Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

This is going to be a long one! Grab a cuppa.

The Simple Woman's Daybook and my P365 pics for this week:

FOR TODAY(Jan, 11th)
Outside my window... snow, not much, but the ground is white. Yesterday Cameron and I were looking out into the backyard at the animal tracks. We have rabbits, and likely anothe cat coming to torment Oliver through the window.
I am thinking... that, as much as I love having all my chicks in the nest, it's also nice to have the house to myself again for the first time in what seems like forever.
I am thankful for... so many things. I'm so blessed.
From the scrapbook room ... I've been very inspired by my Log Your Memories log book. I just wish there was more time in the day to get projects done.
From the kitchen... tonight it is Chicken Cordon Bleu - homemade. Yum!
I am wearing... black yoga pants, a black t shirt, and a black yoga zip up top thingy.
I am creating... a few layouts right now, well, not literally.
I am going... to the Chiropractor shortly and then to the grocery store. I also need to get to the music store to pick Spencer up a new piano book.
I am reading... The Vampire Diaries - yes, I'm still on the vampire kick.
I am hoping... that Matt has a good semester at school. He started back today. He's lucky. They had and extra week and Cameron wasn't happy about the fact that he had to go back, but Matt had another week. Ha!
I am hearing... the sound of the air filter in the fish tank.
Around the house... Christmas is back in the box but John still needs to get the trees back into storage. I wonder how long they will sit there until he gets it done.
One of my favorite things... my new log book!
A few plans for the rest of the week: back into routine here: cleaning, shopping, laundry, repeat. Hopefully some scrapping time mixed in there.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing ... my 365 pics for this week:

Monday, Jan. 4 - putting Christmas back in the box.

Tuesday, Jan. 5th - our first real snow of this winter season.

Wednesday, Nov. 6th - Oliver getting ready to go to the vet. Doesn't he look thrilled?

Thursday, Nov. 7th - I needed to take a "head shot" of myself for something.

Friday, Nov. 8th - candles, tea, a magaizine and the fire on. Does it get any better than that?
Saturday, Nov. 9th - Scrapping the day away.

Sunday, Nov. 10th - Spencer has some big decisions to make! Which University and programme will it be?
