Browsing the wonderful sites on the web is one of my favorite things to do. I am always so inspired by what others are doing and offering to each of us. I found this "journal" at Inspired (how appropriate is that?). The direct link, however, goes to The Simple Woman. I decided to use this journal format today to remind myself of the beauty of simplicity.
FOR TODAY (June 25, 2009)...
Outside my window...the sky is overcast with the occasional tease of sunshine. The rhododendrons are releasing their final blooms and the wind gently reminds me that the trees are alive.
I am thinking...it is a gift to be alive. To have the senses of taste, touch, smell, sound and voice through my written words.
I am thankful for...this moment and all it encompasses.
From the learning rooms...(if this applies) are not all rooms, rooms of learning?
From the kitchen...fresh yogurt, slices of mango, deep red raspberries; all sprinkled with raw oats and accompanied by warm coffee.
I am wearing...my p.j.’s: soft cotton boxer shorts commandeered from my dear husband and an oversized Texas t-shirt from my friend in Dallas, covered by my thermal pink hoody. My feet sit cozily inside my Uggs. ☺
I am creating...this moment. (and later my new professional website.)
I am going...to sit on the beach with my dear friend and contemplate possibilities later this afternoon.
I am reading...mainly blog posts with an occasional dip into Angela’s Ashes and my significant pile of books.
I am hoping...I will stay present to all this day has to offer.
I am hearing...The hum of the white-noise machine left on from last night and the chirping of birds outside my window.
Around the house...all is quiet. My daughter sleeps soundly in her room while I type quietly in my studio.
One of my favorite things...Laughter! ☺
A few plans for the rest of the week: Tomorrow, I am connecting with a friend I have not seen in 33 years! Facebook rocks! Hanging an art show with hubbie. Watching my daughter play soccer. Breathing in life!
The picture thought I am sharing...is at the beginning of the post ☺!
So that's my simple day. I'd love to hear about yours!!
