Table set on Friday night
Reading The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. It's a Victorian mystery and I'm completely hooked on it.
Writing a birthday card to a very special sister-in-law (well, I plan to later today) and thinking of using this very cute DIY as a model.
Listening to the water in the kettle beginning to boil for tea.
Thinking about who the woman in white could be (I told you I was hooked!).
Smelling nothing at the moment. Soon I'll be smelling oats and brown sugar!
Wishing we weren't 10 minutes late to the beginning of Les Mis yesterday. We made a last-minute decision to catch the matinee and considering how long previews typically last, we thought were going to make it. But on the way out the door my husband couldn't find his wallet, so we spent 10 precious minutes looking for it!
Hoping for happy changes to come soon, and peace in the meantime.
Wearing my Ikea black-and-white-striped blanket wrapped around me. It's finally chilly here!
Drinking a cup of hot tea with cream. I really love morning coffee but I'm trying to drink less caffeine (even one cup has a lot) so I've been having more tea in the mornings, and also lattes, which require only half a cup of coffee.
Loving my husband! (Told you this might be a consistent answer.) He's just fun to be around. Yesterday we were both cuddled on the couch sharing a blanket and reading our books. It was heaven.
Wanting to have a really relaxing day. Lots of reading and yummy meals and quiet talks with my husband. Yesterday, for no reason at all, I felt a little bit tense (does that ever happen to you?) and I'd like today to be more calm.
Needing the holiday tomorrow. One extra day of "weekend" with my husband will be so nice.
Feeling happy that my husband enjoyed the French-inspired meal I made him on Friday night (more about this tomorrow!).
Clicking on this really weird story. Apparently, the girlfriend of ND's Manti Te'o, who supposedly died of leukemia last year, never existed. Someone created an online personality and duped Te'o into believing it was a real woman. It sounds like Te'o was not at fault and I feel terrible for him--how embarrassing and cruel! Although, he probably shouldn't have given his heart away to a woman he never met in person. The internet is a scary place!
