So today, while Dave is out in the suburbs preaching, I am reading a book ... one I could not wait to get my hands on.
New York Times bestselling author, Jan Karon, has (finally) written another Mitford novel. I love this series and have read it several times.
A day of resting and drinking tea.
We should all rest when we feel crummy. I am glad the house is spotless. And, when I changed the sheets, I put out my favorite cheery pillowcase ... just perfect for these darker Fall days.
Two years ago, I spoke for a women's retreat at my home church in Seattle. It was delightful to be back and see so many friends.
In my lovely room, was a huge gift basket, full of all my favorititte things. Not many people know I like pillow cases, so I asked who did the gift basket.
Victoria told me she reads my blog, and had been keeping track of things I mentioned ... pens, note cards, chocolate, nuts, lime green things ... and yes, pillow cases. (how sweet is that)
Pillow cases showed up in my post Top Ten Things I ALWAYS take on a mission trip.
ps. I often buy a book I really want to read, read it very carefully and then give it as a gift. (shhhh ... don't tell)
What do you do when you do not feel well?
