Today, I had the day off. I didn't do much in the way of homework (read, nothing, except the menu I'm sort of reviewing now), but that's okay, because was doing other things. Like life.
Today, I re-payed my sister for borrowing her camera when I traveled East for my Knight's graduation by taking her out to lunch. We went to Chipotle and it was amazing, as usual.
Today, I stopped by Barnes and Noble afterwards with her and ended up buying two new books because I can't go into a bookstore without getting something. I got Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling, and If I Stay by Gail Forman.
Today, I went to my guitar lesson, and felt like I am actually starting to accomplish something and get somewhere.
Today, I realized how glad I am to be Catholic, and how deeply I treasure my faith. I thought about how people leave the faith, and how incomprehensible that is to me. I can't imagine not praying the Rosary, I can't imagine not having the Saints to turn to and ask favors of. I can't imagine not looking at the Eucharist and not just believing, but knowing, that Christ is there.
Today, I had a friend over and got to use the beautiful tea set that I received for my birthday for the very first time. It was so nice to catch up, relax for a little bit and talk about what's going on in our lives.
Tonight, I am enjoying the quiet and the occasional soft patter of the rain outside. I have a Hazelnut Latte candle lit on the table beside me, because I recently got over my fear of matches and got in touch with my inner pyromaniac and now light candles all the time.
Tonight, I am thinking of working on a menu I am planning for my catering class. Except planning menus makes me hungry, and we don't have anything good to snack on.
Tonight, I am contemplating starting the Gilmore Girls, a show I have heard much about, and never watched, and that is now so conveniently on Netflix.
Today, and tonight, have been a good day.
