Outside my window: It's been raining off and all week and I absolutely adore summer thunder storms. One night I just turned off all the lights and sat with my cat by the open window and enjoyed the storm.
I am listening to: I downloaded a new song!!! OK, I'm a bit obsessive about having something new to listen to.
I am watching: I went and saw Super 8 on the 4th and it was awesome! I love movies that have you at the edge of your seat in suspense and then make you laugh right in the middle of it!
I am thinking: My families reunion is this weekend and I'm in charge (eeek!) I just hope the whole thing goes OK.
I am grateful for: AC, I truly am!
I am reading: Divergent and am still working on Middlemarch. I finally put my foot down and am working on reading 50 pages a day of Middlemarch.
I am photographing: I went to the gardens at Thanksgiving Point this week with my sister and her two boys and took some ridiculous picture. I'll share a few. If you live in Utah and have never been to this garden you should go. And if you're ever in Utah, you should go. It's so pretty!
|My nephew William
|My nephew James
|Lilly pads in the koi pond. My favorite!
|My sister being tragic
|Me being tragic
|William and me. And isn't it pretty?!
|William and me grinning cheesy grins inside a caterpillar.
I am creating: Hmmm, nothing much.
Around the house: I had to take drastic measures but I've got the ants sort of under control and I've only seen one earwig in the house this week, so, that's something.
From the kitchen: I have a new recipe I want to try out but it's probably not going to happen until next week.
One of my favorite things: The above mentioned summer thunder storms. LOVE em!
The children this week: No kids, just my cat Buns and I'm praying she does OK while I'm gone this next weekend. Sigh! She tends to get very lonely and then mad and do naughty things when I leave her for too long.
Plans for the week: Get ready for, and go to the reunion. Wish me luck!
