Outside my window: Just now dark on a Saturday night. The lawn is freshly mowed (yep, by me!) and the air is filled with the smell of rain (just a pattering.)
I am listening to: nothing at the moment except the sound of crickets out the window.... and sprinklers in the distance. BUT, I have plans to get out my Halloween music this week. Yay!
I am watching: It's about time for another Dr. Who episode. I'm feeling the mood. This week I watched Terra Nova, and thought it was pretty fun. Reminded me of the old Land of the Lost show that I loved to watch in Saturday mornings. Anyone remember that? (Wow, how fake does that look now? Sheesh.)
I am thinking: of shaking up the prompts for this random musings layout. Any suggestions?
I am grateful for: the end of yet another book fair.
I am reading: I devoured Miles from Ordinary by Carol Lynch Williams this morning. Wow, that was intense. And last night I started Under the Dome and got a big chunk (nearly 100 pages) already done!
I am listing: Reviews I need to write to get caught up! And I think I'll start listing this prompt ideas!
I am creating: I supervised the pamphlet making for a school project, and there is still a pottery thing that needs making, and if that doesn't work, we need to figure out how to make a dream catcher.
Around the house: Oh today I put up the Halloween/Fall decorations! I don't have a bunch, but enough to give the place a little festive feel. It was fun anyway.
From the kitchen: Spaghetti tonight using three different things from the garden. And now I think I need to make cookies. (Update... cookies done! Pumpkins ones!)
Some of my favorite things: Uh, pumpkin cookies! Oh, and fall. There there's Freshly mown grass and cool breezes. Right, and visiting college kids.
The children this week: passed their parent teacher conferences. One teacher said about Toto: "She is quiet and brilliant." I really liked that comment.
Plans for the week: You know, I have no idea. I think perhaps it's going to be a fairly quiet normal one. Wow. I plan to enjoy it because the next couple of weeks after that are a bit crazy again.
On this date: Last year our city manager died (he worked closely with the library where I work.) This year, just last week, almost a year to the day, our mayor died. That's just about too twilight zone-ish for me! But wow, sad stuff.
Thanks to Ibeeeg of Polishing Mud Balls for the inspiration for this post's layout.
