Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside My Window. . . winter's grasp tightens once more. Last night a violent wind brought in another storm, and this morning everything is covered with 5 inches of heavy, wet snow. The wind is still howling and will make travel treacherous today.

I am thinking. . . this latest storm is inconvenient, but it is packed with wonderful and much needed moisture. I will try not to grumble about shoveling it off of the walks and drive.

I am thankful... that I am no longer teaching. A friend stopped by for a visit yesterday, and hearing of the changes and struggles at my former school made me very thankful that I do not have to deal with the ever extending schedule and the stress of state testing. Leaving education was difficult for me, but now I am certain that if I had stayed, my health would be much worse: the stress alone would have been too much.

In the kitchen... breakfast is delayed. I have lab work this morning so breakfast will have to wait.

I am wearing... my typical casual outfit.

I am creating... a gray wool, cropped cardigan. I am making slow progress.

I am planning... a support group meeting on Saturday.

I am reading... nothing at the moment. I haven't had time to go to the library.

I am praying... the weather cooperates so the support group members will have good roads for Saturday's meeting.

I am hearing... the sputter of coffee maker as the last bit of water is pumped into the filter.

One of my favorite things... frosted sugar cookies. My friend Deb brings a half dozen of these treats when she visits. They are always yummy!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . a) lab work, b) doctor's appointment, c) annual yard sale with a group of friends.

A photo worth sharing. . .

The tulips survived last week's storm, but their little heads are covered with an even heavier blanket this morning. Somewhere under there they are struggling to be the harbingers of Spring.
