It's Thursday and a warmer than usual day at temps. above 50 degrees. But tomorrow will tell another story--Cold and more snow.

A mid-winter thaw always makes me a bit nervous due to how heavy melting snow can be.  Also, so many accidents on the roads lately due to ice, melting ice, fog, misty rain, and this morning was no exception. It has been a scary drive to work every day this week.

Last night I wanted to organize a desktop counter in my kitchen. It continues to be a "catch-all" for anything and everything. I'm not liking that. I don't love a desk in the kitchen but would prefer a counter top with cabinets or just all cabinets. We never have a chair scooted up to the desk so there is the empty space where a chair could be and I really could use that for storage if it had cabinet doors or pull out drawers. Aside from a complete kitchen renovation, I guess we'll have to keep the desk but organize it better. I got a desktop organizer that I put a lot of stuff in folders and in the folder compartment, bills in another section, stamps and return address labels in yet another compartment and pens/pencils in that compartment. I like it.

I have a breadmaker in a box in the empty space underneath and I should find a place to store that since we don't use it. I might use it in the future but for now I'll store it. I saw hubby cleaning the kitchen cabinets with Murphy Oil yesterday so that was nice. I have a couple of small things he can do while he's home and not working.

We had a beef Pho for supper last night with turkey sandwiches and that was really good. The rich beef broth was wonderful. Tonight, hubby is making something since I volunteer tonight and won't have time to cook.

Tomorrow I'm taking the day off from work for my birthday and I am going out for coffee with my friend. I'm looking forward to that very much. I don't know what the rest of the day will bring but I know it's not shopping! I think R & R is in order after a stressful week.
