Simple Woman #4


For Today…

~Outside My Window~

A street cleaner is whooshing, and rumbling by in the cul-de-sac. The dogs are totally enraptured. I am totally annoyed. The cats are totally sleeping. (What do you expect?)

~I am thinking~

What a treat that Terry is home this week. His college is on Spring Break, and I get him underfoot, I mean… at home all week. I don’t have any school work today so he’s taking me to Gettysburg to shop. wOOt!

~From the learning rooms~

Both kiddos work today. I suppose that is why I don’t feel guilty about going to Gettysburg to shop.

~I am thankful for~

I am thankful for my husband’s steady job and the fact we are paying our bills. Things are never “easy”, but we do at least pay the bills. Can’t complain about that in this economy.

~From the kitchen~

I need to make sure I have everything I need to fix supper tonight. Kyersten gets off at 5 PM and will likely be hungry. She has a lot of little extra things to do tonight before leaving for Florida tomorrow. Maybe I’ll fix brownies too, although we do have some other sweets that need eaten. Hmm. Decisions, decisions.

~I am wearing~

I am wearing a brown warm-up suit, and tennis shoes. It is suppose to be in the mid 50’s today. I’ll probably need a jacket, but then I’m always cold.

~I am reading~

I finally finished “The Mysterious Island” by Verne. Now I am reading Jane Eyre by Bronte. Guess I’m into the classics right now.

~I am hoping~

I am hoping, really I am PRAYING, that my daughter’s flight goes well tomorrow. Only one thing I hate worse than flying alone and that is one of my kids flying alone. Nevermind, the squirt is 19-years-old and independent.

~I am creating~

I am creating another blog post for Hearing Elmo. This one is taking longer for some reason. I had a lot of school work last week, and I think my brain is fried.

~I am hearing~

I am hearing the street cleaner truck over on the NEXT cul-de-sac! How is THAT for hearing with bionics? Thing is… hubby said my daughter’s Chinese Crested is screeching like a banshee downstairs and I CAN’T hear THAT! (It’s all about tone and pitch folks!) What is a banshee anyway? (runs to look) Oh my! It’s the spirit of a wailing woman! No wonder hubby grimaces and flinches when Pegasus is in “full throttle”.

~Around the house~

I need to dust. Both of my kids have written their names on the piano bench. (grrrrr…)

~One of my favorite things~

I love to cross-stitch. I need to find a new project to do. I have a beautiful country house that I need to get framed. The craft is relatively cheap to do, the framing is NOT. Perhaps I should take a framing class and learn to build my own. I’m told one can do that! Wonder where I’d go to look for classes? Home Depot? Or a craft store?

~A few plans for the rest of the week~

I need to grade my son’s British Literature test and then finish his lesson plans for the week. He still has a lot of catch up to do.

~Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you~

Here is Gingery’s Baby Pegasus when he’s NOT acting like a banshee…

  1. Somehow when you said that a Chinese crested was screeching like a banshee I imagined a BIRD!

    Well, I was surprised by the unusual looking dog!

    Oh my goodness, I can’t look far enough ahead to imagine my kids flying off somewhere without me.

    Hugs to you!

    And, I agree, make the brownies :0)
