monday musings

...
Today...

Outside my window... the clouds are inching ever closer. Rain and then snow will arrive some time this afternoon.

I am thinking... how could I forget my hair appointment! I know; I usually schedule them for Wednesday. For some reason, I scheduled this one for a Monday. Good thing I can get in later this afternoon. Still.....

I am thankful for... for such a kind and understanding hairdresser. This isn't the first time I've done this.

From the kitchen... nothing. I just loaded the dirty dishes in the dishwasher so it looks cleaner than usual.

I am creating... nothing. Unless you consider decorating and wrapping presents.

I am going... to California next week!

I am wearing... jeans, long sleeve t-shirt, and vest. No shoes or socks yet.

I am reading... Twilight. I enjoyed the movie and wanted to know more about the characters. So, here I am reading a book I never thought I would.

I am hoping... to get a phone call from my son today. (He said he would)

I am hearing... I have the news on but I'm not really listening to it.

Around the house... not enough Christmas decorations. I don't want to put them all out since we will be away for a good portion of the holidays.

One of my favorite things... Christmas

A few plans for the rest of the week... a trip to the mall tonight, work, mailing some gifts, small group meeting, meeting with some friends, and a Christmas party at the end of the week.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you... here's what you get when you try to fit three on a [small] couch....

What a fun post. I love it when my friends do these. You are such a jet-setter. Have a wonderful time in California. It seems like you just came back from there. Time does fly.

I'm gonna decorate tomorrow night. I've been procrastinating...actually I've been waiting on Subvet...who's been procrastinating. I may have to move the freezer myself to have a spot for the tree.

I've forgotten my hair appointment too.

Love that pic of the 3 of you on the couch.
You will have a nice time going to CA for Christmas.

Like the musings - journal...I may have to try this sometime.

I like your new blog look too.

I didn't mean a blue sun...I meant a blue sunshine on my shoulders...I was referring to the background.

I like it....

but you've always been sunshine yellow....

now you're blue. a beautiful blue...

takes some getting used to, does blue.

love the new look of the blog. and can relate so much to the photo of the cramming on a sofa. i remember the good old days when my husband, myself and dog could somehow fit...and enjoy it:0) not so anymore.

I LOVE that picture! That is just how I imagine you all being - fun-loving and close and laughing!

Wrapping presents is definitely creating.

Mam said...

Thanks for your 'mouse' comment, Diana. I put an answer there, just below yours. Figured someone else might want to know.

I love your Christmas design! So pretty. We got about 4 inches of snow up here. Not too bad, but the streets were sure icey.
