Outside my window... mostly sunny, high of 79. I kept praying that this was simply a fluke and that we'd have winter again, but I don't think it's going to happen. I caught a glimpse of our Phoebes this morning and they're arrival means, 'spring' is official.
I am thankful... for a family who delights in routine but can still be very flexible, circle the wagons, and crank when life throws us a curve ball. We've learned that getting a mortgage in TN is far different than getting a mortgage here. Our particular snaffu means the Anthem house is going on the market in 10 days, so we're in deep-cleaning overdrive at the moment.
In the kitchen... Lauren loading the crockpot with Chicken Parmesean.
I am creating... two new planner page spreads. I don't like my 'flaps', and this week's theme is 'recycled'.
I am going... to take the girls to a gig tomorrow.
I am reading... I just finished the pile of 1/2 finished books on my night stand. Time to start something new.
I am hoping... that we can all make it through this 5th-gear stage of life. Selling homes, buying homes, two trucks/move dates, and Piotr newly assigned to a high-profile project while covering two regions of the country, all on top of concert season. It's a lot.
I am looking forward to... all the housing situations being settled. The sale of Anthem, the purchase of TN, great housing for the family currently renting our TN place, etc.
I am learning... about watercolors. I'm not at all good at it, but one has to start somewhere.
A favorite quote for today... in this day and age where everyone must say something about everything . . .
"It is not necessary to react to everything you notice."
One of my favorite things... going back to bed with a barometric migraine, just to snooze for a few minutes in hopes that drugs will kick in, and waking up 2 hours later feeling so much better. :)
A few plans for the rest of the week... gig for the girls, World Tour Wednesday, church Sunday. The rest of the time will be deep cleaning here at home.
