for today: october 28, 2010.
outside my window: it is starting to get dark. i'm not sure that i love that it's getting dark so early. having the sun up until well after 9:00 pm is one of my most favorite things about summer...the sun going down at 5:00 pm in the winter is one of my least favorite things about winter.
i am thinking: that this cold is moving down into my chest and i'm not okay with it. not at all okay with it. because i only have head cold medicine...not chest cold medicine. i guess i will have to go to the dumb store after work today. yay.
i am thankful for: my mommy. i decided that i was going to be crafty and make a fall wreath...and because my mom is so amazingly talented and crafty, i was able to call her and tell her what i wanted/needed and she is completely willing to help me out. i will definitely write about my fall wreath when i get started on it and when i finish it.
from the kitchen: there is no news. i have a list of things i want to make, but i just haven't gotten around to it. stupid cold. but, luckily i inherited some fresh fruit including a pineapple and two pomegranates and fresh veggies.
i am wearing: a smile. why wouldn't i be smiling? it is my monday back at work and i have a stick-around-cold and i am exhausted. smiling comes natural, right? well, at least i try.
i am creating: a fall wreath. i'm pretty excited about it.
i am going: to see tyrone wells and andrew belle on monday. i'm pretty stoked about it. the last time i saw tyrone wells, i wasn't quite prepared for the goodness and greatness that is his music. i am definitely much more prepared this time. i haven't seen andrew belle on his own before...just with ten out of tenn. he was in logan this summer, but i missed the show cause i had to work. dumb work...but this time i planned better and won't be missing him this time. i'm super excited.
i am reading: the jane austen book club and the tale of despereaux. i really need to get started on mockingjay, but i'm scared that i won't like it. and i don't want the series to be over. plus, i have a plethora of borrowed books that i need to dive into. here's to reading.
i am hoping: that the pounding and loud noises from upstairs stop soon. it's really annoying and i kinda want to go have a word with them, but i will refrain...and just hope for them to figure out it's way too late to be rearranging furniture.
i am hearing: sara bareilles' new album, kaleidoscope heart. oh, and the noise from upstairs. but sara is doing a very good job of distracting me. btw...i am going to see her on november 17th. i'm pretty super excited for that show, too. cary brothers will be with her. love him. and her.
around the house: there is clutter. i need to organize more and maybe even better. it is a skill i kind of lack. i mean, not really, cause most of my stuff is organized. but i have a habit of creating piles of stuff to deal with/look at later. i need to be better about those.
one of my favorite things: about today was learning that you definitely, for sure, can not in anyway shape or form judge a book by its cover. especially the kids i work with. man oh man.
a few plans for the rest of the week: include work and work. maybe some baking of halloween treats...at least i'm thinking about it. probably some organizing and cleaning. and then the concert. i guess, just some stuff.
here is a picture thought i am sharing:
