Sitting…on the couch in the living room.
Drinking…an after supper cup of Lady Grey tea.
Watching…the Raptors game. When the game is over, I’ll switch over to American election results. You see my priorities.
Thanking…God that the gum surgery I had yesterday went well, that I have no pain or swelling. This was minor surgery to take away a bit of gum tissue so I can have a crown fitted on a tooth that broke off, but still, I expected to feel things more than I have.
Feeling…pleased that acetaminophen works so well as a painkiller for me. I discovered recently that I’m allergic to ibuprofen, and it’s nice to know that there’s an adequate substitute for me. (My little grandson had a bad reaction to ibuprofen a few weeks ago, too. I just get rash, he got rash and a swollen lip, too. So the Advil allergy might be genetic.)
Getting...used to snow on the ground. Yes, winter is here and won’t be leaving until April or May.
Sharing…my thanksgiving this month at Out of the Ordinary. Read the details here.
Reading…The Intolerance of Tolerance by D. A. Carson and Seeing Beauty and Saying Beautifully: The Power of Poetic Effort in the Work of George Herbert, George Whitefield, and C. S. Lewis by John Piper. I’m reminded that these are both men that I enjoy more as speakers than writers.
Anticipating…the birth of my fourth grandchild in one month. I’m thinking it’s time to start freezing dinners for the family to use during the early days with the new baby. But they have to be dairy-free, nut and peanut-free, with no onions, peppers or cooked veggies except spinach, carrots and tomatoes. These limitation make the task much more difficult. Any suggestions?
Wishing…you a November filled with thanksgiving to our heavenly Father.
