An ordinary day

 "Every day is a blank page."
 
FOR TODAY, September 24, 2014

Outside my window . . .blue skies and a soft breeze.

I am listening to . . .the hum of the dryer, one of the dogs snoring, and the lawn mower next door.

I am thinking . . .how nice it is to have a day off with nothing on the calendar.

I am thankful . . .for my neighbor and her green thumb.  She just brought me a begonia plant that can 'winter' indoors, and then I can plant it outside in the spring.

In the kitchen . . .banana bread is baking in the oven.  Tonight we're having cod fillets, steamed green beans with bacon, and pasta on the side.

I am wearing . . .capris and tank top.  It is 82 degrees.

I am creating . . .a fall wreath for the front door.

I am going . . .nowhere today!

I am wondering . . .if I'll ever make it through the stack of books I want to read.

I am reading . . .War Brides by Helen Bryan

I am looking forward to . . .my friend, Pamela, coming for a visit just three weeks from today!.

I am learning . . .to be patient with people.

Around the house . . .I'm doing some fall cleaning.  Two rooms left!
 
I am pondering . . .the best way to reach out to someone.

A favorite quote for today . . ."You must do the things you think you cannot do." (Eleanor Roosevelt)

One Some of my favorite things . . .pistachios, writing prompts, old fashioned photos.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . .Take one dog to the vet, the other to the groomer.  Take the car in to find out where the weird squeaky noise is coming from.  Attend the women's retreat at church. Go to my nephew's birthday party.  Take a drive in the mountains to see the fall colors.

A peek into my day . . .This was the view on my walk yesterday morning.

Wow, I love the clouds in that picture! I want to go to the mountains to see the fall colors too! I've never been there in the fall. Last week was in the 80's here too. This weekend has definitely chilled off. You and me and our stack of books. I need more reading time!
