Day Book: 2/20/17
Outside my window... it's 57F/13.8C outside at 7:40 a.m., I just opened the windows. It's a little foggy. There is a cardinal at my feeder but I can't take a picture through the window screen and I don't want to scare it away by going on the patio... the neighborhood is quiet although I can hear some distant traffic on the highway.
I am thinking... that today won't be Domestic Monday since everybody is home!
I am thankful for... my family being home :)
From the learning rooms... not sure what is going on with the kids this week as we didn't discuss it last night. They both worked on their schoolwork throughout the weekend. My daughter said she had a lot of studying to do. She's on hold with her apartment quest in Gainesville for now, although I don't remember why? But she's handling it and my ex is going to be her guarantor, as he has been with her older brothers.
From the kitchen... I did manage to do most of the dishes last night as dinner was cooking. And I did write a menu for the week yesterday, yay! It should be smooth sailing as long as I keep on top of the dirty dishes every night.
I am wearing... my PJs. It's a pink floral Vera Wang number that I got on clearance at Kohl's and with Kohl's cash last year and it's really comfy.
I am creating... a French blog for my family :) I need to upload this past week's pictures and caption them in French some time today.
I am going... on a walk with Greg as soon as he's up and we've had breakfast. We're not sure where we're going but probably a local trail.
I am reading... I'm stalled on the "John Le Carré biography" and after reading some reviews where they lament that the 2nd part of the book is a detailed account of all his arguments with his publishers I'm thinking that I'm done with it. The minutiae of the biography is insane. I'll probably read a book by John Le Carré next, entitled "A Delicate Truth".
I am hoping... that my brother and his GF are able to purchase the house they're going to visit this afternoon! It's a chalet in Provence that's currently an Airbnb property. It would be their weekend getaway and eventually their retirement home, as they are paying off their apartment in Marseille next month. It's exciting for them!
I am hearing... birds calling throughout the neighborhood and the cats eating their breakfast.
Around the house... I'm the only one up (well, with the cats!), the kids and Greg are still asleep.
One of my favorite things... Being the only one up in the mornings :)
A few plans for the rest of the week... it's a quiet week. I'll be taking my son to his annual check-up, going grocery shopping/running errands, and Greg and I will go visit another state park. That's about all that's planned. I'm going to text Middle Son later on to see if we can meet for lunch this week or weekend.
Here's the picture I'm sharing... this is the chalet that my brother and his GF are hoping to purchase.
Have a good week!
