Joining back at The Simple Woman’s Daybook for January
Happy January everyone! I hope this day finds you well and excited about the new year!
I’m joining the Simple Woman’s Daybook again after a long absence. I don’t know what happened last year, I was just very lazy about it. But this year I hope I can stay focused and join each month.
Outside my window…the sun is shining brightly after what seemed like forever clouds.
I am thinking…that I need to clean today’s lunch away.
I am thankful…that we are still healthy after all these years.
In the kitchen…today’s lunch of spaghetti still cooling on the stove before I put it in the fridge. I made so much, we’ll have it again tomorrow.
I am wearing…jeans, black t-shirt, polka-dotted socks
I am creating…lots of projects in my mind, but nothing of note lately.
I am going…to spend today with relaxing activity at home. It’s the Epiphany holiday today and the weeks of celebration are slowly coming to an end.
I am wondering…what this year might bring, but trying not to meditate on it.
I am reading…Inspired You by Marian Parsons, I love her style. The book is a mixture of diy decorating and thoughts on being satisfied with the homes we have.
I am hoping…that the winter won’t last too long this season, I’m not much into snow and ice.
I am looking forward to…getting back to blogging regularly again. After working on the look of the blog for so long, I’ve neglected posting.
I am learning…how to embroider. Practicing my stitches like a school girl!
Around the house…it’s really quiet right now. Everyone is out except me.
I am pondering…on our society in Germany. I hope we learn from our past history and don’t get sucked into a black hole of thinking our problems are due to minority groups. That said, I wish our government would take peoples angst seriously and find solutions instead of empty words.
A favorite quote for today…Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
I don’t know where this came from, but my dad used to tell me this all the time and I just had to think about it a lot lately. I would add to that and say that it is important to learn how to say what you mean in a loving way. Learning how to articulate feelings is probably one of the most important things we can learn.
One of my favorite things…hot coffee and sitting down to a good English movie.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Taking down the Christmas decorations, doing a little cleaning and then some sightseeing with hubby while he still has time off.
