I think about my handmade Christmas card project and sending the cards out. I also think about the gifts that I am making for people and I think about how happy I am to have a sewing machine so I don't have to sew all of those seams by hand. I think about cookies and when will I bake them? I need them on Thursday. Also I think about which paintings I want to frame. I think about decoupage and scissors and glue and glitter and lots of color. There isn't much of that outside, hence the glitter and colored paper and yarn.
Also, I think about the trip that I'm going to make to Ecuador. Then I start talking to myself in Spanish. Not very well. But it's Spanish. I think about the new friends that I'm going to make and that I will learn about another culture from them!
I think about the warmth and the sunniness and the Pacific Ocean and about papayas and fruit that grow in a warm place where the sun shines most of the time... and I think, I'm going to the equator! And then, I'm really happy that I learned how to draw and paint so that I can have a visual memento of my time in what might seem to me like another world...

Reason: wanted to add just a wee bit more
I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.
Hmm... Here lately I think about what my child is going to look like (and what the frikkin' gender is going to be!) and who s/he is going to take after looks wise... Will it get my dark hair because my husband has red hair? Will it get my eyes because my husband's are blue? Or will his genes somehow overpower my dominant genes? And I think about if I can really make it through this next semester without losing my 4.0 GPA. I wonder what colors to paint the rest of the house, and when I'm going to get around to painting the family room/dining room/kitchen area.... I wonder if I'll be able to hide my disappointment in my sister-in-law..... I wonder why my half sister won't acknowledge me at all eventhough I've done nothing to her.... And why she didn't go to our grandmother's funeral when she did everything for her....
About 50% things I'm working on/thinking about today and immediate future (a week or so), relationships with people
About 10% long-er term future
About 10% dwelling on things I've done wrong in the recent past
