For Today - Wednesday - November 2, 2011

Outside My Window. . .it is dark; there are freshly planted white pansies; a baby calf is bawling, desperately missing his mama.

I Am Thinking. . .that I need to get up and start making pear sauce. I'll use the method found here.

I Am Grateful. . . that I've run into my daughter twice in two days - all very serendipitous. She always brightens my day.

In The Kitchen . . . is a 5 gallon bucket of pears given to us. . . that's why I need to get busy making pear sauce and maybe a pear pie.

I Am Going. . .to upset the cat when I move her from my denim jacket, which is on the bed. She looks so cute and picturesque. If it were daylight in here, I'd be taking pix of her. . . all so cozy and snug on the denim jacket w/black collar. In spite of that she must move or I'll be wearing that jacket all covered w/fur!

I Am Reading . . .everything by Dr. Caroline Leaf about how the brain works and affects (effects?) our health. Fascinating stuff.

I Am Hoping . . .that my youngest son has a successful move. He and his wife are moving into a ginormous house in Norway. Moving is such a chore and they both have serious health issues.

I Am Hearing . . .the bawling calf. He is really missing his mama!

Around The House . . .of course those pears I've mentioned several times.

40 paperwhite bulbs, waiting for me to plant them.

A $1 bamboo steamer I bought at Goodwill

and gobs of other stuff.

I Am Wearing. . . an oversized man's blue shirt. Blue flannel pajama bottoms and bare feet. It's suppose to get chilly tonight and I want to go barefooted one more time before socks/shoes are necessary!

I Am Thinking. . . that I wish I'd been blogging more. I've been very negligent indeed.

I Am Wondering . . . if my van will need any serious repairs. The "check engine" light keeps coming on so we're taking it to our favorite mechanic in the morning.

One Of My Favorite Things. . . the sound of silence! Not all the time, of course; there is a time for everything. But sometimes at the end of the day it is nice to enjoy the quietness.

Something You May Not Know About Me. . . I wear jeggings! Yep - in my 60s and wearing jeggings!

About Today's Photo. . . it speaks for itself!
