Everyday Tidbits...

I am having vision issues which is terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.

Weekend Reflections 1/26

Looking outside...it's still cold, but the sun is shining!  We had a snow day on Thursday and the ice was so bad that 88 miles of freeway was shut down as well as the airport runways.  Today's high should hit 34°F and it feels warm!  The rain last night washed away some ice, but it's still pretty slippery outside.

Listening...silence. I love early morning silence.  Although the toaster just popped so The Boy is up.

Loving...that I'm caught up with Downton Abbey, but I hate that I have to wait for more.  Sigh.

Thinking...it's early.  I'm not really thinking yet and this cold, combined with lack of decent sleep has me rather muddled and foggy.

In my kitchen...homemade bread and cinnamon honey butter.

Wearing...purple pajamas

Needing...to do some tidying up.

Reading...still reading The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen.  It's been a long week and this one is taking me awhile.

Today...I'm not sure.  It's open and we have no fixed engagements, which is nice.

Hoping...that this cold will go away.  I'm tired of being sick.

Planning...for the next week.  Menus, calendar, appointments, activities.

Gratitude...for decongestant and humidifiers and to see the sun shining after a cloudy, snowy week.

From my world...the birds love the berries on this tree each year.  We like watching them enjoy it.  At one point, I think there were near 100 birds in the tree.  It is now stripped bare.

What about you?  What are you reflecting on today?


  1. What a gorgeous tree, love it!

    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I love the cold.
    I also love the quiet of morning.
    Honey butter? YUM
