For Today: Monday, March 23, 2009

Outside My Window... Dark. It's 36 degrees but will be warming up to a nice Spring day.

I am thinking... about the great mind mapping tool I discovered recently, Xmind. I might post a separate post about it later. Great productivity tool!

I am thankful for... my weekends! It is always nice to relax and recharge my batteries for the upcoming week.

From the kitchen... For breakfast, a honey-nut with almonds cereal, coffee. Quick-n-Easy Baked Ziti (again!), salad with assorted veggies.

I am wearing... a gray-striped cotton nightshirt with embroidered pink roses, emerald-green night robe, slippers.

I am creating... Mind Maps!

I am going... to finally input the last expenses in my Pampered Chef software so I can create my expense report for taxes. It's going to go to our tax lady, who I admit is worth paying to do this sort of stuff.

I am reading... Catering to Nobody by Diane Mott Davidson and my new Envoy magazine issue. I have a new intellectual crush, by the way. Dr. Peter Kreeft. What a brilliant man!

I am hoping... to take advantage of the outline I created this past weekend for my book and keep writing. It took me some time to finally organize my thoughts, but once I did, I was on a roll. I hope to keep rolling!

I am hearing... the heat coming through the vent.

Around the house... laundry that needs to be finished, Netflix movie that still needs to be returned.

One of my favorite things... cooking for friends and family, especially my stepson and his new wife, who were in for a quick visit on Friday.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Writing, writing, writing. And getting the tax stuff in order.

Here is picture thought I am sharing. . . I need to add one of my stepson and daughter-in-law. Will post later. They really are cute, if I do say so myself!

Mind mapping? I am intrigued. Please do post more about this.
Also enjoyed your post on the Latin Mass. I do need to find and get to one in my area.
