The Simple Woman’s Daybook – 1/11/2010

For Monday, January 11, 2010
Outside my window... Very cold and a little bit of snow showers.  We have about 5 feet of snow here, but we are supposed to have a warm up this week and some of that snow will melt to a more manageable height.  You should see the icicles hanging off of everyone’s houses (including ours.)  They’re HUGE!
I am thinking... Hmmmm? What am I thinking? 
I am thankful for... The new laptop that I got.  My friend Ruth bought a laptop that was way too fancy for her needs, so I bought it and will pay her monthly for it.  It’s soooo sweet!!  I’m selling my Dell Mini-10 if anyone wants to buy it.
From the kitchen... With a gift card I received for Christmas, I bought an electric griddle from Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  OMG!  It makes perfect pancakes and perfect grilled cheese sandwiches.  I can’t wait to try out french toast. 
I am wearing... Warm lounging around clothes.
I am creating... I have been working on my crocheting a lot lately.  As you can read/see from my other blog posts, I’m making preemie baby booties, hats, blankets.  Last night I taught a friend of mine how to crochet.  Actually, she has crocheted before, but needed a refresher course.  I really enjoyed our time together.  It was special – Thanks Mo!
I am going... I might be going to the airport and hop on a plain for ???? just to get a break from this snow! 
I am reading... Nothing right now.
I am hoping... That I can get more motivated to work.  I just don’t have it in me right now.  It’s such a bummer when you have no “oomph” to do anything but snuggle up to stay warm, crochet, and play on the new laptop.
I am hearing... The annoying sound of my mom’s voice while she talks super loud to my grandma (very hard of hearing.)  Grandma will NOT get hearing aids and that makes things very stressful when trying to communicate.  Now I think my mom’s hearing is going bad too! 
Around the house... I still need to finish the valances for the foyer doors, paint the accent wall a new color because we do not like the color it is now, and a few more miscellaneous things. 
One of my favorite things... I would love to go tubing/sledding, but since I have a hip replacement, it’s not really a good idea.  I think the most difficult part would be to walk back up the hill.  The place where you can sled ride nearby does not have a moving tow rope.  Bummer!  If they did…. no problem!
A few plans for the rest of the week:  I may need to fix one of the neighbors computers.  He called and I talked him through a few things, but I may need to actually go there and fix it myself.  Then the rest of the week I need to focus on work.  Ugh!
Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Glad you found a laptop that you like. I certainly like mine.

I'd book a flight, too, if we had 5 feet of snow! Yikes
