As I look outside my window: Partly cloudy and chilly… It’s only supposed to be 64 degrees today! Brrr… That’s after almost 90 degrees days last week.
Right now I am: Finishing a pop tart, drinking coffee, checking FB, and getting ready to head off to book club.
Thinking and pondering: How do I find the time or concentration to take on work-from-home type jobs with a toddler running around and no childcare? Ugh, I hate finances.
On my bedside table: Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke, Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, In the Shadow of the Banyan by Vaddey Ratner
On my tv this week: We’re been watching a ton of Plebs and Portlandia. Plus we watched a decent episode of NOVA about the Vikings.
Listening to: One day Arthur and I listened to a ton of The Beatles. Another day, we chose The Gorillaz. He was really digging The Gorillaz.

My simple pleasures: Welch’s Peach Mango juice — my new obsession
Looking around the house: Our downstairs toilet is still not working right. J bought a part, but it hasn’t been installed yet. I hate having to go upstairs to pee…
From the camera: Someone is obsessed with brushing his teeth right now…
