As I look outside my window: It's dark this Saturday night.
Right now I am: Watching the last episode of Ken Burns's The National Parks with J. I've really enjoyed this series. Even with the struggles and turmoil, I found the series to be very calming and up-lifting. Now we need to plan some trips to some of the nearby national parks.
Thinking and pondering: Christmas card designs. I usually start making my cards in September or October. It's been on my mind lately, but I need to finish my Halloween and Thanksgiving cards firsts.
On my bedside table: The Lost City of Z by David Grann; The Last Stand by Nathaniel Philbrick; The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton
On my tv this week: Ken Burns's The National Parks (we finished Saturday night!), Supernatural S2, and a few movies.
Listening to: Lots of political podcasts including Pod Save America's interview with Hillary Clinton. Fascinating!

What I am creating: I'm finishing up the birthday party crafts this week. I need to complete the big letters and a few signs. After that, I want to finish out my Halloween and Thanksgiving cards. I also have a few random card ideas rolling around my head right now. I'm thinking about using up a few scrap pieces I have laying around.
My simple pleasures: Reese's Peanut Butter Cup cookies; Tazo Passion tea concentrate (keeps me away from Starbucks); Open windows allowing the breeze and nature sounds inside
Looking around the house: Decent shape around here although I really need to move out the baby stuff. I was hoping someone in my parent group would want some stuff, but no such luck yet.
From the camera: Arthur and Quentin at the zoo on Tuesday.
