[Fifth Saturday after Epiphany] joy sadhana is home from retreat

"Joy Sadhana is a daily practice in the observation of joy."
-mylittleredgirl [more info]

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light. And they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. (Isaiah 9:2, Handel's Messiah)

Good things about today:
  • retreat
  • Houseguest washed my dishes while I was away.
  • Brief game of A2A:BE with Housemate and her houseguest.
    I won: Old (Sarah -- Jacob and Joseph were the other 2 cards played ... Jacob being the one picked randomly [as there were only 3 of us playing]), Worthless (To Blaspheme), Cuddly (A Baby)
Things I did well today:
  • I helped clean up after retreat (it's the one non-optional part of retreat, but I usually end up not doing much on account of everything getting done while I'm packing up my stuff or whatever).
  • I showed "Shit White Feminists Say" to Housemate and her houseguest.
  • I did laundry after I got home.
Things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
["anything that you're looking forward to, that means you're facing tomorrow with joy, not trepidation," as Ari says]
  • church
  • I have intentions of watching the Super Bowl halftime show.
