Company means a flurry of cleaning and today I'm using the rest of the day to finish up what I didn't get to yesterday. All of this means almost no reading or bloggiesta projects have gotten done. It's not going to happen tonight, either, with Downton Abbey and Sherlock both on!
Here's What I'm:
Listening To: Podcasts - I didn't listen to one minute of Shirley this week. I really must get back to it but with some many interesting choices of podcasts, it's hard to do.
Watching: The new season of "Sherlock" and "Downton Abbey" on PBS and lots of college basketball.
Reading: I will finally finish Possession, probably tomorrow, then I'll be picking up A Different Sun by Elaine Orr for an upcoming TLC book tour.
Making: I think the only thing I actually made this week was oatmeal cookies. BG continues to be the supper king - he even made lasagne one night!
Planning: Finishing up some reorganizing and redecorating of the boys' rooms. I'm not sure I'll be able to get everything I want done until it's warm enough to get furniture outside to paint but at least everything will be where it needs to be.
Grateful for: Wonderful in-laws. I know how lucky I am to have in-laws who care about me and who have always considered me family. After thirty years, that should go without saying, but I know that in a lot of families, it doesn't.
|On Saturday mornings, the line will be out the door!|
Feeling: Optimistic - we've had some good news on several fronts this week and winter is already more than half way done!
Thinking: A trip to the fabric store is in order. I'm feeling the need for new window treatments in a lot of rooms.
Looking forward to: The Super Bowl even though I don't have a horse in the race and BG's birthday this week. Which means that for the next nine months, I'll get to call him "old" again.
