Thank you Peggy.

FOR TODAY : February 2, 2008
Today is sunny and bright.   I am completely exhausted and it isn’t even noon.  Kyle left this morning.  We had to be at the airport at 4:30.  Coffee is my BFF today.

Outside my Window – Happy groundhog’s day.  Any hapless marmot who wanders out is bound to be stunned by the big burning thing in the sky.

I am thinking – How very unhappy I am with the GoDaddy super bowl ad and their advertising in general.  

From the learning rooms – My mind is turning to Lent,  Ash Wednesday is February 25th.

I am thankful for- A husband who loves me.

From the kitchen – I made a couple of loaves of bread last.

I am wearing – Brown pants and a black sweater.

I am reading – On Basilisk Station — still.

I am hoping – That Kyle has a good trip.

I am creating – Hannah’s first communion dress.  I am using my wedding dress and you can see the progress so far.  I am also putting together my 2009 planner… we aren’t talking about what happened to January.

I am hearing – The music on the radio.  Hannah and Josh are doing their phonics and Josh is driving me mad.

Around the house – Nothing exciting today.  Just the usual Monday crockpot dinner, ballet and CCD.

One of my favorite things – Coffee – I have a couple of coupons from Dutch Brothers thanks to my homeschool group.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week – More sewing, a little knitting and some work.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you –

  1. Thanks for sharing your Daybook and thanks for stopping by my blog! 🙂 I always appreciate kind comments; they’re little rays of sunshine in my inbox!

    Your kids are beautiful! How exciting to have one making first communion this year! Our oldest daughter will make her first communion next year and I’m almost beside myself. The last six and a half years went very quickly!

    Cheers from Nebraska and from a fellow Catholic! 🙂

  2. I enjoyed reading your daybook, too (thanks for stopping by mine). I am quite interested in your making your daughter’s First Communion dress from your wedding dress. I always wondered if I would make the baptismal gown & First Communion dress out of my wedding gown. Turns out I used the family heirloom baptismal gown that my grandmother made for my father and he & my aunts all wore it and then myself and my siblings and now all of my children, too. I guess we’ll see what happens in about 4 years when our oldest is making her First Communion. Maybe she will wear the dress my sister & I wore and I won’t have to cut up my wedding dress. Has it been at all bittersweet?

  3. I enjoy reading your blog and am very excited to see the 1st Communion dress that you are making. I love to drop in and read about what you have to say and that is why I tagged you on my blog. Please drop by and take a look.

    God Bless,
