The Summa Mamas Monday Day Book
Outside My Window... Dump trucks, back hoes and other equipment involved in a water/sewer project of epic proportion. This has to go down in the books as the least restful sick day I could have possibly taken.
I am thinking... ahead!
I am thankful for... the fun of Emily’s shower. And for my sister and niece being able to attend.
From the kitchen... not much at this moment.
I am wearing... Lanz nightgown topped plus a heavy cable knit sweater, slipper socks and my favorite Maine Isle Flip-flops. Not exactly what I see in Vanity Fair. Let’s call them ‘comfort clothes.’
I am creating... in my mind. I finished the nesting boxes that my sister commissioned for Emily and I’m having one of those decoupage overdose days.
I am going... slowly.
I am reading... Infinite Jest, The Habit of Being, the usual backlog of magazines and catalogs. And the December Vanity Fair - so I can feel both dowdy and morally superior.
I am hoping... for the best. Prepared for the worst.
I am hearing... Dump trucks, back hoes, etc. It looks like they are just going to work ‘round the clock until the ordeal is done.
Around the house... a moment of blessed tidiness in the wake of my sister’s visit. It won’t last.
One of my favorite things... Young pot-bellied pigs.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: The usual. Plus some plotting for Thanksgiving.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
