Outside my window … it is overcast and dull. But at least it isn’t snowing.
I am thinking … about the work I have to do this weekend: marking, writing, planning and assignments for the course I’m taking.
I am thankful for … a warm and cosy house. And for my husband, who doesn't mind driving all over town for our daughter.
I am wearing … jeans, a black shirt and a long grey sweater.
I am remembering … how much I enjoyed being a stay-at-home mum for the year I was on maternity leave.
I am going … to try to finish my “Let it Snow” quilt this weekend. I decided to take off and re-do one of the borders because it didn’t quite line up properly.
I am reading … The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb. It is a novel about the aftermath of the Columbine shootings. It’s amazing – as are his other two novels.
I am hoping … that I have some time to do what I want this weekend – sewing, knitting, reading..
I am noticing that … our old cat, Rex, meows like he’s in pain. It’s the Siamese cat in him. The sound is piercing and annoying – especially at 3 in the morning.
One of my favorite things … is having the house to myself for a couple of hours. If it’s any longer than that, I miss my family.
From my picture journal … this is a photo of a room at Orwell Corner Historic Village on Prince Edward Island. My mother and I visited the museum in the summer of 2008.
