Listening to :: Juliana narrate a scenario with stuffed animals on her bed down the hallway. And a documentary on technology and humanity. We are dorks.
Pondering :: The week ahead. Schooling, home-keeping, Ballet, Piano, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, book club hosting, meetings with friends and God-children. Remembering to balance activity with the pursuit of Peace.
Creating :: Plans for painting projects and late night paint parties for Aaron and myself. We find this is the best way to get it done. And a glass of wine makes it fun. I am certain every wall in the house needs repainting….eventually. Ah, and curtains to cover the television. The doors have been gradually broken off and finally needed to be tossed altogether.
Reading :: Gaudy Night by Dorothy Sayers. Almost done with this lovely little mystery book. Her prose is delightfu,l although it took me half the book to really gain interest.
Planning :: Spring gardening intentions. They are always grand and bountiful. Hopefully I can follow through this year. I have lettuces and kale in one box now. It is really a shame not to garden year round in these parts. My mother-in-law is currently harvesting tomatoes.
Wearing :: Black yoga pants, a knit tee and barefeet. Classy, I know.
Thankful for :: A beautiful celebration of our 12th Wedding Anniversary and 16th year of friendship. We spent Saturday together browsing and meandering. It was so pleasant. I have truly been blessed to love and be loved by my husband….and all of the ensuing crazy-beautiful loviness. For this I am utterly thankful.
