Monday, February 13th
It’s the day before Valentine’s Day. I’m not one to go crazy for this holiday, but I do enjoy the clever cards and sending a little love out to my friends and family.
Outside my window…….it’s sunny and calm, my neighbors are walking their dogs.
I am thinking…….about the work I need to do this week, in particular the exam coming up on Thursday in one of my classes, my actual paid work and getting my house in order in time for bookclub on Friday (I’m hosting).
I am thankful for……coffee, good headphones and Prime music.
From the kitchen…..I have broth and some beef from the freezer thawing in the sink; I’ll be making a vegetable beef soup in the crockpot today.
I am wearing…..pjs, plus a long-sleeved t-shirt over top. It’s been chilly in the mornings lately, which I love.
I am creating…..a paper for my class this afternoon, a handmade Valentine for Michael and a little animated valentine for my nieces and nephews.
I am going…….to school later today.
I am reading……..Wired to Connect, by Amy Banks. I also should be getting Shrill, by Lindy West in the mail tomorrow. That’s this month’s bookclub selection, so I need to get cracking as soon as it is here!
I am hoping……that the exam on Thursday is not too painful.
I am hearing…..classical music through my headphones. I can just barely hear Michael on the phone and right now the cats are blessedly silent.
Around the house…….I’m going to be working on tidying up the bedrooms and doing some laundry.
One of my favorite things……is The Graphics Fairy website, where I get most of my vintage clip art.
A few plans for the rest of the week…..have the house totally sparkling by Friday evening, read the bookclub book, study for my upcoming exam, finish the paper for my class, start a running/jogging program.
Here is a picture I am sharing…….
Nathalie posted a very cute cat-themed Valentine. I thought I’d do the same. 🙂
