Daybook April 9, 2011

Outside my window... a gray blue sky and very wet grass.

I am thinking... about my friend Stephanie. In just a few days she will have a new daughter. I can't wait to meet her sweet baby girl!

I am thankful for... all the generous people that helped me celebrate my birthday this week. They showed me much love and kindness.

From the kitchen... Mediterranean chicken and pasta salad from The Good Carb Cookbook: Secrets of Eating Low on the Glycemic Index. I have never made this recipe before, but I have made a lot from this cookbook. It is one of my favorite cookbooks. 

I am wearing... my pajamas. Lavender flannel pants with snowflakes, a pink t-shirt, and a lavender fleece jacket.

I am creating... still knitting the purse. I really hope to finish this next week. I have plans to knit a baby hat and a headband next. 

I am reading... The Emerald Atlas (Books of Beginning) by John Stephens. I mentioned in this post  that I like books about orphans. I have read a bunch of great reviews about this book so it went to the top of my wish list. Luckily I have a sister-in-law that loves books as much as I do so she picked it up on her most recent trip to Target. She is letting me read it first. She is cool like that! 

I am praying for... dear friends waiting for a baby to adopt, a great friend that will celebrate her 35th birthday this Wednesday, Stephanie, my grandparents, and several friends that are suffering.

I am hearing... Chris talk to Thomas about buying mulch.

Around the house... looks like we may paint several rooms this spring. Exciting!

One of my favorite things... free audio books on my ipod to listen to while I knit. 

A few plans for the upcoming week... Mass, soccer practice and game, a trip to Ikea, and homeschool park day. 

A picture I am sharing...
