Reading Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner, which I hope to finish today. It's very beautiful and poignant, and I'm really loving it.
Writing some emails.
Listening to the morning quiet. I went to bed with a bit of a headache and woke up feeling better, but the silence still feels soothing and just right. For someone who loves music, it's funny how much I also enjoy silence.
Thinking about Daylight Savings (which I just realized happened today). It always seems to catch me by surprise!
Smelling nothing, actually!
Wishing our taxes could magically be done for us. I feel really grateful for the income I've made on a freelance basis, but it makes doing taxes so difficult!
Hoping...more like praying...for the strength to trust in God's plan and God's timing.
Wearing nothing cute, not right now anyway!
Drinking hot tea with cream.
Loving that I married a guy who makes his wife a delicious to-go lunch first thing in the morning to take with her to an all-day Saturday workshop. And also loving that when she comes home exhausted, 10 hours later, she finds him in the kitchen starting dinner. Feeding each other is such a sign of love and these things mean so much to me.
Wanting to do lots of slicing and chopping in the kitchen. I know that sounds odd, but you would too if you had a brand new set of Wusthof knives! We found a nice little set for a fantastic price (thanks to a suggestion by my mother-in-law to look at the PX, which is basically a military-only department store). They are fabulous.
Needing to get some exercise today. Growing up, we often went on bike rides or hikes on Sundays after church. I'm ashamed to admit that I probably complained about these events more often than not, but thankfully I've grown up a bit since then--why I was ever unhappy about a bike ride is now beyond me! Anyway, it looks like the tradition was instilled in me and now I really love getting fresh air and exercise on Sunday afternoons--thanks, Dad, for always putting up with me!
Feeling proud of my brothers. My older brother works for Uber in Dallas and he had a really great, exciting few days (which included driving a Rolls Royce and a Maserati!). My little brother just landed an internship in Atlanta, so he will be nearby this summer! We are about 4 hours from Atlanta, but that's a whole lot closer than NYC. We're really excited about it.
Clicking on Columbia's homepage. If you scroll over that first photo that appears, you'll recognize a name I type often on this blog. There's just so much to brag about when it comes to that little brother of mine.
Have a lovely Sunday!
