Outside my window...a sunny but cool day.
I am thinking...I like having my whole family at home. I enjoy hearing my daughters laugh together. I am very content, and thankful.
I am thankful for...the opening of a new Christian bookstore in Scarborough. all the shelves aren't filled yet, but I bought three books, my oldest daughter bought a new Bible, and my youngest daughter bought two cd's. Everybody's happy.
From the kitchen...turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, ham on the bone, cauliflower and carrots, and rice krispie nests with jelly bean eggs.
I am wearing...jeans and a purple sweater.
I am reading...The Tapestry by Gilbert and Lynn Morris.
I am hoping...to have a few productive days. Work was quiet. We were embarrassingly overstaffed for our 'emergency' weekend with three nurses for six patients. On Tuesday, I had seven patients, was in charge, and orientating new staff. Feast or famine, I guess.
I am hearing...an audio book called Austenland, by Shannon Hale. It's a book about a woman who is obsessed with Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and particularly Colin Firth from the BBC series. She is given a three week fantasy vacation on an English estate where she can live in the Regency time period. It's funny chick-lit.
Around the house...we have some admin. to take care of for the Carey conference this year. This year we're attempting on-line registrations, which will be a big deal for me since I don't like technology or change.
One of my favourite things...new bookstores. I think new bookstores have a smell, like new cars, only better. Maybe I should bottle it and make a fortune selling it to bookaholics.
A few plans for the week...shop with my daughters on Monday. Drive my daughter back to Hamilton on Tuesday, see the place where she'll be living next year, and take some measurements for curtains and furniture. Then I'm meeting with a friend who has offered to type my stories up for me.
