A Simple Woman's Daybook for today...January 5, 2008

Outside my's foggy and the sun is just barely beginning to color the sky.

I am thinking...I'm glad the holidays have passed & life is back to normal.

I am thankful for...the clean state that my house is in right now. I wonder how log it will stay this way?

From the learning rooms...A & K are back to school today...YIPPEE!

From the kitchen...maybe a week of soups and stews.

I am wearing...jeans and an ice-blue cable knit sweater.

I am creating...a Snap Fish photo book of the twins' firs year - yeah, I'm a little behind. The digital camera makes it so easy to slack because you don't have to have film developed to see the pictures. I also knit a little baby hat, for a friend, this weekend

I am shopping this morning, to work on Wed. & Thurs.

I am reading...Saveur Magazine's annual "100" It's a foodie mag. and this edition lists (with great & interesting detail) their favorite 100 foods of the past year. It's a very interesting magazine, few ads, & something interesting about local food, but also foods indigenous to other countries on EVERY page. It's literally a magazine I read cover-to-cover.

I am get my pantry organized today.

I am hearing...Franklin and the clink of buttons in the dryer. Sophie is watching Franklin and I'm doing laundry.
Around the house...Christmas decorations are still everywhere. We went to Boca Raton to spend the weekend with Dan's cousin and Christmas did not get put away. Another reason I'm a "Bah Humbug" - I hate putting the decorations away (mainly because I'm lazy).

One of my favorite things...a car interior tat is clean, and fresh-smelling. This usually lasts for 2 days.

A few plans for the rest of the week...maybe I'll bake cupcakes with the kids. Although, not before we officially say "Khodafez" (goodbye in Farsi) to Christmas.

Here is a picture thought I'm sharing...

I love the picture! Adorable.
Soups and stews sound good. I just love soup, I have some good recipes on my blog under the label, "soup."
I'm glad to get back to normal too. Actually, that's what I need to go and do. It's almost 10 and we haven't started school yet. Time to get dressed and dive in!
