For Today... February 16, 2009
Outside my window: The skies are a light grey. We have had about ½ inch of snow overnight. The trees have that snow sitting on top of their branches making everything look sugar coated
I am thinking..How nice it is to be sitting quietly for a few minutes before another busy day must begin. My mind is whirling whirling with what is to fill my day.
From the learning rooms.. Yesterday I learned a “new to me” stitch for my paper embroidery.
I am thankful for. A brief respite from being a care giver to my husband. It is hard to find a way to get the solitude I need in order to be my best for him.
From the kitchen: I doubt there will be much going on in my kitchen today.
I am wearing: warm socks, slacks and turtle neck top.
I am reading: just my Bible at this point as I have no time or concentration for anything else.
I am hoping.. my husband will be released from the hospital today.
I am creating some paper embroidery pieces to make into greeting cards. I am thankful this work is so portable so that I have been able to take it to the hospital with me to work on while I sit alone waiting for my husband to be brought back to his room.
I am hearing soft classical music coming from the radio. It has such a soothing effect on me.
Around the house everything looks pretty good. I am so thankful for my friend, Jan, who helps me clean. With having been gone to the hospital so much this week I have had little time to tend to the house.
But it looks neat and clean and I am happy I can bring my husband home to that instead of clutter and dust.
One of my favorite things: My recliner chair. It has become such a comfort for me.
A few plans for the rest of the week: lots of errands like paying bills, picking up more bird seed, picking up a new ink cartridge for the printer, making some chicken soup for my husband when he returns home and writing a letter to my mother in the nursing home.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you: With the cold and snow outside it is a good time to recall summer flowers and butterflies. They remind me that our world is constantly changing and winter will fly away in the spring bringing new joys.
