Sitting…at my dining room table. I was on the porch but it’s like 200% humidity out there. Ugh.
Drinking…coffee, black, from my husband’s LiveStrong mug in honor of The Tour.
Watching…The Tour. The Tour de France, that is, though I’m not watching right now exactly. We are a household of cyclists, my husband and two of my boys (maybe more to come), so The Tour is a greatly anticipated event each year. And with Lance’s comeback? All the more exciting. And yes, I do watch with them and actually find it all pretty interesting–but that’s fodder for another post.
Resuming…my hurried pace of driving kids all over town all day long. I enjoyed a brief respite last week while my oldest two were away at a youth conference but this week, it’s back to the races. Literally.
Anticipating…vacation in a couple of weeks. We need it. All of us.
Hoping…to be able to meet up with Melissa of Breath of Life while we’re on vacation in her neck of the woods. Won’t that be fun?
Still looking…for some comfortable shoes to wear while on vacation. We will be walking. A lot. It seems that as the comfort level rises as does the shoe price so I want to be sure to make a wise investment. Any recommendations?
Planning…to attend the True Woman Conference in Chattanooga in the spring. Anyone else? I am so excited! Registration opens August 1.
Completed…Writing Places by William Zinsser and really enjoyed it. I’ve decided I love memoir. Reading memoir makes me want to grab a spiral notebook and a pen and sit under a tree somewhere and attempt to create something beautiful out of the dull, ordinary moments of my dull, ordinary life. As if. I don’t, but I always want to, at least for a day or two. Anyway, speaking of Writing Places, we’ll be giving a copy away next month at 5 Minutes for Books; watch for it!
Wanting…something really, really good to read. I have a stack of books waiting to be read (and, no, Jennifer, I’m not complaining) but I’m looking for something that is pure fun, a delight to read. What are some of your favorite pleasure reads? If you share your list with me, maybe I will post a list of my all time favorites.
Deciding…what to do when I get up from the computer. I need to (choose one or more of the following): Walk. Laundry. Chore lists for the boys. Clean house. Call the dentist. Go to the cleaners. Run kids all over town all day long. Yep, it’s the glamorous life of a stay at home mom. Dull, ordinary, and not exactly the stuff of memoirs. No matter for in the midst of the dull and the ordinary (and the hopeless and the depraved) God has chosen to make known the greatness of the riches of His glory, Christ in me, the hope of glory! Him we proclaim!
