Thursday - Williamsburg Wreath 10

heavy with bounty
speaks of blessings
and hearts filled with thanks.

A few minutes back to our routine and grateful for it.
This is an off week for Jim and Chemo. His white count is improved so we can have more of a normal routine - if we pay attention.
We started off the day in the dark, driving up Connecticut Avenue in light traffic at 6:15 am to make 6:30 Mass at Blessed Sacrament.
On our way home we stopped at Einstein's, where we settled into our usual table - our office - to make plans for the day and lists for Christmas. Jim didn't have his notebook so he scribbled his list on a napkin. That's typical.

Jim does not use a PDA. He has his own system and it has worked fine for him as long as I have known him. Jim has always scribbled down a phone number, a patient note or bit of information on small paper scraps - cleaning tags, parking tickets, business cards, napkins etc etc. What ever was near to hand when he needed it. One of my first wifely lessons was that the scrap pile on the top of the dresser was not trash and that he knew what was on each bit.

And why not? Richmond storyteller Slash Coleman talks on his blog about writing your business plan on a napkin. That works.

Keep it simple is our motto of the moment so there is plenty of space on a folded napkin for our holiday plans.
Is Christmas really only a week away?
