Lent (4/40)

Five good things about today:
1. I got 10½ hours of sleep!  (And yet a few hours later I was dozing off reading The Meaning of Jesus [CHPC adult ed] and ended up taking a couple naps.  Maybe I should have gone for a walk?)
2. Terry called me!  The last I'd heard was when I bumped into Harriet the Friday of MLK Day weekend and she said he'd hurt his knee at his non-library job and that place was balking at paying the workman's comp.  He says he's been having physical therapy -- hasn't had knee surgery, though he'll probably have to.  He's working the closing shift at the library these days (5-9pm).  And his son just got a job.  Apparently he hadn't actually had one when he moved in with them.  *sighs*
3. It was snowing lightly both times I was outside today.
4. I got a free dinner.
5. The "motivational poster" in the most recent Neil Gaiman blogpost [lj synfeed link].  I had not known there was as make your own "motivational poster" Internet tool.

Three things I did well today:
1. I visited CWM-Beth.  I had White Ambrosia tea from tea forte.  It was indeed good -- and came in a lovely container.  We went to House of Tibet for dinner.  I was in the mood for dumplings but got seduced by the potatoes-and-spinach stir-fry.
2. I did some additional processing (and praying) about a certain relationship.
3. I updated my GoodReads.  And did some tag-tweaking -- in which process I learned that there is a 35-character limit on tags.  Oh intarnets, why do you thwart my organizational attempts?  Oh, I tagged recent posts on femslash_minis, too.  Ari, am I evil for wanting a moderator account for masterlist posting, so that any Maintainer can go back and edit masterlist entries to update them?
4. I actually left various LJ comments.  (I've been so bad at commenting recently.)

Two things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
1. Seeing Rachel at CHPC and getting to debrief with her.
2. Going to church.
