I am Remembering: I showed pumpkins like this last year to you.
They are so wonderfully carved each year by a Shelter Volunteer, I had to show them again. (after all, they carved them again)
I am Watching: Pie chase a motorized toy around the kitchen.
It's not a mouse, but everyday cannot be Disneyworld at our house.
I am planning: To make spaghetti and meatballs tonight.
Premade meatballs: angus beef in your grocer's freezer.
I am Knitting: what I was knitting yesterday and
the sequined berry yarn Trap. Katherine very kindly gifted me the fun yarn. It gets compliments wherever it goes, and its barely 6 inches long.
I am rejoicing: because today is the day I would have had to recertify for Neonatal
Resuscitation. I'm retired. I don't have to recertify.
I hated that test. I hated the written and the practical.
It is a necessary part of being a NICU nurse, but I am Rejoicing that I am retired. I waited for enough babies to be pushed or pulled into this world, praying they'd cry and be pink instead of the other. Most times it was good; sometimes it was awful. The worst kind of awful you can't even imagine.
Oh yeah, but this is about Rejoicing!
I am reading: The Day I Turned Uncool, by Dan Zevin.
I am laughing with each page.
I am hoping: that tomorrow's sunrise will be as spectacular as last Thursday's. It makes going to the shelter at 0600 even better when the sky is ablaze.
I am wishing: you a wonderful evening this very night!
