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.


  1. My prayers are with you and your husband. I love the picture it is so heart warming, makes you feel spring is one the way.

  2. Lovely day book. Have a good week.

  3. I am glad you have help from your friend as you are a caregiver to your husband. I hope to continue seeing your posts on Daybook. :)
