Definitely a pretty kitchen. Yellow is becoming more and more a new favorite color of mine. And how did Real Living Magazine know that I'm looking for an old school, big clock for my apartment?! Mind readers!
Need more time in the next few days. Today is only one day but it needs to hold nine hours at work, two hours of a dinner with a family friend in town + some card playing, packing for a retreat for tomorrow, gathering items to hold the food at the retreat so some of my personal style will be there in the kitchen and dining room of the retreat house (10+ bedrooms! 10+ bathrooms! not too shabby! and that's just the girls' house). Add to that packing for the gym tomorrow (5:45 AM class), working a morning, then gathering all items plus stopping to pick up containers of donated pasta e figioli soup to serve 35 people at lunch on Saturday. Did I mention that I also want to clean my apartment thoroughly so that I have a nice surprise waiting for me when I return home?! Yeah - that's not gonna happen.
Luckily for my packing time, the retreat items I need are comfy clothes, Bible, notebook, pen, "a good attitude" (according to the retreat organizer), toiletries and that's pretty much it. However, I don't travel lightly, so I consider my pillow, a small throw, and comfy socks to be "necessities". I'm sure the guys attending the retreat will spend three minutes tossing a toothbrush, toothpaste, underwear and the books they need into a small bag and calling it a day. Lucky!! (said in my best Napoleon Dynamite voice which I hear on my NP keychain)
All this to say, blogging from "morning's light" will be kinda light (hahahaha. ok not funny) the next few days but I will return with photos from the retreat (of people snoring during the sessions, of people stuffing their faces, and of pranks being pulled) and bits of the funniest moments. Because there will be some. I guarantee it.
