My new laptop arrived yesterday afternoon and WonderSecketry and I had a ball unpacking it and oohing and aahing over all its widgets.
I can't claim it's completely tame to hand, yet...but it gives me access to much if not to everything!
I am interspersing bouts of office-cleanup with bouts of Jeremy Taylor -- preparation for a retreat I'm leading in 3 weeks or so.
Otherwise, it's all quite...peaceful...this morning. Most unusual.
Reading Wilken on Early Christian Thought and drawing much sustenance from his work...a great help last week with the Ascension lections and the references to authority, i.e., "who you gonna believe?"
It is warm and summery ... and my tulips have all stood up again, WHEW! after the late snowfall -- they are about to bloom any day now. Lilacs are leafing out around my bedroom window. Peony shoots are up in the church garden. Chives and Chervil showing in what passes for a herb-bed at my house. I have hopes of getting home tonight in time to do some thoughtful raking of "where my grass was when I had grass."
So nice to have broad daylight at 6:30 in the a.m.!
