For Today... January 16th, 2017>

Outside my window...Its a gray, drizzly, cold day. Its 29 degrees, and rising.

I am thinking... all all I need to do, to get this house back in order. After the last month of being sick, I have neglected the bulk of my heavy, deep cleaning.

I am thankful... for a job that allows me to work at home, so I can avoid the nasty weather we get in the winter months

One of my favorite things... a cup of tea and some quiet time with the Lord

I am wearing... a black zip up fleece jacket, a teal shirt and black fleece comfy pants

I am creating... I am still working on the same afghans, one for my youngest and one for myself. I have a scarf/cowl in the wings just waiting for me to break out a pair of knitting needles. I also want to make a set of hats - mother/daughter/American Girl doll.

I am reading (read) /watching (watched) / listening to... Watching Chicago Med

I am hoping... that the weather doesn't turn nasty so I can go to the movies with a friend and her daughters tomorrow.

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ spaghetti, garlic bread and a salad
Tuesday ~ kielbasa and mac-n-cheese
Wednesday ~ apple pancakes and sausage
Thursday ~ homemade taco pizza
Friday ~ vegetable beef soup and rolls
Saturday ~ not sure yet
Sunday ~ pork tenderloin, baked potato, corn and rolls

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ housework, laundry, cleaning/organizing craft room, crochet
Tuesday ~ work - movie with friends
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ grocery shopping, errands, nails done, crochet
Saturday ~ it may be a lazy day
Sunday ~ church, veg, then get ready for Women's meeting
