You know you haven't posted in awhile when...

...your mom requests updated pics of your plants. :)

So for all of your viewing pleasure and for the satisfaction of your are a couple of pics...I can't make the first one you'll have to crane your necks or turn your monitors on their sides. Sorry!

Meanwhile, I am feeling much better. Actually figuring out how this semester's schedule will work, enjoying the Christian Imagination reading list, and feeling like it's a great idea to have part of my homework to be to sit at a piano and just be creative.

The most exciting part of my current life is clearly these plant pots...

Well, well. They're shooting up. (thanks to the greenhouse-like indoor temperatures vs. the frigid outside...and now the clay pot boasts a couple of shoots as well. Spring is here! I noticed a couple of weather-clueless cherry blossom buds yesterday too. Do these plants have no sense? There is SNOW on the ground.

Anyway, I don't mind. And the rains are coming...the temperatures are rising...and everything is poised to BURST into bloom.

I'm okay with that.

Feeling much better. But dreamed last night that I forgot to teach tomorrow. Forgot. How would that happen?

Happy Wednesday!

Writing exegesis paper. Would rather be drinking tea in bed. Haven't had coffee since Monday. It is the litmus test of each morning...laying in bed and thinking, "Do I feel like coffee?" Alas, for the fifth day in a row the answer is a resounding "No."

And I'm feeling guilty that the third shoot is only because it's SO cold outside that I had to bring all my pots in. Not the mention the wind the other night just about tipped them all over.

Back to 1 Peter...

spring in a flower pot...winter outside

Quite excited about the second one joining the first. And I have the intellectual capacity to watch them for hours. I'm sick. I can't think. And it's winter here. Alberta-style winter. Blue sky, below freezing temperatures. Wierd.

So I'll not try to write anything witty. Not possible today. Sorry.
