January 25, 2010

Outside my window...sunshine! After a week of rain (something we're not used to!) the glorious sun is shining brightly down on us. The temps are a bit chilly...low 60's, but I'll take it. More rain in the forecast for this week, but it's OK...the rain is making everything so lush and green outside.

I am thinking...that the weekend flew right on by. Basketball, birthday parties, concerts, wine with was a just a really nice (and calm!) weekend.

I am thankful for...DVR. Sounds shallow, huh? I just love that we can tape anything and watch it later with no commercials.

From the kitchen...last night I made a great pot roast and risotto, so something MUCH lighter tonight. M has choir but because it's finals week, no basketball. I'm thinking a pot of potato soup and some homemade bread.

I am wearing...jeans, a long sleeved black t-shirt and tennis shoes. I've already been out visiting a few guards...and was home in time to usher the boys out the door for school. Time to shower and face the day.

I am creating...finished all of my orders from last week and got them shipped. I just placed a big silver order...once that comes, I'll get back to work. I'm taking a class that is challenging me creatively...and causing me many burns. Molten wax and silver are HOT.

I am going...welll, after I shower, I should run errands. But I might just hide out at home, catch up on some paperwork and work on the laundry.

I am reading...the book of Luke for bible study. Also, a stack of really old Bon Apetit's that are by my bed.

I am cross off some of the things from my 'to do' list this week. There are some time consuming things on there...renewing my passport (which expires the day before I am coming home, so it has to be done) is one of them.

I am hearing...cats meowing at the back door.

Around the house...the house is in pretty good shape, but the floors need to be swept and the boys bathroom needs it's usual clean up.

One of my favorite things...the morning sun, shining thru the windows in the front part of my house.

A few plans for the rest of the week: only 2 basketball games this week, a visit to the orthopedist for Alex, and I am on call in for jury duty. My number is pretty high, so I don't think I will have to report this time around.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...hydrangeas. In a pitcher. On the kitchen table. Sigh.

  1. Good weekend. Mine included a funeral, a wedding and my first Masses that I could play for! Conducting, rehearsals and a new parishioner meeting. And, yes, DVR when I got home and it is a miracle. I love it. Your pot roast sounded great. MOndays I work from home and I made beef stew in the crock pot.
    We all have so much to be thankful for. Just so we remember. And you do.
