For Today
January 21, 2015

Outside my window... the sun is shining brightly with nary a cloud in the sky. The trees are swaying gently. A chickadee is on the bird feeder. The temperatures have been 60+ the last few days. Unfortunately we will be back in the 40's and 50's the next week or so. I'm very thankful for the flip flop wearing days we've had recently.

I am thinking... that lowering my Mountain Dew consumption isn't fun. I'm substituting with sweet tea and coffee, but I'm not sure how much less of sugar I'm consuming. The only difference is that it is not HFCS, which is good, but in actual grams, I'm not sure the increase in reflux is worth the non-HFCS. 

I am thankful... that in my 30+ years, a majority of my memories are happy ones.

I am wearing... navy leggings, baggy navy and white gingham OCBD, hair down, Georgia necklace, tortoise and gold watch, (when I leave I will add sweater jacket and nude flats). 

I am creating... a vegetable filled menu plan.

I am going... to run errands as soon as B gets back with the car- Target and Trader Joe's.

I am wondering... if white gloves will ever need to be worn again. Miss Janice tweeted today that wearing gloves while drinking tea is a faux pas. I would so heart it.

I am reading... Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good (affiliate link) by Jan Karon, Garden & Gun magazine, and another book (see below).

I am hoping... to begin swimming again next month. Hopefully the gym won't be so crowded.

I am learning... to tidy with help from The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Anna mentioned it on her blog a few months ago. I'm slowly getting through the tiny book. It's really good though.

Around the house... finding spots to put my stock of cosmetics and bath products. I purchased several little tubs, but where to put these tubs is finding much trouble. Someday I hope to have a little space. 

In the kitchen... breakfast was leftover cornbread and jam; lunch is salad; dinner is going to be baked beans, roasted carrots, and kale salad; leftover pudding pie for dessert.

A favorite quote for today... "To truly cherish the things that are important to you, you must first discard those that have outlived their purpose." Marie Kondo

One of my favorite things... drinking sweet tea in blue or green Mason jars.

A few plans for this week: celebrating M's acceptance into her school of choice with her favorite cake, working, reading, and church.

A peek into one of my days from this week... 
Trader Joe's carrot trio pre-peel and roast. Aren't they gorgeous?


  1. I had to giggle about you and your beverages. A never ending battles!

  2. It is such a battle! I want caffeine but my esophagus doesn't agree. ;)

  3. Those carrots DO look gorgeous!!
