Outside my window... I see dead brown grass and plants due to freezing temperatures for the past week.
I am thinking... of all the things I need to do before I leave for my cruise to the Bahama's in 2 weeks.
I am thankful for... warm socks and hot coffee.
From the kitchen... I'm loving a bowl full of fresh tangerines from my mom's tangerine tree.
I am wearing... black pants and a red shirt.
I am creating... the first of 52 weekly layouts for my year long photography project.
I am going... to 1) work on laundry, 2) organize my digi supplies in ACDSee, 3) spend 15 minutes decluttering.
I am reading... just started Same Different As Me.
I am hearing... Zach and Josh talking and watching TV in the family room.
Around the house... I have all the ornaments off the tree and I need the guys to pack it away.
One of my favorite things... this coffee recipe I found on Pioneer Woman's website. She calls it "Dulce de Leche Coffee" but I call it "Heaven in a Cup". LOL
A few plans for the rest of the week: Continue to get caught up around the house since the boys will be back in school, work on Wednesday, and a TB Lightning Hockey game on Thursday night.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing... we are on our ninth consecutive day of temperatures below 60 degrees. The next similar cold spell was seven days in 1956! This picture is my mom's tangerine tree. The trees are misted when the temperatures fall below freezing to keep them from falling below 32 degrees. It was 1 pm when I took the picture and there was still ice in the tree - absolutely amazing for Florida!
