Everyday Tidbits...

Be Kind. Do Good. Love is a Verb.

Weekend Reflections 4/8

Looking outside...it's gray and overcast and spitting rain. Quite dreary to look at actually. Temp is 48. We've had a variety of temps and weather this week: near freezing nights and nearly 70 during the day. A typical Idaho spring. The Boise River is high and there are flood warnings, which isn't good.

Listening...to relative silence. A clock ticking and a fish tank filter running. The Boy is at work. The Doctor is at a seminar and The Artist is asleep.

Loving...that there are a few lilac blooms on my lilac tree. We cut it back hard last year and while it's mostly just leaves this year, there are some off shoots that are blooming. I love violets.

Thinking...that I can't believe The Artist is old enough to drive. We signed him up for Driver's Education/Training this summer and spent time at the DMV trying to get his permit. There's an issue with his social security number though, so I have to make calls about that on Monday.

In my kitchen...Our ward is doing their annual scout fundraiser. Dutch Oven Dinner and auction. I was asked to make French Silk Pie for the auction. Those are in the fridge, waiting for their whipped cream crown this evening. I'm drinking my Crio Bru at the moment. 

Wearing...purple pajamas, gray sweater and black slippers. It's not quite cold enough to turn on the heater again, but there is a definite spring chill in the air.

Hoping...that the sun decides to peek out at some point today.

Reading...Still working on that. It's not going too well.

Today...I have to pay bills and do the finances. Not my most favorite thing to do.

Quoting... “I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” ― Marilyn Monroe

Feeling...tired and a bit under the weather.

Planning...we take The Boy back to school next weekend. I'm not looking forward to having him gone again. We've enjoyed having him home for the last 3 months. His brother especially. But I love that he has these opportunities for learning and growth.


Gratitude...for my home and a comfortable recliner and blanket. 

From my world... 



Kev gets it. Best thing on the Internet this week. And dead-on accurate.

What about you? What are you reflecting on this week? How has your week gone?
