Outside my window... 80 today! This weather is INSANE in February! Nina was outside yesterday playing in the sprinkler with friends. All the Bradford pear trees and plum trees are blooming. I'm not complaining - I LOVE spring, but it just seems crazy to have weather like this in Februrary!
I am thinking... about my to-do list for today - packages to mail, emails to write, pictures to print, etc.
I am thankful for... chocolate covered espresso beans.
From the kitchen... no clue, but it will be cooked on the grill!
I am creating... nothing will be created around here until cookie sales are over.
I am going... a wee bit insane from cookie sales.
I am reading... nothing now, but I'm contemplating picking up Johnny Weir's memoir. I heard him talking about it this morning on the Gayle King Show. I've been in such a reading slump lately.
I am hoping... that my cousin Lisa will find the extra support, meds, and freedom from pain that she needs from the palliative care folks she is working with now.
I am hearing... the wind blowing outside.
Around the house... a new motor and new tubing in the refrigerator to the tune of $300 this morning. Ugh. I can think of so many other ways I'd rather spend $300.
One of my favorite things... daffodils. I wish I had more planted in our yard. I say that every spring and then forget about it by fall when it is time to plant them.
A few plans for the rest of the week.... too much... jump rope, two Girl Scout meetings, elementary school science fair, early-release day from school, jazz-acro dance glass for Elise and Nina, a birthday party, CPR training, and a Girl Scout overnight trip. Maybe I can schedule in a couple hours of sleep mid-week.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing... Elise and her friend hard at work on their science fair project this weekend.
