I've stolen this idea from Amanda. Thank you, friend!

Outside my window... The sun has set, but today was lovely - sunny and warm enough for mowing the lawn and wearing shorts. I did both!

I am thankful for... Time and opportunity. Mercy and patience. Quiet time. Jan Michael. (You know the list is endless, right?)

I am learning... a hundred different clever things, all courtesy of Pinterest.

From the kitchen... Earlier tonight I spilled a bottle of salad dressing all over the floor; such a waste of good balsamic vinaigrette! Yesterday I found hibiscus sorbet made with coconut water at the Grocery Outlet. I like it, I think, although I bet I would have liked the Ben & Jerry's Carrot Cake more :)

I am wearing... semi-sweaty exercise clothes.

I am creating... a tablescape for Thanksgiving. The creating is mostly in my mind, but I have decided that orange glitter spray paint is going to be invovled.

I am going... to run. Tomorrow. At the crack of dawn. I'm sticking my tongue out at plantar fasciitis, too.

I am reading... I just finished The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It was wonderful & awful all at the same time. I'm going to start (skimming, not really reading) The Dukan Diet. On the top of the cover it says 'The real reason the french stay thin.' We'll see about that.

I am hoping... that it doesn't rain cats and dogs on Friday. (I'm not holding my breath about this, though!) We have a super special VIP coming to stay with us for the weekend, and we're taking her to the city for the day.

I am hearing... It's very, very quiet just now. And I like it.

Around the house... This house is in for a good scrubbing; it won't know what hit it.

One of my favorite things... to drink after a workout is Twinings Cold Brewed Iced Tea, specifically their Green Tea with Mint. I have it stocked piled in the cupboard :)

A few plans for the rest of the week... Gospel meeting, cat sitting, sushi with our brother (maybe, hopefully, I'm crossing my fingers!), the opera, Rock Band, whipping my fantasty football lineup into shape

Race was the Rampage in Lacey, WA. My little bro did the Warrior dash. I guess the two have similar obstacles, different course locations. Our course wasn't very hilly, thanks goodness. Have you come across any peanut butter & chocolate cupcake recipes? I'm salivating thinking about one!
