I saw this fun format for musings on Deanna's Polishing Mudballs site last week and thought I'd
steal it give it a try now and then for a Sunday post. These thoughts are Saturday night real time, but you won't see them until Sunday. Let me know if you think it's worth doing again for future posts.
Outside my window: It is gray and dreary, and oh so very cold.
I am listening to: The Fugitive, which is on the TV at the moment, even though no one is watching it. One awesome movie though.
I am thinking: that I really should be reading instead of computering. I've got so many piles waiting for me!
I am grateful for: health, even though I have issues with weight, at least I'm healthy!
I am reading: The Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan, the Wheel of Time series, book five! Whew! I am just past page 600 of 960 pages. It takes time, but is also flying by. I have many observations and am anxious to post random thoughts in a review hopefully this week.
I am photographing: myself reading for a Weekly Geek self portrait to be posted soon. Come on over and join us, you know you want to! I am also pondering a new, creative bookish profile post. It's time for a change.
I am listing: things I am looking forward to this year!
I am creating: a science fair project with Toto, sixth grade daughter. All week we've been recruiting people willing to do 50 stomach crunches a day for a month, with waist measurements given every week.... to see if crunches really work! We have about 15 people on board and we're off with the experiment! It's going to be interesting.
On my iPod: I just downloaded and added the Tron soundtrack today. Oh my. I love it. I made a YouTube playlist of this stuff so if you want to have a listen, click here.
To live my faith: I plan on going to church as usual!
I am hoping and praying: that my sister-in-law survives her grief and hangs in there until she can breathe again.
Around the house: I have cleaned up Christmas and organized a few little corners, including a laptop space for myself.
From the kitchen: not much is happening. The kids just made Bagel Bites! I'm trying not to think about food at the moment, you know. I would love to make what's happening in the kitchen more enjoyable. If you have suggestions, let me know.
One of my favorite things: is really loud visually cool movies. Yes, we finally saw Tron last night, and it was impressive, special effect-wise. And loud. And I loved it.
The children this week: will be busy as usual. Next Saturday could be interesting since one kid has conflicting band gigs. I hope we get through it without too many issues.
Plans for the week: to go to work, to finish Fires then start some new books, to go to a birthday party on Friday and band gigs on Saturday, to shuttle kids here and there, do stomach crunches every day (along with regular exercising,) and to have a good attitude through it all!
On this date: in 2008 I posted my TBR shelf, which looks the same today, just different books. In 2009 I posted a rambling post, which it was fun to see what I was rambling about two years ago, and in 2010 I posted about all the fun I was having with Bloggiesta AND other things that day, including seeing Shannon Hale! Ah, that was a fun day. I can't believe it's been a year already.
