I am joining up today with The Simple Woman's Daybook
The Simple Woman's Daybook for March 7, 2014
Outside my window . . . it's snowing. It's a nice, wet snow without wind and is just beautiful. It's been snowing since this morning and is supposed to snow for 16 more hours. I have nowhere I have to go and am happy to be home.
I am thankful . . . for a warm home, good books to read, and quilts to sew.
In the kitchen . . . I will soon be making Lasagna for supper tonight, using the meat sauce I made in quantity earlier and froze for such a night as this. You can find the meat sauce recipe right here and the lasagna recipe right here.
I am creating . . . a grocery cart cover for my grandson this week-end. I've never made one, so I feel a little nervous about getting it right.
I am going . . . to enjoy tonight and tomorrow at home while it snows. I have plenty of things to keep me busy!
I am reading . . . A Drunkard's Path by Clare O'Donohue for the Quilters' Book Club. It's a cozy mystery - the second in A Someday Quilts Mystery series. I'm enjoying it so far. Last Friday, I was off work because I had parent-teacher conferences the two nights before, and I read Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson - all 359 pages of it! I'm anticipating an interesting discussion at my next Raspberry Mountain Readers meeting. And I finished Susan Branch's A Fine Romance: Falling in Love with the English Countryside. I love all of Susan's books, but I think this is her best one yet. If you have never read any of her hand-lettered books with her lovely watercolor illustrations, check this one out!
I am hoping . . . for a foot of snow! The more snow we have, the better our chances of having a wildfire-free summer.
I am looking forward to . . . getting together with two of my sons and their families (my daughters-in-law and grandson). What fun!
I am remembering . . . lunch that my husband and I had with our youngest son last week. Good memories!
Around the house . . . I am continuing to create a grandchildren's room. Exciting to see it come together!
I am pondering . . . how best to teach my reading students for the remainder of the school year. I really want them to have excellent decoding skills and to become lifelong readers who love books!
A few plans for next week . . . meeting with my book club and with my Persian Pickles quilting group - such good times with friends. And getting my haircut. Hurrah!
One of my favorite things . . . getting together with my sisters once a month. Last Saturday we got together for a 10-hour Call the Midwife marathon!
