The whole reason I decided to take today off was because of our trip to Pittsburgh over the weekend, to see my lovely and talented sister-in-law, Laura, perform . . . she is a modern dance major at Point Park, and gave a beautiful performance !! Fun as it was, our trip was superfast . . . 5+ hours to get there Saturday night at 11:30pm, dance performance at 2pm Sunday, and back in the car for another 5 hour trip home Sunday night !!!! Yep, a day off was just the thing !!
So I started my day off with a leisurely pot of tea, in my favorite teacup, and in my favorite chair. Mind you, I have tea everyday at work, but tea for me is in a mug, with my mug warmer, at my desk, chugged down when I get a spare moment. What a welcome change !
Then I spent some time finishing up one of my latest projects . . . knitting my own hat. I had done the "first knitting project scarf" a few weeks ago, and had moved on to the "necessary because I live in frigid upstate New York hat" !!! I actually did try many times to take a decent picture of myself in my new cool hat, but it just wasn't happening . . . could be the fact that I have no make-up on today, and that's just scary for everyone !! Now, what to knit next . . . ?!?!!My day off is coming to an end now . . . almost time for Jack to come home ! The whole situation, though, reminded me that God is truly sovereign and in control, and that He knows our needs, and when and how to meet them . . . even if it's something as seemingly insignificant as a day off from work !!
