Looking out my window . . .the sky is overcast, but the sun is trying to break through and it's going to be a warm day. Garbage cans line our street waiting for the trucks to empty them.
I am thinking . . . how restorative a good night's sleep can be. Last night, I slept through for the first time in a week! The hospital wasn't conducive to good sleep, and since I've been home, sleep has been elusive. Hoping this is the start of getting back to normal.
I am thankful . . . for my friends who have been providing us with delicious meals. I'm very limited on what I can eat, but it is so good to know that Dan is provided for and when family stopped by yesterday, there was plenty to share.
One of my favorite things . . . I found this snapshot in one of my albums. It's of my mother and grandmother. Mom had written the year on the back -- 1958, which is the year I was born. They are standing at the sink in the kitchen of Grandma and PopPop's house in Lakewood, New Jersey. I remember that house so well. Always filled with aunts and uncles and cousins. It was such a tiny house, but we all squeezed in. I framed the picture and it is hanging by my kitchen sink.
I am creating . . . not a whole lot. Prior to surgery, I was on a roll, doing a Spring cleaning project with my writer's group. I'm a little foggy still to be going through papers, so it will have to wait for now.
I am watching/listening to . . . country radio at the moment. Over the weekend, Dan and I watched The Dutchess with Kiera Knightley. Saturday afternoon I watched Fort Apache with John Wayne and Glen Ford.
I am hoping . . . Spring will soon be here to stay.
I am learning . . . that it takes longer to heal as you get older. I'm not very patient with it.
In my kitchen . . . a full refrigerator that needs to be organized.
