The Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY, April 26, 2011
Outside my window... rain, mild temps, pretty yellow Forsythia, daffodils-I’m back in Illinois and it’s typical spring weather.
I am thinking...my cat Tigger is hilarious. He’s hissing at the water bowl and playing in it. (Now I know why the floor has been wet.)
I am thankful for...flying "home" and driving to Indiana in the new convertible to spend Easter weekend with my Mom and Sisters.
From the learning rooms...nothing-it’s Sarah’s spring break and she’s “taking a break”!
From the kitchen...I made angel hair pasta with Vodka sauce & Italian sausage last night. I don’t have a clue what I’m making for dinner. Reservations?? I actually think I'm making our famous enchiladas with a fried egg on top...
I am wearing...khaki cropped pants, a bright green hoodie sweater and mustard wedges.(I'm digging deep into what I've got here in the Illinois house.)
I am creating...a springtime looking house. Mike still had Valentine’s decorations up!
I am going...to get my hair hi-lighted and my bangs trimmed.
I am reading...Laura Bush’s memoirs.
I am hoping...Sarah’s ear infection feels better before she flies home Friday.
I am hearing...The ice maker and my cat meowing. (And the train all through the night- not used to that.)
Around the house...lots of cleaning needs to take place.I actually hired someone to help me with the bathrooms, kitchen and main floor. Remember- I've been gone four months.
One of my favorite things...watching my husband & daughter play Banana-grams.
A few plans for the rest of the week: errands, get a pedi, hosting the bible study brunch, possibly going to the Chicago Art Museum,taking my daughter to the mall, hanging with my pets & family, watching the Royal wedding, packing, flying to Rome!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
My very first ride in my husband's new Audi convertible. Fun!!
