For Today. . . May 6, 2013
Outside my window. . . Cool and overcast, but the grass is soooo green and trees are just beginning to bud. A big fat robin is sitting in the tree outside my window.
I am thinking. . . of how we are all created to be in community with one another. Relationships can be fulfilling and challenging. They require constant tending.
I am thankful. . . for the mentors in my life.
In the kitchen. . . Luke is coming for supper and I'm making his favorite -- chicken broccoli casserole, salad and garlic bread.
I am wearing. . . yoga pants, t-shirt and bare feet;)
I am creating. . .
that darned slipcover. Still. I finally finished it!
I am going. . . to see my nephew this afternoon. He's 8-years-old going on 30.
I am reading. . . "The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope," by Rhonda Riley.
I am looking forward to. . .dinner with girlfriends on Friday.
I am hearing. . . a dog barking, Darius Rucker singing on Pandora, a lawn mower in the distance.
Around the house. . . still Spring cleaning; getting ready to have the kitchen floor refinished and some new carpet put in.
A favorite quote for today. . .
"There is never a time when your life is not 'this moment.'"
One of my favorite things. . . a new app for my iphone called Random Gratitude. It pops up once a day, at random times, and asks,"What are you grateful for at this moment?" I love it. No matter what is happening in my day, it helps me think of something positive.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . . take the dogs to the Vet, paint the bathroom.
A peek into my day. . . I can't seem to go to the store these days without picking up another pot of flowers or some kitchen herbs for the garden.
