FOR TODAY Monday, March 30, 2009...
Outside my window...I am at work and it is the week after spring break. It's good to see the students walking around campus again.
I am thinking... that life can be so hard sometimes. I have a friend who is really hurting right now - and I don't know how to help her.
I am thankful for... the fact that the wind has calmed down to a breezy 10mph instead of the 55mph winds we had yesterday.
From the learning rooms... I am learning some advanced knitting techniques working on Mr. Foster - the knitted sock monkey! Every row has been a challenge - but it is fun.
From the kitchen... I discovered there is a mouse in my kitchen. Therefore, I am not.
I am wearing... a sweater that is beginning to feel a bit too warm.
I am creating... my knitted sock monkey. Here he is right now:
I am going... to get some film developed that has been sitting around the house for many years. It should be interesting since I have absolutely no idea what is on them!
I am reading... A Debbie Bliss knitting magazine.
I am hoping... for spring to finally arrive.
I am hearing... the quiet.
Around the house... I have started a de-cluttering project. After working in my bathroom and closet I have thrown away two bags of trash, taken one large bag to
Goodwill, and have three large bags of yard sale stuff. I am amazed.
One of my favorite things... is Diet Dr. Pepper.
A few plans for the rest of the week: To continue with my de-cluttering project in the hopes that I will get inspired to paint.
Here is picture thought I am sharing
I put this is the mail today and I am praying it arrives safely. I have heard many horror stories about sending mail to Peru. This box has my sweet grandboy's birthday present in it and it would break my heart if he doesn't get it. When the postmaster asked me how much I wanted to insure it for I was thinking "Oh I don't know, how about $5000? It's got lots of handmade love in there - stuff that can't be replaced." Before I could say anything though, he said, "Oh never mind. The most you can insure it for is $125."
Alrighty then. You better make sure it gets there mister.
Sigh. Have I mentioned how much I hate that Peru is so far away? 1053 days to go.
