The Simple Woman's Daybook for Friday, April 3, 2009

Outside my window
It is cool and grey, but beautiful. All the trees are blooming, and the cool weather means that the early blooms have held on while the later ones bloom, too. It is supposed to be 70 degrees by Sunday!

I am thinking
That there is a lot of bumping and bruising that goes on in this job, and I never remember this fact from session to session.

I am thankful for
The fact that we are all doing fine, and have a roof over our heads and jobs to support ourselves. Also, I'm thankful that Aidan has started swimming lessons, and has a good teacher. I think he might actually learn something.

From the kitchen
Dick. As in, nothing. Unless Kevin makes it.

I am wearing
I have worn those Cole Haan heels every single day since the last time I posted a daybook, but today, it seemed like I should give them a break. So, heels, but not as awesome. I need to get my spring clothes out of storage this weekend.

I am creating
Master Knitter swatch #3--the seed stitch! So far, I am not what you'd call an expert seed stitcher.

I am going
To get my toes done, unless I get one of those Jay e-mails that starts out "hey Betsy . . ." In which case, I will be going back to my office.

I am reading
School's Out

I am hoping
That people will LEAVE ME ALONE for the rest of the day, and not heckle me about the provider tax.

I am hearing
Quiet office sounds, including the staff chatting about their weekend plans.

Around the house
We are going to work on the raspberries this weekend, and maybe plant a blueberry bush or two. And pull some weeds. And mulch.

One of my favorite things
I'll get back to you on that one.

A few plans for the rest of the week
If I can just get a real dinner on the table a few times, with us sitting down and eating it together, it'll be a good week.
