A Monday Excursion for the King & Queen


FOR TODAY (Monday, August 3, 2009)

Outside my window...it is a glorious summer day ! Sunny, breezy and in the 80's for today !So far, August is whooping July's butt big time !

I am thinking...that I want to do a quick post before I head out for the day's adventure.

I am thankful for...the tools I have learned that really, really work to live mindfully, be present in my life, and to make the crappy stuff easier to bear.

From the kitchen...fruit smoothies - this morning banana, strawberries, blueberries, a splah of orange juice and plain low fat yogurt - how's that for good for the morale breakfast !

I am wearing...a short blue nightie and my flipflops...Time to get dressed !

I am creating... some cool pages in my art journal, some ideas for a craft fair I will be selling at in November, and some pieces of art to decorate my bedroom walls...

I am going...on a fun excursion with the hubby today....
I am reading...Peter and the Shadow Thieves by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson - I love kid's books !

I am hoping...that the part time job I had an interview for yesterday at a local craft store pans out - the extra $$ would be oh so nice !!!!

I am hearing....this in my head over and over again !

Around the house...David and I are puttering, doing our own thing, all to get ready to head out on our excursion.

One of my favorite things...Prospeckt's March by ColdPlay...soundtrack of the day...

A few plans for the rest of the week: an excursion with the hubby today, ;), lunch with a girlfriend tomorrow, time in the studio, taking the Chica-dog to the watering hole , loving what finally feels like summer !!!

Here's a picture thought I am sharing :

OKAY ! YOU MAY HAVE GUESSED IT BY NOW ! DAVID AND I ARE GOING TO SEE

COLDPLAY

TONIGHT AT THE COMCAST CENTER IN MANSFIELD, MA !!!

YIPPPEEEE !

We are heading out around noon to see where the road takes us, but we know that at around 6:00pm, when the gates open to the funky outdoor stadium, we will be walking in with the crowds ! Coldplay puts on a fantastic show so we are in for a treat !

Hope your Monday is full of treats too, beautiful Ones !

Oh mano mano, what a great day in store! I am glad you are feeling better, that you got out your toolbox and tinkered a bit. This nice weather will help in its own way, but you still need to do the groundwork, huh? Keep smiling and I'll keep my fingers crossed for the job.

Jennifer said...

Have so much fun! Sounds like you're having a great day too :)

Congrats on getting to see your band, and the good weather (yes, finally!) and good luck on the part time job in a craft store. Not only would the money be nice, but you would meet other crafty types!

I found my way to you via Beth at More Doors and I had to tell you how much I love your banner. I haven't even read a post yet. I just fell right in love with your wonderful banner and had to tell you right now.

Have fun at the concert, Kim! i'm so glad you're smiling. Our whole family: my 2 sons plus 1 girlfriend, hubby, sister, 2 nieces, siser-in-law, and brother-in-law all went to see Bob Dylan, willie Nelson, and John Mellancamp last Thursday night, and had a wonderful time. Today is back to school day for me, but I put a little something in the mail for you. Good luck on the job. And put on some clothes, girl!

Love,
Alberta
