What's Going On - For Today

Outside my window...it looks like Fall, with colorful leaves falling gently from the trees, but it feels like Spring! This may be the last of the warm, tropical weather we've been fortunate to experience.

I am thinking
...I've irritated my knee somehow (probably too much running) - the lateral side hurts again, much like it did back in March / April. Back to more swimming, less running - not ideal, but I have faith that the knee will be fine after it gets some rest.

I am thankful
...for what we have. We have a work colleague from China visiting us and after I gave her a tour of our house, I knew that we have so much abundance compared to what they have. In many ways, it's excessive.

In the kitchen
...I will be making Beef and Broccoli, Chinese style Tofu and Chicken with Wine tonight. Our colleague, Yan Rong, will be sharing dinner with us. I hope my cooking is "Chinese" enough!

I am wearing...Dark Blue pants, a steel gray tank top (because it's so warm outside) and a light sweater from the Banana Republic (new favorite store).

I am going...to all the normal places today - I went to the YMCA earlier to swim, school, work, back to school and finally, the grocery store.

I am reading...the book Pitch Perfect by Mickey Rapkin. This book inspired the movie of the same name. So far, it's hilarious, especially since I can totally relate to the subculture of college a cappella.

I am hoping...for a favorable assessment of the camera gear I sent into Adorama. Yes, I am upgrading again, but this time I am getting rid of my older gear.

I am looking forward to
...a visit to Florida next month - my sister and her family will be there!

I am learning... the Hungarian Dance Number 1 by Brahms on my violin. The double stops are getting easier and hopefully don't sound like a wailing cat (the cats no longer run away when I play, so I guess that's positive).

I am listening to... Everything Comes and Goes by Michelle Branch. It's and older and lesser known song, but I like the lyrics:

Time is going by so fast
And I can't do anything about it
I've been holding on so long
It's time that I can do without it

Everything comes and goes
I'm always the last to know
And I can see the sun come up
Another day

Around the house...we have our Halloween decorations up - new this year - Scott bought and suspended several bats around the house. They entertain the cats and freaked out our daughter (yeah, she's watched too many scary movies recently).

A few plans for the rest of the week: Violin Lessons tomorrow, followed by Parent Teacher Conferences. We don't have anything specific planned for the weekend, but I know it will include visits to the horse stable!

Finally, a photo to share - the clouds from this morning's commute to work. I feel fortunate to be surrounded by such beauty:

I enjoyed reading your daybook. It's always nice to catch up with you. =) Take it easy on your knee!! You've really made me think when you mentioned having excess compared to others in this world. Much to think about. <3
