In the Bleak First Few Days of March
I was late for leadership council yesterday morning. It has been a long morning even before leaving the house but in the midst of everything I stopped to pray and somehow that prayer time became nap time. I texted Barbra to let tell her I was coming and I arrived toward the end of prayer time. After leadership council I ran over to Whole Foods for some oranges, peeled, and came home to grab a quick bite. I brushed my teeth and was off to the dentist. I get a one week respite and we are back at it again after spring break week. I got caught in a bit of traffic and since I was nearly out of gas, stopped in the cold windy day to fill up Sequisha. I was home just long enough to turn on lights, give Buddy a couple of treats and then I was out the door to meet Dena for dinner. Meanwhile Roy is trying to make it to Seven Lakes High School in time to vote. I returned home just a few minutes after him. He asked if I would mind if he went to the precinct meeting at 7:30. Go ahead, knock yourself out on that political stuff. He said it was rather boring and interesting to see how the process works. He also stated that he was not the only one there interested in the political process and the general agreement is, our nation has taken a wrong turn.
This morning I was out the door bright and early to go into Houston for a doctor appointment. Roy suggested using the tollway and taking the back way in. It was a nice theory but it was rather slow. I made it to the appointment with one minute to spare. After that I had a quick breakfast and a quick trip into Whole Earth Provision, looking for Flax clothes and I found some on sale, and The Container Store. I was very conservative in what I picked out, then it was back to the Rancho.
Today is Ash Wednesday and I have a Lenten post rolling around in me. I had written it out and I have no clue where I filed it. I might have to begin again.
