Good morning or whatever part of the day it is for you. Today is Friday February 20, 2015. The temperature is 57.3°F and the humidity is 87% at 4:58 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0.7 with gusts of 3.1 mph. It was overcast when I stuck my head out this morning but there didn’t seem to be any fog when I looked down the street. No stars, no moon. I dislike driving in fog, especially in the dark. I’ll be leaving in about an hour and a half. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 71 today.

After my drive today, Mr. Siduri and I will go up and to his mom’s and take care of some business for her. She’s getting on in years and he’s begun taking on more of her banking, etc. At present, she’s able to do most of the stuff herself, but he’s assuming power of attorney for when she can’t. She understands this and while she regrets giving up her independence, realizes the necessity and, happily, trusts him. He’s been helping her for years.

The biography of Teresa of Avila is interesting, but so foreign. On the one hand, I feel a little sorry for this woman who spends half her time with her head in the clouds “seeing” and “hearing” angles and saints, Christ, the Virgin, as well and devils. On the other hand, I’m not worried about this champion wheeler- dealer.

I guess I will not get much writing or reading done today, but I can try.

Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day treats you well.


Writing schedule:

1. Continue reading Teresa of Avila .

2. Spend an hour with Siegfried

3. Write up interview with Jeff

4. Review something for Examiner.

It is the second day of Chinese New Year, but it's a very hot day here.

It is bitter cold here. I do hope your day goes smoothy. Sounds like you have a very good read to enjoy.

Well, the day was... interesting. Nothing like a good plan to go cattywampus. The book is good, though. Hope the weather cooperates where you are.

Happy New Year. I live in a part of the country with a large Asian population, so there are lots of displays and parades in different areas.
