Today...I got up early to attend the first service at church so I could get home to watch the Seahawks (Seattle football) play their playoff game in Atlanta. But when I got home, the fine weather called my name. I first had to take the dog out for a walk. She must not be feeling well and I practically had to drag her around the block. Poor thing.
Yesterday...I had one of those rare "do nothing" days, which doesn't mean I did nothing, but I did what I wanted which meant a lot of reading and blogging.
What I'm reading:
- 52 Little Lessons from It's a Wonderful Life by Bob Welsh...I am attempting to read three lessons per day.
- Never Fall Down by Patricia McCormick...a fictional look at the Killings Fields of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. Powerful and depressing, but very readable.
- Dreamers of the Day by Mary Doria Russell...this is my first book by this author but it won't be my last. Wow. This book has it all---a bit of romance, mystery, and history. Set in Cairo in 1921 around the time of the Cairo Peace Conference that divided up the Middle East.
- Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl...a lighthearted Regency romance/romp with a happy-ending.
Scripture lesson: Philippians 2:15, 16 "Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life."
Around the house: we delivered our daughter back to college last Sunday. The house always seems so quiet and empty when she leaves. *Sigh.
From the kitchen: I didn't bake it, but I bought a loaf of pumpkin/chocolate chip bread at the local bakery. Delicious.
