Saturday, December 30, 2006 the House...

It’s a beautiful day in West Texas…cold and crisp, with blue skies and the sun trying to push aside the gray clouds. Diffused light pours into the living room through the shutters. I’ve been visiting with a girlfriend on the phone, just laughing, sharing stories, and seeking the Lord about some matters.

It’s the Saturday of a long weekend. Part of me doesn’t even want to get dressed and get going. My husband is way west, working on one of the leases. One of our good friends is finalizing the tail end details of our duplex renovation, and insists he doesn’t need my assistance. A long list of errands and chores keep pulling at me. But Zack, our wonder dog, lays beside my chaise lounge on his big chair, sighing, snuffling and finally, snoring.

James Taylor softly croons in the background.

It’s peaceful around here.

I’ll get out and go do those errands… tomorrow.

Sounds like my Saturday. If it can't be done online, while sitting in my chair, it don't need doing. ;-)

Yes, ma'am...I did turn on the dryer, twice. ;)
