Right Now

Right now I'm....

Thinking....I should have explained Water Fire a little better! Here's a link. It's a BEAUTIFUL display of braziers on the river going through Providence that are lit on fire at sunset. There's music; food venders; living statues; shopping; tons of people. It happens at least once a month or so from May through October. A really fun night that early in the evening is a family event. Later in the night are for the romantics! Ree loved it. When she was a baby (and we lived 5 minutes from it) we went to every one. This year is the first one we've gotten to and I'm hoping for at least a few more!

Hoping....that I can cook some things in the oven early this week before the weather starts to warm up again.

Praying...for the people in Colorado. I can't imagine what they are going through.

Feeling...very sleepy still from a weekend of late nights, but lots of fun!

Planning....lists for our "camping" trip that's coming up! (spending days camping but nights at home!)

Wondering...if it'll continue to rain more today

Grateful....for family fun

Hearing...the sound of fans and the birds singing

Wishing....everyone has a wonderful week!


  1. Thanks for the link it looks like a super fun time to be there! I cannot do late nights anymore, too old ;)

  2. Haha - you didn't need to explain it to me! Water Fire has been one of our favorite things since we moved here. You just reminded me to get some baking done tonight. I have been procrastinating baking zucchini bread but I forgot that it's going to warm up again.

  3. I don't think I've been to WaterFire since before kids. It's just too long a drive at night with kids and the hassle of I just complain when a WaterFire overlaps with a daytime event we're trying to get to in Providence (a class, usually) and they block the roads off ALL DAY so I can't find a parking place. Grumble grumble. :)

    But! I remember when they were building Waterplace park and moving the rivers. I'm That Old. I think I was in college.

  4. I love your plans to camp during the day but sleep at home at night! I must try that sometime.

  5. nice start to the week!!!! and your "camping" is my kind of camping, too!!
