Outside my window … a sliver of sunshine after 2 days of torrential rains! Thank goodness … yeesh… _uacct = “UA-4888259-1″;urchinTracker();
I am thankful for … constant support and guidance, a change of heart recently and that our basement didn’t flood – lol
I am thinking … about how to convince my bugz to eat their toast! They will eat 3 pieces of toast and peanut butter EACH, but when you add up all the leftover crusts, it’s really only one piece. I’ve tried toasting it just a little (so that the crusts are soft but the bread is warm), spreading the “pea budda” all the way to the edges, yelling, bribing, threatening…
I am creating … nothing, really. My garden is thriving though, despite the immense weeds that this rain has brought out. I need to hit that puppy with a garden claw ASAP!
I am celebrating … the successful execution of my mom’s 50th birthday weekend
From the kitchen … nothing last night, as I was trying to catch up on the mountain of dishes that somehow grew to epic proportions. We went out. Tonight though – fresh steamed chard with butter and apples, some kind of bison (have I told you that story yet???), and spicy potatoes.
I am wearing … my pyjamas while I drink my coffee and wait for my monsters to EAT!! Then I need to get my butt in gear, because we need to leave in 45 minutes!
I am reading … nothing. I just finished Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. It’s the first in the series that the television show True Blood is based on. It was … okay. Good trashy reading, not a lot of meat or insight, but it was only $8 and good for the hammock.
I am hoping … to one day be caught up on my housework, or at least hire a maid!
I am hearing … the hum of the refrigerator, and the quiet chewing of cranberries and TOAST – success??
Around the house and yard … much cleaning and weeding to be caught up on. I need to go through the bugz clothes once again and take out everything that they have outgrown. I swear, they are actually catching up to their peers!
One of my favourite things … running. I haven’t ran in, oh, 5 months?? I made one of those goofy promises to myself: if this happens, I’ll start running; if it doesn’t, I won’t. Well, it did happen (goal achieved!) and now I have to start running. It kind of feels like a punishment when I re-read that … lol, don’t worry – I actually want to start running again!
A few plans for the rest of the week … a carotid dopplar test tomorrow, dinner with a good friend on Friday, and Cher’s wedding on Saturday!!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you:
While I have aged a lot since this photo was taken, my mom has not!
Happy (belated!) birthday Mom!! xoxo
