Happy New Year! (late)

Starting off my blogging new year with a template that my friend Mimi uses sometimes, from A Woman's Daybook:

Outside my window...Sunny, partly blue sky, partly feathery gray clouds.

I am thinking...about all the things on my 2010 "to do" list.

I am thankful for...a warm house, my beautiful nieces and nephews, my sweet husband who spoils me.

From the kitchen...finished off the last of my Christmas ham/cheese/veggie leftover soup for lunch.

I am yoga pants, blue long-sleeve tee, slippers.

I am creating...the last of my Christmas journal, and hopefully some scrapbook pages soon. Also have a Valentine craft idea floating around in my mind.

I am going...nowhere today. Feels nice.

I am reading...a Louisa May Alcott biography and a Ross MacDonald mystery.

I am hoping...this free-floating anxious feeling will dissipate soon.

I am hearing...the fan, the washer, and my keyboard keys clacking.

Around the house...washing sheets and towels, tidying up, looking at my study with tiredness, knowing it's time to once again clean and purge.

One of my favorite things...Sheldon Cooper, theoretical physicist, as played by Jim Parsons.

A few plans for the rest of the repairs, errands, knocking more stuff off the "to do" list.

A picture I am sharing...for anyone else who's a little tired of winter browns and grays:

Happy New Year to you!

Donna said...

Ah...for some reason that was a soothing read. Thanks for that and the wonderful photo. I'm ready for Spring.

Happy New Year! Gorgeous photo of the coleus. Cheered me up. It's dreaded cold here!

Mimi said...

Ooooh, I like the warm photo! I agree, nice and cheery.

Jim Parsons plays Sheldon so brilliantly - did you see the re-run last night? Hilarious!

and, tell me more about the LMA biography...
