Outside my window...


I am thinking...
about my Aunt Dorothy who turned 95 last week, and found the time to write me a beautiful thank you note for the flowers I sent. She has lovely handwriting!

I am thankful...
for all the kindness that she has shown me during my lifetime and I hope that I can pay that forward with as much grace and gentle good humor she has shown.

In the kitchen...
My special seasoning for pork chops- the secret is the cinnamon.

I am wearing...
A gray skort and black T-shirt.

I am reading...

I am going...
  • to walk or work out every day but Thursday and include some pelvic floor strengthening exercises. I started these last week, and along with some cranberry pills I bought at Walgreens, I am noticing an improvement in my symptoms. 
  • move my spring cleaning to the basement.

A quote to share...
Gentle-Jesus-meek-and mild has probably made more apostates than any other single phrase of the language.  And what a phrase! About as adequate as calling a man-eating tiger, "poor pussy"

Dorothy Sayer from The Letters of Dorothy Sayer
