For Today... March 9, 2009
Outside my window... There is SNOW on the grass! It's overcast and gloomy.
I am thinking... about perusing one or both of the books I have inter-library loaned. The topic is revising your manuscript.
From the learning rooms... a two-hour delay :-)
I am thankful for... Emily's party going so well and for her party being OVER.
From the kitchen... Coffee. I don't know what I'll make for meals today or any day. lol
I am wearing... Jeans that I've never fit into before! A black v-neck stretchy shirt and a plum-colored velour sweatshirt. White socks, black slippers, wet hair...
I am reading... North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (for book club). Finishing Deadly Reunion by Florence Case. About ready to give up on Miracles by C.S. Lewis - it's too profound for my little brain. Still in Isaiah in The Message, although I didn't read there last week.
I am hoping... that my beta readers will find time to read Forget-Me-Not (my novel) sometime soon. I need to get that polished up. (If you're a beta, consider that a poke! lol)
I am creating... a list of possible book/movie choices for my book club
I am hearing... The furnace, my kids upstairs giggling and avoiding their responsibilities.
Around the house... Happy Birthday balloons left from Em's party, my huge new thesaurus, a new hula hoop that smells like fruit, Horatio Hornblower DVD's, and my teenage son laying on the living room floor wrapped in a red and white comforter.
One of my favorite things... finding just the right word
A few plans for the rest of the week... Lessons Mon-Friday, querying and editing every afternoon if possible. James has soccer clinic on Tuesday night, Wednesday is Pioneer Club. A calmer week!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
These are the "square root" vegetables David cut in honor of Square Root Day 3/3/09. Get it?
