FOR TODAY April 28, 2013
Outside my window… dark. It was in the 90′s today. I will be smacking the next person who denies climate change.
I am thinking… that in response to people posting about homeschooling their kids to keep them away from “godless liberals”, I totally want to respond by saying that I’m sending my kids to public schools to keep them away from the people saying those things. I almost want to get a shirt that says “I’m the godless liberal your parents warned you about.”
I am thankful… for the water fight and tickle fight I had with Daniel today and in general I’m thankful for his laugh.
In the kitchen… nothing from scratch. Must fix that.
I am wearing… blue v-neck shirt and capri sweats.
I am creating… nothing yarn-wise but always coming up with plot things for NaNoWriMo.
I am going… shopping tomorrow for toiletries and trying to figure out something to cook that I actually want to eat.
I am wondering… how to post something on Facebook calling out those who are posting partisan and factually incorrect things and telling me that I don’t know that I’m talking about because I give in to the “liberal media”. Riiiiight… the fact that I have a B.A. in Religious Studies focused around comparative religon and part of a Masters in Theology can’t mean that I actually know what I’m talking about, right? (Not to mention that one of the things that they’re making factual inaccuracies about is one of my areas of specialty.)
I am reading… Just finished The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny. She is amazing when it comes to the chiaroscuro of the human soul. Next book will be Death by the Dozen by Jenn McKinlay or possibly taking Maphead by Ken Jennings back up.
I am hoping… my allergies/cold/crud is on its way out.
I am looking forward to… Ladies’ Night Out on Wednesday.
Around the house… clean thanks to having company on Saturday and a young mom in the congregation to come and clean for me. (I pay her well and she is the reason I’m functional.)
I am pondering… how someone could have gotten my debit card number when I’m fanatical about keeping it secret. Thank God I was checking my account online and caught the bogus charge.
A favorite quote for today… “Why I often find myself at such cross-purposes with the modern world: I have been a converted Pagan living among apostate Puritans.” — C.S. Lewis
One of my favorite things… making a good play on Words With Friends.
A few plans for the rest of the week: shopping tomorrow and possibly filing a police report, Morning Prayer and NCIS/NCIS:LA on Tuesday, Ladies’ Night Out on Wednesday, watching the cinecast of Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me on Thursday, and possibly a trip to San Jose this weekend.
