It’s Tuesday, and my work week is just starting. While I love teaching, it is work, and by the nature of the activity, it is not always enjoyable. So this week, I only have four days of work, and that sounds really great.
The sun is out after an overnight rain, and the air is cooler, more fall-like today. I think I’ll drive around with my windows open and let everyone listen to my book on CD with me. I love autumn.
My book on CD is another Rita Mae Brown book (Catch as Cat Can), and while the snippets of politics needle me a bit, I really love the mysteries themselves. I also love that they’re set near my parents’ house in VA, and most of all, I love the talking animals, especially Pewter, the “rotund kitty” that is sometimes described as a “cannonball.”
My kitties screamed for wet food, but in a new position of resolve, I decided to only give them such on Saturdays. I’m proud of myself for resisting.
Most of all, I am glad that in the midst of some trying and tiring times, I have been blessed with the deepest peace of my life. I am content with where I am (at least in most minutes), and I feel confident that God has got in all under control, even though life at this moment is completely beyond me.
What’s good about your life today?
