Late(ish) once again …
Outside my window… It’s almost but not quite dark (spring is coming!). There’s 2-3 feet of snow on the ground, some of it a bit slushy because temps were in the mid 40Fs today!
I am thinking… about spouse’s surgery in Boston tomorrow, and the logistics of driving there and back in the forecast snow …
I am thankful for… sisters, electricity!, green veggies, wine
From the kitchen… Leftovers on the menu again: choice of leftover Chinese food from Sat. night or leftover bowtie pasta with asparagus, snap peas and green beans from last night.
I am wearing… jeans, a black undershirt, that wool grey cableknit sweater with the ‘mended’ holes
I am creating… a new vision of not-religion in my head/heart
I am going… to try to keep the 4 Agreements more firmly fixed in mind/heart: be impeccable with my word — don’t do damage with words; don’t take things personally; don’t make assumptions; and always do my best.
I am hoping… that all goes well at the hospital tomorrow and on the road to and fro
I am hearing… the humidifier, the dog making delicate after-dinner noses, and assorted humming of unknown origins
Around the house… watered the plants today, need to vacuum, wishing snow were not melting and dripping on my head when I take the dog out the back door …
One of my favorite things … is not really worrying about random crime where we live. I can walk anywhere, alone, at any time, with very little chance, statistically, of attack. Risk is in the back of my mind but not the forefront.
A few plans for the rest of the week: T’s surgery tomorrow, Tyrants on Thursday, a furniture barn sale and perhaps meeting a friend for lunch on Saturday
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
