yet another quiz...
No too bad a day today, in terms of weather...not QUITE warm enough to get the car washed, but we're working toward it. A fair amount scratched off the to-do list already. Made a hospital visit last night on my way home...a parishioner about to move from subsidized housing into assisted living...another parishioner came in this morning and brought me a most gorgeous hand-knit scarf, just to say thank you.
I've done my prep for tonight's book-study meeting on Samuel Wells's Power & Passion. It seems to be nice and accessible and there are good discussion tools, starters, at the end of each chapter. I am pleased at what he says about power...and the "wrongness" of pretending we don't have any. Is there anything QUITE so satisfying as finding, in print, something one already has thought and said?
As soon as the knitters begin to arrive, I'll slide out and find some lunch. No secretary today, her little girl is still under the weather.
Went to the kitchen to cook breakfast this morning and got all set up with my Special Cereal Pot, water, salt, cranberries, cinnamon...and then found I was out of oatmeal. Drat. So I cooked rice instead. Perfectly acceptable.
My "Fabric Committee" (i.e., that's the Building Committee, in other dialects) has had a Come-to-Jesus meeting with the supervisor of our cleaning service this morning. They seem well satisfied with the results... Back to the agenda for the Corporation meeting, which has to include some consideration of building issues.
And I can see the top of my desk! It's amazing!
