A Quiet Weekend At Home

It is a very cold morning with single digit temperatures and below zero wind chills. Brrrrrrr! The walk into my office building was bone chilling. I am grateful for the warmth of my office and for the hot coffee I will soon be drinking.

It was a mostly quiet weekend. By the end of work on Friday I was more than ready for the weekend. An unexpected surprise was getting to pick up my granddaughter, Chloe, from her daycare on Friday. It was just what I needed and I love to surprise her with my presence. She's really a lot more fun now that she can talk. We have some wonderful conversations. She is very playful and full of joy.

I was supposed to go to the monastery yesterday but I had to decline. Part of my afternoon was spent making chicken soup and trying to stay warm. The room where I spend most of my alone time at home is the coldest room in the house. It's what used to be a one car garage. When I am there on a really cold day it is like camping out. I accept the cold as the price of solitude.

Stay warm. Relax and live!
