A Quiet Meme

Sorry for the absence. I would really love a wireless card, so I can blog when I have a few minutes to spare in the evening, instead of during my library time when I have a million things to do. Anyway... here's a lovely, somehow centering series of questions from my deep-thinking friend at Morning Coffee.


Outside My Window … someone walks past the Francis of Assisi fountain.
***
I am thinking … that I should start outlining my submissions for the Dictionary of Scripture and Ethics. And that I should probably get a shower before heading out to the Carnegie Center with Miranda tonight.
***
I am thankful for … our babysitter Marie, who takes such good care of Miranda on Wednesdays so I can study.
***
From the kitchen … probably a bowl of cereal later.
***
I am wearing … jeans, sneakers, and a Dallas Cowboys t-shirt. And a blue bandana around my hair.
***
I am creating … a tomato and cucumber garden alongside the driveway. Also, a huge mess.
***
I am going … home from the library in about an hour.
***
I am reading … Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury.
***
I am hoping … that Billy is enjoying his trip to the mountains of North Carolina.
***
I am hearing … almost nothing, I'm in the quiet room at the library.
***
Around the house … are lots and lots of hangers.
***
One of my favorite things … sitting on my front porch with Miranda, watching the birds at the feeders.
***
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... finish laundry, finish veggie beds, plant veggies, paint with Miranda, Miranda's end-of-school party, pack and fly to Texas on Friday for my uncle's funeral.
***
Here is a picture thought I am sharing … Miranda decided last night that she MUST try a boiled crawfish. I pulled off the tail and set it down, then turned my head for one second, and bingo -- down the hatch. Shell and all. The thought? BE BOLD.

Good lord. She's better than I am. Can't do the crawfish thing.
And if you dont' make a mess when you're gardening, you're not doing it right. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I'm so doing this meme.
