This week's agenda: I am packing for a trip to New York! Yes, siree, my friends at Planet Blue Tours are taking me abroad. What a blessed girl I am. I am still pinching myself at the prospect that I will soon be walking the streets of Manhattan... in many layers of clothing! Meanwhile, there's a lot of avocado picking going on at home, and I'm a tad guilt-ridden that I'm not helping out more (resolve to do the night shift).
The Word for the Week: "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success." Joshua 1:8 (The Gospel for our Good... not for feeling guilty and terrible.)
Quote of the Week: "There's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing." Explorer Sir Randolph Fiennes
Dictionary.com word for the week: procrustean \proh-KRUHS-tee-uhn\, adjective:
1. Tending to produce conformity by violent or arbitrary means.
2. Pertaining to or suggestive of Procrustes.
"The degree to which we are able to take freedom – religious or otherwise – and turn it into a procrustean pursuit that ultimately tramples our humanity never ceases to fascinate me."
Reading: Yes, I would very much like to do this! After sifting through a bunch of my books over the weekend, I resolved to finally read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society – on the plane with me, you go!
The breakfast club: Avocado on toast with a touch of salt and pepper, anyone?
