I am having...
Chamomile tea in a large Christmas mug - a gift from my mother. It is antique white with raised white poinsettias.
I am feeling...
Fat. HA! Well, I do feel fat. I am not technically fat, but that is how I feel and I KNOW that I am out of shape.
On my mind...
New Year's resolutions and my Sophia. She is sleeping on the couch next to me with mustard rubbed all over her chest and arm. She spilled boiling water on herself when she made tea tonight. The mustard is drying and the burn will be better by morning. I am glad that she is sleeping peacefully and I thank God for dependable and natural remedies for all of life's problems.
A quote to share...
"Grant me a wish now, O bonny New Year,-
What do you wish me from far or anear?
Show me your gifts and your treasures rare,
Read me your prophecies, dark or fair!
What lies before me of loss or gain-
What is awaiting me, joy or pain?
What is my portion of bale or bliss-
Fate's cruel frown or fortune's kiss?
Whate'er you wish then O bright New Year,
Whether that wish bring a smile or a tear,
Message and token it still shall be
Sent by my Father through you to me."
