Monday, July 3
Outside my window…….birds are chirping away in the back yard and every so often a car drives by out front. Quite a few walkers and runners are getting their steps in before the temperature and humidity make the day unbearable.
I am thinking…….about what I need to do this week for work, school and around the house.
I am thankful for……coffee, general good health, and the ability to work from home.
From the kitchen…..the coffee pot is tempting me — I brewed a pot, but haven’t yet poured myself a cup. I should remedy that! Not much else happening here today — I cooked a couple of meals over the weekend that have provided plenty of leftovers. My goal to stay on top of the fridge is to not cook again until we get through a decent amount of what is already on hand. Except we are grilling tomorrow for the 4th. 🙂
I am wearing…..lounge pants with penguins on them and a tank top. I’ll probably get dressed in something a bit more presentable later today, but for now this is comfy and cool.
I am creating…..articles for my work and a long term plan for the backyard.
I am going…….nowhere today, if I can help it.
I am reading……..Vanity Fair by William Thackeray and The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker. Both are audio books. I also have a biography of Martin Luther and Big Little Lies, but I haven’t started either of them yet <– physical books.
I am hoping……that I can get to weed-eating the backyard this afternoon, evening.
I am hearing…..birds chirping and my husband on the phone.
Around the house…….the cats have staked out their desired sprawling zones.
One of my favorite things……is a day off in the middle of the week!
A few plans for the rest of the week…..grilling and puttering around the house tomorrow. Yoga on Wednesday. GI scope for my husband on Friday.
Here is a picture I am sharing…….patriotic potatoes! I mentioned my recent obsession with tiny potatoes. Here is what we had on hand this weekend (we’ve eaten some since this photo was taken).
