Outside My Window. . . the darkness is thick and cold. I can hear the neighbor's car idling and car doors slamming, yet I can see nothing.
I am thinking... about the up-coming election. This election will definitely affect the future of America. I pray that every voter casts a ballot based not on party or personalities but on research and qualifications.
I am thankful... that the "bug" I had last week has finally run its course.
In the kitchen... the dishwasher has finished its cycle and needs emptying.
I am wearing... a blue and black dress.
I am creating... a twined rug that my sister requested for Christmas. I didn't do much work on it this past week.
I am going... to cast-on a cardigan sweater for my great-niece's American Girl Doll. She requested one for Christmas.
I am reading... nothing at the moment. I need to go to the library.
I am hoping... to finish the twined rug this week and to start a sweater for my great-niece's American Girl doll.
I am hearing... country music from the clock radio in my bedroom. Often, it does not wake me. Sub-consciously, I hear the music, and I am lulled back to sleep. The radio plays for two hours and then shuts itself off.
One of my favorite things... my computer and the internet. I love to research topics that pop into my mind. The internet gives me access to the largest library imaginable.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: a) meet with PH support group co-leader and prepare display boards for November, b) lunch with two friends, c) prepare PH items for weekend health fair booth.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
Sisters are friends that God picks for us. He did a wonderful job picking my two sisters: Evelyn is my oldest (10 years older) sister, and Marilyn is 8 years older than me. Even though we live hundreds of miles apart, we manage to get together at least once a year. Both Evelyn (everyone in the family calls her Sis) and Marilyn love to quilt. I dabble at quilting because it gives me something to share with them, but I prefer knitting.
