FOR TODAY, November 10, 2008
Outside My Window... The leaves are sprinkling down beautifully. Well, beautiful until I have to go rake 'em up. There is a dampness in the air, and it's cloudy to the west. Rain today? That'd be OK, just not at school pick up time, please.
I am thinking... that if high school is even 1/2 as bad as Jodi Picoult depicts it in her novels, I'm glad we homeschooled.
I am thankful for... my home, even when the maintenance of it is apparently beyond me. It's such a nice little house. It deserves to be better taken care of.
From the kitchen... tonight will be a ham and potato fritatta, with a green salad. Unless I find a yummy new soup recipe to try!
I am wearing... blue jeans and a pink t-shirt. I'm barefooted at the moment, but I'll find something to put on these feet before long.
I am creating...a Commonplace Book to keep my notes from my reading in. I want something to be able to refer back to later. And I'm hand writing it, at least at the moment, to slow me down and make me think.
I am going... to straighten up my house this week, do financial statements for my parish, attend a flower arranging class, and a parish council meeting. Whew!
I am reading... Acedia and Me by Kathleen Norris, still. I also finished Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. It is our book club selection for this month and I needed to finish it to pass it on to another club member who didn't get a copy.
I am hoping... that I don't get sick. I am still sore and tired feeling. I have too much to do to be sick.
I am hearing... the washing machine and dryer going. I've got piles of laundry to do today, and I need to keep them turning over and not let things sit. PapaC is nearly out of clean pants for work, so those have to be done first!
Around the house...Why does every horizontal surface attract the maximum amount of clutter? How come the dishwasher is always the OPPOSITE of what I need it to be????
One of my favorite things...is a made up bed. So how come I don't just DO it every morning and make myself happy?
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Actually do a few rows on that darn purple afghan, it needs to be DONE. Get Flylady started again. This house is ridiculous. Pay bills. Work on church accounting. GET TO BED AT A REASONABLE TIME. Not 2 a.m. Ahem.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
