...Reading: 29 Gifts: How a month of giving can change your life by Cami Walker

...Listening To: Night Sessions by Chris Botti

...Anticipating: The premiere of The Walking Dead on AMC

...Blogcrushing On: Crimes Against Hugh's Manatees

...Remembering: What it's like not to be over-programmed and to be able to sleep in on a Saturday

...Wearing: My jammies (yes, at almost noon)

...Driving: My trusty Nissan Versa (I mean, I'm not driving as I blog this, but still)

...Smelling Like: Right Guard Clinical Strength (because it was only $2 a can at Big Lots, which is half the price I pay for the Normal -- Non-Clinical? -- Strength stuff at Meijer) and also CKFree for men, but not in a convertible in the desert (Also, check out the scent profile: top notes of absinthe, jackfruit, thai star anise, juniper berry; heart notes of South African buchu, suede, coffee absolute, tobacco leaves; base notes of Costa Rican ironwood, oakwood, patchouli, Texan cedarwood. Whatever that means.)

...Creating: A plan -- an actual plan!

...Procrastinating By: Making this ridiculous list, haha

...Longing To Go: On an adventure that will test my skills, my faith, and my heart (Wondering if that can happen close to home or if it will require travel)

...Contemplating: My votes on Tuesday

...Wishing For: That day when we can all be quiet enough to really hear each other

This has me thinking about what I'm currently doing. Feels like nothing. Or at least in the realm of insignificant.

Fascinating. How do you mean? Without question, you're reading something and driving something and smelling like SOMETHING...

Maybe some of the other blanks are a little tougher to fill in, but I know for a fact that, between building your house into a home, lovingly designing learning paths for your students, challenging yourself and developing professionally by pursuing graduate study, regularly making music that brings glory to God, etc., you're doing a lot.

Not so insignificant, if you ask me. Which you didn't, but when have I ever let THAT stop me? :)

Your comment made me cry. I just thought you'd like to know. I needed that. It's been a rough day.

Hey, so I guess that was my gift today in the 29 Days of Giving! :)

Sorry today was so hard. Lunch after church, maybe?
