Outside My Window. . . a small crescent moon glows in the approaching sunrise.
I am thinking. . . about my day and what I can get accomplished. Hopefully, I can connect with some people on the phone whose calls I missed on Friday. I hate playing "phone tag."
I am thankful... that the Pulmonary Hypertension support group is beginning to take root in Wyoming. I think people are starting to feel comfortable with the idea and are now reaching out for more information and help.
In the kitchen... the refrigerator is humming, probably because it contains the fixings for the Thanksgiving meal. Hopefully, the turkey inside will be thawed by Thursday morning.
I am wearing... my yellow snowman flannel pajamas.
I am creating... a prayer shawl from some donated cranberry-colored yarn.
I am going... to open an online bank account this week. I thought it was probably time to join the 21st century.
I am reading... the many magazines that have arrived in the last week. When I am finished with them, I put them in the hospital waiting rooms.
I am praying... for Mason, a young man who is in ICU who has made some great progress since last week. I pray for Mason, his family, and for the medical staff caring for him. I met Mason at the PHA conference in Houston when I was there in June. He has such a darling smile and personality.
I am hearing... the soft click of the keys as i type. I learned to type in high school on a Royal manual and an IBM Selectric with caps on the keys so the letters were covered. I enjoyed all of the exercises from that class. Nothing is more satisfying that hearing a room full of typists typing in unison to music. Typing is no longer taught many high schools; some may teach key boarding, but most students type by constantly looking at the key board.
One of my favorite things... the yarn winder. I love the way it forms cakes of yarn that pull from the center and sit flat on the floor. I use it all the time when I ravel thrift shop wool sweaters.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: a) volunteer at the hospital today, b) knitting night on Tuesday, c) judge at a speech contest on Wednesday, d) prepare holiday dinner
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
and lean not unto thine own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
(Proverbs 3:5 - 6 NIV)
