It is chilly and gray outside this morning. The Scientist is off Habitating, Amie is downstairs guarding the front door (actually, she's asleep, but she is at her post), and I am enjoying the afterglow (afterbuzz?) of having gone and worked out pretty hard this morning, followed by a great big mocha latte from a cheerful little locally-owned coffee house down the road. I can smell the aroma of tonight's crockpot Mexican turkey thighs, and life is good.
Of course I need to get to work. I have FIVE testing reports to write today. There is a case worker who is expecting ALL of them on Monday. However, these are simple reports (unlike some) and if I nail my bottom to the chair, and turn off the wi-fi, I can knock out each one in about an hour.
Are you familiar with Freecycle? It is a network of community groups that connect people who want to get rid of useful stuff they no longer need, with people who can use it. I just joined our local group this week. Later on today, a young woman with a one-year-old son is coming to pick up a baby gate that we used for a few months when we brought Amie home (she and Zorra were not very pleased to meet each other, and we had to keep them separated for a while). It's been sitting in my closet for two years, so I'm glad to get it out of here. So anyway, I guess I'll hang out, write, and wait for her to call. I miss the Scientist, but I'm grateful for the peace and quiet of my home today.
What are you up to?
