Day Book: Monday August 1st, 2016
Outside my window... It's 7:55 am and I'm on the patio. It's not 80F yet but it is very muggy, which is weird since we haven't had any rain to speak of in days. The birds aren't very vocal yet. The sun is starting to rise over the rooftops.
I am thinking... that today is Domestic Monday so I shouldn't be on the patio all morning.
I am thankful for... my sister emailing me some pictures from her vacation. She never does that so it was a welcome surprise this morning. Middle son's girlfriend sending me a text late last night to. check in on me and tell me that she loved me. Awww! She is golden. I call her "my Girlfriend Not Quite In Law"!
From the learning rooms... School starts next week for Youngest Son who will be a freshman in high school. This whole week I am making him get up at 7:30 am to prepare him to get up at 6:00 am next week. He is NOT a morning person. He is volunteering at the library this morning. Daughter is starting her last week of coding camp. Girlfriend Not Quite in Law works her last day at her job this week. She is moving to Tallahassee next week to attend college at Florida State University.
From the kitchen... I need to write a menu for this week. I boiled eggs first thing this morning.
I am wearing... pink flowery PJ pants and and old orange T-shirt as a top.
I am creating... ugh, nothing!
I am going... nowhere today!
I am reading... "Sudden Prey" by John Sandford.
I am hoping... that Greg will remember NOT to refill his Sodapalooza cup and walk out of the store without paying since it ended yesterday!
I am hearing... the birds, who have woken up. A car in the distance. Ah no, it was a small plane!
Around the house... my son is up and has fed the cats already. Chores are waiting for me.
One of my favorite things... well it's not typing this post on my Kindle Fire! So my favorite thing of the week would be my laptop. It's an HP ProBook. It runs Windows 7, configured to look like Windows XP. Maybe I should call this Vintage Monday!
A few plans for the rest of the week... Grocery shopping, and I'm going on a Wildflowers and Butterflies hike at a local park on Saturday. Otherwise, I should have plenty of time to work on projects.
Here is the picture I am sharing... Sunset on the Atlantic Coast, Pays Basque, France (taken by my sister).
