Willy Nilly Wednesday
It's been a long day today. Did quite a bit of cleaning and such around the homestead. Transplanted some flowers. Had a sponsling over for the afternoon for some step work. Did a load of laundry and changed my bed linens. Went on a 12 Step call. Roasted a turkey breast. Made soup stock afterwards with the bones and skin and juice from the turkey. Tomorrow I will make a turkey noodle soup with the fat homemade egg noodles in it. Busy busy.
I have twisted that darn knee again. I'm back on the naproxen and wearing a brace sometimes and trying to keep it up as much as possible. It's quite bothersome this evening.
We are going to attend a Festival of Faiths and Cultures on Saturday at the Lady of the Snows Shrine. I am really looking forward to it...a big event, with an international food court, crafts and gifts from around the world, stage performances of folk dances... I can't wait.
Our next class starts this coming Monday as well...a class on Deep Ecology. THAT should be interesting.
My life just never seems to slow down much. But soon winter will come and then things will grind to a halt. I love the winter season..a time to renew and rest and change gears. I am blessed to have the life that I have, and eternally grateful.
I am grateful for all the gifts around me, and grateful that my bed beckons. Grateful to be sober. Grateful to have so much love in my life...somedays it just overwhelms me.
Sleep well, fellow travellers.
