For Today, November 17, 2008...
Outside My Window... it's sunny and cold. The garden is still sadly unattended. It needs to be tidied up for the winter.
I am thinking... about my meetings with Michaels' math teacher and learning enrichment center staff tomorrow.
I am thankful for... a wonderful birthday dinner out at Terroni last night, to celebrate Z and A's birthdays this week.
From the kitchen... I've got a bowl of great northern beans soaking for my first attempt at homemade baked beans. There's also an organic chicken ready to go into the oven for dinner tonight.
I am wearing... lack trousers, black shell, red embroidered blouse, black socks.
I am creating... a sweater in brown heather, that I started last spring. I have half a sleeve and the front/neckline finishing left to do.
I am going...to prep my chicken and make some bread stuffing.
I am reading... The Origin of Species by Nino Ricci.
I am hoping... that I have the courage to continue on my Couch-to-5k plan as the weather gets colder.
I am hearing... Vivaldi's Gloria, which I will have the opportunity to sing with the Aradia Ensemble at their Christmas concert.
Around the house... the laundry seems to be overtaking me. I need to get back on my load-a-day schedule.
One of my favorite things... is a hot bath with epsom salts and a good book.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Tomorrow is the first of our parish's advent bible studies on Luke. I also have meetings at Michael's school in the afternoon. Wednesday is Alex and Z's actual birthday...must bake something. Thurday is a free concert by the Ottawa Bach Choir at noon at Massey Hall. On Sunday, Father Larry is taking the choir out for lunch after mass.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
