Another day with sunshine coming through the windows, so the cats and I are happy, happy!

Spent a little over an hour this morning working on Sisters' books. Now I'm up to date again and everything should be okay while I'm away. Mind you, this is on top of the almost 7 hours I spent on Friday. The filing really needed to be re-organized and I did that. Rather monotonous and defintely time consuming, but will make a great difference now. I had set the original system up when I first started working at Sisters and didn't have the same understanding of what would be required. Ah well, live and learn.

Have a few things to do on the computer, than back to stitching. The man of the couple is completed and I have some of the woman's headdress. I would like to finish that this weekend and start on her gown. I would love to finish this piece at the retreat next weekend and get back to my rotation and the new birth announcement project.

England in 1819

An old, mad. blind, despised, and dying king,
Princes, the dregs of their dull race, who flow
Through public scorn, -- mud froma muddy spring, --
Rulers who neither see, nor feel, nor know,
But leech-like to their fainting country cling,
Till they drop, blind in blood, without a blow, --
A people starved and stabbed in the untilled field, --
An army, which liberticide and prey
Makes as a two-edged sword to all who wield, --
Golden and sanguine laws which tempt and slay;
Religion Christless, Godless -- a book sealed;
A Senate, -- Time's worst statute unrepealed, --
Are graves, from which a glorious Phantom may
Burst, to illumine our tempestuous day.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
1792 - 1822
