Since we went TV-less over two years ago, winter evenings would be pretty long if I didn't keep busy. And I keep busy--either telephoning family to catch up on news, writing on my blog, doing laundry or grocery shopping or going to my weekly writers group meeting or walking at Cedar Lakes or reading.
Here's what I've been up to tonight:
- stop in the library's AV department to check out some ballad CDs
- stop at the post office to mail bills, and then the grocery store on the way home
- A quick bite of leftover soup for dinner
- a little time for the snailmail.
- decided to make cranberry-orange muffins before my cranberries spoiled
- spread the leftover grated orange peel to dry for future use
- used the oranges that I'd grated the peel from for the muffins to make Winter Salad.
- computer time--caught up on email, wrote a blog or two, read some news and other storytellers' blogs.
- offline to read some stories from Katherine Briggs' book Folktales of England.
- Then back online for one last quick look, and now it's time to get ready for tomorrow.
Elizabeth Ellis, I think it was, said to be a storyteller one must do something every day to reach that goal. What did I do today? Not much, by the look of it, but each little bit adds to the whole of my days and my life.
