Looking out my window, the sun is shining and the sky is bright blue. It’s so bright I can barely tell that the Christmas lights on the shrub right outside my window are still on.
I am thinking about Advent, impatiently waiting for the weeks of patiently waiting. I love the irony. I hate when there are only three full weeks of Advent, it never seems like enough time to prepare. Even so, I’m going to have one of the boys bring down the Christmas tree and get it set up with the white lights.
I am thankful to be sitting in a house that’s clean and orderly. Benefit of having everyone home and unencumbered for the last five days.
I am creating Jesse Tree and O Antiphon ornaments large enough to hang on the Christmas tree each day of Advent. There will be glitter.
I am wearing grey leggings and a hot pink long-sleeve t-shirt. Birkies. Dressed to say in today.
I am reading Heroic Leadership: Best Practices from a 450-Year-Old Company That Changed the World and thinking about being a woman in the last decades of the 20th Century.
I am hoping still for a new placement. The quiet is deafening.
I am learning servant leadership. See book above.
In my kitchen I have some leftover Turkey. And a small amount of homemade noodles (lunch?) I deliberately tried to avoid leftovers – success! I’m planning to use the meat to make pot pie this week. And I’m also going to make soup tomorrow with bone broth made from the carcass. Also on the menu: Avocado Toast, lox and bagels, Turkey Mole Enchiladas.
