{daybook: 12.28.10}

Outside my window...  lots of sunshine today!! 100% chance of rain (is that possible?) tomorrow though.

I am thinking… about simplifying and decluttering.

I am thankful for...  the wonderful Christmas we had with our family.

From the kitchen… tonight's dinner is a BBQ meatloaf and potato & parsnip mash. Also in my kitchen are LOTS of sweets. I'm hurrying to finish them by New Year's so we can start some kind of sugar detox after that!

I am wearing… comfy brown cords and one of my favorite tees.

I am creating… lots of photographs these days, with the new 35mm/1.8 lens I bought with my Christmas money! Also, some digital art and other fun stuff to update the blog in the near future.

I am going… nowhere today but my front yard!

I am reading… trying to finish up a Christmas novella I'm reading, and restarting Real Food for Mother and Baby to do some research for SO.

I am hoping… for a fun New Year's weekend with the family and looking forward to the fresh start of January.

I am hearing… the trash truck outside, and Gigi playing pretend in her room.

Around the house… lots to unpack and put away, decorations to take down and toys to be gone through.

One of my favorite things… all the peanut butter balls (aka Buckeyes) I've been eating lately.

A few plans for the rest of the week… looking forward to getting together with one of my oldest friends tomorrow and letting our girls play together.

Photo for thought…
