Taken the other day.
I'm Listening To... the quiet. Only the hum of the computer and the thump of the dryer. It's nice for the moment.
What I'm Reading... I started reading Made This Way by Trent Horn and Leila Miller, biting off a chunk each day. They start off by explaining that each subject is viewed from both Church Law and Natural Law. While I understand that viewpoint, it is so frustrating because how do you approach the person who only observes the Law of Opinion and seems to not get Natural Law.
(This frustration only came up because of a recent Facebook comment. I know, I know... I commented on someone's political post, something I usually refrain from, using natural law and this person and subsequent persons just did not get it at all.)
School News... The younger three have a program to put on for veterans today so we'll get to see that. Grade cards came out and I was happy all around, though one child could put in more effort.
So glad the school takes photos and shares them. Miss L is so excited for the microscopes.
Health News... I think another virus is trying to take hold. Nothing too bad, but enough to mess with Mr. A's blood sugars, to give another a sore throat, and to add crankiness all around.
What I'm Woodburning... I'm still working on commissions, but also have Christmas and smaller items I burn in-between or when I need a break in order to stock up for two November shows. Just a little of what I'm working on (not the best pictures):
~ 7 in H x 5 in W sign for All Hallows Eve
~1.5 inch magnet
Christmas Ornaments - about 3 inch diameter on Aspen (such a pretty wood).
What's Cooking... I am cooking meatloaf tonight. Yum. Tis the season for comfort dinners.
The Liturgical Year... Continuing to pray for the dead (as we do daily anyway). Looking ahead to St. Martin's. I have some warm socks for the kids (St. Martin cut his cloak in two in order to give half to the beggar so me giving something "warm" has become a tradition). It's a school night so maybe we'll just be cozy by the fire with a simple snack and story.
Today... It's a cleaning day, but I plan on doing a little woodburning plus voting of course.
This Week... I still need to plant those bulbs! Rain came in and cancelled last week's plans. Hopefully tomorrow we can finish up the storage unit so we don't have to pay another month. Otherwise, it's a quiet week.
- For veterans...
- For those struggling with diabetes...
