Weekend Reflections 1/12

Looking outside...it's freaking cold, but clear. I think it's 1°F at the moment. We had a lot of snow this week and one snow day on Thursday.  It's nice to see the sun today.  Driving home from Boise last night was like driving on an ice rink at times.

Listening...blessed silence.  My boys are sleeping in.

Loving...warm fuzzy socks, blankets and cocoa, my books, my boys, The Doctor, good friends,

Thinking...that I'm glad I got Christmas put away.  The house always seems so open and clean after I do that.

In my kitchen...I have no idea on what to fix for dinner tonight.  There are some dishes I need to wash and a couple of piles of paper that need going through.

Wearing...jammies.  Mine are dark red with little black and white penguins and a black turtleneck.

Needing...to work on my big, annual editing project that happens every time this year.

Reading...still reading Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini.  I can't remember when it took me this long to read a book.   But, it's been a busy week and this one is not a quick read, I'm finding.

Today...I need to sit down with The Doctor and make a plan for my exercise and eating better.  I need to get some weight off.

Hoping...that we can go to church tomorrow as normal.  An indoor sprinkler pipe froze and burst last Sunday morning causing some flooding and canceling all meetings and services.  It happened early morning while people were in the building which was a blessing because if it had happened overnight, the damage would have been much, much worse.

Planning...some menus for next week.

Gratitude...for the opportunity I've had to work with the youth at church over the years and watching these young men and women grow into such terrific adults. Grateful that I am still close to some of these young women and that they invite me to witness significant events in their lives.

From my world...we have t-rex footprints in our backyard!

What about you?  What are you reflecting on today?


  1. Don't know what to cook for supper either... LOVE the t-rex footprints!

  2. It's 73 degrees here right now so it's hard for me to imagine it being cold anywhere. Stay warm!

  3. It was really warm today. I'd love some cold weather, especially if it came with snow!

    What the heck made that imprint in the snow?

  4. I took down the last bit of our Christmas decorations last year. I was sad to see them go since we do enjoy the Christmas holiday a lot, but that means I can now put up Valentine's stuff. And I wish we had snow. It's been so cold here but nothing except rain and severe frost.
