Outside My Window…it is a dark summer night. The cicadas are chirping. The birds are quiet. No children are playing as it is way past their bedtime.
I am thinking…about Tudor England and Henry VIII’s divorce. Why? Because I have a research paper due next week and that is my topic of choice.
I am thankful for…my hubster. He is a thoughtful and sensitive man. Truly God’s gift to me. I love him very much.
From the kitchen…nothing special for today. Though I did enjoy spaghetti and clams for lunch and fresh bran muffin bread at dinner.
I am wearing…a pale celery green robe and my blue polka dot pjs. LOL!
I am creating…ahhhhh…I wish I were creating! Therein lies my rub. Until I finish this stinkin’ degree, I’ve little time for the things I really want to do like learning blackwork stitching and exploring Coptic needlework in the hopes of recreating something beautiful for the church.
I am going…to get a little glass of milk and snack soon. Writing makes me hungry. Heck, everything makes me hungry!
I am reading…Ireland by Frank Delaney. It is one of the books we’ll be reading for the Irish Lit class I am taking in the fall. If you’ve not read it, you must! It is excellent! It is all about a storyteller in the 1950’s.
I am hoping…I get to work on the memoirs with Father Seraphim tomorrow. I pray that God is merciful to him and that he will be feeling well enough to do so.
I am hearing…the swish of the dishwasher. The hum of electricity. The click of keys on the keyboard.
Around the house…things are quiet. The hubster is sleeping. I plan on doing a little more on the research paper.
One of my favorite things…is the sound of summer cicadas on a hot summer afternoon. It is a childhood memory.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: call a gardener to give me an estimate to refurbish the front flower bed. It is an absolute disaster and I am quite perturbed with myself that I let it get away from me so badly.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
