Light and Fluffy

It seems I've been all about the heavy-hitting and thought-provoking posts of late, so I thought I'd change it up a bit today. And once again, I'm filching (and twisting) an idea from Barbara. Shh... don't.tell.anyone.

The ABCs of ME! (My only hope is that this entertains someone other than me...)

A - Anxious for time Alone

B - Brainstorming Blurbs for the little Book I'm making the hubs for Valentine's Day

C - Can't get Cold toes warmed up

D - Disappointed in the book I started reading this morning

E - Excited about my WIP!

F - Fulfilling the demands of a sweet (and busy!) three-year-old

G - Glad it's Friday

H - Hoping my oldest makes it through the full school day (she's been sick all week) and can enjoy her Valentine's party this afternoon

I - Ignoring the pile of laundry... for now

J - Juggling lots of tasks

K - Kicking myself for bad habits I've fallen into

L - Looking out my window, over the falling snow

M - Massaging my head to keep its ache at bay

N - Not hungry, which is unusual

O - (trying to) Overlook frustrations, so I don't get bogged down by them

P - Plots and premises are on my mind, thanks to Donald Maass's Writing the Breakout Novel

Q - Quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson: You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.

R - Relishing the warmth and light two new lamps throw from my bedroom

S - Sipping on a (homemade!) iced mocha... *sluuuurp* Oh no! It's all gone!

T - Thinking of renting Fireproof for the weekend

U - Urging thoughts to travel to my fingertips and onto my WIP's document

V - Valentine's Day wishes fill my mind...

W - Waiting for the roast and peppers to heat up and fill the house with thick aroma

X - X-rays showed a need to return to the dentist

Y - YouTube's playin' a beat, got me dancin' in my seat

Z - Zippin' around to music - that's how I best accomplish housework

What are your ABCs?

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope it's filled with blessings and love.

And here's the link to an article I wrote last year (I can't explain it, but for some reason the opening paragraph is missing...) : Valentine's Day Activities for Preschoolers

Enjoy!

Fun! I like to clean to music too. It makes a chore a little more fun! I remember my mom cleaning house to Fleetwood Mac. Every time I hear them, it brings back those memories.

Happy Valentines to you and your family!

Jessica said...

How funny! Happy Valentines. :-)

Oohhhh, I'm going to see Fireproof this Sunday night at a church. They are even providing child-care. Can't wait!

Happy V-Day.

Loved your ABC's. Happy Valentine's Day!!

Jen said...

Cool list, Janna. :) I love your quote.

And I always clean house to music, too. Helps make chores a lot more palatable, and the kids are happier to help that way, too, lol.
