Today Is a Good Day!

Feeling so much better!!! I had a really good nights sleep and got a few personal issues lined out today!

Outside my window...When we had the big snow last week I bought a squirrel feeder and some bird feeders to keep the wildlife in my yard fed while their food was covered in about 8 inches of snow. Today I had such a good time watching a squirrel being a Greedy Gus! He would run and eat a bunch of corn and then run to the suet feeder and reach his little hand into it and grab a big bunch of seeds and suet. He would start eating it and at the same time was trying to reach through with the other hand and get more....which he couldn't really do without slipping...but he sure gave it a shot! LOL!

I am thinking...that I need to hit the gym this week! I joined like 2 weeks ago and have yet to go there....RIDICULOUS!!! If not weights then at least some cardio and tanning....

I am hearing...American Idol! I can't believe I've never watched this show before...so good!!!

Around the house....Clean rooms....clean smells...and CLEAN DOGS!!!!

A few plans for the rest of the week...Aside from work and the gym....I really need to do some grocery shopping. I picked up a copy of Clean Eating Magazine last week and I'd like to make a few of the recipes.

A picture to share...

This is what it looks like when I blog...Jake loves to lay his head on my computer anytime it's open...actually he likes to lay on top of the computer...but ya gotta draw the line somewhere :o)

Ummm....so yeah...awkward....that is indeed Duct Tape holding my computer together....I've been looking for a new one....I just get so attached...

So happy for a great day at work! They seem to be fewer and further in between these days and with our city's current economic crisis it seems that I may have more unhappy coworkers in the weeks to come. At this point I'm just extremely grateful to have a job. However, it does make me really consider my future plans....

Snowy Day!

Outside my window... I see my patio table covered with 6 inches of white fluffy snow!

I am thankful for... my cozy home...It's so nice to be able to relax with John and the dogs at the end of my day!

I am hearing... The over-actors on CSI Miami...and even though it's corny I like it!

I am considering...my future plans...school, work, etc.

One of my favorite things... Coffee that's ready for me at 5am! I love the automatic feature on my coffee pot!

Trial Run

I've seen the Daybook approach to blogging on several other sites and I think I'm going to give it a try here. I get caught up in the mindset that everything I type on here needs to be profound....and let's be honest here...I'm not just overflowing with wisdom...that may explain why I never post! :o) Anyway...I'm not really blogging to enlighten anyone...I'm doing it as a way to highlight the events of my life and share a few pictures and thoughts along the way. So here goes:

Outside my window...it's dark and sleeting. The yard is tidy though since I cleaned up out there this morning. The dogs and rain have made a mess of the lawn and so I spread a bale of straw over it...Jake and Lola are not impressed!

I am thankful for... Everything. My attitude has been so yucky for a long time now and all of the sudden it's as though my eyes have been opened and I realize that I have absolutely nothing, not even the smallest thing, to complain about! There are so many people in this world who struggle...

From the kitchen... I made a great 15 Bean Soup with ham. Also made cornbread sticks in those cast iron pans that are shaped like a cob of corn. They're fun...and I like how crunchy they are.
