FOR TODAYOutside my window... hot, hot, hot.
I am thinking... about a sad scene I saw this morning. A fawn has just been hit and killed by a car and the mama deer was just standing there seeming like she didn't know what to do. Just sorta looking at her baby and looking at the cars going by. I burst into tears and can't get it out of my mind.
I am thankful for... wireless internet.
From the kitchen... on vacation for the week! But feeling inspired to cook when I get home.
I am wearing... a black skirt, a graphic tee and a citron colored, light sweater (it is miserably hot outside but the A/C is so cold!). And my Dansko sandals. Love 'em!
I am creating... again, nothing this week. But after a few weeks of feeling uninspired, I'm missing my sewing machine and looking forward to some time with it next week.
I am going... to see Tree of Life with my sister in a little bit.
I am reading... just finished Rosie this morning. I thought it was just okay as I read it, but now that I've finished, I really like it. I'll start a new novel this evening. I've also been reading Morning Sun on a White Piano: Simple Pleasures and the Sacramental Life. I heard the author preach at our church last year and was inspired to read his books. This is the first one I've gotten to.
I am hoping... for no rain for our family pictures on Friday morning.
I am hearing... background music, muffles of conversations, the whoosh of the milk frother
Around the house... I gotta clean the basement when I get home...
One of my favorite things... movie popcorn. It's so horrible yet so good.
A few plans for the rest of the week: swimming at Barton Springs, bat watching at Bracken Cave, family photo session, resort fun with my side of the family
Here is picture I am sharing: me and my sister's hedgehog boots. Who knew hedgehogs could be so snuggley! And cute!!
