It's a Busy, busy Thursday
Going on right now...
~ Watched a dress rehearsal yesterday for Delaney's middle school play (which will be tonight). It's called "Big Bad" and tells the story of the Big Bad Wolf on trial (with characters like Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs making appearances.) Delaney plays the Defense Attorney. It's too cute.
~ "Lost" was All Sorts of Awesome Awesomeness last night! The Widmore reveal was great, but the best moment of the night was learning Des and Penny's son was named Charlie. I teared up on that one.
~ Sad abut the news that one of my favorite older members of our church passed away yesterday. He was the one who always greeted you with a kiss on the cheek and a sincere, "It's so good to see you." We need more of those folks in the world.
~ Finished reading Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris last night. I just discovered Sedaris, even though I'd heard people rave about him in the past. His are books of essays that are funny and sardonic at the same time. And his writing is top-notch.
~ As it's almost the beginning of the month (and payday!), I've been thinking of my upcoming grocery shopping trip. I'm wanting to try some new meals, and these have caught my eye: this Ranch Style Chicken, and this Slow Cooker Taco Soup, and these Ham & Cheese Rolls (I think those will be my Super Bowl-day goodies). (I'm also tackling a cake tomorrow for Gary's grandmother's birthday; the plan is for it to be in the shape of an "8" and a "0." We'll see how that goes!)
~ Really loving Facebook. I've connected with some people I haven't seen in ages (a former college minister! a friend from junior high!), and it's a great way to stay in touch with friends today. (And my friend Ingrid's post yesterday of "25 Random Facts" about herself, made me think of Tiramisu. I think I'm gonna try this recipe for it soon. Yep, it always all comes back to food. I won't deny it.)
~ Really wanting to get some scrapbooking done. I have the makings of four or five layouts sitting on my dining room table right now, but that's really all they're doing. Sitting there. I also want to make a little mini book with all my Christmas pictures from this year in it.
~ Trying to nip Procrastination in the bud. I've got a book manuscript due very soon, and I've still got a ways to go on it. I may have to hole myself away in the next two weeks, giving up blogs and Facebook and "Lost" and scrapbooking and cakes and all manners of sports while I finish it... but, gosh, I hope not!
~ I want a Starbucks mocha frappacino right now. (And a flat screen tv.) Just saying.
