Outside my window…a humid, dew-drenched morning, our cow and heifer grazing, their cowbells gently clanging as they eat.
I am thinking…about the beautiful Corpus Christi Mass at the Fathers of Mercy yesterday and Saturday's ordination to the temporary diaconate of Br. (now Deacon) Joseph Aytona, CPM. I lost count of how many priests were present, but it was delightful to see so many. Yesterday's Mass was a Novus Ordo in Latin. Also thinking about our summer school plans. A very light schedule, but I do need to put it on a schedule rather than "winging it" as I have been doing for the last week. It is too easy to put off if I don't put it on paper.
I am thankful for…SLEEP! I actually had a good 8 hours last night after three nights of dreadful insomnia with less than 3 decent hours a night. I was beginning to feel really badly--shaky and light-headed--by yesterday afternoon. And for the prayers of my friends for this pregnancy...
From the kitchen...Muffins and vanilla yogurt.
I am creating…still on the wool soaker. I sort of put aside the knitting for the last week or two. I have been too busy to sit and knit much.
I am reading… Last night it was Countryside Magazine. I do enjoy it!
I am hoping…for no more sleepless nights until after Gemma's birth!
I am hearing…birds. And Nuala's cowbell as she chews.
A few plans for the rest of the week…summer school plans to be put to paper, a couple of meals put in the freezer, order my cloth diapers. I have an appointment with the OB today...
The children are...asleep, with the exception of Early Bird Gabriel. He is quietly playing on the sofa.
A Picture Thought: A goofy shot of Nuala. She is such a sweetie...I couldn't have picked a better cow temperament-wise!
