Outside my window... a new layer of snow has fallen. How quickly we can go from warm, slushy days only to wake up to a cold morning which reminds us that it is ONLY February.
I am thinking... of how much I love Sundays, especially when my family sleeps in a bit.
I am thankful... for family and friends who help extend birthday celebrations
In the kitchen... cluttered but clean. I didn't do a really good clean up last night before bed.
I am wearing... fleece pyjamas and fuzzy socks. I hate being cold.
I am creating... a more structured but not rigid schedule for the kids and I on our week days. It'll mean a little less flexibility but hopefully instill some more responsibility on their part.
I am reading... The Wheat Belly Book (thanks to my sister's recommendation!)
I am hoping... to experiment with the above book and get myself and Doug off wheat for sure and possibly the kids. I know everyone is extreme about what they believe in but I personally like what this doctor says. And if his findings are true (which I presume they are) then I'm beginning to think it may be a healthier lifestyle for my family.
I am looking forward to... proving to my family that I can still bake and make good foods without wheat.
I am learning... to take joy in everything as often as possible. That's harder than it sounds.
Around the house... not as tidy as I like it. I'm thinking of some cube shelving for the living room to hold Sarah's toys and books.
A favorite quote for today...
One of my favorite things... listening to my daughters sing and play piano.
A few plans for the rest of the week... for sure some school, hopefully implementing the schedule/routine, and that might be it.
A peek into my day... hanging out with my family. Maybe a trip to the Science Center...
