Blue in the Sky

A lesbian wife and mother tries her hand at something new. Surely there is a hat that fits out there somewhere!

Outside my window….the sun is trying its best to shine.  It’s been a cloudy, cloudy morning, but no rain.  Now it seems to be brightening up outside.

I am thinking… about math.  This is actually true.  I have a month to reaquaint myself with math.  It’s been awhile.  Hopefully, a month will be enough.

I am thankful for… my family.  I just shared a weekend with my wife and both sets of our parents.  The six of us spent three days together in the same house.  I have ALOT to be thankful for.

I am wearing… a long-sleeved grey t-shirt, a fuzzy maroon vest, jeans, and purple wool socks.  No class today!  Three cheers for a weekday in jeans.

I am reading… Strange Piece of Paradise by Terri Jentz.  My book club picked this, so I had to set American Wife aside for awhile.  I am so glad to have run across this.  It’s a non-fiction/true crime/introspectively interesting book.  On a cross-country bike trip with a friend, this woman survived an axe attack.  Doesn’t that sound like a great read? 😉  It actually is.  I am fascinated by the whole thing.  I would definitely recommend this.

I am hoping…for good news on Thursday.

Around the house… we are a man down.  Baker is staying with his grandparents for the week, so things are quiet around here.  Not a “woo woo”  to be heard.  A little good, a little not so good.

One of my favorite things… is how easy it is to get things done in this town.  There are things I miss about life in a big city, but mostly I LOVE life in a smaller town.  This AM I got my new social security card (the name change is official!!!) and I waited for LESS than 10 minutes.  That is unreal.  Little things like this make life so much more pleasant.

A few plans for the rest of the week…. We’ve got a date with Neko Case on Wednesday night.  A few years back we saw the New Pornographers (and they were great!!!), but we’ve never seen just Neko.  What a great mid-week trip! We’ll be back with Toad’s parents at some point this weekend so that we can pick up the boy.  We may make it a whole weekend or we may just grab and go.  We’ll see.

A “picture thought I’m sharing… A little family togetherness from the weekend.  Unfortunately Dad was taking the picture, so he’s missing.  From left to right, there is Professor Mom, Professor, Toad, Toad Mom and Toad Dad.
