|New grey color on the porches|
The painters were back today. I noticed when I went outside to take a picture this evening that the gray paint makes our house look older. But not old in a bad way... like an old lake cottage with lots of porches... it reminds me of my great-grandma's house but I have no idea why. I think her house was all white.
Today I have not done much. Well, I have studied Italian UH-lot and watched a lot of episodes of Jane the Virgin. I took Austin to the Dollar General to get some necessities (cigarettes and bottled water for him, mini-starburst for me). I guess it's just another one of those days that feels so much like other days that it doesn't feel productive. I learned about sixty new Italian words and reviewed about three hundred. That's a lot. I write all the new words and their meanings in sharpie on notebook paper and keep them carefully organized in binders according to the different courses. I write the words out in advance so that when I am learning it goes faster. I wrote out two new chapters of a course today which was about... six hundred words. So it was a lot, now that I think about it.

Yesterday after I blogged we got the car back from the mechanic. I am not even sure what the problem was but apparently it was a quick fix. Last night I Facetimed with Ollie and Cody. I had the best time with Ollie. He is BUSY. Busy, busy, busy. He goes from one thing to another. He is so animated... makes sounds for all of his cars... mimics things I do on the phone like sticking out my tongue... he's just hilarious. They're coming to visit this weekend, hopefully. I asked if Cosette could come over long enough for us to get a few photos of the babies together and her mom wasn't sure what they were doing that day. We are missing so many milestones with her... I just want to capture *THIS* stage of life for the two little cousins. My mom goes to the doctor tomorrow for the follow up on her low blood pressure. And I'm still pretty much enjoying an open calendar this week although I have a pain doctor appointment this month and can't find it on my calendar so I need to figure out when that is.
And.... that's my life today. Hope you had a good one. Love and hugs and thanks for stopping by!
