FOR TODAY New Year's Eve,
Wednesday, December 31, 2008
Outside my window, I see stark tree branches against a pale blue sky.
I am thinking about the year to come and hoping it'll be better than the last.
I am thankful for pretty much everything in my life, especially for the chance to be able to spend a bit more time with my husband.
From the kitchen tonight, I'll be making Pioneer Woman's Monday night stir fry. Yeah, that's right. I don't care that it's not Monday.
I am wearing a pair of Lucky Brand trouser jeans, a favorite old sweater and a pair of Roberto del Carlo foldover ankle boots in wine.
(Unfortunately, I'm kidding about the ankle boots. But they WOULD look really cool with what I'm wearing.) I'm also sorry I fib so much.
I am creating absolutely nothing at the moment. And I'm not ashamed of it.
I am going to continue to enjoy my time off from work this week.
I am reading The Ghost by Robert Harris.
I am hoping for a lot of things but will have to accept that I can't have them all. It would be nice to have one or two of them, though.
I am hearing yet another football game in the background. It used to bother me, but right now it means my husband is still around. I really don't mean to sound moribund. That's a link for Rich.
Around the house my holiday decorations continue to cheer me.
One of my favorite things is driving. Ok, it's crazy, I know. But give me a wide open road and a sports car with a lot of power and well, it's just plain fun, I tell you!
A few plans for the rest of the week include visiting Karen & Adrienne, taking in a movie and lunch with KathyJules, packing up the holiday decorations and having my mustache removed. I am totally kidding about the mustache; I just wanted to make sure you're all still with me.
Here is picture thought I am sharing
It's always the season . . . for solid decorating advice.
This is my very first entry in The Simple Woman's Day Book. It all began with a visit to Drivin' 55, a blog I visit daily. If you'd like to participate, visit this site but please note that the blog is on vacation for this week and will resume next Monday.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
