Sabbath Day

October 19, 2012

What I did yesterday:

Took August to school.

Finished reading Michael Grunwald’s The New, New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era, a fascinating look at the first stimulus bill and all it has accomplished.

Renewed my driver’s license at the DMV. Watched Noelle pick out new glasses.

Had lunch with Noelle – clam chowder, french onion soup and Cuban sliders. A beautiful day, so we ate outside.

Read a bit further in Charles Lemert’s Why Niebuhr Matters. Reflected on how important it was that I studied Niebuhr with a black professor, Dr. Peter Paris of Princeton Seminary, as part of a year long social ethics seminar which began with Black Theology and Ethics.

Cleared the GW school garden and set aside the greens for burning. The garden is done for the year. Time to start planning for next year.

Took a nap.

Family dinner.

Catching up on the post-second-debate news. A couple of episodes of Firefly before bed. I always forget just how good this show was. Thank you Joss Whedon.

In other words – rest.

    I am totally mystified as to what this means….”set aside the greens for buring.”

    Thanks for catching my typo, Peggy. I’ve corrected it to “burning” – as in burning the removed plants parts.
