zird is the word [userpic]
PREPOSITIONAL MONOTONY*
On the brain:
All the things on my Anticipation list
Finalizing Iceland trip dates and purchasing airilne tickets
Giant salamis (Karin was selling them for her soccer team and our fridge is full of them until we get them all delivered). GIANT! SALAMIS!

On the table:
Work laptop & work papers
home phone & iPhone
AWC folder and calendars to update
GIANT SALAMIS!

On the floor:
Dust, though mostly it's under things
Dirt, tracked in from soccer practice and pansy potting
Hair, soon to be shed by Mental the dog who arrives tomorrow!
Various Things my family doesn't seem to see or bother to pick up

On the bookshelf:
All of Diana Wynne Jones' books, which I'm comfort-reading after hearing about her passing last week
Next Little Big bookgroup book: Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling which my kids chose over Jonathan Livingston Seagull
Figuring out who I can borrow the next bookgroup book from since I didn't want to buy it

On the heart:
My daughter: her drama queen tendencies, her school choices, her body's changes, her monster hugs
The sudden green of the lawn and the fields
My son: his enthusiasm for certain subjects, his tendency to let the world go by, his willingness to help almost everytime he's asked
My husband: his tolerance for my foibles, his handiness around the house, his rare public demonstrations of affection

Your turn!

Comments

Oh, I didn't know yet that Diana Wynne Jones had passed. I love her work. Just by coincidence I have been listening to some of her books on tape. Just finished Witch Week the other day and have started one of the "Chrestomanci" books on tape in the car, which I will have the pleasure of hearing much of on my drive up to Portland tomorrow and then in a few days on the return trip.

It's sad, she was only 76. Lots of books left unwritten. :(
