Throw Pillow as Nose Warmer
Not much going on in this corner of the world this morning. I'm just happy it's Saturday. Woo hoo! The job is going well, but I've grown out of the habit of such prolonged daily engagement with people -- it's nice to have some time to myself! I'm hoping to get out and do some photography today, and Dave and I might see a movie.
I ate the rest of our peppery pasta last night, picking out the peppercorns just like I did the first night. I thought maybe 24 hours of marinating would render it inedible, but no, it was fine. Dave went on a pub outing with some people from work, but I just came home to hibernate with Olga.
Isn't she cute? She loves to keep her nose warm. She presses it into my leg when she lies next to me, or buries it somehow in the fabric of the couch or the bed. I guess it must feel weird to have a big wet chilly nose.
I'm reading Reza Aslan's biography of the historical Jesus, "Zealot." This is the book that prompted a Fox News interviewer to challenge Aslan for daring, as a Muslim, to write about Jesus. I'll be interested to see what it's like. The librarians at school are writing reviews for the new books they've read to display alongside the books on the shelves -- maybe this will be my contribution. I just don't want people to think I'm some kind of zealot myself!
