for today... jan 10, 2011

outside my window...already dark outside but clear skies and cool temperatures.
i am thinking... way too much as always! 
i am thankful for... the company of books during a weekend by myself.
i am wearing... blue jeans, white long sleeve tee & gray all stars
i am going... to start walking and exercising again this week.
i am currently reading... 'winter sea' by susana kearsley.
i am hoping... i can accomplish lots of new projects this year - one at a time...
on my mind... my son studies.
pondering these words... ' courage does not always roar. sometimes is the quiet voice at the end of the day, saying,'i will try again tomorrow'  -anonymous-
from the kitchen... roasted chicken with potatoes and other veggies. 
around the house... no more christmas decorations around!
one of my favorite things... to walk around barefoot in my house.
i'm creating... memories.
a few plans for the rest of the week... start working on a very long to-do list! yikes!
from my lens: 

restless night

you can join the simple woman's daybook  where every day is a blank page..... and participate in creating a list of the simple things and every day moments of our daily lives.

remember my last post? about the one word resolution? well, my dear friend helen found a fabulous project for us to participate in this year: one little word, an online class taught by ali edwards with a once a month assignment  including some great creative prompts. 
the purpose is to make something more tangible with your chosen word and a way to keep it on your mind throughout the year. wonderful idea, isn't it? for more info you can visit the big picture classes blog.

check out my cover page:

and my january prompt card page:

    I'm really enjoying reading about everyone's chosen "word", it's so wonderful to have good friends to support and encourage one another throughout the year. That's one of the best things about our online community. The friendships we nurture and the rewards we reap. Oh listen to me getting all deep & meaningful. LOL!
