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.
