Good Afternoon, friends! This is probably my only halfway "quiet" day this week, so let's get this underway!
The weather outside is: COLD! And there's a very light dusting of snow on the ground! SNOW! Actual snow!
On the breakfast plate this morning: I had a Lean Cuisine. Breakfast foods are not my friend first thing in the morning.
As I look outside my window: I'm still pretty amazed that we have SNOW. It's not enough to get out and play in, but it does give me hope for this winter :)
Right now I am: Thanking God that I feel better, physically and emotionally. It had been over 10 years since my last pregnancy, and having it end in miscarriage was more frightening and panic-inducing than I ever expected. Yesterday was just a bad day, but I feel much better today.
As I look around the house: I'm ready to get into the swing of things with school and work again, Also, I do believe my amaryllis will bloom by the end of this week, and I cannot wait!
On today's to-do list:
*Cleaning the bathrooms (Monday is Bathroom Day)
*Bundle up and hit the library with Miss Ella
*Buy milk, because apparently, we are out.
Happening this week: Back to the grind with no holidays to break it up! Oh well!
Currently Reading: 1 Chronicles in the Bible, "Pearls of Great Price" by Joni Eareckson Tada, and "Where the Broken Lie" by Derek Rempfer. Also, finishing up a book with my sister: "The Inconvenient Corpse" by Jackie King. Thera is is Texas, and I am in North Carolina, but it's nice to "read" a book together. (We both have it on Kindle, will read a chapter at the same time, and discuss over text message...it's our own little two-person book club)
On the TV today: Probably nothing for me, I've got a lot to do and I really, really, really want to finish "Where the Broken Lie." I'm pretty sure that Gabe and Ella have a Star Trek marathon planned, as he is off of work, and they are both big Trekkies.
The Meals This Week:
Monday: The Turkey Spaghetti I was supposed to make yesterday. I did SO well with meals this week, but I felt so bad yesterday that I jumped at the chance to have pizza with a friend, and made Gabe some chicken soup when he got home. (Ella went with me to have pizza)
Wednesday: Chicken and CousCous
Thursday: Pork Roast
Friday: Planned Leftovers: Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Saturday: Winter Potato Soup
What I am Creating at this Moment: A get-well card for a family member.
