This post should more correctly be titled ::today::. At no one point today will I be doing all of these things, but rather it's a collection of things from my day...moments. Today is one of those days where it will take me all day to write this post. I know I'll work on it in little bits and pieces here and there throughout my day. It's a busy one, this day...several meetings, some commitments to help here and there, some neighbors to look in on. Life. This day is full of life.
:: listening to Matthew West's song Do Something--it speaks to me!
:: grateful for the way people in the community always surprise me...just when I think I know
:: planning my packing list for meetings in town next week and a trip to Juneau next month. I should be getting better at this sort of wardrobe stuff, but I don't feel like I am!
:: eating gingersnaps from my grandma's recipe with my afternoon cup of coffee
:: reading The River Why (for book club), The Kindness Diaries (from the library), and Robyn Carr's Thunder Point series (trashy romance)
:: learning to do math all over again as I prep myself to finally take the Praxis and finally get my AK teaching credentials. Ugh.
:: trying to look past the piles that seem to be cropping up all over this little home of ours. Stuff threatens to overwhelm me daily.
:: cooking nothing! Which hardly ever happens, but the school is doing a fundraising dinner tonight so I get the night off, lucky me! Oh wait...I lied. I totally caved and made Chex mix today. That stuff is so addicting for me. I honestly cannot stop eating it which is precisely why I try never to make it.
:: wondering what makes people tick...this town has so many personalities in such a small space. They're bound to smash into each other from time to time. This feels like one of those times to me.
:: watching nothing. I almost never watch TV during the day. I can't even remember the last time I turned in on...
:: hoping for a bit of snow...I'd really like to sled, ski, snowshoe, skate...anything!
:: remembering this moment while it pours buckets outside...
:: creating a quilt top based on this 'stack and whack' technique. They call theirs 'Random Acts of Happy'...right up my alley!
:: celebrating friendship...what a gift!!
:: considering when to go test drive cars. My beloved little Hyundai has shown that she needs to be replaced. I'm still in mourning. Scott and I narrowed the list down last weekend and now I need to drive them.
:: finishing ummm...I feel like I never finish anything! Except cups of coffee, that is!
