This time, on time.  I’m really enjoying this!

FOR TODAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2009:

Outside my window…  the sun is shining, but it is cold — 17 degrees above zero, Fahrenheit.

I am thinking…  of all the things I have yet to do, before leaving the house.

I am thankful for…  being over my cold.  Colds are always such nuisances — you feel like a dog’s breakfast, but they aren’t usually serious enough to warrant full-blown Staying in Bed to Get Better.

From the learning rooms…  Another Byzantine chant class, this week for Vespers.  I would enjoy this a whole lot more if Byzantine chant went anyplace that makes sense to my ear.

From the kitchen…  Slow-cooked beef stew for supper!

I am wearing…  a forest-green tailored blouse with a khaki-colored, ankle-length knit skirt.

I am creating…  at the moment, wrestling with how to get my book out of the beginning and into the meat of it.  Question:  How does a fundamentally gentle man react when his wife betrays him?!

I am going…  to work, in about half an hour.

I am reading…  still between reads, but I expect to pick up Bread and Water, Wine and Oil for Great Lent.

I am hoping…  that the back porch won’t be too icy as I make my way down the steps to the driveway.

I am hearing…  the slow cessation of morning traffic outside my door.  This town is so quiet, come around 9:30 in the morning.  It used always to be quiet, till people started moving up from Massachusetts because housing is (was!) so much cheaper here.

Around the house…  Daily chores are done:  beds are made, laundry washed, dishes washed.

One of my favorite things…  wool.  I have treated myself, via catalogue shopping, to a new lace pattern and two balls of a wonderful peach-colored wool, and plan to make myself a head scarf for church.  The one I have keeps slipping off my head, and those lace chapel caps look so “doily.”  I’m hoping that a light fingering-weight wool scarf will stay on better.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  The Sunday bulletin for church…  making some progress on a stitch-along I’m doing with a cross-stitch group…  depending on the weather, visiting my daughter in Maine come mid-week.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…
