The Simple Woman’s Daybook–Feb. 21, 2011

(random prompts!)

Outside my window…it’s snowing. Sigh. It was raining for most of the day, and I was hoping it would stay that way. I don’t want more snow! I want spring!

I am thinking…I sort of wish we were doing the ablation this week, as scheduled, so I could cross it off my list. But now it’s not until May, because my heart rhythm is normal now (for the moment), so we have “more time.” It’s going to be at OSU, instead of NCH, because they do this sort of thing all the time w/ their heart transplants. There will be a few tests/procedures pre-ablation, but nothing major.

I am thankful for…a really good set of doctors. And higher PFTs! (Higher across the board today. “I rule!” )

From the kitchen…well since I’m going to be home this week, I’m now pondering cooking. I’m going to make Weight Watchers French Onion soup tomorrow, then PW meatballs, and probably some lemon pasta at some point this week to inspire spring. 🙂 (At least in my kitchen)

I am creating…I’ve resumed journal writing—I sort of skipped the whole month of January, which I don’t like to do.

I am reading…Over the weekend I read Unplanned; The Rule of St. Benedict, and I’m making my way through the Isabel Dalhousie series again (I just love, love these books). I also have the Sense and Sensibility comic book and A New Light on Tiffany about Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany girls (which was inspired by reading Clara and Mr. Tiffany—very, very good.)

I am hoping…for no more snow!

I am hearing…I’m watching Into Great Silence, and there’s not a lot of soundtrack. 🙂 Right now it’s sleds going down a hill. (If you haven’t watched this—great movie)

In the CD player…I’m going back and forth between Tangled and Dark Hope.

Around the house…if the heart behaves, cleaning. I’m hoping it will behave.

One of my favorite things…lunch with good friends; an Irish pub on a rainy day

For the rest of the week…hopefully 20s group at St. Pat’s on Thursday; choir on Wednesday. All of this is, of course, dependent on heart BEHAVING, because when it doesn’t, I just lay on my couch and watch movies.

To live the liturgy…confession yesterday; Mass, Magnificat, LOH as much as possible. Rosary. Preparing for Lent. (Which is SOON.)
