For Today, November 3, 2008…
Outside My Window

… the naked maple tree is letting in light desperately needed as we enter the dark season.

I am thinking

… about the first of a series of lectures I attended this morning on the life of Teresa of Avila.  

I am thankful for

… cool nights and mild days.

From the kitchen.

.. I’m roasting two chickens today to make a number of meals for the upcoming week.

I am wearing

… jeans, pale green sweater with green and white striped blouse, black socks.

I am creating

… some christmas gifts that must remain a secret for the time being!

I am going

…to take Wilson for a long walk this afternoon.

I am reading

…  The Life of St. Teresa of Avila By Herself.

I am hoping

… that Alex can manage his workload from school this week after being away at provincial cross-country finals.

I am hearing

… far too much about the US election.

Around the house

… I need to do an overall tidy and clean, and get the winter scarves and hats sorted and stashed.

One of my favorite things.

.. these days is listening to BBC podcasts while walking the dog.  

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week

: I have a massage booked on Wednesday, parent-teacher interviews on Thursday, and I’d like to get to adoration at Blessed Trinity on Friday.

Here is picture thought I am sharing
