wizards, friends and pancakes

-Sipping a mug of tea while reading Harry Potter. I don't know why I feel closer to Hogwarts here (maybe it's kids wearing 'prefect' badges and school scarves) but it's so fun to read all of the books again.

-A deep, vocational, whimsical, amusing, reminiscing, theological, loving conversation with Rob and Karen. It really was all of those things at once. They're awesome. Plus, they've informed me that I absolutely must come visit my "dog niece" Abby when I can. :)

-Getting really into the shrove Tuesday thing and eating blueberry pancakes for breakfast and dinner. They're so good! I'm really looking forward to Lent being a time of renewed vision and discernment, and am going to mass with Catherine tonight for Ash Wednesday (most Protestant churches don't do Ash Wed here).

Happy Ash Wednesday, sista! (I was a good Catholic girl today and ate fish at lunch:)

I miss you! Glad to see your internet/computer is up and running again. We just hired a new girl...from Scotland! She and I had a great chat about your neck of the woods. LOVE YOU! - Ash

Hi Sista! It was such a great service (though I did eat meat beforehand...). The ol' computer's still not great, it's very sllllloooowww, but is still usable. I'm excited you have a Scottish co-worker. How fun. I miss you, we must skype soon...haven't seen my nieces in too long! Love you :)
