Outside My Window. . . the wind is roaring. When the first gust hit the house yesterday, it sounded like someone had driven through the side of my house. I don't like getting out in the wind because it takes my breath away, and I don't have that much breath to take away anymore. I usually wear a scarf around my nose and mouth in the wind.

I am thinking. . . of making a short road trip this week if the weather improves.

I am thankful... that I was able to connect with another new PH patient yesterday.

In the kitchen... the dishwasher is scrubbing the dishes with gusto

I am wearing... some slacks and a tee

I am creating... the January newsletter for our PH support group. I've changed the fonts a bit with this issue, and I like the new look.

I am planning... to have the newsletter ready to send to everyone by Friday.

I am reading... A Step from Heaven by An Na

I am praying... that my sister and her husband are safe on their vacation.

I am hearing... the incessant wind

One of my favorite things... my feather pillows. They were made by my mother from the down and feathers of her gray/white geese. Ever so often, I throw them in the dryer on "air" with three new tennis balls to fluff them. I like how the pillows conform to my head and neck. I have a difficult time sleeping with a foam pillow.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . a) dentist appointment Tuesday morning, b) conference call on Tuesday afternoon, c) knitting group Tuesday evening.

A quote worth sharing. . .

There are only two
ways to live your
life. . .one is as
though nothing
is a miracle, and
the other is as
though everything
is a miracle.
~ Albert Einstein ~

  1. That's a great tip for fluffing feather pillows. I like to sleep on two pillows. A firm one on the bottom and a soft one on top.

  2. We had 40-60 mph winds today, too. Tomorrow is supposed to warm up again, thank goodness. I have feather pillows that I got from my mom, who got them from her mom. We've both had them re-ticked, so I couldn't say for sure if the feathers are really original, but I choose to think so.

  3. winds scare me, but i love hearing them...
    have a lovely day.
