I am currently obsessed with: soup…of all kinds. That and oils and their basic uses for skin and mood stabilizing during the dry dismal winter months ahead. Olive oil in my shake this morning. :) And have you seen the newest Christmas catalog from Anthro…? It's about three sisters and it makes me want to go into marketing it's so spot on. :D And OneRepublic…and…removing ball-y nubby things from my clothes with a razor…. Okay, I'll stop with my obsession with obsessions.
My biggest pet peeve is: this will sound really judgmental and I feel more bad/sorry than peeved because it may be unavoidable, but here it is: when I see young school aged kids at stores after 10-11pm that look stoned they are so tired. Then if they whine, the parents are somehow mad at them when they just need a place to curl up. Most likely they will be hyperactive the next day in school trying to stay awake. I get more sad and "peeved" if the cart is chocked full of sugar in all forms. Not that I don't like sugar….but…there are other food groups out there. :)
I could eat an endless supply of: good ice cream (just tried Graeter's last night-YUM!), lettuce salad (my MIL basically makes a bowl for everyone else... and one for me when we visit. ;)
I am currently reading: A Clive Cussler Luke recommended about early flight…I try to expand my horizons-not one I would have picked on my own. ;)
My bedtime recently has been: after 11…sadly always after 11 or 12p. we say sleep is overrated over here, but secretly, I think we wish we got more. :) I don't get up until totally necessary-as in, when baby G wakes.
The last movie I watched was: Mr Popper Penguins for family movie night. Decent movie but was annoyed at several scenes with lack of respect for authority figures. After two or three incidences, it became a theme in my opinion. Doesn't follow the book at all, other than a guy getting penguins in the city. Also the use of OMG a couple times in amazement of imaginary blue wales and a fake prayer about stopping the ice caps from melting (maybe plugged-in reviews as an opening for me ;).
I am writing this while: my little Will sits on my lap with a runny nose that needs tended to for the 100th time today and listening to a Pandora ad about Black Friday shopping which annoys me, but I refuse to shell out money for ad free listening. ;)
The scripture that is really speaking to my heart is: I'm reading through Exodus and read about the details of the temple last night. I am moved by the fact that God could have given any direction for the temple he chose to, but the details are pure, natural and artistically lay out in an organized way that will bring the people together in worship and cooperation. Picturing a gold lamp stand being carefully hammered out in one piece by a maticulous artist into olive flowers was really special to me. It makes me strain my head forward to more beauty from my creator on a much grander scale.
On days when I don’t leave the house, I: play music, clean one room, homeschool, one load of laundry…clean the kitchen (again)…get excited about Luke coming home…listen to an Andy Stanley sermon while doing my nails with gel system (takes forever, but last forever so…) I stay home a lot and go out if Luke is home with the kids or the pay out for the effort isn't worth it in imo.
If I could hug anybody today, it would be: For some reason this one is hard for me. Depending on how trusting I am at the moment is whether I want hugs or not. I always want them from my Luke darling…so I'll go with that. I dislike fake hugs (not friendly half hugs, those are fine).
