Outside my window... dark and rainy and deliciously cool. I don't even know what the weather is like tomorrow.
I am thinking... I was having some profound thoughts earlier... now I can't even remember what they were...
I am thankful for... rain.
From the kitchen... I made chicken pot pie filling today but ran out of flour for the crusts. That certainly put a damper on my big dinner plans! But now I have dinner figured out for tomorrow. I've also been loving these breakfast egg salad muffin melts (I add green onions also!) fixed in the toaster oven that was a gift from my mom (admittedly to Matt for Father's Day, but I think I'm reaping more of the benefits!). Still working on using up pantry and freezer items. Making slow progress.
I am wearing... a dark grey tennis skirt, a citron colored athletic top (that transitioned nicely from running to tennis) and my grey running hat (that I love!). And tennis shoes.
I am creating... a baby quilt. I love the top but the quilting is driving me crazy. I'm going to unstitch a bit tomorrow, and hopefully finish this week!
I am going... to get my hair cut. I love getting my hair cut!
I am reading... I've finished several books since the last time I did this (see Goodreads if you are interested). The Social Animal which is okay. Also listening to Daring Greatly as an audiobook. Really good, but I can only process it a bit at a time. I'm one page into Blue Like Jazz. I need a good fiction novel.
I am hoping... for a good night's sleep. I've been really tired lately.
I am hearing... grackles all. day. long. Makes me want to get out my BB gun and shoot at 'em! But right now I only hear the dishwasher.
Around the house... the house is running so smoothly right now. I painted my dining-turned-family room a few weeks ago. Still need to hang artwork and such. We have a lot to get done on the outside. We got hit with a massive hail storm (seriously, I've never seen hail that big! It was crazy!) and need a new roof and paint job. Thank goodness for insurance!
In the homeschool room... mostly on summer break. A little math about twice a week, still daily reading, and Kate starts an online writing club studying Charlotte's Web in a few weeks. I need to get into the homeschool room to clean/organize and start planning for next year.
Something that irks me... gnats. And fruit flies!!
One of my favorite things... Desert Pepper Black Bean, Corn and Red Pepper Salsa. I think I would die without it.
A few plans for the next week: Invisible Fence guy coming to fix what the tree pulled out, a playdate, a birthday party, a swim meet, a bar mitzvah, and our normal swim practice/tennis/tutoring kind of stuff.
