Listening: "Sometimes it's a Bitch" by Stevie Nicks (best lyric - "I try to dance with what life has to hand me")

Reading (perhaps quality): Back with The Secret Book of Grazia dei Rossi.

Reading (definitely pulp): Finished the Anne Perry mystery.

Drinking: Some diet coke with plenty of ice.

Was looking through a couple of boxes of yet-unpacked stuff and found a clipboard I made during my horrible junior year of college (well horrible only because of my roommates-with-severe-issues, otherwise it was fine). The clipboard has a bunch of pictures and quotes, including the famous prayer by St. Francis of Assisi. Just reading it to myself, then reading it aloud reminded of that unpleasant time and brought such an incredible sense of current peace.

Lord, make me a channel of Thy peace.
That where there is hatred I may bring love,
That where there is wrong I may bring the spirit of forgiveness,
That where there is discord I may bring harmony,
That where there is error I may bring truth,
That where there is doubt I may bring faith,
That where there is despair I may bring hope,
That where there are shadows I may bring Thy light,
That where there is sadness I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather
To comfort than to be comforted;
To understand than to be understood;
To love than to be loved;
For it is by giving that one received;
It is by self-forgetting that one finds;
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven;
It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.

Good weekend this weekend - friday night went to the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse for the first time - good movie (Die Another Day), good company. Saturday day did some cleaning then that night went to Old Stein over near Annapolis with Foster, Fabian, Demmert, Darren and D. Had some good beer (the raspberry lambic was sublime) and food - the gang of us hung out and talked. Much good natured razzing was exchanged. Then today I've done some cleaning and then Foster came over for some hair dying. Mine's still wet now so I don't know how the color turned out - am anticipating a slight color lift and my 10 grey hairs gone.

a m. just a m

Doing (life and related tasks): Foster dyed my hair today very nicely while I missed huge chunks of hers. Otherwise did some cleaning and organizing of the apartment.

Doing (crafty stuff): Doing the arm decreases on the back of the Grecian Plait sweater. Hope to finish the back today or tomorrow.

Wanting: A haircut. A few extra hours sleep.

Anticipating: All the bachelorette stuff for D this weekend.

last one everything else what I'm working on on to the dailies all (well some) about me back to the index page next one
