Reflections of a Day Off
in an extra hour (rage against Daylight Saving Time), and then caught the CNN updates of the devastation in Japan from the comfort of my down duvet
flannel pj's for half the day, then dressed up in my Levis and flannel shirt for the second half
way too much coffee - but it was fair trade so I was just doing my part to support the cause
dust, put my new washer to the test (just to hear it chime) and proofread Kidlet's paper
an oil change -- not me personally, but Benzie did
pictures of women's shoes - so high that I am certain they should come with warning labels; and if they were required foot ware, they would be considered instruments of torture
the April issue of my Science of Mind mag (I know, I skipped ahead a month - but this is a person who reads the last page of the book first)
about the Global Sisters Organization
on Twitter, @SudanSentinel that monitors the crisis in Sudan via satellite imagery AND
@TheElders, a group of eminent global leaders, convened by Nelson Mandela, to address the great global challenges of our time
I tweeted and retweeted
Do the kinds of things that come from the heart...you won't be dissatisfied,you'll be overwhelmed with what comes back. http://bit.ly/6lMy9M
Every day 25K+ girls <18 are married & face huge risks: death or injury due to early sex & childbearing. @TheElders http://bit.ly/gt9s68
Mourn for sisters of Cote d’Ivoire killings; our mourning “must be tears of courage, tears of indignant” @Wipsenafrica http://bit.ly/hVi9cp
Good to know! RT @GlobalGiving #science alert: RT @palafo How a Reactor Shuts Down; What Happens in a Meltdown http://nyti.ms/gs0Npv
on the unthinkable struggles unfolding around the globe ... massacre of the peaceful women protesters in Cote d'Ivorie; the violence and political struggles in Libya; the ongoing struggles in Haiti; and of course the recent earthquakes, tsunami, and now nuclear crisis in Japan. Prayers and affirmations.
I hadn't eaten all the cashews yesterday ...
contented, pensive, and grateful -- and sleepy.
