For Today. . . .

For Today...

Outside my Window… it is scary cold at -21 but the really bad part is the wind-chill which makes it feel like -36. They are telling us we are in for a heat wave however, they told us we just need to get through the next 36 hours.

I am thinking…that I will be working from home again today. It is just dangerous to go out.

I am thankful for…friends and family, my job and food on my table.

From the kitchen…I have two soups that I would like to cook up, I am thinking today is a good day!

I am wearing…yoga pants, a turtleneck and a long sweater, slippers of course.

I am reading…"Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea" it was a Christmas gift from the boy and very funny.

I am hoping…that it warms up so that we can take my nephew Jack skiing on Saturday!

I am hearing…The DJ's on the radio give away a trip for two to Cancun, Mexico. I didn't win. But I am still thinking I may need to get away.

Around the house…I need to create a new mantle display on my fireplace. I have two ideas that I am going to try today, I thinking kind of a winterscape, ideas and suggestions VERY welcome.

One of my favorite things…is the kiss good-bye in the morning when the boy leaves, that is how I wake up, my alarm clock.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…screening of "Defiance" tonight, gotta love Daniel Craig. Pick my nephew up for an overnight Friday and skiing Saturday. A friends graduation party Saturday night, "Revolutionary Road" and dinner with the boy and his parents Sunday.

I remember living in those "minus zero" winters. We're even a little chilly here in Atlanta this morning at 18 degrees! Soup sounds so good. I'd love to see what you do with your mantle. I have been struggling with mine ever since I took down the Christmas decorations. Stay warm and cozy!

I can honestly say I have never experienced weather that cold. I'm glad you're staying inside! It sounds like you've got a cozy day planned.
