~snowman building~ On Monday this week, the weather was gorgeous enough to take the kids out and play in the snow. Because it was so nice the snow was perfect for making a snowman. This was our creation for an wonderful hour of being outside enjoying the fresh air. Good thing we got outside because by Tuesday afternoon the snow and the deep freeze returned.
~sleep~ I'll be honest, this has been one rough week with the dayhome. New kids starting and having a bit of a hard time adjusting. Lots and lots of hysterical crying on the part of the baby had my nerves absolutely frayed and left me exhausted by the end of the day. I am so thankful for sleep to rejuvenate and am thankful I, for the most part, fall asleep quite easily and sleep through the night. And since I had the flu last month, I am tiring out earlier in the evening and therefore able to get to bed earlier than before. I am determined to keep this new habit going and not let myself go to bed so late during the work week.
~great service~ for my birthday last month my youngest had got me a really cute pair of velvet ankle boots. I usually wear an 8 1/2 which is what she bought but they were very snug. When we went to try and exchange them they didn't have any. But the store ordered a pair from their computer and I had a choice of pick up at the store or home delivery for free. Of course I took the home delivery. And within the week the shoes arrived and fit perfect. No trip to the mall yet again. Very thankful for that!
~new slippers~ what is it about new socks or slippers that just feels so darn good? My old slippers were starting to see better days. But I'm quite particular about what I like in a slipper and I wasn't finding what I wanted. Then one day I just happened upon a pair when I wasn't even really looking for that particular item. Now my feet are happy again being surround by soft and cushy slippers. Something so seemingly small really can be a blessing.
~It's Friday!~ I'm oh so glad it's Friday! Because of the week, this gift of a weekend is especially appreciated. Looking forward to rejuvenating. I've got plans to relax with coffee and books, spend time with my Honey, enjoy good company for lunch on Sunday.
