Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY January 5, 2014

Outside my window… dark. It was in the 60’s here in northern California today which I know is the polar opposite of most of the country. Stay warm, y’all! Don’t go outside unless you absolutely have to do so!

I am thinking… about my 6 year tenure in the Upper Midwest/Mountain West and the sub-zero temps I had to endure then. It was miserable when I was pregnant with Daniel and we had -20F temperatures for three solid weeks. I remember driving to work wearing gloves with mittens over them and then socks over the mittens and my hands just ached from the cold.

I am thankful… for Jon taking Daniel on a Winco/Trader Joe’s excursion today to give me some quiet time; and also for letting me take off yesterday afternoon and this afternoon to get some quiet after dealing with a seriously crabby child who did not like having boundaries enforced.

In the kitchen… dishes to do. Wheeeeee!!!!!

I am wearing… plum-colored t-shirt and my new black sweats/yoga pants.

I am creating… this blog entry!

I am going… to the doctor tomorrow to make sure I didn’t end up with a concussion yesterday when Daniel launched himself back into my face.

I am wondering… about various things related to the Jahi McMath case. It’s semi-local news for me and has occupied the headlines here for the last month. It’s definitely sad no matter how you look at it and unfortunately has become a complete media circus instead of just being a sad case of surgery complications.

I am reading… The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything by James Martin, S.J. — I’m one of his fan girls.

I am hoping… resuming potty-training for Daniel goes well tomorrow.

I am looking forward to… Ladies’ Night Out on Wednesday.

I am learning whether or not I have celiac disease this week.

Around the house… cleaning to do.

I am pondering… the quote below among other things.

A favorite quote for today… “Seek grace in the smallest things, and you will also find grace to accomplish, to believe in, and to hope for the greatest things.” — Bl. Peter Favre

One of my favorite things… tabbies with excellent motors.

A few plans for the rest of the week: ABA therapy Monday to Friday for Daniel, doctor’s appointment for me tomorrow, Ladies’ Night Out on Wednesday night, and my massage on Friday.
