With the journey to Nebraska looming, after Morning Offering I sat down and made lists – a list of things to do before Mick and I leave and a packing list. I spent the rest of the morning editing the first Aaron/Q’uo Dialogue session of the eighth weekend gathering here.

At lunchtime I went up to Middletown and gave blood for my monthly labs. That was the first item on my to-do list. The second was to bring my list of prescriptions up to date and make sure that the records matched the actual pill bottles. It is always good to have that in order when one is traveling in case of an emergency.

I took a break and collected a couple of recipes for the database, one an interesting mixture of tomatoes, black-eyed peas and red bell peppers and the other a wonderfully rich eggnog which I think I will make for Christmas Day, since we will be having it at home this year. It will show off our farm-fresh eggs to great advantage!

Then it was back to the list. I brought my Christmas gift list up to date and left it with a note for Gary so that he is expecting a couple of late-arriving packages and will wrap them for me. My goal there is to have all the gifts ready to sort and mail if needed when we come back from seeing Mom McCarty.

After our bath, Mick and I sat down and compared our to-do lists. It really helps to coordinate our efforts. After talking with him, I re-prioritized my eight remaining chores and gave a silent prayer that tomorrow would give me enough time to do these things, going at my present, inchworm-like speed! Here’s hoping!

Mick offered the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.
