Rainy autumn day...
In my thinking, there is nothing as melancholic as a rainy autumn day and that is not a bad thing at all. For it makes perfect soup making bread baking hot coffee reading weather.
I have a whole chicken roasting in the oven along with an onion and once the timer buzzes... they will jump into the stockpot with the juices and without the white chicken meat.
Can you believe it has been a week since my eye surgery? While I am way, way behind on yard and garden work, blog posts, e-mails (some weeks behind), and books I wanted to read... I have been watching some DVDs and listening to the itty bitty iPod.
However, my eyes are now focusing and my energy is as good as it ever is. Considering last week this time I couldn't SEE out my left eye, that is a very good thing. (Clarification: The laser is so bright it causes a temporary partial blindness.)
So... I'm trying not to be hard on myself because I still haven't written a post for Saturday or Sunday, or finished the Kindle reading post, or started those others spinning in my head.
I write at Mom Heart along side ladies who are professionals... speakers, writers, bloggers, etc... and sometimes I feel overwhelmed at all they accomplish. I was sharing with a special friend how the enemy of our souls can make me feel quite inadequate among such talent.
Instead, the One Who Created Me also assures me to do the best I can and that is all He asks. Although I must admit, I do get inspired by those ladies, especially to become more organized about my writing. :)
Other than getting better, where have I been spending my time this week?
NOTE: I love getting your e-mails, even if I can't respond quickly and sometimes they even get lost when there were a lot of them at once.
