Outside my window...cloudy and dreary, and I think it's windy and cold.
I am thinking...about how I am going to provide food for my family when my kitchen contains neither a fridge or a stove right now. Or a floor.
I am thankful for...a husband who tries his best to be a do-it-yourselfer. It makes him crabby, but it saves us a lot of money!
From the kitchen...anything we can microwave. Or perhaps cereal night. The kids love that. Greg does too.
I am wearing...my purple pajamas and cherries robe. I got up with the chickens this morning because I couldn't sleep.
I am creating...a plan for breakfast this morning. Perhaps a picnic on the living room floor. Last night we dined in the kids' bedroom.
I am going...to Ikea to get new kitchen chairs today so that we don't wreck our new (coming soon!) kitchen floor with the old ones.
I am reading...just finished "A Tale of Two Cities" by Dickens last night. I often found it hard to follow, but by the end, I got really into it. It didn't help me that I could only read 10 minutes at a time. It often took me that long to figure out what was going on again.
I am hoping...to have a functional kitchen (floor, stove, new refrigerator!, usable chairs) ready to go by next weekend. We're hosting Easter here for the first time! Yikes!
I am hearing...some morning-commute traffic muffled in the distance. Sometimes I miss commuting. These days, I rarely drive anywhere alone. And I only get to listen to the radio for 5 minutes. Or the Imagination Movers.
Around the house...Since the kitchen (and therefore, the breezeway, living room, hallway and kids' room as well) are completely a shambles, I am determined to have a sparkling clean bathroom. And clean laundry. Now that our water is turned back on.
One of my favorite things...coffee. Really good coffee. Really good coffee that I don't have to make myself. For free. Ahhhhh....
A few plans for the rest of the week...overnight company (my parents!), a meeting at church, attend a baby shower for my sister Cassie, work in the 5's Sunday School room, read scripture in the service, provide a main dish and salad for a potluck gathering for visiting friends (With no stove. Can cereal be a main dish and fruit snacks a salad?). And that's just the next 3 days. Send help.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...Spring has arrived...at the conservatory!
