31 Days of My World As It Is Sung: What Sounds Fun to Me Right Now

31 Days of My World As It Is Sung

I’m having concentration issues tonight so I’m borrowing a prompt from this list.

What sounds fun to you right now

My definition of fun is different from a lot of people but…

  • Singing the Messiah with a ton of people
  • Going snorkeling
  • Going boating on the Sound
  • Singing just about anything with my church choir
  • A games night with friends
  • Doing homework with some of my classmates
  • 31 Days of My World As It Is Sung: The Simple Woman’s Daybook for October 29, 2017

    For Today…

    Simple Woman's Daybook

    Looking out my window… dark. It started out quite foggy this morning and it eventually burned off in the afternoon.

    I am thinking… about my coffee date with a classmate to do work tomorrow.

    I am thankful… for typos in the bulletin that lead to mirth during worship.

    One of my favorite things… sleep.

    I am wearing… jammies. Church this morning was my turquoise/black/white bokeh print dress, black cardigan, black camisole, black tights, and black flats. After that, it was a long-sleeved blue-green shirt and jeans.

    I am creating… folders, quick steps, and tasks in Outlook.

    I am reading listening to… various things online.

    I am hoping… I get stuff done in a timely fashion this week.

    I am learning… various things in Outlook.

    In my kitchen… pot roast, carrots, multi-colored potatoes, and salad for dinner.

    In the school room… I had a great time with Daniel on his class field trip to the pumpkin patch last week.

    A moment from my day… Our anthem from this morning.

    Looking out my window… still a little cloudy but more sun than we’ve seen in a week. We had lots of rain and strong winds that knocked over planters in the yard.

    I am thinking… my Electronic Communication assignment that is due tomorrow.

    I am thankful… for fun at my grandma’s birthday party last night.

    One of my favorite things… salami and brie baguettes from Haggen.

    I am wearing… charcoal fitted tee from Old Navy and jeans. Church clothes were the tee paired with black slacks, my black cardigan, and black flats.

    I am creating… reports in Sage. Whee!

    I am reading… Reddit subs.

    I am hoping… the Internet stays functional. It was spazzing last night and this morning.

    I am learning… best practices for Skype.

    In my kitchen… leftover stinky cheeses from my cousin’s wine and cheese 50th birthday party last weekend. Mmmmm… Cambozola!

    In the school room… I get to go to the pumpkin patch with Daniel this week for school.

    Post Script… some commentary on Patheos giving Mark Driscoll some blogging space.

    Shared Quote… For those who saw all the #MeToo statuses on Facebook:

    Looking out my window… dark. It was in the low 60’s F this afternoon when we were sitting out and talking before Sunday dinner. It was really mostly in the 50’s F today with the exception of that time.

    I am thinking… about the assignments I have due this week. It’s not a bad load but I do need to get it done. Mostly, I need to do Skype stuff with one of my Electronic Communications teammates before Saturday.

    I am thankful… for my nap this afternoon. It was heavenly, even if it meant my PE reading didn’t get done before Sunday dinner.

    One of my favorite things… sleep. I’m wishing I was asleep instead of up with the kiddo getting a late night snack.

    I am wearing… jammies. Church clothes were a long-sleeved charcoal heather shirt, black slacks, my black flats, and my grey hoodie because it ended up being cold in the church.

    I am creating… discussion posts for PE, this entry, and reports for my Sage class.

    I am listening to… the sound of the Cheerios scraping against Daniel’s bowl.

    I am hoping… for a productive day tomorrow.

    I am learning… best practices for Skype and video-conferencing.

    In my kitchen… Dad made pasta, sauce, meatballs, and salad tonight. Mom contributed an apple pie with apples from the family orchard in Burlington.

    In the school room… Daniel’s class gets to go to the pumpkin patch next week!

    Looking out my window… dark. It started out chilly today and got up to 63F around noon. It’s now down in the low 40’s.

    I am thinking… about the publicity stunt the Vice-President pulled today. He needs to reimburse taxpayers for the money he wasted. My friends who are vets (Iraq and Afghanistan) think he and 45 are both tools and point out every freaking time they are asked that they served and fought to protect the athletes’ right to protest so THEY DON’T CARE.

    I am thankful… for everything going well with worship today.

    One of my favorite things… being warm. I haven’t been lately. For some odd reason, I can’t deal with the drop in temperatures — I don’t know if the house is just colder or what.

    I am wearing… jammies. Church clothes were a berry-colored long-sleeved shirt from Old Navy, black slacks, and black flats. I switched out the slacks for jeans after church and spent the rest of the day usually barefoot.

    I am creating… reports for Sage.

    I am watching… the news.

    I am hoping… Daniel sleeps through the night tonight.

    I am learning… how to do transactions for a cash business in Sage

    In my kitchen… I made beef stroganoff and noodles for Sunday dinner. Mom took care of the salad, beans, and pie.

    In the school room… Daniel was asking to go to school when my alarm went off yesterday and today. It was adorable!

    Post Script… the reason you tie shoelaces for people as a doctor.

    Looking out my window… sunny now though it was raining earlier and we’ve had a few days of good rain. Weather.Com says it’s 50F and I believe them.

    I am thinking… about my Doodle assignment this week.

    I am thankful… for classes I like this quarter.

    One of my favorite things… when my sports teams win. My Giants beat San Diego and I’m hoping my Niners can beat Arizona.

    I am wearing… a grey heather long-sleeved shirt and jeans. Church clothes this morning were a blue-grey long-sleeved shirt, black slacks, and black flats.

    I am creating… various Doodle polls.

    I am listening to… classical music on a DISH Network channel

    I am hoping… Daniel’s appointment with the Autism Center at Seattle Children’s Hospital this week goes well. We’ve been waiting for this appointment for a very long time. (The waiting list for an appointment is over a year long.)

    I am learning… about email best practices.

    In my kitchen… coq au vin is cooking.

    In the school room… Daniel continues to love school.

    Post Script… Tesla’s aid to victims of Hurricane Maria.
