Outside my window…it has snowed and snowed and snowed this week. The schools have been off for three days. That doesn’t affect us of course, as with homeschooling we can school on snow days and take off on nice ones.
I am thinking…that while the snow is beautiful, it doesn’t seem like time to be winter yet. It does brighten up the world though.
I am thankful…for a warm house and shelter from the wind, and for sensible folk who cancel events because the roads are terrible.
In the kitchen…leftover chili is thawing on the counter, to be soon warmed up and served with rice for dinner.
I am wearing…blue jeans, a navy fleece that was my Mother’s, and a long-sleeved t-shirt in my favourite colour of green.
I am creating…this blog post, and looking forward to cross-stitching while listening to one of our books after dinner.
I am going…nowhere today. Too much snow, and you can’t even tell that they did plow our street today.
I am wondering…whether the rain in the forecast will actually materialize, and if it does, how it will affect the snow. (This does seem to be a weather-related post!)
I am reading…King of the Wind by Marguerite Henry, with the children.
I am hoping…to get this posted today.
I am looking forward to..better weather, as Belle is taking driver’s ed, and while she is in her class, I camp out at the library and cross-stitch on a project.
I am learning…that I can rarely do everything I plan to do. Life happens.
Around the house…laundry sits in baskets waiting to be folded, supper is on the stove, and the kids are clearing paths and bringing in wood for tomorrow.
I am pondering …how to stay happy during the dark days of winter. It is a challenge sometimes, but I find that an attitude of gratitude helps, as well as listening to music throughout the day. We have much to be grateful for.
A favourite quote for today…” A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!” Proverbs 15:23
One of my favourite things…happy children doing their schoolwork.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Go to “Third Friday Music” tomorrow if the weather is better, and it isn’t cancelled. That is an organ concert put on by one of our local ministers on their organ at the church down the road.
A peek into my day: Or a peek outside of my day…
