READING: Still at it with the homeschool curriculum catalogs.
POOLSIDE READING: Hamlet; articles from scholarly journals about Hamlet; literary analyses of Hamlet; comparisons of Hamlet's Claudius to Fidel Castro; critical reviews of filmed versions of Hamlet; theatrical criticisms of different modes of staging Hamlet. There is so much Hamlet in my head lately, it's starting to sound funny when I say it: Hamlet, Hamlet, Hamlet.
LISTENING TO: a Hannah Montana episode on the Disney Channel. Against my will.
THINKING ABOUT: whether or not we should tackle Latin next school year. My heart says "Yes! Yes! Yes!" but my mind says, "You will suck. Just.....don't. Okay? Don't."
HAPPY TO SEE: that the perennials we planted out back are taking hold and doing well.
FAVORITE NEW FIND: this really great lotion, completely free of petroleum by-products (which I refuse to rub on my skin), that not only moisturizes really well, but also smells of satsuma and patchouli. I'd like to squirt a little dab into each nostril so that I can keep on smelling it, but I was afraid that might create a bad impression.
FAVORITE THING TODAY: getting ready to go to the library, always one of my favorite things to do, ever in this world.
WISH I HAD: the time to go get a mani/pedi. Well. And the money, of course.
SCRAPBOOK PAGES THIS WEEK: none, because I'm still freaked out. But I did buy a nice little tablet to keep in my purse that I can jot journaling thoughts down on. I haven't used it yet, but I did make the effort to purchase.
PRAYING FOR: so many people who are sick and suffering, I can't list them all. Please join me in praying for all those who need it, and especially for those who think they don't.
