Outside my window... I can't tell because Greg is working from home and has left the curtains closed so he doesn't get a glare on his laptop :( I could walk around the house to check out the other windows but I'm being lazy. It's 9:36 a.m., the sun is up, it looks like it's sunny outside, some neighbors are mowing their lawn or doing something else with heavy machinery. It'll probably rain later on as it's been raining every afternoon.
I am thinking... that I don't feel like celebrating the 4th of July at all this year.
I am thankful for... sleeping in this morning :) I got up at 9 a.m. and only because the eye doctor's assistant called me to confirm my appointment on Wednesday.
From the learning rooms... Youngest Son is still plugging away on his French class. His teacher emailed me a couple of days ago and was very complimentary. He's completed his AP World History Summer Project and is about 4/5th done with his Language Arts Honors Summer Reading Project. Daughter is still reviewing Calculus so she can retake the math placement test for UF and be allowed to register for Calculus, the class she really needs.
From the kitchen... It's no surprise that piles of dishes are waiting for me... yes, I'll wash them today! I haven't made a dinner menu for the week so I have no idea of what to cook for dinner. I'm sure it'll come to me!
I am wearing... I'm still in my PJs, a set of soft purple shorts + Tshirt that I had bought at Aldi recently. They're really comfy.
I am creating... I can't think of anything that I'm actually being creative with right now.
I am going... to the library to return my book that's due (I did try to finish it yesterday but I just couldn't manage to make myself care about how it ended so I gave up) and I suppose to RaceTrac to get refills.
I am reading... I need to go through "The Simple Path to Wealth" again and highlight the paragraphs that I really want to keep in mind. Then I need to restart and finish "The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing". Fun, fun, fun.
I am hoping... that the neighbors will be reasonable with their fireworks, although one house has been firing them since Friday night already. I'm highly sensitive to noise and of course the cats don't like that either.
I am hearing... the AC and some muffled yard work noises.
Around the house... Greg has a conference call at 10 a.m. but it should be a short work day for him today. He said he was going to work on the front porch gutters some more. The kids are still in bed. The cats are either sleeping or playing with their cat toys.
One of my favorite things... the garden hose reels that I put in the backyard. It's so nice not to have a tangle of hoses on the ground anymore and not to have to untangle them each time I want to water something.
A few plans for the rest of the week... Aside from a couple of errands today, I'll stay home today and tomorrow. We live 1/2 a mile from where the fireworks are shot so we can see them from our front lawn. Greg leaves for a short trip to Vancouver on Wednesday but returns really early on Saturday morning. I have an eye doctor appointment and I'll go shopping after that. The next day I'm having breakfast with a friend. No plans for the weekend as of yet.
Here's the picture I'm sharing...

Have a good week!
