I am thinking… that I really should have eaten more sensibly last night when we went out to dinner.
I am thankful for… Pandora.com
From the kitchen… the dishes are piled up while potatoes and spaghetti squash await baking.
I am hoping… I hardly dare hope what I’m hoping.
I am reading… The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys, An American Saga by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
I am busy creating… cross stitching on Liana’s birthday blanket.
I am hearing… It Might Be You by Stephen Bishop on my Barry Manilow Pandora station, the floor fan running to keep me cool, and the house air conditioning unit.
Around the house & garden… I already tackled the Monday vacuuming, litter box cleaning and trash removal so I’m all ready for the trash pickup tomorrow. Last week I cleaned up about half of the backyard from last fall’s growing season; I plan to get the rest cleaned up sometime this week and hopefully tackle some more of the front yard. Today marks 7 days scorpion free, both inside and in the garage!
In other news… I bought daffodils and tulips last Thursday. I have three bouquets scattered about the house. Well worth the $14.00 I paid! Bill and I went out to dinner with friends last night (new restaurant, no plant-based entrees) and then back to their house to play cards for a bit. We had a good time.
One of my favorite things… cut flowers.
Weekly Overview… No appointments this week, so just the usual mid-week grocery run will probably be my only venture out the door. This week is tax week and cross-stitch week. We have TurboTax downloaded and the Quicken files transferred, so now it is just sitting down and actually doing it.
Liana’s blanket is coming along nicely. There are three poles of carousel horses – I have one pole completely done and two-thirds of the second completed. I worked another two hours on it this morning. I really do need to block Kat’s purple shawl yet; maybe I can fit that in sometime this week.
