  • Mood:

And where have I been?

Working on the revisions of Cold Welcome.  Rehearsals and services for Holy Week.   Getting sick on Holy Saturday and thus unable to sing Easter Sunday.   A little knitting (presently close to the end of the cuffs on a pair of royal blue socks, which will be the 4th pair of the year.)  A little (in the past two weeks) taking walks on the springtime land and taking pictures.  A little cooking (including making up a new dish that is good but needs adjustment.)   Watching (with continued and increasing dismay and disgust) the self-destruction of the Republican Party by its various candidates for the Presidency and their entourages and overwhelming inability to figure out what they're doing wrong.

Not that I'm 100% agreement with anyone else, but the GOP began heading for this cliff decades ago and steadfastly refused to change course.
