I stole this idea from GreenStyleMom, who also stole the idea from another blogger. Here are my notes for today. 

Outside my window... small covering of snow on the ground, gray clouds, bare trees. It is really cold today.
I am thinking... about investments. I'd like to have some 'play money' to be able to do some day trading.
I am thankful for… the baby sleeping for the last 2 hours and Gage playing with toys by himself. Gage and I had a nice peaceful breakfast, then I have been able to catch up on the news while drinking a cup of tea. 
From the kitchen... oatmeal, english breakfast tea, chicken nicoise planned for dinner, empty dishwasher.
I am wearing... jeans, brown wool sweater, big sweatshirt over top because it's cold in here. 
I am creating... an updated list of daily to-do items to work around my new nursing schedule. Yes, it is in excel...yes, I'm a geek.
I am going... to the library?? I'm not sure how motivated I am to take the babies out in the cold weather, but it is always a good activity for Gage.
I am hoping... we can get rid of Mia's oxygen tank soon. 
I am hearing... "Up, up, up" "Go, go, go" "Papa, papa, papa" - the constant refrains from my little guy. The radio playing in the livingroom - they just switched from the morning news to music. The soft hum of the space-heater. The drumming beat of Gage's feet as he runs from room to room.
Around the house... evidence of children everywhere. Cars in the kitchen, baby swing & train set in the livingroom, bassinet in the bedroom. When did my house start looking like a toy store? A messy toy store?
A few plans for the rest of the week… valentine's crafts with Gage, return borrowed maternity clothes, bath time with a glass of wine, movie night with Gage while Danny is gone. 
A picture to share:
