As I look outside my window: Admiring the different shades of green on the trees out back.
Right now I am: Taking a moment before crop day starts. Hoping to knock out a few leftovers projects today.
Thinking and pondering: What's the best way to get the twins' stuff home? Their clothes plus back to school supplies and general shopping to limiting the space in their luggage. We need to contemplate our packing options.
On my bedside table: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty (book club selection); Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige
On my tv this week: I knocked out a few episodes of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell while J was busy working one night. It's been on my to watch list for awhile now. So very good! On the movie front J and I finally watched Cockneys vs. Zombies (so so funny) and Empire Records (love that one). We introduced the twins to Oh Brother Where Art Thou. I'm not sure they really appreciated its awesomeness.
Listening to: Not much besides NPR Up First and Politics podcasts.

On my to do list: I have a few random crafty projects to finish. I also need to start gathering our Back to School supplies. I've already gotten my list of clothes to buy for the twins. Now I need to get my list for their other supplies. Plus I'm hoping to knock off a few more months of my blog fix. Oh yeah, and read my book club book and be able to watch the mini series before the 23rd...

What I am creating: I need to catch up with our Project Life albums. I also want to start my June memory planner pages. And I have a stack of old card kits that I want to finish for my Thank You and Happy Birthday stashes.
My simple pleasures: Ice water and hats on a hot day; playing card games with the twins
Looking around the house: After getting home yesterday from the Pinball Museum, we did a crazy clean up of the downstairs. Sweeping, wiping, and vacuuming. It's looking good down here!
From the camera: The twins enjoying some pinball yesterday.
