I am...

Reading:  A Memory Called Empire, by Arkady Martine.  Still.  And Marketing textbooks.  Uggg.  And blog posts.  And the Washington Post (I read that every day).

Listening to:  the fan from the bedroom.  The tick of the clock.  The tinnitus in my head.  Otherwise silence, lol.

Loving:  having my Mom 15 minutes down the road.  We went over there and provided tech support yesterday, along with a homemade pizza.  Her apartment is coming along—pictures being hung, etc.  She took several years worth of photographs that had hung in the old house and made a scrapbook that I love! 

Thinking:  about how sick I am of school.  Why I took on another master’s degree is beyond me (at least that’s the way I feel this minute).  I’m just burned out on the whole process.

Feeling:  blah and antsy all at once.  My mood is all over the place today.

Celebrating:  Got phase III of outside Christmas done.  Hubs had an exam and wasn't in the mood so I got the ladder out and did the lights on the tree in our front yard all by myself.  It was lovely being out in the sun.  I can't wait until night falls and I can see the whole thing alight!

Grateful for:  EVERYTHING

Weather:  a gorgeous, sunny day today, high of 48.  I sat in the sun, with my sun hat on, and worked on the dreaded Marketing awhile.  In a t-shirt and sweats.  In November.  I love New Mexico in the Fall. 

Enjoying:  The Spanish Princess on Starz.  The story of Katherine of Aragon’s early years with Henry VIII.  It's wildly melodramatic and historically inaccurate, but fun, nonetheless.

A quote I want to share:   

Dare to be yourself.  –Andre Gide

  1. About that Masters.. "Eyes on the Prize". You will get it done and it will YOURS ALL YOURS!
    It's lovely that your mother lives close by. That's a treasure in and of itself.
    Congratulations on the tree decorating! What a job! Merry Merry...
