Blessed Thursday...

This is the first Thursday all month that I've been able to be HOME on my day off...

January 3rd I worked - coaching a leader up in Deer Park.
January 10th I worked again, coaching a leader in Coeur D'Alene. Oh - and I totaled my car.
January 17th I was home most of the day, but had a doctor's appointment and an errand to the grocery store... having to be at an appointment at a set time is the biggest day-off-killer...
January 24th I was back in Coeur D'Alene, getting my possessions out of my totaled car and then spent the whole afternoon at the car dealership shopping for a new car.
Today, January 31st, I am home. ALL DAY LONG. I'm not even putting on makeup, people.

I have quite the to-do list today... considering how busy I've been and the fact that the past two Mondays (also days I can be home getting things done) my kids have been home. I never accomplish much when they're around, for some reason.

Lots to try to catch up on.

One of the things I ended up doing, even though it wasn't on my list, was shoveling snow off my deck. I'm SO over winter this year... SO done with snow. We're supposed to be in the high 30s and low 40s over the weekend and it's supposed to be DRY... I'm hopeful that I might actually see some dry, snowless wood on the deck. I did see grass in the front yard yesterday after a particularly sunny patch... it's the little things this time of year... still waiting to see some of the bulbs I planted last fall make an appearance in my front flower beds.

The laundry has been humming all morning long, and the oven has cooked roasted Brussels sprouts, eggplant parmesan and brownies so far. I still plan to make biscuits and something for dinner... I haven't decided what yet...

Gracie loves when I'm home... she follows me from room to room, helping me taste the stuff I'm cooking... playing in the snow while I shoveled. We're good friends, she and I.

Music is always playing... candles are burning. Working full time has made my precious time alone at home a celebration...

Beloved Thursdays at home... I am recharged and rested here...
