2010 Week 6

Sunday, January 31st, was our 40th anniversary!

Friend Gina succeeded in rocking baby Zion to sleep after Monday Meal.


The desk looked the same, so I turned around and got this picture of the pool table in hopes that I can show you progress next week.

Every Wednesday 5 Minutes for Books has a giveaway. I won this book, intending to give it to one of my former ESL students, but I am reading it first. Can you guess where? I am amazed at how a page or two at a time adds up, or a row or four of knitting become a sock before you know it. Like they say "Inch by inch it's a cinch" or "Poco a poco se va lejos."

Thursday, February 4th, was the daughter's birthday.


Friday she was able to come over and create with clay in Dad's studio. About time, after all she got him started in pottery.

This morning, before daylight, we watched a dozen deer running around and coming very close to the house, eating whatever they could find, like the lower branches of the fir tree. Can you see the tracks of the herd in the fresh snow?

Fun week. Happy 40th anniversary. Awesome! Are you organizing? I feel like my house has paper piles all over and I just shift them around :o)

A Pool table as desk = genius!

Bathroom Reading – funny!

I love the photo of the yard with the deer tracks! The sky is spectacular blue and the flocked trees are gorgeous! Makes me miss the “pretty” snow of central Indiana. We just get so much snow here in Minnesota that everything is buried by this time of the year and we grow weary of it.

Happy Anniversary! Congratulations!

I love how you take a pic of the pool table to hopefully, motivate you! I've done that a few times on my blog, as well. I still have a bedside table waiting, as a matter of fact.

You have a beautiful home!

So y'all are ten years ahead of us in the marriage dept :-) Celebrations galore this week. Hope Leah had a good birthday.
Amazing photo of the house and snow, and yes you can definitely see lots of animal tracks!
I think a pool table would be just about big enough to sort all my papers on to get organized before filing them :-) Go Rita!

Love all those windows on your house! Isn't it nice being able to watch the deer like that from the warmth of your home?

I have one up on you - I have a mini laptop I take into the bathroom to check my email in the mornings LOL. I come from a long line of people who like to spend their "quiet time" in the bathroom - whether we really need to be in there or not!
