Today I am...
Feeling... enthused about new plans for going to bed earlier. I'm enlisting Lou; he's supposed to tell me to get off my computer at 10:15. When I do that, I usually play piano till eleven or a quarter past, and then I'm in bed by 11:30 instead of staying up till midnight, which is what happens when I keep working on my computer much past ten. That's right when my second wind kicks in.
Seeing... a touch of blue on the bayward horizon, which is where all the weather comes from. It's been a rather gray morning.
Smelling... the last dissipating aroma of a big cup of Italian coffee with cream.
Tasting... Raisin Nut Bran for breakfast—so expensive that I rarely buy it, but so much better on every level than standard Raisin Bran. And coffee, of course. Also, my next door neighbor gave me fresh-picked local strawberries, and fresh-picked local strawberries are one of my favorite things in the whole. wide. world.
Listening... to the silence that means the dryer has stopped. I need to go get the laundry changed over.
Grateful for... a free afternoon to spend with my family. Owing to everyone getting sick and the hockey game, I haven't seen the niece and nephew in three weeks. Aunty needs a kiddo fix.
Reading... besides Harry Potter... Lud in the Mist by Hope Mirrlees. It's longer than I expected it to be, which is the difficulty with Kindle books—you can't predict that just by looking. But it's enjoyable old fantasy.
Loving... my friend Janelle, whose birthday I'm celebrating this evening.
Hoping... the little dog that dodged in front of my car yesterday near the grocery found its way back to its family.
