Brrrrrrrrrrr! It's cold in Colorado tonight! There was snow on the ground when I woke up this morning. My friend Sara from lovely California sent me five perfect avocados from her very own tree. It's guacamole for us tomorrow!
It's an adjustment for Bill, this cold. He just returned from Kenya. I had said earlier that he was going to Uganda. Turns out it was Kenya all along. Ooooops. He met with some amazing pastors in Nairobi. I'm glad he's home safe!
I have so much going on in my little brain that I have to read aloud to myself so I can REALLY consider what I'm reading. So, a little reading about the English language and then a dip into The House at Pooh Corner for a chaser! I'm also reading The Scent of Water by Elizabeth Goudge. Thank you, Frances!
I'm still knitting a sweater for Millie. I'm a smidge stumped and I'm waiting for my knitting light bulb to go on so I can knit on with confidence!
When I'm sitting on the sofa watching news, I look over at this big granny square and THINK about getting up and bringing it to my sitting spot. I'm not good at multi-tasking.
I ordered The Collected Works of Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen: The Complete Collection, and The Collected Works of Frances Hodgson Burnett for my Kindle (less than five dollars - BARGAIN!) Delicious reading added to the mile high stack! I think Kindles are very handy. I like real books better.
I decided I need a few things when I go shopping: a better bedside reading lamp, an electric pencil sharpener for my colored pencils, a humidifier, a haircut, a bigger paperback dictionary so I can mark it up, and different bird seed because the squirrels are making a huge mess with the black sunflower seeds! What do you need when you go shopping?
Even though it snowed, my peonies are pushing their way up! Hooray! Five more weeks until my summer starts, even if it's snowing now.
I'm very sad about all the bad weather in America right now. God bless the people who are suffering, the families who have lost loved ones, and the clean up crews. It's heartbreaking.
I wish you a calm day. Sometimes there is no tangible reason for us to feel peaceful and serene. That's the Comforter. He works miracles in the human heart.
