Outside My Window. . . winter's grasp tightens once more. Last night a violent wind brought in another storm, and this morning everything is covered with 5 inches of heavy, wet snow. The wind is still howling and will make travel treacherous today.
I am thinking. . . this latest storm is inconvenient, but it is packed with wonderful and much needed moisture. I will try not to grumble about shoveling it off of the walks and drive.
I am thankful... that I am no longer teaching. A friend stopped by for a visit yesterday, and hearing of the changes and struggles at my former school made me very thankful that I do not have to deal with the ever extending schedule and the stress of state testing. Leaving education was difficult for me, but now I am certain that if I had stayed, my health would be much worse: the stress alone would have been too much.
In the kitchen... breakfast is delayed. I have lab work this morning so breakfast will have to wait.
I am wearing... my typical casual outfit.
I am creating... a gray wool, cropped cardigan. I am making slow progress.
I am planning... a support group meeting on Saturday.
I am reading... nothing at the moment. I haven't had time to go to the library.
I am praying... the weather cooperates so the support group members will have good roads for Saturday's meeting.
I am hearing... the sputter of coffee maker as the last bit of water is pumped into the filter.
One of my favorite things... frosted sugar cookies. My friend Deb brings a half dozen of these treats when she visits. They are always yummy!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . a) lab work, b) doctor's appointment, c) annual yard sale with a group of friends.
A photo worth sharing. . .
