FOR TODAY, November 17, 2008...
Outside my window...The neighborhood is very quiet. All the kids have left for school, adults are either off to work or inside their homes going about their daily routine. The sun is shining and it's going to be another beautiful day.
I am thinking..about how fast the weekend went and that in one more week the holiday season will officially begin.
I am thankful...that I don't have to take chemistry ever again in my life. This weekend, I helped my son study for a biochem exam. It's been 30 plus years since I took biochem in college. I'm thankful and in awe of people who understand science and can apply it to making our lives better.
From the kitchen...Dan is out of town this week, so we'll have simple things for supper. . . soups and sandwiches, breakfast foods.
I am wearing...a black sweatsuit
I am creating...piles of packages from holiday shopping. It's mostly all done.
I am going...to be running around a lot this week, so this is my stay-at-home-day to work.
I am reading...Loving Frank, a fictional account of Frank Lloyd Wright. Still reading this from last week. I can only get in a chapter or so at a time in the evenings. I'm not sure if that's why the book seems to be slow-moving or if it's the plot line.
I am hoping...that my son does well on his exam tomorrow.
I am hearing...a clock ticking and the drone of an airplane overhead.
Around the house...I repainted the living room. Yes, the room I painted last weekend. The chocolate brown was way too dark, and the new soft celery green is relaxing and calming. It was worth doing over again.
One of my favorite things...when the milkman starts carrying the quart size bottles of eggnog for the holiday season.
A few plans for the rest of the week... Book Club on Wednesday, Bible Study on Tuesday, choir for Em on Wednesday, shop with my aunt for her new car!, haircuts, homework for kids, all the usual stuff
Here is picture thought I am sharing. . . this is my desk, which typically reflects my state of mind. As you can see, it is very full, very disorganized and needs attention. The same might be said for my house. There is laundry to do, bathrooms to clean, sheets to change, kids to feed. So I won't be blogging for the rest of the week. Have a good week, everyone, and I'll be back once I get my act together!
