Outside my window… the snow that was falling gently this morning has turned to rain, but that also means that it’s warmer.

I am thinking… mostly about various writing projects. So of what goes into my writing is turned over and over in my head before pen ever hits paper.

I am thankful for… childhood friends who are still practically family. Seeing our children now playing together is something special.

From the learning rooms… I’m so excited about the Olympic Games History class that we’ll be taking this week! (Click here for more information on the class.)

From the kitchen… I should probably bake something. It seems like baking weather.

I am wearing… jeans and a fuzzy, red sweater.

I am creating… more mittens that I’ve been asked to knit, but after this batch I’m done for a while.

I am going… to wrap up a few projects this week. Lots to do!

I am reading… Plot versus Character still, but I’m debating what fiction book to dive into next. I’ve also got a physics book that came this week to put in my reading stack.

I am hoping… that something in the very early planning stage will work out in the next couple of months. It’s interesting how many great ideas we have, and how few of them pan out in the end. There’s probably a lesson in there…

I am hearing… Beethovan’s Second Symphony. I may have eclectic music tastes, but I’ll always love classical music.

Pondering these words… “I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of.” – Joss Whedon

Around the house… a toddler is napping, kids are playing letter games, and my IT staff and I are working in the office. It’s a pretty quiet day.

One of my favorite things… is the dry sense of humor that my kids seem to have. They truly make me laugh so much!

A few plans for the rest of the week: a fun online class with the kids, more writing and knitting, lots of tea, and laundry of course
