As I look outside my window: It's dark... I'm writing this on Saturday night.
Right now I am: J and I are watching the remake of True Grit. I've never seen either. Very good.
On my bedside table: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine, lots of comics...
On my tv this week: J and I have been watching old episodes of Q.I. and Supernatural, plus more current episodes of Full Frontal.
Listening to: Lots and lots of podcasts. I'm also caught up with the backlog of Sorta Awesome episodes, plus my usual NPR Politics and NPR Up First.

On my to do list: Earlier this week I did another brain dump. Every couple of weeks, i need to do a brain dump to get all the crazy tasks out of my head so I can focus on one or two at a time. Pic is just the first page. I'm up to four pages so far...

What I am creating: Working on my cards for August. I've got only a few done, but at least two of those are for August's stamp club.
My simple pleasures: Oreo ice cream, cooler nights, decorating my Happy Planner, fun fluffy historical romances.
Looking around the house: The upstairs is looking really good after my crazy cleaning from this week. The downstairs is just constantly in a state of upheaval. To be fair, we spend 90% of our waking hours downstairs, so it just gets used more. I am feeling like another toy purge is needed soon...
From the camera: Homemade French Bread and Sausage, Potato, and Spinach Soup from Friday's dinner. Ignore my messy stovetop.
