"No—stop!" interrupted Colonel Dent. "Don't send her away..." ~ Jane Eyre
A list of things I cannot stop doing lately:
~ Listening to Wintersong by Sarah McLaughlin.
~ Jogging on the treadmill at the gym
~ Drinking sugar free hot cocoa and eating a Weight Watchers cake each night before bed
~ Crossword puzzles
~ Thinking about the celebration on Christmas Day
~ Telling myself that I am an awesome aunt because I landed a TMX Elmo for Jack
~ Remembering what it was like to perform on stage as an angel in The Nutcracker as a child
~ Talking extra loudly as I teach because my students are in the December doldrums
~ Sipping Nero D'Avola once or twice a week (its a great Sicilian wine)
~ Drinking water (I hate this dry heat)
~ Organizing a recipe box for D.R.
~ Lighting smelly candles at night all over my apartment
~ Getting out of bed late in the morning; in all my seven years of teaching, December is always the month I end up on time to school instead of being early
~ Watching Walk the Line (I have now watched this dvd at least ten times in the past three weeks and cry each time during the proposal scene)
~ Writing out Christmas and Hanukkah cards; I hit 45 this evening
~ Wishing I was Nigella Lawson
~ Putting my seat warmer on when I am in the car since its gotten so cold here
~ Grading papers
~ Being excited about the vacation to come and all I have planned for it
~ Taking extra hot showers
~ Wearing skirts to work; I am usually a pants woman, but lately I have bought lots of skirts and tights and Mary Janes.
