For today...Tuesday, February 15, 2011.
Outside my window...sunny and 46°. Yesterday the temperatures were up in the 60's!
I am thinking...about what a nice birthday Katie had. She had so much fun at her skating party. I would like to thank all of you who stopped by to wish her a happy birthday.
(Did you know that Laura Ingalls Wilder's birthday was February 7th?)
I'm also thinking about the nice Valentine's Day we had.
I always enjoy Valentine's Day at the school. I like to see all the sweet cards the students exchange. Many of them (especially the younger ones) give me cards too. I like their cute little handwriting.
However, by the end of the day, the kids are pretty full of sugar, so I'm always glad when three o'clock rolls around. :)
Valentine's Day at home was nice too, although it didn't really go according to what we had planned. My husband was going to make Eggplant Parmesan for us, but it was so windy outside that a tree fell onto a power line across the street, knocking out our electricity. So, we called Papa John's and had pizza for our Valentine's supper! It was OK, but I was really looking forward to what my husband was going to make. We had a candlelight supper though. :)
God bless the men and women who work on the power lines! They have a hard, dangerous job, and they're out in all sorts of weather!
I am thankful...for our generator! It has come in so handy over the years we've been here. All we have is electric heat, so when the power goes out, we're able to run little space heaters to keep warm, and we can plug in the refrigerator to keep our food from spoiling. It's one of those things I don't really think about until we need it!
I am reading...Sisters of the Quilt by Cindy Woodsmall. I'm really enjoying it!
From the kitchen...my husband is planning to make the Eggplant Parmesan we were going to have last night.
One of my favorite things...a gift of chocolate on Valentine's Day!♥ Actually, a gift of chocolate is great on ANY day! :)
A few plans for the rest of the week...work every day 'til 3, church on Thursday, church on Sunday
A picture I'm sharing this week...
My husband just finished making these shelves for me. I think he did a wonderful job! ♥
The white pitcher and the flowers on the top were part of what he gave me for Valentine's Day yesterday. We also used the oil lamp last night while the power was out.
My husband painted both of the pictures, and my mom painted the pine cones on the candle.
I am so pleased with how everything turned out. :)

I hope you're all having a great week. :)
