here is the weather report . . . it was -35C when i got up and it has now warmed up to -20C, with light snow and winds . . . hmmmmm . . . sounds like a heat wave for Christmas!!
speaking of which, even tho’ Christmas may be hustling and bustling all around us, i was still able to read today . . . if i don’t read a book or two a week, well i get crabby and have terrible withdrawal angst . . . the book in hand at the moment, In the Presence of My Enemies, the Martin and Gracia Burnham story . . . excellent reading . . . makes a suburban type Christian weigh in on some lifestyle issues . . . i’m about half way through ...
i thought i would be reading all evening (while throwing a log in the fire every now and then), but my husband wanted to spend some tv time with me . . . shock shock, i mean this was instead of watching football!!! now guys, that is how you tell your wife you really really love her - by saying "why yes dear, i would much rather watch a mushy romantic movie with you tonight, instead of my grid iron heroes!!"
despite the cold, despite the Christmas anxieties - it was a very good day . . . it almost felt normal . . . and in our world of chronic pain, that is a very good thing indeed . . . thank you Lord.
