No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you." - Aldous Huxley

Music of the Day:
-- The sounds of life around me

Days meditating: 13

Drinking: Water; glass of wine and a small bowl of chips

Our house smells wonderful this morning. Because it is after the season we were able to pick up a 13.5 pound for less than $10. Michael has the turkey in the oven. He chopped up the giblets, minus the liver which he fried for me to eat. The rest will go into the gravy I will make later. While the turkey baked I washed up the potatoes Michael to make mashed potatoes.

With cooking the turkey breast side down and am surprised how brown the drippings are. Because of this the gravy is very brown.

The rest of the day is topsy turvey and I have no plan. Thus I am a bit fussy.

After meditating this morning, I cleared off the vanity and pulled the drawers out. For today we are going to attach the mirror to the vanity base, or so we thought. I get the mirror cleaned. In all this mirror's travels we have found only one chip - a small one. The minor hang up is the brackets I purchased to attach the mirror to its frame are not the right kind. For now, this project is on hold.

Meanwhile, I can begin working on the office part of my room. Maybe this is where I can throw some stuff out or gift it away.

Back to my computer I decide to do some research on Scottish currency. I have the beginnings of a story and I wanted to know about the monies of Scotland. From this site I was led to another site of equal interest and then to another and another. All this information makes me want to visit Scotland all the more.

The 'Net can be such fun.

Then from the research I did yesterday on Henri Matisse, I looked up Alice B. Toklas. She was a friend and lover of Gertrude Stein. This was all new to me. I have heard about Alice B. Toklas brownies for years. I did not realize there was an actual woman behind what was a myth to me. And to think both Alice and Gertrude were friends of Matisse.

Other searches were on pillow pets. I want the black and white cat. Although the panda bear is cute too. Then I looked up Cabbage Patch Dolls. I have wanted one ever since they came out. But, alas (as I draw my hand across my forehead), I have never owned one. I am torn between one of the preemies and Nell Abby. However, at $295 for one, I will have to take a picture and adore from afar.

I have signed up for a cat owner newsletter. In this particular edition there is information on learning how to read the labels on canned and dry food containers. Wow, there is a lot to know! I found I want to change the canned food Bailey eats but his dry food is good.

What a day, I think I will be taking tomorrow off.
