Stop in and visit Peggy over at Simple Woman's Daybook for more daybooks.



For Today... Monday, March 23 2009

Outside my window... Rainy and cloudy, but temps are going up into the 50's, so I'm not complaining. Hey, we all know it could just as easily be snow:)

I am thinking... how blessed our family is with the birth of our new little granddaughter, Sophia, last Thursday. And what a blessing it is that Jess was able to fly to Pittsburgh to help Lisa and Ben through the first week of having their baby home.


I am thankful for...getting to spend an hour or so talking to our son, Jonathan, last night who is in college in Milwaukee and all the good things that are going on in his life:) Also, hearing him tell about his little buddy nephew,Sam, and how much fun they have together.

From the kitchen...I am wanting to rearrange a wall of shelves (kind of an open pantry) for a different look-still have to be functional- yet decorative. hmmm...I think I will ask the advise of my lovely and creative daughter-in-law, Kristen:)

I am wearing... pajamas- yep, same answer every week:)

I am reading...my newest issue of "Birds and Blooms" magazine.

I am hoping...that my mom decides to come along when my sister and her family to visit us the week before Easter.-- and for warm spring weather that week:)

I am creating...still planning to get some cards made ahead.

I am hearing...tires hitting water on the road. Rain coming down. Good Morning America on tv.

Around the house... Starting to decorate for Spring and Easter.

One of my favorite things...a steaming bowl of oatmeal on a chilly morning.

A few plans for the rest of the week...It's going to be mostly rainy, so inside-the-house work--- still purging and organizing rooms.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Here is our new little granddaughter, Sophia Genevieve Grace, born last Thursday, March 19th.
And here is our "big boy" grandson Sam, now 17 months old:)
I am one happy-(and blessed) Grammy!

I hope you have a wonderful week:)

What a beautiful new baby, fresh from God. They are His reward. God bless you and your family.

I always enjoy hearing about your day. I had oatmeal this morning too! You have such beautiful grandchildren. I pray I live long enough to see mine (if the Lord doesn't come back before that). I will just be happy to see Mary happily married and have a husband to care for her as we will be in our late 60's or early 70's when she is on her own:) Sophia's name is beautiful. Genevieve Grace are the 2 names of my mom's aunts. They were very dear to her. I met Genevieve as a small girl but she is gone now and Grace died long before I was born. They were wonderful Christians, so I know I will see them some day! Have a wonderful day dear friend. Love, Elena

You have two beautiful grandchildren. What a blessing! I got to hold our friends' newborn son on Saturday and can't wait to hold him again.

It sure is rainy and windy today. We were spoiled by the nice weekend. :)
