How many languages do you you speak?
Um, I speak English, Sarcasm, and Profanity fluently. I speak French and Toddler proficiently. I speak Spanish poorly, and can only get into trouble in Italian. The latter two, I am much better at reading and eavesdropping. Honestly, you can only read so much without picking up some extra words and phrases in other languages. Like Latin. I didn’t take Latin. I sure know a hell of a lot of Latin for someone who never tried to learn. Of course, people don’t speak Latin anymore, they sorta declare Latin phrases to prove they’re learned, et qui bono? *wink*
What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?
Nothing. Nothing at all.
I’m between books in a way that I hope one day I get to read a book. I’ve been watching Community at night, I’ve been listening to the soundtrack from Suicide Squad, and I’ve been eating food of course, mostly take-out, but not yet today.
What was the last photo you took with your phone?
Haha! Well, I never claimed to be good at photography.
Here’s the second one, which I think we can all agree is more interesting.
What is your favorite time of day?
I like the bed times. I love that part of the morning when my body is languid and my mind is still in the surreal. I love the part where I come home and sprawl across the bed with my family and pets. I love evenings when we all huddle up on the bed and talk about the important stuff. I love how we finally get to bed at night and my back gets scratched. Plus some other stuff involving bed. Bedtimes are decidedly my favorite.
I like the wee hours, too, but only if I can go to bed after the rush.
Man, I miss my bed RIGHT NOW.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I had a good week followed by a spectacular weekend.
Saturday The Mister drove me all the way to the south side to a shop I love. I got five beautiful new pots for my poor root-bound plants! Max, for one, is grateful, as his color’s been off for some time now. Max is really big. I tried to photograph him, but it was super awkward, so this is what I decided on.
Also, one of the reasons I love that particular shop is because they sell Poppycock.
Things my MIL taught me #405: Shopping is so much better with Poppycock.
I shared. A little.
The Mister mowed the lawn, while Moo and I got the
obligatory quintessential red geraniums. Moo planted herbs while I re-potted the houseplants and some begonias. Little weeding, little fussing. Stuck some succulents in a planter. I know, it sounds like chore-type stuff, but for a gardener, it’s dreamy.
I cut some peonies and set them on the table, and then we did the thing we’re best at — sitting on the porch and smiling at all the pretty. It was a beautiful day.
Sunday, I woke to find coffee and a card that began, “A Love Letter to My Wife” — Whoa. The Mister cleared TWO garden beds in preparation for my tomatoes, sunflowers, and radishes.
I did not cook or clean all weekend.
I am ever so grateful my husband went above and beyond to give me a terrific weekend for Mother’s Day.
The girls were sweet too, but I have a feeling their sweetness had been ordained…
This week coming up is too busy for me. Field trips, early morning drop-offs, evening drop-offs, supervising culinary homework, handing out money like it’s cool, concerts, awards — on top of the regular work, cooking, laundry, errands — That’s the real May for moms! Heh. Just like December, full of wrapping-up and celebrating another semester’s progress. I can complain despite my pride, but really, it’s only ten more days til I turn off the weekday alarm, so I think I can manage!
