For Today - April 15, 2011

Outside my window… clouds, whipping winds and chance of thunderstorms. Yup, it’s April on the prairie (after the last two gorgeous days, we had forgotten).

I am thinking… that I need to perform a complete pond cleaning this year. It’s been at least three years since we pumped it out and thoroughly hosed it all down. It’s a full day, back breaking job, but the pond really needs it.

I am thankful for… all the resources I have. Recently, on Facebook, a friend posed the question – If you were incredibly wealthy, what extravagant purchase would you make? The responses varied from “a personal plane” to “a winter home in the Bahamas”, etc. I thought about it, and I realized that compared to 99% of the world’s population, I am already incredibly wealthy. I’ve already made several extravagant purchases just in the past month [just start with that thousand pound horse]. I am extremely blessed.

From the kitchen… shrimp with Asian noodles and salad for dinner tonight - fast and easy.

I am wearing… lots of blue today – blue jeans, a turquoise polo shirt and my royal blue trench coat.

I am creating… nothing!! I need to finish off the Italy book and hopefully start on a little book for Brian’s 5th grade teacher.

I am going…
to the stable this afternoon, then off to book club at Anne’s tonight.

I am reading…
The Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, our book club selection this month. Unfortunately, I’m only about 10 pages into it. I can’t seem to find the time to read unless I am on vacation.

I am hoping…
my sister sends me the picture of the piano in her house….I’ve reminded her at least twice now… [Hello, Bueller….. anyone home?]

I am listening to…
Adele’s 19 album. I realize I am way behind the times. Erica downloaded Rolling in the Deep off her current 21 album and I’m catching up with her previous work.

Around the house…
the winter boots, gloves and coats have been put away. I must have brought upon the wrath of old man winter, because there’s snow in the weather forecast this weekend.

One of my favorite things…
my 105mm macro lens [yet another extravagant purchase, I admit]. I’ve had it less than two weeks and I wish I had bought it sooner.

A few plans for the rest of the week… weather permitting, soccer and baseball games are scheduled for tomorrow’s full Saturday. The baseball season officially kicks off this weekend, so next week we’ll have a full schedule of games, practices and visits to the stable.

A few pictures to share:
Flame

Finged
Both taken with my 105mm macro lens. I am so in love with this lens....

"How can I possibly be expected to handle school (or a camera for that matter) on a day like this?" - Ferris Bueller, with a slight tweak from me! Alright, I just sent the picture of the piano...It is a gorgeous, 85 degree day here in Charlotte. We are having a wonderful Spring Break!
