The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY:  Monday, February 23, 2010

Outside my's nightime now, but today it snowed some and there was VERY thick cloud cover all day long.

I am thinking...that I hope Kyle's cough suppresent kicks in soon so he can sleep soundly.

I am thankful for...the women at my Bible study. They're amazing.

From the learning as usual. we will be done with Kyle's 2nd grade Math at the end of this week! We started our new History book today too!

From the kitchen...I have been pretty lazy about cooking real dinners for the past 5 days or so. Enough of that....I am hearing you loud and clear, Ronnie!!!...back to ops normal tomorrow!

I am wearing...Jeans and a shirt

I am creating...TONS of swap blocks! Quilts for Project Linus, and crocheting two afghans...oh, and I am making a pillowcase for the 1 million pillowcasw challenge too.

I am reading...Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber and Tender Rebel by someone else....can't remember at the moment, lol.

I am finish my Mini-Quilt Winter Swap quilt this week. That Kyle gets over this cold QUICKLY. That Lisa gets my box by Thursday. That Kyle's clothes arrive tomorrow from TCP. That Ronnie stays on top of his schoolwork this week too. Want some more??? :o)

I am hearing...the shower running

Around the house...I feel a little behind on my housework. I plan to rectify that tomorrow though.

One of my favorite things...Jacob playing with Kyle's toys...he cracks me up EVERY day! I love it!

A few plans for the rest of the week... I am having Kristen over to start her quilt Thursday morning, then Project Linus Thursday night. Saturday is Project Linus day at Joann's then Sunday we are going on our very first ever ski trip!! And Monday is the women's dinner at church.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...the stick-ups I bought for my sewing room...who ever said that they're just for kids?! :)

I got my toes done today! Can you tell that I'm ready for Spring?? The spa pedicure was WONDERFUL! It has been SOOOOOOOOOOO long! I almost forgot how wonderful pedicures are!

Here's what I woke up to Sunday morning....after several days of warm, bright, sunny, blue sky days...
I still haven't blogged about our trip to means I probably won't, lol. Here are a few pics though!

This is one of my FAVORITES....Kyle and his friend Elizabeth running :)

(I love my Ronnie!)

I think I have the absolute most ADORABLE and unique cat! He loves fabric! He climbed in my bag, lol.
He jumps in the tub and plays with Kyle's hotwheels....ALL the time! And...the other day I found him playing with the helicopter. Most of you also know that he loves stuffed animals :)

Here is him and my Chihuahua, Linus fighting, lol.

Here is an absolutely adorable panel that was given to me as a gift! I LOVE IT!! SO true!

I have TONS of blocks to post, but will do so sometime this week. I told myself I'd keep this one random...I need to get to bed early tonight!
P.S. In case anyone is wondering....they moved my Simple Woman's Daybook to Tuesdays!! So stay tuned! ;)
