FOR TODAY (PLACE THE DATE HERE)...
Outside my window...The sun is going down and there are high clouds in the sky. I hope we get a little rain (or snow) in the next day or so.

I am thinking...that I loved Christmas and New Years. I enjoyed the visiting it brought. But, I am ready to get back to the normal rhythm of life.

I am thankful for...my family and my friends. God has blessed me greatly with both.

From the learning rooms...the books are closed for today, but we were back at it after a nice two week break.

From the kitchen...it is taking a rest. We had a pig-pen raising on Saturday and friends over yesterday. The kitchen (and I) are taking a rest.

I am wearing...a red sweater, jeans, USC flip-flops.

I am creating...a different routine for my life.

I am going...to sit down and watch the Fiesta Bowl tonight.

I am reading...Seven Days to the Sea.

I am hoping...that new meetings might have new meanings for my daughter.

I am hearing...my three year old son singing, "Gloooooooooooooooria, in exceleis Deo!"

Around the house...things are winding down for the day, and getting ready for the nighttime routine.

One of my favorite things...ice cold Pepsi.

A few plans for the rest of the week: nothing exciting. Just getting back into the swing of things. My husband and 15 y.o. daughter are going to (hopefully) find a pig for her 4H project on Thursday.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...We had snow on December 17, 2008. It is not unusual to have snow on the desert, but we got seven inches in about that many hours. Oh, by the way, this is not from my house, but from a friends. This shot is looking north into the town that I live in.
