The sun shining through the bedroom window looks warm this morning. At least it is above freezing at 38 when I went out to do the chores.
No ice to break this morning meant the temp stayed above freezing all night. I emptied 2/10ths inch out of the gauge from the rain of the overnight.
Back inside I did housework then tackled my office desk to get all the old filed away and make room for the new years paperwork. I also finished my shredding for this year so 2004 is really gone now. I like to look through the papers as I shred as they bring back memories of things from 10 years ago and what we were doing then.
I got my desk all cleaned off and ready for more "piles" of 2015 "stuff" !!!
The temperature outside has been in the mid 40's today with a light breeze making it feel colder.
As I watched the bird feeders in the back yard I saw that the Gold Finches have moved back in. They are very particular eaters and will only come around if there is thistle seed in one of the feeders.
I do have some bright color around the yard that probably won't last through the cold temps of this weekend but they are pretty now. These Daffodils have been fooled by the recent warm temps.
After chores and supper I did the month ending paperwork for January. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount I sold during this month this year compared to past Januarys , but in most years I don't get to go every Saturday in January. I thank God for the business He allowed during this past month.
I also payed weekly bills and made a grocery and baking list for this week.
#2 son stopped by with the rest of the papers I need to figure his taxes so hopefully I can get to work on those later this week.
I caught up on my blog reading tonight and am planning on an earlier bedtime. I keep thinking I need to start gradually getting into an earlier getting up time so when the time goes forward at the beginning of next month it won't be such a shock for my system. I am usually up between 8 and 8:30 now depending on my plans for that day.
I thank God for the blessings in my life today and everyday as I strive to be the person He wants me to be. Thankful also that my friend Susan's little boy recovered quickly from his bout with asthma yesterday and is home and resting tonight.
Good Night and God Bless.
