Day Book entry for Monday:
Outside my window: The temperatures are icy and rain is falling down into the ponds and bay. It's dark outside and dinnertime for most.
I am hearing: Wind coursing through the pine and cedars, rain falling in the ponds. Gentle little sounds from a sleeping cat.
I am wearing: An over sized soft Rutgers University sweatshirt.
It is soft, warm and cozy on a cold winter day. Also wearing my Indian moccasins.
I am thankful for: Good central heating that keeps the house evenly warm and cozy on the coldest of days.
I am reading: 44 Charles Street, by Danielle Steele for the second time.
A magical transformation takes place in Danielle Steel’s luminous new novel: strangers become roommates, roommates become friends, and friends become a family in a turn-of-the-century house in Manhattan’s West Village.
From the kitchen: Chili made with left over roast beef, served over smashed up baked potatoes.
In the learning rooms: I am studying Proverbs.
I am working on: getting the house organized. It is slow going as I am not able to do much really, but things are coming along nicely.
I am hoping: For people to really love one another as they should.
I am creating: A neatly organized and inviting home. It is always my goal.
Around the house: The cat is nestled in his chair dreaming quietly, I am at my computer updating and writing.
Plans for the rest of the week: Grocery shopping and a trip to Home Goods for a lamp and to look around.
