Outside my window…….it’s raining! Otherwise pretty quiet in my neighborhood this morning.
I am thinking…….about what I need to finish up before leaving for classes later today.
I am thankful for……a lovely, clean home (and the friends whose company over the weekend inspired such a thorough cleaning).
From the kitchen…..I’ll be boiling eggs and prepping tomorrow’s dinner ingredients after I finish this post. I also need to pull out some ground chicken for later this week and think about what else I’d like to cook or need to use up in meals this week.
I am wearing…..pjs, still. I’ll shower and dress for school later today. At which point I’ll be wearing cropped jeans and a turquoise top.
I am creating…..a simple baby quilt. I hope to work on it this evening after classes.
I am going…….to class this afternoon.
I am reading……..some chapters on counseling skills. It’s really interesting!
I am hoping……to finish all my reading before class starts, ha! Also to FaceTime with my sister and nieces at some point this week, too.
I am hearing…..Michael talking to a client, a cat carrying a toy around like a baby and “talking” to it.
Around the house…….A candle is burning, the cats are mostly quiet and I just threw a load of clothes in the washer. I feel productive!
One of my favorite things……the sound of rain on the skylights.
A few plans for the rest of the week…..include going to class this afternoon and Wednesday, to work on Tuesday and Thursday. I’m watching a friend’s daughter one evening while she attends a funeral. I may meet a friend for lunch on Friday and plan a weekend day trip with another friend.
Here is a picture I am sharing…….our table with chairs. A while ago I shared photos of the new table we bought (unfinished) and stained, but we hadn’t purchased chairs at that point. This is a late evening picture after our friends left, so it’s a bit shadowy, but you get the general idea. I’m really happy with the chairs we chose!
