tuesday with tommie

***I thought I was getting all creative and artsy shooting a pic in front of the brick. But the wind was blowing like a "herd-a-cane (Livi and Will speak for hurricane). Then I glanced up just as the the camera took the picture.....dang...I need to get my roots done. PS, I have an appointment next week. Bring on the color. I am too young to go gray!***

WHAT I’M READING: Just got the new Real Simple for April 2009. Kind of exciting just to write April...I am so over winter. Remind me why I wanted seasons???

WHAT I’M WATCHING: I have NEVER gotten into American Idol.....so I am forced to watch Rock of Love the Superfan challenge episode

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO: during the day I listen to my favorite radio station podcasts..Bobby Bones out of Austin. I can listen to his morning show online if I am home. But I tend to run errands while the kids are at preschool. But it is so easy to download the podcasts to my Iphone.

WHAT I’M WEARING: jammie pants....t-shirt....it is 9:30 at night.

WHAT I’M EATING: had Chinese for dinner....chicken with veggies. It was only okay.

WHAT I’M ENJOYING: I love Tuesday evenings.....Monday and
Tuesday days are pretty busy. We made cookies today, then rushed off to ballet for Livi. Wednesdays are so laid back.

WHAT I’M SNIFFING: Mississippi Mud cookies (recipe in the previous link) we made today. These were really good! You melted chocolate to mix into the butter and sugar. Oh me, oh my! They really were yummilicious! Want one, we have plenty left over even after sharing with the neighbors and the kids' teachers.

WHAT I’M READING: Your sweet blog entry :-)

WHAT I’M WATCHING: I just shut the tv off...but I was watching As Time Goes By

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO: The heater, someone IMing me (beep, beep, beep)

WHAT I’M WEARING: jammie pants...sweat shirt...slippers

WHAT I’M EATING: had leftover rigatoni & meatballs for dinner...a grapefuit and some kettlekorn

WHAT I’M ENJOYING: The quiet :-)

WHAT I’M SNIFFING: Some new solid perfume I recently got...and that I'm going to be giving away on my blog. Not sure how yet LOL!

I <3 Tuesdays with Tommie...that picture of you is cool, but I'd've cropped it without the nose. And those cookies sound good!

The picture of you in front of the brick wall is fantastic! You really are a talent.

tommie said...

janet- I'll do a "recrop"

Lisagh-thank you! You know coming from someone as creative as you, I take this as the highest compliment.

Jen said...

I also love the brick wall pic!

On a limb with Claudia said...

I love the brick wall picture too - it's so you....

Let's see following Janet's lead:

What am I reading: "It's all to much" book about... ta da... clutter.

What am I watching: No TV. so....

What am I listening to: Don't tell anyone but I've been listening to piano jazz. I think it builds new neurons because of my decision to be rid of clutter.

What am I wearing: jeans, tank, long sleeved, t-shirt, fleece, I'm over winter too.

What am I eating: We had lentil stew for dinner.

What am I enjoying: Everything - although 2 black garbage bags later, I'm a little sick of shredding.

What am I sniffing: Tension tamer pre-bed tea.

Love the look on your face and I do love the pic!
I agree, too young to go grey. "Maybe" when i'm 80. Maybe.

Yes, I will gladly accept one or a dozen of those awesome looking cookies right now! :-) I'm hungry!

TavoLini said...

mmmm---those cookies look right on! I like the pic of you looking up :)

Fleur de Lisa said...

Yeah, why DID you want seasons? ;)
Those cookies look so good. I am a fool for cookies.

I can't wait to dig into the April edition of RS either. Hopefully this weekend I'll have time.

Heather said...

Tommie I LOVE the pic of you in front of the bricks, looking up and all. It's really good. Those cookies look absolutely heavenly. I am actually drooling!

Izzy 'N Emmy said...

Send some right over!

That shot of you is fabulous and so are the ones of the kidos!

Susan said...

I'm cracking up at all the things going through your head while you are getting the shot. It makes it all that more interesting!

IamDerby said...

oh yum those cookies look awesome!

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

I do like that photo of you in front of brick T.

Gray? What gray?

I've started to pluck my gray, is that wrong? Suddenly the plucking isn't enough!

Now send some of those cookies over!
