Last night we had Chinese food that we brought home. We always make a big deal out of choosing and reading your fortune cookie with the kids.
I was so thrilled with my fortune that I have to share it with you!
It read, "You are a lover of words. Someday you will write and publish a book."
For those of you who don't know, I LOVE to read and write!
And, I have started writing a novel! I spent about the last 3 months outlining characters, developing plot, and accumulating research in a notebook, and just last week I started typing the first chapter.
I taped the fortune to the mirror over my dresser in my bedroom, so every day it will inspire me to continue! Wish me luck!
Today has been an productive day! Hubby worked on the basement that we have begun to finish. He really worked hard and did a great job! It is ready for him to finish the last bit of framing and then start electrical.
Hubby and I also ran to the mall to return a gift and then to have dinner alone. It was very nice. We had a wonderful appetizer of roasted garlic with crisp cheese foccacia crackers that the restaurant makes homemade. Yummy!
It was also nice for us to talk without being interrupted, for a change! And, we had quite a few things to discuss about the kids, upcoming camping and vacation issues.
It has been lightly misting on and off all day. Not quite raining, not even a drizzle, but enough to be wet and yucky. And, to make my joints creak and scream. Dang, rheumatoid arthritis. <sigh>
Oh yeah, I also colored my hair yesterday. I am lucky that I am a medium to light blonde to begin with, and my hair takes color real well, without needing 2 steps or anything complicated. However, it was starting to look a little too light, and brassy, so I had to add some neutral ash color back in to it. It is better but almost a little too ashy now. I guess nothing is ever 'just right', but it is close enough! ;-D
