It is 445 AM and the moon is out in full, accompanied by a lovely light breeze. Himself has had an early breakfast and is sleeping peacefully in our bed. I took out the household trash and await a grocery delivery. Saturday was spent catching up on calls, correspondence and napping and today I plan to prepare two or three soups and vegetables along with baking some potatoes for the week.
I just finished the memoir by Marie Yovanovitch, the former US ambassador to Ukraine which I would recommend to anyone with an interest. Though I grew up around military and government kids overseas and knew a few whose parents were Foreign Service professionals, this book provides more than a passing glance into the life of a Foreign Service Officer as well as the successes and pitfalls of diplomacy.
Wishing everyone a happy week!
