Daybook: The Ice Storm Cometh Edition (Jan. 31, 2011)

Outside my window…it’s gray with a bit of snow on the ground. Ice, snow, and, apparently, the end of Civilization as We Know It are expected tonight through tomorrow….

I am wearing: A teal blue cowl-neck sweater dress from Kohl’s; socks (I had black boots on earlier)

I am reading: Wench, Mary Poppins, Incendiary, The Hidden Face, The Return of the Native (yes, it’s a lot. Dipping into these at random) Oh, and The Poisonwood Bible. Big fan of that one.

I am thinking…that I really don’t want to commute in ice.

I am listening to...The Original London Cast Recording of Mary Poppins. (The show is coming this spring so I have to learn the music!)

I am grateful for…my wonderful friends. I got a letter from H today, and all of my friends came to Earnest on Saturday night, bearing the most beautiful bouquet of flowers I have ever had! (Pic later)

I am creating…I have the itch to write. But no good ideas are presenting themselves.

To Live the Liturgy…Feast of St. John Bosco today (patron saint of boys), Candlemas (the official official end of the Christmas season).

I am hoping and praying…for a non-scary weather week, and more good Earnest performances!

Around the house…got to take the trash out before the storm.

From the kitchen…I’m doing Weight Watchers now (I’m in Week 2) as a result of a lot of prodding from the last hospital visit. So tonight’s dinner is citrus-orange chicken from my Betty Crocker Quick and Easy cookbook that I got when I was in college. It’s great for WW because it has all the nutritional info at the bottom so you can just enter it in to the points plus calculator on the website. Also planning on making egg salad (for sandwiches).

One of my favorite things…new music.

A few plans for the rest of the week…Earnest Th-Sat.; BalletMet’s Cinderella on Sunday, before THE SUPER BOWL that night, featuring My Steelers! 🙂 🙂
