Reading ... in my Bible, this morning, I Peter. In other reading, I just finished up a book on old fashioned home remedies. It was both horrifying and hilarious. And it made me wonder, in several hundred years, what will people be looking back at and shaking their heads that we ever thought such and such was a good idea?
I have a stack of recommended books sitting here waiting on me. I had requested them from the library over a period of more than a month, but somehow a whole batch of them arrived at the same time. It should keep my evenings full for a little while. I may share the ones I find I really liked, and maybe give mention to any that were a definite no.
Watching ... Worst Cooks in America. It motivates me to make sure all our children know how to cook. They all do, but practicing and adding to our skills doesn't hurt.
Listening ... to Sharon practice her latest assignment from her piano teacher, Steven talking to himself as he's trying to decide which book he wants to read next, the hum of the furnace blower running, and the clicky noise the keyboard makes as I type.
Wearing ... a gray patterned skirt and a pink-ish shirt. And my coat. I get cold after eating and my coat was closer than my robe, so coat it is.
Eating ... for breakfast I had avocado toast, and for lunch we'll be having leftover chili from last night.
Cooking ... I haven't decided what I'll make for supper tonight, which is different since I usually plan a week's worth of menus at a time. For some reason the thought of cooking tonight makes me feel like saying, "but ... but ... but, I just cooked last night! And thousands of meals before that."
I'm sure inspiration will come to me before long, but right now the desire to cook has left me. I don't care for that feeling.
Cleaning ... I like adding something along the lines of deep cleaning in addition to our regular housekeeping every week. This week it's taking apart the faucets to do a deep clean on them and make them sparkle from the inside out.
Playing ... we've been playing a lot of 'Sleeping Queens' lately. It's fun and fast. Two of my favorite things in games.
Loving ... the waterfall. I'm not even going to complain about the lack of snow, even though January is not the ideal month for things to begin looking a little green. Even the daffodils have started to grow.
