I am thinking...
about a dear relative of mine in the hospital in Michigan. Mr. Pete was determined to go and visit on Saturday because he had to teach Sunday school and cantor for mass on Sunday.  So even though Winter Storm Bella was coming directly at us as we headed north, we kept on our path.

Things were pretty clear for most of our journey and we even though that perhaps we might take a little side trip to see the Ransom Gillis House that has been featured on the television show, Rehab Addict.  But when we hit Detroit the storm limited our visibility and we decided to just keep heading north.

We got to the hospital in time to see our relative and spend a few hours.  Then it was back on the road. This trip usually takes us 4 hours. We left at 2:30 and didn't make it back home until almost 10:00, spending much of that time traveling at only 25 miles per hour. I wanted to pull over and find a hotel, but Mr. Pete persevered.

I am thankful...
we didn't end up in the ditch like about 20 of the cars we passed on our way!  We arrived home without incident.

In the kitchen...
Shepherd's Pie - I browned ground turkey, added salt, pepper, cinnamon, tomatoes, and mixed vegetables, and the topped with mashed sweet potatoes. It was delicious!

I am wearing...
Black pants and a pink sweater that I like because it has 3/4 length sleeves, but I wish it were longer.

I am reading...

I am pondering...
about the etiquette involved with co-habitating couples and couples who are co-parenting but aren't "a couple" and the holidays.  Where is Emily Post when you need her?

I am going...
From the Learning Rooms...

A quote to share...

It had never before occurred to him that the body of a woman of fifty, blow up to monstrous dimensions by childbearing, then hardened, roughened by work till it was coarse in the grain like an over-ripe turnip, could be beautiful. But it was so, and after all, he thought why not? The solid, contourless body, like a block of granite, and the rasping red skin, bore the same relationship to the body of a girl as the rose-hip to the rose. Why should the fruit be held inferior to the flower?

1984, by George Orwell
