Monday's Daybook #2

February 22, 2010 by Rieshy


Outside my window... The brown winter grass is contemplating the color green.
I am thinking... that my toddlers need to sleep later.
I am thankful for... my husband's morning conversation.
From the learning rooms...
comes the sound of silence- one more day of vacation.
From the kitchen...
the coffee maker is silent. I ran out of coffee beans this weekend; thank goodness for the instant I bought 6 months ago for a frosting recipe.
I am wearing...
yoga pants and a hoodie.
I am creating... an afghan out of my stash of yarn in an old shale pattern.
I am going..
as few places as possible today.
I am reading... The Brain That Changes Itself, and A Mother's Rule of Life.
I am hoping...
for a client's check in the mail.
I am hearing... my toddlers singing the theme song from the movie Inspector Gadget.
Around the house...
are sleeping teen-agers.
One of my favorite things...
a hidden stash of chocolate hearts in the pantry.
A few plans for the rest of the week: taking a load of clothing and books to Goodwill.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
The daily (morning) grind.

I love your blog - it always makes me feel good. I am going to get that book.

I am thankful my toddler is resting quietly and not fighting it!

Girl Next Door,

Thanks:) The Brain book is fascinating.

The Mother's book is interesting too. I'm not Catholic so some parts of the book are a foreign landscape to me. However, the way she explains the story from Mat. 14 of the feeding of the 5,000 is incredibly insightful.-and relevant to any mother.

Enjoy your quiet!

how wonderful. A day full of quiet, and noisy, and what? NO COFFEE!? ACK!

I can't imagine a morning with no coffee. I keep some singles on hand just for that eventuality.
Have a wonderful week and enjoy the silence.
