For Today, December 8, 2008

Outside My Window... It is dark. The snow melted from the rooftop but is still on the ground. Brrr!!

I am thinking... about Twitter. More on that in another blog post.

I am thankful for... My darling husband. Today we celebrate 7 years of wedded bliss!

From the kitchen... a quick and easy meatball-and-noodle recipe with fresh veggies, homemade pumpkin pie for dessert. At the moment I'm drinking good hot coffee with Sweet Italian Cream.

I am wearing... My emerald green bathrobe, long-sleeved pink cotton nightie, and my fuzzy slippers.

I am creating... Logo for work and my background design for Twitter. That's it. I still didn't do any digi scrapping this weekend!

I am going... to be celebrating later our anniversary with my husband. Very special!

I am reading... Meatball Sundae by Seth Godin. It's a marketing book and pretty interesting.

I am hoping... I can make sense of Twitter and not see my weekend "twittered" away like this past weekend!

I am hearing... The very soft hum of the computer and silence. In a few minutes, I'll be taking my shower and listening to talk radio, as usual.

Around the house... Christmas decorations that still need to go up. My advent wreath, which I need to pay more attention to.

One of my favorite things... snuggling with my hubby while watching a movie. We recently rented Star Wars I, II, and III. It was a welcome view compared to some weird movie I rented about Bob Dylan that didn't seem to be about Bob Dylan at all.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I will be attempting to create digital scrapbooking pages and giving thought to what I will be baking for Christmas. I'm going to be low-key and not bake as much but I do want to bake a few things. I may put up our small Christmas tree!

Here is picture thought I am sharing... Last year, I asked Mickey if he'd set up his photography studio and if we could take some photos of us snuggling. Yes, it was staged, but truly mimics what we usually do many nights, when watching a movie together. I wanted to scrap a page that commemorated our "snuggling." (Yes, I'm a big romantic sap!) So, we took some photos and this was one of them. I am extremely blessed to not only have a husband who loves me like this, but indulges my crazy requests such as "Hey! I've got an idea! Let's turn the couch toward the camera and snuggle while it's self-timed to take photographs!" Yep. I'm a character, alright. :-)

Awww - how sweet! Happy Anniversary! (Did you mean to marry on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception? or was that a bonus?)
