Sept. 12, 2011.
Outside my window...a warm, sunny day. Nice.
I am thinking...yesterday was the anniversary of the terror attacks in the U.S. It was a loss of innocence, or at least,naïveté. Now we all know these things can happen anywhere. So many lives changed forever; children growing up without dads. I know what that's like.
I am hoping...to find enough continuing education hours to keep up my Oncology nursing certification. It made a big difference that I couldn't attend the annual conference this year.
I am thankful for...my youngest daughter. She has started her first year of Peace and Conflict Studies: Specialist in her second year at U of T. She has met some people at a frosh event.
I am wearing...navy capris and a print top.
From the kitchen...roast chicken with pasta, feta and arugala salad. Ready made from the store. It's a lazy day.
I am hearing...inane teenage boy conversations on the train.
I am reading...The Rose House by Tina Ann Forkner.
Around the house...Our dog has been sick and has eye ointment for a weepy eye. Part of our front lawn needed to be seeded due to grubs. Our van has been sold. My husband is enjoying his work. My mom is not able to sleep well with her CPAP machine. A little bird flew into our window and then stood on the deck, stunned, for a few hours.
One of my favourite things...finding new recipes. I'm planning the menu for our fall dinner party next month.
Some plans for the week...work four nights. Luncheon at church on Sunday. A friend will be visiting from out of town.
