~I've been grading projects all weekend long, sitting at my desk like a real-live grown-up, watching old Disney musicals like a real-live kid. I love my watermelon slice-colored walls, and seeing the shelves of books smiling at me. I am taunted by the shelf full of Friends I Haven't Met Yet, and it's taken all of my will power not to just curl up on the fainting couch and read the afternoons away, instead of reading projects of kids who insist their "idol" is Eminem. Seriously? Most of them have been wonderful, though, and the kids have really poured thier hearts into the mission of this project.
~I watched Avatar last night for the first time on my great big ginormous new TV, and holy crap! That is one seriously spectacular movie, and I definitely see what all the fuss was about now. It was unlike anything I have ever seen before.
~We're going out to lunch this afternoon, and one of the most decadent summer delights is a martini in the middle of a Sunday afternoon.
~My closet is the only place in our house that still smells like cigarette smoke. It's disgusting. Any suggestions?
~Six and a half more days to go. And THEN I can curl up on the couch with I Capture the Castle and my back issues of Real Simple and People magazine guilt-free.
Today is one of those days where I just feel peaceful and comfortable in my own skin, and very grateful and aware of the many blessings in my Wonderful Life. I hope you are feeling that way, too.
