Mug Shot: The Simple Woman's Daybook for Monday, December 17, 2012.

Outside my window … A rainy and dreary Monday; what Scottish people call “dreich.”

I am thinking...
 Well, I’m still having my coffee, so I’m still warming up to the idea of thinking. J

I am thankful...
for a roof over my head.

In the kitchen...  Wheat pancakes and eggs for breakfast. Not sure about the rest of the day yet.

I am wearing...

I am creating...
Going to try my hand at hand painted greeting cards this week. Not sure how they are going to turn out, but I’m willing to give it a try.

I am going... Nowhere today other than taking my mom to run errands.  It’s wet out and I’m minimizing my time on the road.

I am wondering...
if …only if.

I am reading... The Quiet Little Woman. It’s a trilogy of Christmas short stories by Louisa May Alcott.   

I am hoping...
for a great 2013.

I am looking forward to...
having a job that I love.

I am learning
… that trying to go at life on my own is the worst way to live.

Around the house...
Tidying up and trying to find my Christmas wreaths.

I am pondering...  taking a technology/internet sabbatical. 

A favorite quote for today... "...I guess any attention is good attention for a nutcase!" - Craig Ferguson

One of my favorite things... The laughter of children.  Ain’t nothin’ like it.  J

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Concert with the community band on Tuesday, choir practice on Wednesday, Celebrate Recovery on Friday.  Getting some workouts in.   Not sure what else.

A peek into my day...

Yeah, I know it's weird, but I think this mug is cool.

  1. Craig Ferguson would LOVE your mug!! I'm sure your greeting cards will be fantastic.

  2. Thanks. I really want one of those mugs (Ferguson is the best).

  3. nope! the mug reminds of that cartoon special that gave me nightmares...rikki tikki tavi or something like that about a mongoose. Of course Cleopatra might like that mug...

    1. Never saw Rikki Tikki Tavi. Yeah, I know the mug is weird, but I think it's cool...and I still want one. :)
