Outside my window… The sky is clear and stellar.

I am thinking… that I need to stop procrastinating and clean the kitchen.

I am thankful for… my daughter, who asked to sing along with a folk song CD and book collection today.

From the kitchen… I made white bean chili today.

I am wearing… goosebumps. It’s chilly here!

I am creating… time and space in my life for more art and knitting.

I am going… to start reading a new book, probably At Home by Bill Bryson.

I am reading… at this very moment, nothing. I just finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

I am hoping… Claire is well enough to attend preschool tomorrow. She has a small cold.

I am hearing… Stella, my cat, purring in my right ear as she snuggles behind my head on the couch.

Around the house… we really need to vacuum! But ours is broken and at the repair shop.

One of my favorite things… is cuddling with my daughter.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Preschool, crafts with Claire, starting a painting.

Here is picture I am sharing…

Hub gave me a new camera for Christmas. I’m learning to use it, and here is something I did today.

    It was interesting enough to keep me reading, but it was pretty brutal, too.
