RevGalBlogPals Friday Five

1. The weather in your location: A beautifully magnificant sunshiney autumn day.

2. Where you are typing this: The middle computer on the Formation Floor at Monastery Immaculate Conception in Ferdinand, Indiana.

3. Where you might like to be sitting if you could be anywhere: Well, right now, this feels like the perfect place for me. I'm on fall break; I've had three days to be back at the monastery, time to just hang with folks here without having to run off to this, that, or the other meeting, event, funeral, church thing, class, or anything else. Of course, it might be nice to be sitting somewhere that's not having salmon patties for lunch ..... huzzah for cinnamon toast!

4. A chore you have to do this weekend: Read 78 papers on the Catholic understanding of the Gospels, and 12 papers on the scriptural basis for Catholic social teaching .... none of which has been done in these last few days of fall break, and grades are due 8AM Tuesday morning .... and I'm not gonna have any time to do them this weekend. But the sun is shining and it's all good .....

5. Something delightful you will do or would like to do this weekend: Well, I'm planning to do the first one relatively shortly, in terms of sitting outside and [not] grading papers (maybe try another feeble attempt at arty-type stuff), just enjoying the sunshine. Then tonight begins our Benedictine Life Weekend, for which I am on the team with a couple other good friends, and at which point I will get to meet the Great-and-Wonderful Natty, and help her realize her true calling as a Benedictine.

What wonders a little sleep and sunshine can do to one's outlook on life!

Oh yeah, almost forgot .... somewhere in there today I have to cause some chaos in a couple offices around here, to welcome some of my favorite nuns back from a month-long trip to Australia. Hmmmmm ..... what kind of trouble shall I cause ...... {evil grin}

Happy sunshine, folks, and may your pet elephant never develop a peanut allergy.

Enjoy the sunshine!
We could use some here. I'm fighting the urge to turn on the furnace.
