Day Book for January 30, 2010

Outside my window... It's raining and cold. What a yucky day!
I am thinking... How I wish the weather would make up it's mind and either be winter or spring. It's hard to have a couple of days of spring like weather and then BOOM winter time has hit again.
I am thankful for... The snow missing us. I love snow, but not here in Georgia.
From the learning rooms... We've been studying about Venus in our Science this week. On Thursday night, we were able to spy the planet Mars. We were hoping to see the beautiful full moon and Mars together, but with the clouds we missed it this time. 
From the kitchen...
I made the most wonderful cream filled cupcakes, yesterday. There were so easy and yet delicious. I have a pot of  black eye peas on the stove for supper tonight.I am creating... I have the pattern for this bag (the pink one in the middle) cut out. I have some black with polka dot fabric, I'm going to work on this afternoon.
I am reading... I just finished The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper: A Novel by Kathleen Y'Barbo. I highly recommend this book. I couldn't put it down and I'm positive that you won't either.  I started Going to the Chapel by Rebecca Kelly. This is  a continuation of The Tails from Grace Chapel Inn.
I am praying...For a family in our church, whose husband, father, and grandfather passed away earlier this week. I'm also praying for a mom, who is having to watch helplessly as her oldest child is battling cancer.
I am hearing... My husband on the phone with a Pastor and Monkey playing with his Air Hogs helicopter.
Around the house... I have a couple of loads of laundry going right now. I have some light dusting and vacuuming to work on.
One of my favorite things...The first sign of spring flowers pushing their way up through the ground.
A few plans for the rest of the week...
We have church tomorrow, my husband's teaching the teen class. Hopefully, our school week will go according to plan.
