Outside my window... it's 7:20 a.m. It doesn't smell like smoke this morning, it's already 70F/21.1C. Someone's already using either a chainsaw or a leaf blower... something that makes a lot of noise, I can hear it through the closed windows. Arrgh.
I am thinking... that I'm going to take a break from posting every day this week. I'll probably just do a big recap post later on this week.
I am thankful for... Greg getting on his plane this morning. He just texted me that he had the worst airport experience ever and that he barely made it to the plane. He's flying United so I told him to hold off on volunteering his seat until they offer at least $1,000, lol.
From the learning rooms... My daughter is done with her classes! Well, she still has some finals to turn in this week. She will be honored at a luncheon later this week along with the rest of the top 3% scholars of our county and her dad and I will attend as her guests. Youngest Son doesn't have anything going on this week, but he has his Geometry End of Course exam early next week so he'll be cramming. I'm assuming that Middle Son is in the middle of finals as well, but I haven't talked to him in about a week.
From the kitchen... I didn't cook this weekend so there really are very few dishes. They'll keep until I'm in the mood to wash them. With Greg gone most of the week, I don't feel as pressured to know in advance what to cook. The kids and I will probably have breakfast for dinner once and then we'll see.
I am wearing... black and turquoise yoga pants, my grey and turquoise walking shoes and a dark grey V-neck Tshirt. My comfy uniform!
I am going... nowhere today!
I am reading... I'm in between books, I'm probably going to read one of the thrillers I downloaded from the library yesterday.
I am hoping... that Greg's trip goes well! He hates air travel.
I am hearing... the air conditioner is running, whatever power tool is being used somewhere, the cats are plotting something in the kitchen, I'm better go check.
Around the house... My daughter is asleep. I have been very remiss in vacuuming and sweeping so the dust bunnies have multiplied. I'm hoping that by trying to limit my blogging this week, I'll actually accomplish something.
One of my favorite things... Eh, I don't know. I'm running out of favorite things! I guess I could say that right now I'm addicted to the generic saltines from Aldi ($0.75 a box). They're surprisingly delicious.
A few plans for the rest of the week... well, my PLANS are to do chores and finish some projects, but don't be surprise if I report that I did nothing but catch up on TV shows and books, lol. Aside from that, I'll try to bike to the library to return a book and see if they have any coupon inserts, I have grocery shopping/errands day, and the luncheon for my daughter. She'll be attending Grad Bash at Universal Studios on Saturday so I'll have to follow up on my plan to not sleep much on Friday night so I can fall asleep super early on Saturday and get some sleep in order to be picking her up at 3 a.m. So I think that means I won't go hiking on Saturday.
Here's the picture I'm sharing...
Gah! I got nothing. I've already shared all my pictures in other posts! So I'm posting a picture taken on April 24, 2009: the first encounter between Male Cat and Mean Kitty. She was so tiny and cute back then! We didn't know she'd turn into a very cranky, very large female!
|Oh now I want another little kitten!|
Have a good week!
