The Gingerbread Rector...

...or, "Run, run, as fast as you can..."

~~ Happy cleaning session with Daughter Unit last night, tea and laughter, and a gratifying BULK of stuff went OUT either for garbage or rummage or recyclage (I don't care, truly). We tackled sheet-music, candles, gardening information, and the first consignment of (shudder) loose photographs.

~~ Then some focused TV watching -- a CBC documentary on "Life and Death in Kandahar" i.e. the military hospital and the people who work there and are treated there. I had hopes of seeing the people we know and love who are serving there, then realized of course this film was put together before their rotation began, but now by gosh I have "visuals" in my mind to supply the backdrop when we hear from them.

~~ and so, eventually to bed.

~~ awakened this morning by cat seeking further help with her coiffure. "Well I swan" as grandma would have said. Taffeta had done Good Work on the worst of her tangles yesterday while I was at work, and there were about three places that needed the scissors, so while I snipped at her she nibbled my wrist in an encouraging way. I think another couple of mornings and she should be tangle-free...not very "sightly," mind you, but a whole lot more comfortable.

~~ The rest of today: Holy Communion at 10, meeting with one of my Wardens thereafter, coffee with parishioners at 1:30, hospital visit at 3, wedding couple at 5:30, and an award ceremony featuring #1 Son at 7.
