Good morning all! 'Tis a very sunny but chilly nonetheless one here in New England. Claire Bear had some frost to get off of Ruby before driving her back to campus early this morning. The kids were very helpful this morning in making sure everything got done: trash, dishwasher, feeding the cats, etc. while I prepped tonight's dinner.
Speaking of the cats, they got into quite a fight this morning that Abby had to break up. Later once the kids were all on the bus, I went into the living room and found several balls of fur from their squabble -- enough to make a new kitten. I quickly scooped it up lest it work its way into the wood stove intake fans.
I went to the morning Eucharistic liturgy before heading to work. On the way down I listened to more of my audiobook, "When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers" by Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio. I particularly liked today's chapter as it was about St. Cyprian. Despite being a graduate of St. Cyprian school, his contribution as an early Church leader was something I never really had a good understanding of. I may rip just that chapter and send it to my dad and sibs so that they might have an understanding of the persecutions and controversies of that time.
As usual I've got code to debug and refine today. I'm hoping to catch tonight's Body Step class before reaching home for dinner. And of course I'm hoping the roast turns out. It's my first time with this recipe. Tomorrow is Veteran's Day and I'm using my annual Employee Designated Holiday to spend the day with my kids who have the day off from school. I'm a Veteran of the USAF, why not? Perhaps we'll also get them to the Veteran's Day parade.
