FOR TODAY August 5, 2009
prompted by The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window the skies are gray. I see a mixture of plum colored leaves and pale green gently swaying in the breeze.
I am thinking I could get up and do something, but it feels pretty cozy right here. (note i switched 'should' for 'could'.)
I am thankful for the opportunity to linger.
From the kitchen I am sipping a slightly warm cup of coffee that I wish was just a little hotter.
I am wearing my Life is Good pj’s – sunshine yellow and orange with little flip flops all over them. They make me happy ☺.
I am creating this post.
I am going to work on my upcoming day retreat called “Return Home to Yourself”.
I am reading “The Bean Trees” by Barbara Kingsolver
I am hoping my summer cold only lasted one day (yesterday.)
I am hearing a gentle fan, distant traffic noises and my own silence.
Around the house all is quiet.
One of my favorite things is having a new day spread before me with open possibilities.
A few plans for the rest of the week: writing, reading, resting, gardening and getting my hair done. Whoopee. Also wondering if I will summon the courage to go to a community drum circle this week?!??!?
My picture thought is called "a crate of possibilities". Taken in Maine, 7/09
What possibilities fill your crate this simple day?
