i found this really cool post at the simple woman's daybook and decided to join the "for today" journal page. i thought it is a fantastic way to focus on the simplicity of the everyday moments & thoughts and will help me (hopefully) blog more often!
FOR TODAY... jan 26, 2010
outside my window... a clear cloudless day - 65°F and just beautiful!
i am thinking... these bits of journaling will help my effort to live in the here and now.
i am thankful for... keeping old friendships alive.
I am wearing... boot cut jeans, black long sleeve t-shirt & ramones all star chucks (a hand- me- down from my son who has grown so much these past months!)
i am remembering... that i got to scan some of my sister's "old" photos.
I am going... to get some brochures from the travel agency tomorrow.
i am currently reading... remarkable creatures by tracy chevalier.
i am hoping... gustavo keeps making good grades at school.
on my mind... finishing some freebies for this blog.
noticing that... making lists make me accomplish more things.

since already on the simplifying theme and if you remember my resolution for 2010, here's what i've done so far: i got rid of a lot of what was in my closet, this time I did not keep anything for sentimental value or because i want to fit into some of those clothes again one day. the goal was to purge my wardrobe and only end up with the things I do wear and really love. now every morning i walk in, i feel happy and i am liking my closet again! about my shoes..... well... i had a minor problem there....... i love my all stars & could not get rid of any of them but i do wear them all the time though!
love my all stars!
the office closet is next. this one really needs some de-cluttering. you know how it is.... i keep all kinds of things here like picture frames, board games, candles, gift wrap paper..... got to do it this week.
... and after that I'll move to my son's room and tackle his closet! yikes!! that is going to take some time and effort!
wish me luck!
in spite of all the cleaning and de-cluttering I've been reading tons of historical fiction books lately and find myself really enjoying it!
i think it all started with this victorian thriller called the meaning of night by michael cox which i found very involving since the very first pages, loved the characters, the gloomy atmosphere and the mix of crime, mystery, family secrets and betrayals! i've read the sequel too and it was even better! loved them both!
these nights I more likely grab a book than turn my tv on. i haven't found anything good on tv lately and there's always the dvr to record and watch later anyhow.
here's what i am reading now:
