Outside my Window… The clouds full of snow are looming low and are much grayer than normal making it look so much earlier than it is.
I am thinking…
that I need to seriously concentrate on MY quality time with myself and accomplishing a specific goal each week as well as some of my UFOs (Unfinished Fabric Objects) to ease my sense of overwhelming.
From the learning rooms…
nothing this week.
I am thankful for…my husband’s volunteer work issue being sorted out last week, FINALLY!! They were taking advantage of him and he finally realized it. One of those guy things, he needed to figure it out for himself. Also that Eric will be home for a few days. He and his dad will have some ‘guy’ time together.
From the kitchen…For breakfast maple and brown sugar oatmeal with golden raisins and coffee for me, lunch will be out after bowling league and dinner will be Country Chicken & Rice.
I am wearing…my favorite Levi’s and my West Yellowstone, Embalmer’s Beer T-shirt.
I am reading…Suddenly by Barbara Delinsky
I am hoping…to finish organizing the front coat closet as well as the closet where we store the holiday decorations and the basement this week.
I am creating…a mess while I reorganize the quilting supplies trying to simplify the studio.
I am hearing…
the last few percolations from the coffee pot YAY!! I need coffee!!
Around the house… A house to be cleaned, a ceiling to be repaired from the shower leak and lots of trim molding and painting.

One of my favorite things…Is my quiet morning time with just my thoughts.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… With Eric home, the plans are up in the air and going to be spontaneous, but I do plan to finish a few recipes and maybe a quilt.
Here is the picture thought I am sharing with you…

I guess we are no where near Spring yet.

I enjoyed reading this. I often make a bigger mess when trying to organize. Eventually it gets organized but, you have to wonder when you see the bigger mess!

Have a great day.
