Outside my window...it is grey. The color of the end of November, leaves gone, branches bare, roofs and building wall showing, clouds in the sky…grey.
I am thinking...about how much color affects my mood…I have to be good about keeping the brights around me as the grey season goes on, I think.
I am thankful for...red, yellow, orange, green, purple, blue and turquoise. Grey, not so much.
From the learning rooms (known as Google in this case) the difference between affect and effect which was part of a brain fart this morning…
From the kitchen...recipes for Gluten Free Pumpkin Cheesecake which I am bringing to the Father-in-Law’s on Thursday – my sister-in-law was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease and while I won’t do the stuffing without bread crumbs, I sure can find a way to make sure she gets a sweet dessert !
I am wearing...grey (yikes!) pajama bottoms, a plum colored long sleeve t-shirt and my slippers (okay, my old, very, very beat up green El Naturalista clogs…)
I am creating... packages of notecards of my art work as gifts for the people in my Mom’s office – a contract from my lovely boss’s wife, Lottie. Profits from these will help me with my own Christmas gift giving ! Thanks, Lottie !
I am going...to stay home today and hang out in the studio, until Meditation Class tonight. Yay !
I am reading...nothing much really. Too ready for sleep when I hit the pillow to read. If you know of a really good book with a good story, funny, endearing, poignant and/or romantic without too much violence or horror stories of overcoming suffering, please let me know ! I will stay awake for that !
I am hoping...that all the Christmas gifties that I sent out last week to my Canadian Chickie friends arrive in good condition. December is next week. Crazy !!!!
(the packages for my Canadian Chickies – I am Day 9 – the gift is still a surprise !)
I am hearing...Azzy Cat purrs from behind me on the chair. We just finished a little lovefest of neck rubbing. His neck, my job to rub.
Around the house...quiet…greyish…Monday.
One of my favorite things...watching Azzy and Little Boo chase the new catnip Loofah Mouse I got them from Petco all around the house. I love it when the older guy, Azzy, really gets into it like a little kitten! Love my furry kiddos !
(Azzy and Little Boo do lunch.)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Meditation tonight, haircut tomorrow am, lunch with my newest girlfriend, the sassy, hilarious Susie Riley on Tuesday at noon and then, the Thanksgiving prep.begins on Wednesday. David and I will join his other 4 bros and their significant others at the Father-in-Law’s place on Thursday for the festivities.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing…
Blue Moon Shot form last night, November 21, 2010.
I love that the left over leaves on the bare branches look like upside down hearts…
Okay, I am off to fill the studio with some color and some happy tunes on this grey and quiet Monday am.
Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones !
