Another week ahead

FOR TODAY (Monday, February 16)...

Outside my's still before sunrise, so its rather dark outside my window..

I am thinking...I have a ton of housework to get done today.

I am thankful for...the relationship I have had throughout my life with my many women seem to have "issues" with theirs (jealousy, competition, anger...whatever), and my mom and I have always been tight and right...for that, I'm grateful.

From the learning rooms...well, I learned this week that Abraham Lincoln, prior to signing the Emancipation Proclamation tried to "buy off" the slaves of the southern states and proposed that they be made to leave the country entirely. (I, personally, had NO IDEA)

From the kitchen...This week's menu includes Italian sausage sandwiches, Mediterranean chicken, smothered pork chops, steak & sloppy joes

I am wearing... my pj's and's only 6:30 am.

I am creating...a "to-do" list for the week

I am get myself a cup of coffee! (No plans for any outings this week)

I am reading..."Backstabber" by Tim Cockey (the final installment of his Hitchcock Sewell series)and "It Wasn't Always Easy but I Sure Had Fun" by Lewis Grizzard

I am hoping...that this lingering cough will soon go away completely!

I am hearing...the coffee brewing and the computer humming.

Around the house...I have tons of housework to do; dishes need put away, the bed needs made, the bathroom needs cleanin', I have laundry piling up (but, that won't get done until tomorrow)...

One of my favorite things...a good, strong cuppa joe!

A few plans for the rest of the week: can't say that I really have any...laundry will have to be done tomorrow...I told my neighbor I would help her set up her computer...

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Thanks for stopping by my blog - it's nice to meet you! I'm glad you mentioned Lewis Grizzard. I need to find another of his books at the library soon because I know it'll make me laugh. :o)

You asked what is in bloom in the pic on my blog ... I'm not sure which pic you mean, but I'm guessing the white blooms. Those are duck potatoes and grow wild all around our pond. I love them!

Ok - my bad! Your comment notification showed up in an email with today's daybook so I got confused. Now I know what picture you mean. LOL It's ginger.
