monday notebook


Outside my window … 
the sun is shining (for now), dogwood and iris are in bloom, winds are gusty, and the lawn is covered with whirlybirds from the leafing maple trees
I am thinking … 
that I will grow my hair long enough to donate to Locks of Love
I am thankful for … 
the new RevGalBlogPals facebook page! I've already received a helpful response to a query I posted (thanks, Martha!); spending time with friends over the weekend that was rejuvenating
I am hoping … 
for a productive week with no surprises
On my mind … 
contemplating how best to be heard as one voice in the cacophony of chaos that passes for public discourse
Noticing that …
we are overloaded with an assortment of condiments in our refrigerator
A few plans for the week …
finishing up the current cross stitch project: an anniversary gift for Kenneth and Trisha (their first!); delivering said project, along with the two others, to their intended recipients when we see them all this weekend at Ft. Benning; cheering on Kenneth as he competes in the army-wide Best Ranger competition beginning Friday
From the kitchen … 
packing a cooler of healthy food for our roadtrip
Around the house … 
cleaning the kitchen and clearing off the dining table so that I can change tablecloths; putting away the Christmas tree and boxes (it's said, isn't it?)
One of my favorite things … 
the luxury of Sunday afternoons when I don't succumb to a nap
A picture I am sharing …
blooming in our yard this morning...

OH Irises! Beautiful.

And I too am wondering how we can become one voice - I subscribe to MoveOn but now there are three or four progressive political email voices of activism - and they compete for my attention but also focus on different issues...really need to join as one BIG voice - I simply can't believe that most people in this country support some of these awful agendas - like cutting support to low and middle income families, reducing aid for the sake of cutting the deficit, and allowing tax breaks for the wealthy. Really? people support this? really? or worse, are we all so incredibly stupid that we do't learn or understand?

I am envious of the blooming iris in your yard. Spring hasn't even begun here, yet. Sigh! Perhaps, in another month.

Ooh I like the idea of Locks for Love. How long does it have to be? I'll need to research that. It would be nice to have a hair goal that doesn't involve CHOP IT ALL OFF NOW!
