I am thankful...for a safe and restful "Hurricane Day" nestled in the Kettle playing, reading, watching a fascinating documentary, cooking and eating with Brian, Levi and Uncle Chris. No damage and no power loss. Yes, thankful.
I am thinking...that Levi and I are going to need to leave the house today. Hmmm..coffee shop? Library? a visit to Grampy's?
In the kitchen...been on a bit of a cooking-kick..if you can believe that. Recent culinary delights; Crock pot Chili, Quinoa Salad, Lattice-Top Chicken.
I am wearing...probably unflattering but totally comfy, hurricane day #2 clothes
I am creating...sketches for album/branding artwork for a new hip-hop recording artist (surprising, I know)
I am going...to play, read and make forts with Levi and catch up on grading art projects during nap time.
I am reading... more poetry by James Weldon Johnson, after reading this.
I am hoping (and praying)... that Dad's recovery continues to go well, that the cancer was completely removed, that he would be completely healed.
I am looking forward to...dressing up with my family and going to a halloween party tonight at the Ranges.
I am hearing...the wind dying down, Levi's quiet hums and darling funny little words.
Around the house... a happy, been-in-the-house-for-48-hours-straight, mess.
I am pondering... the art and ideas of "Gerhart Richter Painting"
A few plans for the rest of the week...
-rake leaves (ok, I might leave this for the man of the kettle)
-some family Halloween visits with the babe
-plan new elementary art lessons
-start some Christmas projects
-Girl's Night Out with the lovely ladies of highrock
-go to a friend's birthday gathering and photograph a 1st birthday party
-start a painting
Hope everyone else is doing ok
and weathered the storm in safety!
