For Today

Outside my window… I see rain falling and a gray sky.

I am thinking… about the health of our cat, Stella. Tomorrow we’ll take her to the vet.

I am thankful for… a good night’s sleep.

From the kitchen… I have fresh homemade bread.

I am wearing… the usual — jeans, turtleneck, knit vest, with a pair of colorful new earrings to add dash.

I am creating… glittery wood ornaments as gifts for friends.

I am going… to wrap gifts this evening.

I am reading… chapters 11, 12, 13, and 14 again in Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life.

I am hoping… we all stay well the next few weeks!

I am hearing… the sounds of leaf-raking, an airplane descending to the airport, and boys skateboarding.

Around the house… lots of wrapping to do, the never-ending sweeping, and preparing to make a gingerbread house with Claire.

One of my favorite things… is getting personal email.

A few plans for the rest of the week: getting on the bike at 7:30 each day, and finding some time to just sit before bed.

Here is picture I am sharing..

    I enjoyed reading your post. I smiled at your comment about personal email. It’s almost equivalent to getting a nice card in the mail verses junk mail or bills.
