As I look outside my window: Sun is shining, the leaves are a fun mix of colors even here in the relatively season-less Bay Area.
Right now I am: Attempting to blog while Quentin climbs all over me... it's a challenge.
Thinking and pondering: What activities/projects do I need to prioritize next? There's always something coming up, just ned to decide on an order that makes sense.
On my bedside table: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly; The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
On my tv this week: J and I watched a few movies (Why Him?; The Little Hours; Spiderman Homecoming). Arthur and I watched a few episodes of Avatar. We only have four episodes left in the series!
Listening to: Yesterday's pirate music mix J created. I was really getting into the pirate shanties. And it even included all the songs from The Pirates of Penzance.

- Monday - Southwest Beef and Cabbage
- Tuesday - Chicken Tortilla Soup
- Wednesday - Lemon and Caper Fish
- Thursday - Beef Stew; Rosemary Flat Bread

On my to do list: I need to buy some plane tickets, make eye appointments, finish cleaning from the party, redo our big to do lists (birthday party was a big event cluttering my list), do a playroom cleanout (thinking of getting rid of the baby toys), schedule retreat info meetings, craft a ton, and read!

- Monday - Errand day
- Tuesday - Oakland Zoo!
- Wednesday - Pumpkin patch?
- Thursday - Arthur's doctor appointment
- Friday - Probably a home day
- Saturday - Stamp Club

What I am creating: Now that the birthday party is over, I need to focus on creating Christmas cards for my Christmas card classes and personal use.
My simple pleasures: Rum punch and cupcakes!
Looking around the house: The kitchen needs a good wipe down after yesterday's big birthday party and the playroom is a disaster. No huge tasks, but i would like to get to them today.
