Daily 5 - Day 116

Today's Daily 5:
  1. Burning oil scented with myrrh in my bedroom
  2. Lighting two advent candles - hope and peace
  3. Mostly quiet afternoon and evening, home alone. The right amount of space today.
  4. Not finished with Christmas shopping, but likely done with trips to the mall, and the awful mall crowds.
  5. curled up for much of the day in a favorite sweat shirt, sweat pants, and wrapped in a blanket.
  6. doing lots of little domestic things, planning and getting a handle on the next few weeks
  7. trading a few teasing text messages with my brother J.
  8. Chinese food for lunch
  9. resting, and as such accommodating the exhaustion from yesterday in a way that was still enjoyable
  10. candles lit all around the room, a form of prayer for me.
