Daybook, 2/11/13

Outside my window... The sun is just starting to rise.  The sky is slowly turning from pitch black to that lovely midnight blue color.

I am thinking... about the announcement this morning that the pope is resigning at the end of this month.

I am thankful... for having some quiet time this a.m.  It doesn't happen too often.

In the kitchen... At some point today I will be making a yummy carrot cake for work.  We were supposed to have a potluck today for Fat Tuesday.  We got a snowstorm and now the office building is closed. 

I am wearing... Warm clothes, long johns and hand knit socks.

I am creating... Alas, I'm not feeling very creative right now.

I am going... Nowhere today. Roads are bad and travel is advised against. 

I am wondering... Why people have to be such buttheads on the internet.  One of the video podcasts I watch is going on hiatus because of cyberbullying.

I am reading... Nothing at this time.  I haven't been in the mood to read this week.

I am hoping... That the next snowstorm we have is NOT on a publishing day.

I am looking forward to... Spring!!!

I am learning ... How to drive on these snowy winter roads, particularly at night.

Around the house... Nothing too terrible exciting around the house.  I'm learning that I really like puttering in the kitchen and making glorious creations and disasters.

I am pondering... Lent and the upcoming conclave.

A favorite quote for today... One of the greatest freedoms is truly not caring what everyone else thinks of you.

One of my favorite things... My son's excitement when he woke up this a.m. and found out there was no school.

On and off the needles … Still those squares for the swap.  At least one square needs to be redone because it's too big.

I’m currently spinning …:-( Nothing.

Things that bring me joy this week. One thing that brought me joy this week was watching my son make Valentines.  Another thing happened last night.  I made a new to me bread recipe and my dh said that it made for the best pork sandwich he ever ate.  That is was a real treat.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Nothing too exciting.  Going to keep working on the squares for the swap. Lent starts this week. Oh and I'm sure I will be puttering in the kitchen some more. 

A peek into my day...

This was from last night.  I tried making a copycat version of the subway bread.  It was quite tasty.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so jealous of your snow days. I want one!

You'll have to send me your bread recipe since it turned out so well.

And I love that quote. It something I aspire to on a daily basis. I'm better as I get older, but still way to conscious of what others think.
