Early Morning Quiet...

 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!

The book sounds interesting, I'll see if my library has it. Head butts to Lukas.

Sounds like an interesting book! Did she have anything choice to say about Trump?

She had such dignity amid the terrible claims that man was making. She rose above. I'm glad to hear of a peaceful day with you and Lukas. You know how to make a good atmosphere for you both.

That sounds like a book worth reading. It's good to hear that Lukas is resting comfortably for the moment at least. May you have plenty of good hours together yet.

I will look for that book. I'm always adding books to my library request list!

How lovely to read about your peaceful day with Lukas. Like me, you don't take anything for granted and view such days as a gift.
