Friend Making Monday

So I keep seeing this MckLinky thing on several blogs.  A blog hop to help increase your reader base, meet new people and find more blogs to read...not like I don't have enough already but there really is some good stuff out there.  Some great writers. 
So this one seemed simple enough.  I like being given a theme when I am at a loss for something to blog about on a given day.  Figured I would give it a try.  Not sure if I got all the links right but I guess we'll see what happens. 

Ok, couldn't get it to work the way I wanted so go check out {aefilkins} and Moments of Mommyhood.

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... it's snowing little soft cotton balls.  A steady stream of the white little puffs is blanketing my car.  Just more work to do later when I need to go out.

I am thinking.... it would be nice if it would warm up a little around here.  We had some really great weather for a week or so but now we are back to the below 0 temps and I just want it to end.

I am thankful... for my family and the support of so many wonderful friends.  They always seem to be there for me just when I need them.

I am praying...for relief from financial strains, good health and well-being for all, may the poor victims in Haiti be delivered from their suffering.  Maybe that's too broad...I don't know.  Everyone needs a prayer from time to time.  And for all the worry warts out there...stop worrying about the things you have no control will pass you by way too fast and you will be left with too many regrets.

I am reading... The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.  Thank you Oprah.  It's a good book but so fricking long.  I will get through it but there are other things that need to be done first.

I am creating... the greatest work of art known to man.  Ha.  I wish. I am working on my novel though and much more steadily than I have in the past.  It will get finished this year.

From the kitchen...there is nothing.  I can't even smell the coffee anymore even though it was just made.  The pot is silent, the water tap is not dripping.  It's pretty darn quiet.

Around the house... the cat is sleeping on my bed.  My daughter is playing quietly with her blocks and the TV is tuned to Treehouse.  I think Toot and Puddle just ended.  There are little knocks and rattles coming from my daughters bedroom as she finds another toy to drag into the middle of the living room.

One of my favorite things... spring.  I want spring back really bad.  The warmth, sunshine and just all round good vibes the season brings.  Love it, love it, love it.

A few plans for the rest of the week... work a few days, get some passport photos taken for me and my daughter...then go to the passport office to get the paperwork sent in.  Then just wait.  Hopefully it warms a little this week so I can go out and do something with my daughter.


  1. Finacial hardships abound. I think though we needed it to teach us how to get back to family. Happy FMM!

  2. Love your description of the snow. I can almost see it. I've wanted to read that book too, but haven't gotten around to it. Hope you are enjoying it even though it's long.

    Happy FMM!

  3. Ugh. I am so ready for winter to be over as well! Good luck on your novel. Wish I was that ambitious. Happy FMM!

  4. I am going to have to check out that book. Hope you have a great week! Happy FMM!

  5. Love your post!! Thanks so much for coming by and commenting on my photo!


Send me some love...and I will send some back!
