Outside my window… Just like last Tuesday, it’s rainy rainy rainy, and grey, but not quite as chilly — it’s 40F today. Snow covers about 25% of the yard still, but mostly we have very saturated grass.
I am thinking… about switching from Comcast to DSL
I am thankful for… my restored home internet service after 5 days largely without it.
From the kitchen… macaroni and cheese is calling me from a pan on the stove. I hear you, master, and I will obey —
I am wearing… jeans, a bright pink undershirt, a microfiber grey fleece pullover.
I am creating… clutter-free surfaces
I am going… to be really happy to see the sun, whenever it decides to visit us again.
I am reading … finished Stealing Athena for bookgroup last week; still halfway through Rene Girard’s Battling to the End (2007; transl 2010); still about one-tenth of the way through the massive Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader: North Korea and the Kim Dynasty by Bradley K. Martin; about to start Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury for April’s bookgroup.
I am hoping… still, for confirmation of a clean MRI result for T. And that our house closing goes smoothly on Thursday.
I am hearing… the dog’s snoring, two clocks ticking, and not much else
Around the house… the family room is ready for a sectional once we sell the other house!
One of my favorite things … is the town of Bath and my friends there!
A few plans for the rest of the week: Mom’s dr’s appt tomorrow (though I won’t be there); house closing on Thursday (though we’re not going); Easter lunch at C’s (probably) and related asparagus-buying on Sat. at the Co-Op.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing… goodbye, dear house!
