Busy Day!

So, yesterday I kept busy. Not that I sit around like a lump on a log every other day, however.
I got up and got dressed, got Alaina up and dresssed. Made and fed her breakfast. Made my decaf coffee. Did my Bible study. Studied my Spanish. Blogged. Cleaned up the kitchen. Unloaded the dishwasher and reloaded it. Ironed, folded and put away a load of laundry that was already dry. Played with Alaina. Made and fed her lunch. Put her down for her nap. Put a load of towels in the dryer. Changed the linens on my bed and Alaina's bed. Put my sheets in the washer. Changed the linens in the bathrooms. Got Alaina up from her nap and rocked her for a while. She just loves to cuddle! Alaina played with her upstairs toys while mommy straightened up our rooms. Made and fed her dinner. Had her pick up her toys downstairs and then upstairs. Got Alaina ready for bed. Cuddled with her while she had her bottle. Put her to bed. Read a magazine. Ordered some things online. Read some blogs. Went to bed.

Now mind you this is not the exact order everything happened in, but it got to Alaina's supper time (7 pm) and I couldn't believe it! It was time for supper and the evening routine! Amazing. Today seems to be going the same way.

Winter Blues

I'm looking out my window,
The snow is falling fast,
Discouragement is coming on,
I thought the snow had passed.

Take heart my soul!
I cheer myself,

This snow will not last long,
Spring will come
With new green grass,
And Winter lose its icy grip,
on Germany, at last.

I wrote this poem this morning as I looked out the window and found the ground covered with snow and more falling.
