Outside my window… 56F at 11 am, up from 35F at about 8:30. Chilly! But sunny. I can see the weeping crab when I look over my shoulder out a front window.
I am thinking…about Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, and that part of the world generally; about health care costs, long-term care, retirement, and other money and medical issues.
I am thankful for… T’s clear scan last week
From the kitchen… we are eagerly awaiting the mouse to get caught in the live trap; until then, my trips to the pantry will be few and fast.
I am wearing… jeans, maroon wool sweater, wool socks, brown sneakers
I am creating… nothing again, now that the garden is designed and planted for this year (other than constant watering and perhaps some bulbs)
I am going… to Boston on Thursday, I think
I am reading … nothing!
I am hoping… we can find someone to take care of the dog for two week over Christmas and New Years, though I can hardly stand the thought of leaving her at all.
I am hearing… spouse typing and sighing loudly as he works from home
Around the house… we’ve lived here for a year this week!
One of my favorite things … a mouse-free house
A few plans for the rest of the week … lunch in Boston on Thursday, nothing else planned this week. Need to get a new laptop soon; this one has increasingly more coloured vertical lines and shadowed areas on the screen.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…
