St. Basil the Great
outside my window . . . the sun is just past its zenith, I believe, and hot and white.
in the kitchen . . . zucchini bread is in the oven, bread dough is rising on the stove, veggies are washed and waiting to be transformed into ratatouille.
around the house . . . still slowly working on painting rooms here and there. We stalled on little E's room before our vacation and haven't quite gotten back there. Hubby says today is the day.
thinking about . . . a new camera, maybe
listening to. . . the clatter of dishes being put away
thankful for. . . a hubby happy to be the dish-putter-awayer
pondering the words . . . "war-torn Afghanistan could become the 'Saudi Arabia' of lithium"
creating . . . temporarily lost my crochet mojo and had to restart Baby L's summer blanket 3 or 4 times. I might have it finished before the leaves start turning colors.
one of my favorite things . . . new purple bath mats (all cotton - no rubber backing) I picked up for $5 at Marshalls
milestones in the past week . . . we are finally moving on the property! After a ridiculous of red-tape from one lender (one my hubby works for - not mentioning any names), we've switched to another lender and everything is going much more smoothly. We went by the property (to see what other lots had been sold) and saw that we have a drive way and home site cleared!
a few plans for the upcoming week . . . quick meeting with our new lender to sign some papers tomorrow, taking Little E to one of the free summer movies Wednesday, working Friday, and H comes home Saturday (from nearly 3 weeks in Sweden with his grandmother).
