FOR TODAY, December 15, 2008
Outside My Window... It's cold, people! 30 degrees cold. And yesterday it was 77. The squirrels are huddling on my outside windowsill, which drives the dogs absolutely bonkers.
I am thinking... that having to get up and go out for your annual check up is a crummy thing on a cold day. I'm still trying to warm up from my foray out to the doctor's office. Oh, and how festive: Christmas and annual girl-type checkups. Go together? I think NOT.
I am thankful for...a day where I don't have to get out again until I go pick up the Smak from school. A few quiet-ish hours (remember the dogs!) to get a few Christmas gifts wrapped and tagged.
From the kitchen... Last night was grilled pork chops, roasted sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli. We're trying to be good around here until NEXT week. Tonight? I'm waiting for inspiration to smack me on the head, but it might be spaghetti and salad.
I am wearing... Black warmup pants, black shirt with grey and white flowers on it, plus a little bling. Black socks, black tennies. HEY, I LOOK LIKE THE SMOCK!!!
I am creating... wrapped Christmas gifts today. Not beautifully wrapped, mind you, just wrapped. Beautiful wrapping is one seasonal skill that has eluded me. Gift bags were MADE for MamaT.
I am going...NOWHERE until 2:45. I'm determined. I'm tempted, but I'm staying IN and getting some things done around here. So there.
I am reading... The same thing I was reading last week! That's how busy it is around here.
I am hoping... that I can get my table cleaned off before supper time. Every flat surface in my house is taken up with STUFF. I want it gone.
I am hearing... a Nickel Creek CD at the moment. Next is my EO11 CD. I LOVE the Rat Pack.
Around the house... none of those projects from last week actually went away! They will be gone this week. They will. They WILL!
One of my favorite things... is Juicy Fruit gum. Love it. Always have, always will.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Getting my house clean enough to put up the Christmas tree later in the week. Wrapping gifts for PapaC's family and mailing them off tomorrow. Weaving in the ends of all the "things" I've been crocheting and packaging 'em up. Girls night out party Tuesday. Book club Thursday. All good stuff.
Here is picture thought I am sharing... Anyone know where i can get some of these guys to help me out around here?
