Outside my window... Above are bright blue skies; below are blowing banks of white flower petals from the orchard across the road
I am thinking...that our town must have a bull’s-eye hanging over it; we have had more than our share of trauma and tragedy lately- the infamous imprisonment & torture of a teenage boy, the death of another service man- the eighth soldier in less than seven years- followed 2 weeks later by the murder of Sgt Dunakin & his fellow officers, and now there is a missing 8-year old girl, last seen Friday night.
I am thankful... that Chris is back to regular hours at work (for the time being) & still has work to do at the ranch for KJ- extra is always good
From the kitchen...your guess is as good as mine; I made a trip to Costco last night, so there are plenty of supplies, just little inspiration
I am wearing...my cool weather work uniform- grey slacks, black knit top, black loafers, & long grey/green cardigan
I am reading... Lumby Bounty by Gail Fraser, The Marquis’s Secret by George MacDonald, & Miss Silver Comes to Stay by Patricia Wentworth
I am hoping...that the authorities find the missing girl soon- alive and unharmed.
I am creating...project samples for a knitting class I’ve been asked to teach- I sure hope they know what they’re getting into
I am hearing...Classical music on the radio, and a crop dusters buzzing the fields up the road
Around the house...we are all suffering from spring allergies- even the cats are sneezing; new plants are starting to gather on the potting bench again, awaiting their bed assignments; I finally have a new shower faucet- the old one has been dripping for over a year- & my beloved Pfaff sewing machine made it back from the repair shop after a month.
One of my favorite things... a leisurely walk at twilight with Chris- last night we saw several owls
A few plans for the rest of the week...start addressing graduation invites and announcements- only 9 weeks left!; haircut on Wednesday- this warmer weather makes it grow twice as fast; Saturday, I’ll have to work in the morning, then a group of us is off to visit a new yarn shop in Modesto
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
one of many memorials along the highway on Friday- Chris took this driving into work just before the processions started.
