Outside my window … everything’s covered in frost and the sun is shining, making the world look sparkly. Mt. Baker looks white and fluffy.
I am thinking … about Mom and Stan’s upcoming wedding, this Saturday. I’m excited, but also nervous, since I’ll be meeting members of my soon-to-be extended family.
I am thankful for … my husband’s improving health. It’s such a weight off my shoulders to see him smiling and happy, being productive at work, and excited to work on hobby projects of his own at home.
From the kitchen … everything is quiet, but once we make a trip to the store, I’ll be whipping up a batch of mint and peppermint cream cheese candies for Mom’s wedding.
I am wearing … comfy sweatpants and my Village Books t-shirt that says “Reading is sexy”.
I am creating … more excuses in my head as to why I still haven’t finished Chris’s Totoro hat and Bre’s penguin hat. *grumble*
I am going … to the gym on a regular basis, again! It feels so good. I must be one of the only people who actually enjoys working out. This past day, I’ve been feeling sore from Friday’s upper body weights workout, and I love that feeling.
I am reading … nothing, at the moment. I have about ten books that I’m about halfway through, from the past few months, but none are calling my name right now.
I am hoping … that this year will be better than last year. Last year was … taxing. Emotionally and physically stressful.
I am hearing … sounds of activity as Ty just finished his shower. Time to get ready to run errands.
Around the house … is the scent of wood smoke. I love having a fireplace, but it sure seems like it could be more effective at keeping the smoke from exiting.
One of my favorite things … right now, is Yuri laying on my lap. Since our little Rocket died, Yuri has become much more affectionate and I’m taking full advantage of that.
A few plans for the rest of the week … I want to see if Ty can take an afternoon off so we can see The Hobbit when the new theater isn’t crowded. Friday morning, we’ll be heading South to meet up with my dad and exchange Christmas gifts that we didn’t get to this year, then heading to Whidbey to help prep for the wedding.
