Almost Christmas

Last night, I was composing this post in my head, and I had so much to say…now, for the life of me, I can’t remember much of anything…

The “Required Rest” continues, and I’m driving everyone crazy because I’m bored out of my mind.  On the bright side, I’ve gone back to baking and have made some delicious chocolate-chip-pecan cookies, and almost perfected my fatayer recipe…on the bad side, still not satisfied with my tiropitas…

Rented a Wii last night, so expect updates from the hospital, shortly. Smile with tongue out

On the really cool side, this is the first year I’ve ever seen winter rainbows. Seen about four of them since November, and feel like it’s God saying to all us, “Hang on! 2011 will be better!” or at the very least, “spring’s coming and don’t worry, no global flooding. Promise.”

Yesterday, though, was the first time I’ve ever seen the whole rainbow. Usually, you see an arc going off into the distance, but this time I saw almost the whole ring…gave the dog walk a real sci-fi feel:

It’s not the greatest picture (took it from my phone), but see the ring around the sun? That’s actually the rainbow…and while it looks vertical in the photo, in reality it was almost horizontal—kind of like a wreath or crown…anyway, I decided to take it as an omen that perhaps I should pull my head out of my butt and stop worrying…

What else? Y’know, there’s not much going on—just me trying to be Zen and relax (when all I really want to do is sit with those pages).
