Winter.We have not had this much snow since the year Josh was born in 1994. I don't think we had close to this much even that winter. The snow piles in the yard, where the boys are shoveling, are over my head! It is beautiful to look at but we have been stuck at home for a couple of weeks. The roads are treacherous.
I saw a link here to A Simple Woman's Daybook and thought I would play along.
Outside my window... the snow is piled higher than my head, there are deep shadows of blue and grey against the beautiful white drifts, and the trees are covered and drooping under the weight of the endless snow.
I am thinking... ~how much I wish Daniel would enjoy life and take that vacation with his Dad and brothers for his Dad's 80th birthday.
I am thankful for...the simplicity of my new living room decor.
I am wearing...new soft grey sweatpants, grey hoodie with purple trim, felted slippers made by Nessa. In a word...cozy.
I am remembering... doing projects in January. Pulling out the old journals and seeing what inspired me in years past.
I am going...to try to get out of the house this week and go to Edmonton.
I am currently reading... "The Golden Thread-A Reader's journey Through the Great Books" by Bruce Meyer
I am hoping... to get lots of studying in with the boys over the next few months.
On my mind...how good it feels as I de-clutter and let go of all the stuff that has been weighing me down.
Noticing that... it's easier to keep the house clean with less "stuff" in it.
Pondering these words..."Home is not just where the heart is...."..."it is also the center of perception, the force that shapes the soul of an individual and dictates the rules of how one should behave in the world." Bruce Meyer - from book I am reading (see above)
In the kitchen... Enjoying trying new recipes and planning ahead of time what I want to make for suppers.
Around the house... Still amazed at my new kitchen. I LOVE cooking on the gas stove!
One of my favorite things...getting a parcel delivered to my door. (today it's my New Directions essential oils).
