Good: a basket of gourds
Good: knitting in the October sun with a chilly breeze to cool off my cheeks
Good: an Autumn fire
Bad: plantar fasciitis. I think it's worse from standing at the sink doing dishes. I need to do something about all these dishes. The dishwasher part will not be shipped until mid-November, so I'm in this for the long haul. I need to simplify meals based on pot and pan usage.
Good: clean sheets. Because I love them so much, I have them at least once a week. I'm kind of obsessed about them.
Good: International Coffee Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer (I'm a total coffee snob, but this stuff is good)
Bad: a sore tailbone -- I really think it is arthritis, but I'm not sure what to do. Many of my joints are feeling achy right now and I guess it's the cold weather. I think that's a sign you're getting old when your joints react to weather. :-( Between the plantar fasciitis and the sore tailbone, I can neither sit nor stand comfortably. (Will you come to my pity party?)
Good: PW Spaghetti with Artichokes and Tomatoes. Even better leftover for lunch. Yum!
Good: Baking bread and delivering loaves (and being rewarded with scripture)
"Give to the hungry some of your bread, and to the naked some of your clothing. Whatever you have left over, give away as alms; and do not begrudge the alms you give." Tobit 4:16
Bad: a doggy that drinks from the toilet (yuck!). Does anyone know why a doggy would pass by a fresh bowl of water to drink toilet water? Hmmm. Don't answer that.
Good: McDonald's Happy Meals when they have Halloween buckets. I can't resist.
Good: Caramel Puff Corn for St. Isaac Jogues feast day. We still have some left. Yum!
Bad: political phone calls. Does anyone answer these? And if you do, do you listen? It seems it would be a much better use of funds to set up a food line for the needy and hand out cards with free meals.
Good: My Cousin Vinny -- our weekend flick; never get tired of it.
Good: many requests for rosaries
Good: Friday morning Mass followed by a Panera Cobblestone (more Yum!) and coffee.
That's the good and the bad this happy October Friday. I hope that you have all good for the weekend.
