a list.

10 February 2012

Anticipating my son's after school play date, I made a quick batch of cookies, laid out some apples (to be cut up fresh when the boys arrived) and sat down with a cup of coffee to make a quick to-do list for tomorrow. Here's what's up...

  • purchase the book Q184 by Haruki Murakami for my Kindle
  • gather supplies so the kids can finish creating valentines for their classmates
  • finish sewing the kid's Valentine's surprise presents
  • buy a baguette from the bakery on Pekini Street
  • purchase a skinny dry erase marker so I can fit more list items on my coffee mug!

Ha! Love the last one. That's a cool cup by the way. You can write on it? Where did you get that?! I MUST know.

@Pat: I do love my cup. Yes, it's a stainless steel dry erase cup. You can write on the stainless steel or a thin plastic sheet that is removable (and then wedged between the two parts-- the steel cup and the harder plastic exterior). I bought mine at Starbucks in the States (and hauled it back on my last flight since there aren't any Starbucks stores in this area of the world!). Here's the link if you want your own (which I highly recommend!): http://www.starbucksstore.com/stainless-steel-create-your-own-tumbler-16-fl-oz/011010296,default,pd.html?start=16&cgid=tumblers-and-travel-mugs

@Babs in Amman: Or, you'd just drink far too much coffee and stare at your to-do list.... like me ;) By the way, congrats on gaining an International Women's Association in Amman! That is a fantastic addition, I'm sure!

So curious what you think of 1Q84, when you have read it. I have strong opinions!! Leslie

@Leslie: OOH! Can't wait to hear your strong opinions. I'm only about 1/4 of the way through and it's my first book by Murakami. I'm reading two other books simultaneously, so I'm moving a bit slowly on this one. Can't wait to discuss with you and learn your thoughts on it. Have you read any of his other books?
