Nicole's Daybook

Outside my window... after our 30 degree, blowing, snow-filled weekend, it's now a sunny, warm 70 degrees.

I am thinking... about contentment.

I am thankful ... for not having to work outside my home.

I am wearing... black yoga pants, a long-sleeved white t-shirt layered with a gray short-sleeved t-shirt and my Nike's.

I am remembering... how vibrant my grandma used to be, and how much she has deteriorated over the last several years.

I am creating... wooden scripture blocks for the Mother Daughter banquet.

I am going... to do some housework this morning and then lay on the couch after Brynne goes to school and watch Julie and Julia by myself. I am still feeling a little cruddy today.

I am reading... True Colors, by Kristin Hannah.

I am hoping... that Rick gets a new job so that he can leave behind a company that does not appreciate his talents and work ethic.

On my mind... is how different my kids are from each other and how one thing works for one, but would be impossible for another.

From the learning rooms... we are now beginning the last 9 weeks of our school year. It has gone by so fast! It's also time to enroll Brynne in kindergarten. Unbelieveable!

Pondering these words ... "Papa, I want you to come to my birthday party and make my cake." ~ Brynne to my dad when he was putting the icing on the angel food cake for my grandma.

From the kitchen... I still haven't come up with a menu for this week, which is not like me. I have dinner planned for tonight, and tomorrow night it's Fend For Yourself (Rick and I will be at the retirement party). I need to get it together and plan some meals for Thursday night, Saturday night and Sunday night. Maybe I'll just let three people pick their favorite meals and fix those.

Around the house... is almost every sock we own needing to be sorted and folded.

One of my favorite things... is all of the signs of Spring ~ the big fat Robin in the backyard, my herb seeds sprouting.

A few plans for the rest of the week... this afternoon I have to go meet with Kyndal's counselor at school to plan her remaining three years of high school (can you believe that?). Tomorrow night Rick and I are attending a retirement party for the former owner of his company. On Friday we're taking the puppies to the vet for their next round of shots. Then Rick and I have been invited to go out to dinner with a large group of friends. We're undecided if we are going yet, though. On Saturday Eli and Brynne have a birthday party to go and Rick's golf season officially starts.
