Daybook 19



For Today...


Outside my Window...night skies
I am thinking...about how I'll schedule writing this week (this should be fixed, but I have some other non-regular gig things going on and I need to find time for them), how to effectively lose weight, how to schedule blog posts (yes, I confess, I do scheduled posting when I know I have a busy week ahead), how to make Marguerite's birthday celebration as eco-friendly as possible, possible parenting article topics... and, okay, maybe I'm still thinking a little bit about Aaron Peirsol. Okay, scratch that, maybe I'm still gushing like a busted water pipe about Aaron Peirsol ;-p
I am thankful for
...the energy to keep up with Marguerite

From the kitchen
...nothing I can get credit for although we do have chocolate mousse and little cheesecake sqaures. I haven't been spending time in the kitchen lately so all the baked goodies are store-bought. I'll definitely make up for this.

I am creating
...an organizer for Marguerite's birthday; stories, articles, and essays; various pending craft projects

I am wearing
... shorts and a holey shirt (Grunge lives on! LOL)

I am reading
...Entrepreneur magazine

I am hoping
...to lose pounds and make something happen to that weight ticker in the right margin :)

I am hearing
...whirring fan, humming computer, children playing, the TV from the other room

Around the house
...a miracle - every one of Marguerite's toys is put away; It's 8pm and the place does not look ravaged!

One of my favorite things
...high tea ("She thought that maybe - just maybe - Western Civilization was in a decline because people did not take time to take tea at four o'clock," from EL Konigsburg's The View from Saturday)

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week
... accomplish as many writing assignments as I can, finish one of my fiber projects, pin Husband down and ply him with caffeine for a business meeting, get in touch with Subic friends...

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




This was taken by Husband when we were up in Binangonan checking out the petroglyphs. We had to walk through a tunnel and our friend Dorothy wanted a picture of us walking towards the light.:)

I enjoyed reading your blog and imo Gerry Butler is worthy of becoming a fangirl. I'm not sure about Piersol. Have a great day.
