The weather outside is::::
Today is PERFECT! Yesterday we had flooding rains, wind and upper 50s-lower60s!!! Today is all sunshine and gorgeous upper 70s.
On the breakfast plate this morning::::
Nothing yet. I'm going to have breakfast "hash" - eggs, turkey sausage and simply potatoes
As I look outside my window:::
The tiger lilies are in bloom. They remind me of my grandfather. HIS mother had tiger lilies and he transplanted them to his house and then later to my mother's house. The ones here aren't transplants from there since this is a rental, but they still remind me of my grandparents!
Right now I am::::
Getting a lot of laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc done. Yesterday I lazed around ALL DAY binge watching and binge reading while I listened to my shell chimes on my front porch go wild in the wind. The whole day was dark and rainy and good for nothing else!
As I look around the house::::
Um, it's a mess. But I'm working on that today!!!
On today's to do list::::
Finish all laundry
General picking up and cleaning
Fill bird feeders
Dye Em's hair purple (yeah yeah)

Still slow-reading The Poisonwood Bible (I "slow-read" one novel, savoring my favorites)
Haven't finished Spring Meadow Sanctuary yet - but finish this in a day or two
Then I plan to finish reading Pigeon English
On the TV today::::
I finished binge-watching Alphas. I wish it wouldn't have ended the way it did and I will miss a couple of the characters, especially the autistic computer genius. Loved him!
Now binge-watching "Lie to Me" - and loving it!

Establishing a Reading Culture in Your Home
I looked up the top 100 songs in Greece right now (see below as to WHY) and I made a playlist on Youtube. I'm listening to groups such as: The Avener, Fly Project and Feder.
Currently Working On Or Creating:
I am working on a novel. It takes place (mostly) in a small fishing village in Milos, Greece. I'm following along with A Novel Idea @ Going Reno. Well, at least as far as she has finished the challenge! If I follow my time schedule, I should have a first draft around Christmas.
