Outside my window...gloomy and cool. It is not as cold as it was last week but I hear that the temperatures are supposed to drop.
I am thinking...about the simple things. Lately my To Do list has gotten a lot longer and instead of tackling it, I've been...well slacking. I've been slacking way too long and then I end up freaking out because there's so much to do. Yesterday I made a huge list of things that need to be done so that Rondell, Aunt Roni and I can tackle the house. I've realized that if I just do little things at a time the whole list will eventually come together.
So, yesterday Rondell unattached the hoses outside and I finally bought bath mats for our bathroom and the kids' bathroom (I'm excited that I'll be able to post about those soon). Today I'm going to bagged up all of the clothing that needs to be donated. Simple.
I am thankful for...my aunt's willingness to help me tackle my master To Do list.
I am reading...Captivating. It is really good.
I am hoping...still for that sewing machine for Christmas. Maybe if I post about it enough a loving person will buy it for me!
From the kitchen...no clue. We've been eating a lot of simple meals. Last night we had fish sticks. I do see potato soup in my future from a recipe I saw here.
Around the house...see the "thinking" section above.
One of my favorite things...winning blog giveaways! I just won this giveaway and I can't be more excited. It is a perfect combination of two things I love...totes and Stampin Up!
A few plans for the rest of the week...Make cookies, tackle To Do list, go to Jamison's two chorus performances, help with Jamison's winter party at school and make a few crafts.
