats from Alaska (caribou, musk ox, reindeer, and salmon)!
I am wearing... new pj pants (cream colored with blues pine prints) and a light blue t-shirt.
I am creating... a plan for a busy week.
I am going... to see my sister, Emily, on Wednesday! I'm so excited to spend an evening with her and Finley!
I am reading... "An Echo in the Bone" by Diana Gabaldon, and "A Beautiful Mess" by Rick McKinley.
I am hoping... I'm past whatever was wrong with me... I'm ready to feel good and energetic again!
I am hearing... the washer and the dryer... otherwise, quiet.
Some plans for the week... meetings, dinner with a college student, book group, more meetings, small group, open sanctuary, dinner and a movie night... and then a restful weekend, I hope!
One of my favorite things... our 3M gifts from my aunt! She works at 3M, and every year sends us bags of post-it notes, band-aids, dish scrubbies, tape, etc. I love my varieties of post-it notes!
A picture thought I am sharing: our cedar-plank mashed potatoes. Yum-a-roomie! Smokey, slightly spicy, and a little rich. They are to die for! Good job, hubby!
Things I am thankful for today:

1. Waking up without pain.
2. A good night's sleep.
3. Getting a lot of work done.
4. A clean house.
5. Laundry done.
6. Looking forward to dinner with Kelsey!
7. Teresa's Mexican restaurant.
8. A good Neighbor's Inc meeting - and shorter than expected!
9. Funny stories about dating in college - ahhhh... the memories.
10. Homemade candies for dessert. Yum. Thanks, Kels!

Those are mashed potatoes? It looks like bread! I had a great time with Kelsey yesterday - it's so good to see her.
