Outside My Window. . . a beautiful day is in the making: clear blue sky, birds chattering in the trees, and a slight breeze flapping the flag. Last week's snow has melted, encouraging the world to come out of its winter slumber.
I am thinking. . . of opening up the house today and letting in some fresh air.
I am thankful... for a Monday morning at home. I switched shifts with another volunteer, so I will work this afternoon at the hospital.
In the kitchen... an early lunch is in the works - leftovers (planned overs from last night's meal).
I am wearing... casual clothes: a tee and some khaki pants
I am creating... some knitted items for the troops: neck gators for now.
I am planning... knit some helmet liners, in addition to the neck gators. The CitizensSAM site has more information.
I am reading... Toxic Bachelors by Danielle Steel.
I am praying... for my neighbor who is still hospitalized.
I am hearing... the chattering of birds in my yard. They are very busy this morning, gathering and singing.
One of my favorite things... hearing the first meadowlark, a sure sign of Spring. I always hear, "Gee, you're a funny creature!" in their song. It never fails to make me smile. I really miss their cheerful songs in the fall and winter.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . a) attend a Health Talk seminar, b) lunch with a new support group member, c) finish some knitting projects.
A quote worth sharing. . .
