For today...Monday February 8, 2010
Outside my window...The sun is trying to come out
I am thinking...About the things I would like to get accomplished this week
I am thankful for... My husband and my boys
I am wearing...Gray pants and a red shirt
From the learning rooms...Bible, Latin, Math, History, LUNCH!!!, Science Review, American Artist Study, Health, Grammar/Writing
I am remembering...Our vacation last summer with family, how nice it was!
I am going...To participate in a service project with my son
I am currently reading...Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock
I am hoping...To get a "new to me" dryer today
On my mind...Teaching my sons to stand strong in their faith
Noticing that...I need to clean my desk!
Pondering these words..."Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32
From the kitchen...Coffee, tea, chicken in the crock-pot
Around the house...Laundry, cleaning bedrooms
One of my favorite things...Reading books and blogs while drinking tea
From my picture journal...Thoughts of Spring!
Enjoy your Monday!

After Bi-Lo, I ran into Wal-Mart for a few items. The Post-It Notes, pictured above, were bought at Wal-Mart. They were a money maker also. They were 50 cents and I had $1.00 coupons for them. At Wal-Mart, I was able to find some Zip-Lock containers that were on clearance and I also had coupons for them.
It was a good grocery day. I am glad, because I need to buy a new dryer as mine gave out last week. It is so cold and rainy, it is hard to hang dry alot of items, so I have been going to the laundromat to dry clothes. It hasn't been too bad, but the industrial dryers are a little rough on some of our clothes.
We are gearing up for our movie and pizza night. It's a good night for it, because the weather is cold and rainy. We might get a few snow flurries tonight. We have the hot chocolate going as I type. Woo-hoo!!
We are also gearing up for the Super Bowl. I just love watching it. I am going to try a new salsa recipe for the special event. A few years ago we camped at Disney World during the time of the Super Bowl and it was so much fun. Alot of the campers decorated their campsites for the team they were cheering for. We enjoyed that!
Have a wonderful Friday night!

1 box Betty Crocker fudge brownie mix

Using foil to lift, remove brownie from pan; remove foil. With deep 2 1/2 inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut 14 brownies. Place brownie hearts on a cooling rack or waxed paper.
In microwavable bowl, microwave frosting uncovered on High 10 to 30 seconds. Stir; frosting will be thick and spoonable. DO NOT BOIL. Carefully spoon melted frosting over brownies to glaze, allowing excess to drip down sides. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles before frosting sets.
Prep Time: 30 min. Total Time: 2 hours 25 min. Makes: 14 brownie hearts
SPECIAL TOUCH: Mix 1/4 cup Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting and enough red food color to make pink frosting in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on High 10 seconds. Drizzle over chocolate-glazed hearts.
I got this recipe from a Betty Crocker calendar. These would make a wonderful special Valentine treat for your sweeties!!
Have a super Thursday!
