For Today, May 24, 2010
Outside my window... it's windy, which, I suppose, keeps it from sweltering this early in the a.m. It's humid and hot. But lots of pretty sunshine.
I am thinking... about all the work I have to do. The house WAS in pretty good shape at the start of last week. The key word being "was". Now it looks a wreck and I've got to start bringing back some order.
I am thankful for... my husband, who doesn't expect me to cook every night. Last night what he really wanted for supper was scrambled eggs and toast. How did I get this lucky????? (Plus I got luckier--he cooked it!)
From the kitchen... nothing, based on the contents of my refrigerator. I've got to make out a menu plan for this week and then a grocery list. We've got plenty of frozen meat, but NOTHING to go with. I think tonight will be grilled pork chops and roasted cauliflower. Especially if I don't make it to the store first.
I'm am wearing... Khaki shorts, orange flowery polo, sensible sandals for working in,
I am creating... mailing packages of granny squares for my Ravelry swap. I have 5 more packages going out today. Woo hoo!
I am going... no where out of the ordinary this week. Yayayayayay! Regular errands, but no where else, really. I'm looking forward to it. Well, I will be if I can make this place less crazy.
I am reading... So Brave, Young and Handsome by Leif Enger. I should finish it tonight. I wish I could write prose the way he does.
I am hoping... to get my Latin flash cards made. Yes, I'm taking Latin. And no, it's not easy to make an old brain remember new things.
I am hearing... the Texas Tornados sing "Hey Baby, Que Paso". Love. Love. Love.
Around the house... Order from chaos. (Wish me luck.) Yard work. Help PapaC organize his stuff so he can get it off the kitchen table. (Wish me luck x 2.)
One of my favorite things... is my pink stapler. Isn't it weird how such a small thing can bring happiness to an ordinary day. It didn't cost much more than the boring black one and it is so silly that it makes me smile every time I use it.
A few plans for the rest of the week: STAY HOME. Don't make any more plans, except for plans for the Memorial Day weekend--a long weekend for PapaC. That will be fab. I hope over the weekend we can do some painting. If I get it taped off, he'll get out the paint.
Words I'm pondering "And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
Yeah, ya'll come over for tea, and I'm sure I'll look JUST like this. Oh, I wish.
Happy Monday, ya'll!
