Turtlemom in the great SE of the USA
The clock says:
tick – tick – tick – tick
The weather outside is:
dreary – snow is melting
I am remembering:
my little Momma, how much I loved her; and how much I miss her. She loved weather like this
I am going:
I am reading:
case records – difficult to decipher handwriting
I am hoping:
for the healing of my dear Ol’ Curmudgeon’s heart
On my mind:
Remembrance of death – and the nature of repentance
Magnus (our beautiful black cat) is losing ground daily – don’t believe he will be with us by the end of the year
Pondering these words:
” …A man whose very life is a lie is one who is licentious and pretends to be temperate…” from Dorotheos of Gaza Discourses
From the kitchen:
Lucious French bread made by the Ol’ Curmudgeon
Around the house:
cleaning time – how to do it and still get cases done?
One of my favorite things:
Watching Emmy sleep at my feet on her new bed
From my picture journal:
St. Euphrosynos, the Cook, hangs over the door of the kitchen where we can ask his intercessions while we are making meals.
I am remembering:
nothing much – trying to live in the present rather than the past
Little scraps from my desk:
an old receipt from the grocery showing we purchased the makings for Gazpacho – YUM!
the Ol’ Curmudgeon continues to be gainfully employed despite all the recession/depression – for which we praise God and give Glory to Him for All Things
I am wearing:
My usual: night-gown and long, warm, fuzzy, dark-green robe and Crocs. Need to get some socks on, though
What’s in the reading basket:
Michael Newton, “Serial Slaughter: What’s Behind America’s Murder Epidemic?” The guy doesn’t quite understand prenatal development and nutrition, yet tries to appear as an authority. This puts his entire thesis in question.
Worthy to watch:
The O’Reilly Factor on FoxNews at 8:00pm Eastern time
Music to my ears:
Christmas music compiled from numerous sources. I’ve decided that no one can write Christmas carols as well as the British – intrigued with John Rutter’s compositions.
Steps towards simplicity:
clearing off the dining room table; have cleaned out my “nest” corner.
My idea corner:
A blackberry with a larger keyboard and easy-to-synchronize-to-PC database. Yeah. That’s what I want.
Time to get pics together and post Himself’s Gazpacho recipe on his blog
A home comfort:
Electric lap blanket. Mine is about 10 years old, now, and I probably should toss it out and get a new one, but I just love it in cold weather.
Hope the little bushes planted in the fall survive the cold!
Especially for James (stage 4 lymphoma)

Parting words to the Society:
Back to work!
