Instead, I'll spend today finishing up making the house over for fall. The seashells are boxed up, the candles are switched over to fall colors, and I've gathered up all of the pine cones that have fallen.
Here's What I'm:
Listening To: I started Steven Galloway's The Cellist of Sarajevo this week. Remember a couple of weeks ago when I talked about Albinoni's Adagio? It's featured in the book so I'm very excited to be listening to this one and getting to hear snippets of the music.
Watching: Why yes I did stay up way past my bedtime the other night so Miss H and I could watch "10 Things I Hate About You." Which we own and could watch any time. But how could we possibly shut off beautiful Heath Ledger and an incredibly young Joseph Gordon-Levitt?
Reading: I'm racing through Songs of Willow Frost this weekend for a review this week and then I'll have to race through Round House. I don't know why I do this to myself; I would much prefer to be able to take more time with these books.
Making: Several casseroles (I made a crockpot of chicken early in the week) including bean, cheese and rice enchiladas.This morning we enjoyed steel cut oats for the first time in months.
Planning: On taking Christmas card pictures this week. Maybe if I get started earlier this year I'll actually get the cards sent!
Grateful for: My new walking shoes. It's a silly thing, but they really are inspiring me to get out and move.
Loving: Adding the fall colors to my house. Isn't it funny how we're so ready to embrace them this time of year and so over them before long?
Thinking: Of staining the vanity in the kids' bathroom. A friend is using gel stain to do all of the cupboards in her kitchen and they look great. I'm so ready for a change!
Looking forward to: Heading south again this weekend. Hoping the kids remember to lock up at night while we're gone and that their aunt lives close enough now to check up on them while we're gone!
What are you watching lately? Are any of the new shows catching your attention?
