Outside my window... it's sunny but COLD. And quiet - it's too cold for the children at the school down the street to play outside, so no shouts and laughter today.
I am thinking... deeply about my life and my happiness. Specifically, about how to eliminate the stress that I can eliminate from my life.
I am thankful... for warm clothes, somewhere to live, plenty of food to eat, something interesting to do.
In the kitchen... my coffee maker is cooling down - I just turned it off. Salmon is thawing for dinner. Butter for making cookies is softening on the counter.
I am wearing... yoga pants, tshirt, wool socks, wool sweater - comfy clothes for a day off.
I am creating... knitted blocks for an afghan to give as a gift next Christmas, a scarf for the same reason, a shawl for myself... I always have quite a few things on the needles.
I am going... for a walk in a little while.
I am wondering... how the homeless people around Boston Common will keep warm tonight in the nasty cold weather.
I am reading... another romance novel from the library, on my Kindle. My break from law reading, although that's coming up soon, too.
I am hoping... I can stick to my resolution to get my weight under control this year. I'm so bad with resolutions...
I am looking forward to... starting my internship next Monday
I am learning... in a larger sense, how to practice law. In a smaller sense, to exercise more patience.
Around the house... Christmas decorations are still up - until the 6th, as always. The cat is sleeping on my bed, the sun is shining through the windows, and all is quiet.
I am pondering... my future. As usual.
A favorite quote for today... "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13.
One of my favorite things... is my knitting! (*Are* my knitting? I have so many projects...)
A few plans for the rest of the week: checkup with my doctor on Thursday, knit night with dear friends Thursday night, possibly a gathering with friends on Saturday.
A peek into my day... knitting, walking, napping, watching TV.
I love clouds. They just fascinate me.
