Reading A Severe Mercy, and also planning to read some G.K. Chesterton and the Bible later today with my husband.
Writing this post in bed. Yesterday was gorgeous and sunny but today is rainy, and I love the coziness of being inside, warm and comfortable, while it's raining outside.
Listening to sputtering rain.
Thinking about the next year ahead of us. Since we've been married, we haven't exactly had the kind of life we'd planned. And it looks like it will continue that way for a while (because the Army takes FOREVER to get things done) but I'm working hard to make peace with this.
Smelling coffee. We ran out of black tea (some more is on the way--we're a little bit snobby about tea and so we order it online) and green tea just didn't seem sufficient today. I haven't had coffee in a few months (I informally gave it up for health reasons) and it tastes divine.
Wishing it wasn't so challenging to get together with college friends. My closest friends are completely spread out across the country--San Francisco, Maine, Houston, Upstate New York. And we're here in Alabama, close to....nothing and nobody. At least we have email and texting and phone calls!
Hoping for high health and spirits this week!
Wearing comfy clothes.
Drinking coffee with cream. Such a treat.
Loving all of the goodies my husband brought back from Sam's Club on his way home from his trip last week. Fresh salmon, berries, a leg of lamb for me to roast, a whole pineapple, raw nuts. Yum. He knows me too well.
Wanting a new vacuum cleaner. Isn't it funny how once you're married you get excited about things like that? My parents have a good one they want to give us, but it's in New York and we'd have to wait until we leave here to get it. So we're trying to decide what to do. Hmm.
Needing to soak up husband time. Without going into detail, it's been a rocky road these last 5 or 6 months. Though I haven't written about this on my blog, except perhaps vaguely, my husband and I have been apart for much of this time (it's no fun when the Army gives your soldier "unaccompanied orders") and we've experienced so many unexpected twists and turns. When you're in the Army your life is not your own, and it felt like chaos for a little while. But things have normalized and although we still have a lot of waiting and patience-testing to get through, my husband is here with me and I plan to not let him out of my sight for a very long time.
Feeling grateful. For my husband, for the chance to make this next year a really wonderful one, and, despite all of my grousing, for the Army too. I have to remember that in spite of its inefficiencies and defects and crazy ways of doing things, the Army has taken care of us.
Clicking the sequel to The Business of Being Born--More Business of Being Born! We haven't watched it yet but plan to soon.
I hope you have a blessed and wonderful Sunday.
