Thursday 13: Daybook musings...

1. Outside my window... there is simply not enough snow for me. In fact, there is none. Grrr. I was really, really wanting a snow day this week. Sigh. I have a feeling that if you're reading this in a snow-bound part of the country right now, you might hate me a little bit. Sorry.

2. I am thinking... about things I had been able to put off for a bit, but now can't avoid. Ah, that's the way of it. You can stuff it down for a bit, but it always comes back. Nuts.

3. I am thankful for... so very, very much. Right now it's that our house is OURS again, no workmen banging away on this or that (they were actually an amazing and great crew, but they were just HERE. ALOT.). It's very quiet and peaceful and I love that.

4. From the kitchen... lots of legumes. Made a chili this week that the boys both liked, and a number of other soups and stews. Nice simple winter food!

5. I am wearing... (oh wow, for once it's not my fuzzy robe and slippers!) some track pants and a long-sleeved T-shirt. (And my slippers.)

6. I am creating... a lot of lists! I'm even getting a few things marked off of them, too... Progress, progress, progress.

7. I am going... to have sushi tomorrow with a dear friend. Yum.

8. I am reading... Faith and Will by Julia Cameron. Enjoying it, very much.

9. I am hoping... that maybe a snow storm really will still happen this week? Or maybe that's a pipedream... I know, you all think I'm insane. But I really really want to cross-country ski across our pasture and have coffee with my friend Laura. I really do. It's been my dream all winter.

10. I am hearing... not a blessed thing. Ah.

11. Around the house... it is one big cleaning frenzy. Now that I can put things back in their proper places, I am trying to do that intentionally, and with a few fun twists too... the furniture arrangements in the game-room area are better than ever, and I am loving the new seating in the kitchen too. Comfy.

12. One of my favorite things... are my after-school chats with Seth. And the snacks. Chats and snacks.

13. A few plans for the rest of the week... Tomorrow's a big day. I have a dentist appointment in the morning (happy crown day!) and a hair appointment right after. It's a "brand new me" kind of day. A lot of sitting in chairs... not my favorite...

Here is picture for thought I am sharing... I like this sentiment and feel lucky to live in such a home.

Hope you are having a lovely Thursday!

For more Thursday 13s, go here.


  1. I hope you get your snow. Congrats on having the workmen out of your home! I can imagine the silence is beyond golden.

    Happy TT,

  2. I love the last one the best. Glad to hear you are taking some time out for you. Happy T13!

  3. I want some snow too. But not as much as the russian pictures I saw earlier LOL.

  4. Enjoyed reading your "daybook musings". Glad to here your kitchen is once more yours without the constant presence of workmen. Enjoy!

  5. Oh, so happy to hear you have your house back--and Seth in it too! I've been meaning to tell you that I love your new blog header. So pretty.

    Sorry your snow day was out of stock! Hugs, M.

  6. It's so hard to believe that someone doesn't have snow on the ground. I'd love to share some of mine with ya.

  7. Honey, you are more than welcome to our share of the snow. Wanna trade?

    Love the new header, BTW!

  8. Nice thoughts. I hope you get your snow (if you really, really want it). And I am glad the work has been completed on your home. It is difficult to have strangers in your living space.

  9. i could never hate you, but we do have a lot of snow!

  10. The chili sounds wonderful!! Yummy!

    So, are we going to see a picture of the new hair do??

    Happy Friday!!
