Outside my window…….it’s sunny and the weedy backyard is taunting me.
I am thinking…….about my schedule for this week and how I’m going to accomplish everything on my to-do list.
I am thankful for……a very flexible work schedule, the ability to attend graduate school and only have to work part-time, reasonably good health.
From the kitchen…..not much right now, although I’m planning on trying a new recipe for dinner tonight. And I may also bake the rest of the batch of ginger cookies — the dough is hanging out in the freezer while I decide if I’m baking it or freezing it.
I am wearing…..shorts and a tank top.
I am creating…..chaos wherever I go. 😉
I am going…….to the vets later today, to school tomorrow, to get my oil changed tomorrow morning, to take an important exam (must pass to graduate) on Friday.
I am reading……..the same things I mentioned in my last post, as well as Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. Well, I need to start that book, actually. It’s for bookclub this Friday, which I am hosting.
I am hoping……to do well on the exam!
I am hearing…..a classical playlist I enjoy on Amazon Prime. Classical music and good headphones allow me to concentrate on my work even when my husband is on the phone all day.
Around the house…….the cats are lounging about, some clutter has accumulated that I really should take care of so that my tidying on Friday isn’t such an ordeal.
One of my favorite things……is watching cats enjoy a new box.
A few plans for the rest of the week…..in addition to the errands/tasks I mentioned earlier, I’ll be studying for that exam, working on some around the house projects and, if I have time, working on some quilting, too.
Here is a picture I am sharing…….of some of my meal prep yesterday. I think the salad base ingredients are so pretty as I chop them up!
