The Simple Woman's Daybook, December 3, 2012

For today...Monday, December 3, 2012
Outside my's been dark for a while now and dry. The temperature was milder today than last week. It could have been an April day.
I am thinking...about how grateful I am that a potential banking problem was avoided!
I am thankful...for the electric space heater in our living room that keeps us comfortable.
In the kitchen...there was leftover pizza that is now on my plate as I type this. :)
I am wearing...a fleece cardigan-type jacket. Soft and warm.
I am creating...ideas about how to be consistently on task. For me, that doesn't mean the same number of tasks per day, etc., but I'm looking for ways to be productive on the majority of days even when energy levels change due to the fibromyalgia. I'm thinking about boundaries and margin and making sure I take the occasional day(s) of rest as needed.
I am try to remember to do my Daybook more often!
I am wondering...what gifts to buy for Christmas.
I am hoping...the weather will be good next week for our trip to pick up our two college students from the airport -- *next week*! I can't wait!
I am hearing...the space heater cranking out warmth while our two cats are sleeping all curled up on the couch beside me.
I am looking forward to...everyone being together for the Christmas break.
Around the is quiet. Time for relaxation.
A favorite quote for today...(I love this one!) "Always kiss your children goodnight, even if they're already asleep" -  H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
One of my favorite leftover pizza!
A few plans for the rest of the, mailing packages, laundry, a doctor's appointment for a recheck after bronchitis last week.
A picture thought I am sharing...

       This picture of our cats was taken six years ago!
Enjoy these early December days!
