in the kitchen . . . a new dishwasher is sloshing away. I think a batch of 5-minute artisan bread dough is in order this week. Haven't made it in a very long time!
around the house . . . packing, packing, packing. I started on my china cabinet, but it is not nearly as rewarding as one would hope. Four boxes later and I've barely made a dent. I think I'll have to work in some other areas to get the feeling of accomplishment that will spur me on to keep at it.
thinking about . . . our new home and how we'll "live" in it differently.
listening to. . . "Charlotte Talks" on NPR. Something about war prisoners.
thankful for. . . kind words from a few of you - you've encouraged me to at least keep at the blogging a bit longer - if only modestly, and a chance to finally be in bible study!
one of my favorite things . . . my son's new MacBook. He doesn't like me liking it, but I do!
milestones in the past week . . .
:-: Baby L has officially left "babyhood" - she is now 2 and a TODDLER.
