Simple Woman's Daybook
For today, Monday, February 23, 2009
Outside my window...it is sunny, cold, and windy.
I am thinking...why is that we always think of February as being so short when it's only missing two or three days. Also why do the days from February and March always match up (except in Leap Year) and why am I always surpirsed to realize it? Yep, real philosophical stuff going on!
I am thankful...that my uncle Ted appears to be responding to chemo and will continue with more treatments. Also that my uncle Joe, his brother, is responding to the medication for his lung infection. He has severe emphysema and his lung collapsed last summer and we were afraid it was happening again (now that we know what to look for). My mom went with him to the doctor last week and he is feeling better.
From the kitchen...finally made meatloaf and mashed potatoes last night (YUM!!)...on the menu this week, a new recipe for spaghetti, as well as a recipe for pork chops, both from Sandra. Also will be making the chicken recipe that I didn't make last week.
I am creating...hoping to do a Mardi Gras craft with Tucker today/tomorrow.
I am wearing...navy blue and white striped sweatshirt and jeans
I am reading...was stressing myself out trying to read Les Miserables and returned it to the library. I am almost done with The Wives of Henry VIII and will be moving on to The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory next. With Tucker, we read President Pennybaker for Presidents Day, George Washington's Teeth (really cute story told in rhyme) for Washington's birthday, Puss in Cowboy Boots, and Beetle McGrady Eats Bugs!
His favorites were President Pennybaker, and Beetle McGrady Eats Bugs!. Make sure you check out my blog tomorrow to see What's On My Nightstand
I am hoping...to work on my scrapbooking this week.
I am hearing...The People's Court and the fishtanks.
Around the house...Laundry needs to be done...dishes need to be put in the dishwasher...Valentine's Day stuff is still up; green is my least favorite color so I tend to wait to decorate for St Patrick's Day. I did change the flag and door decoration...it's actually pretty clean around here.
One of my favorite things...playing Uno Attack with Tucker.
A few plans for the rest of the week...haircut on Thursday...physical on Thursday (so I can start working for another agency per diem)...working on the PTO fundraiser...quiet week actually.
A picture thought...
I thought this was a cute picture of Felix and Tucker. Felix very rarely sticks around Tucker for very long so it was very unusual to find him laying next to him on the couch!
