This week flew by, and I’m spending my weekend with some work, study, and maybe, just maybe, a little rest.
~ studying: Anglo-Saxon literature. I’ve finished up a few paragraphs on whether I see ofermod in The Battle of Maldon as a moral failing or a virtue. Some interesting stuff for this word lover. I’m reading The Dream of the Rood and getting ready to write a 1000 word paper on “what did the word wyrd signify to an Anglo-Saxon Christian?”. The Dream of the Rood is a rich, beautiful poem, and I love when my schoolwork moves me to doxology.
~ beginning a Bible study with some friends on Esther: I’m happy to have found a way to meet for a Bible study that fits in with my work schedule. God provides!
~ preparing to get back to low-carb eating: It’s the way of eating the feels best to me, but I haven’t had adequate supplies lately. I’ve shopped and will do some cooking this weekend to get me back on track. Meanwhile I’m finishing up my dark chocolates with caramel. 🙂
~ wanting: Journibles!
~ shivering: it’s cold and windy today. I’m chilled to the bone. Here’s a picture I took looking through the ice on my windshield on a recent morning:
~ finishing: The White Horse King: The Life of Alfred the Great. It was assigned for my lit class, and I enjoyed it. I should be able to finish Trusting God Even When Life Hurts this weekend, too. It’s excellent!
~ organizing: getting my tax stuff in order and working on my budget.
~ laughing: at this rant & rave in my local paper. At least those of us in South Georgia aren’t tacky like those Yankees in North Georgia — bless their hearts. 😉
I hope you’re enjoying your weekend,
