A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
READING: Various pieces, parts of books, online things, etc. on the WWII Atlantic Charter and personalities participating therein. Fascinating stuff. I know what you are thinking, so just don't say it and be happy for me.
LISTENING TO: Mellencamp
COOKING BYTES: The new Ina cookbook found its way to my doorstep but it is getting wrapped up for Christmas...I think. That's the plan now anyway. Patience is a virtue, right?
FAV NEW FIND: All the CSC Senior Swimmers committing to their various favorite college swim programs...so much fun to hear where they are all going to college. Signing is next Wednesday...I know I will be so excited and I also know I will cry (tears of joy for all their successes and future endeavors and tears of sadness at the thought of all of them going different directions next year).
FAV THING THIS WEEK: Carving jack-o-lanterns out of pumpkins as a family last Sunday...the last year we will all be together doing this. (See above photo: Alex, left, Mark, center, Matt, right.)
GOING TO: One of those Speedo/Tux weekends....Matt has an IYC concert on Friday night, swimming on Saturday and Sunday mornings in our Fall Frenzy meet, which means parents work the meet as well as attend, then Matt has choir rehearsal again Sunday afternoon, and whatever else we can fit in between all of that. Hoping to Twitterbake a couple of times over the weekend. Oh, and the Hoosiers and the Hawkeyes play football at noon on Saturday...always love a HooHawk game. (And, a sneak preview to my post who is going where to college next week, Mike V. has committed to Iowa to swim...so much fun for me to think of him there...definitely making a trip to see him swim in IC next year!)
PRAYING FOR: Please join me in praying for troubled teens, might be the thing that keeps all their parents on this side of sanity.
