For April 7
Outside my window.....it's completely dark! I don't think I've ever done a daybook entry at night.
I am thinking.....about how happy the arrival of spring - FINALLY! - makes me feel inside.
I am thankful.....for warmer temperatures, sunshine, and melting snow.
I am wearing....black running pants with a long sleeved coral colored top.
I am hearing.....the dog snoring down the hallway.
I am wondering.....what I should do with a bunch of tulip bulbs that I forgot that I had until I did some cleaning in our mudroom closet today. I was going to put them into pots this winter and try forcing them into a spring bloom. Whoops!
I am creating.....a list of indoor cleaning projects to do before all the snow is gone.
I am going.....to get back on track with my walking/running now that the backroads are almost clear of snow and ice.
I am reading....."The Storm Inside" by Sheila Walsh
I am praying.....for my son and daughter-in-law as tonight is their first night home with their brand new beautiful baby boy.
I am remembering.....how muddy everything gets in the spring, especially dog paws.
I am hoping.....to soon be able to open up windows and let the fresh air inside.
On my mind.....is a friend who is going through a difficult time with her health and no definite diagnosis yet.
From the learning rooms.....we are getting fewer and fewer pages that need to be done in our books. Yippeeeeee!
I am learning....how to use my Kindle app on my iPad (go ahead and laugh!)
Noticing that.....the birds are really singing in the morning now. I don't really notice them until I open the door to let the dog out.
I am looking forward to.....waking up earlier in the morning as I shake off this winter hibernation mode.
Pondering these words....."Until we have seen someone's darkness we don't really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone's darkness, we don't really know what love is." ~ Marianne Williamson
From the kitchen.....is an almost empty container that was filled with pieces of fresh pineapple. That yummy stuff disappears in an instant around here.
Around the house....are a variety of coats, sweaters, and sweatshirts scattered around. We never know what we'll need as each day the weather is so different.
One of my favorite things.....are when my older ones come home for a visit.
A few plans for the rest of the week.....include a few days of work, spring cleaning as I'm able to squeeze it in, school corrections, figuring out tax returns for the kids, and a board meeting at the end of the week.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you....
Here's a view of some of our front yard and the driveway. Still quite a bit of snow to melt, but at least it's warming up enough to actually melt. It makes for a dull colorless view except for that bright orange sled that was left on a driveway snowbank.
