May 3, 2018
Outside my window . . .
I am hearing. . . the splash of puddles on the pavement as cars drive by, students heading to the high school up the street.
I am thinking . . . about all of the plants that are loving this wet weather, and how much they'll sprout up in the next few days.
I am thankful . . . for girlfriends who have become the sisters I never had.
In the kitchen . . . a recipe for fajita bowls that we'll make tomorrow night when my niece and her friend come for dinner. Local family will be here, too, and I'm hoping for nice weather so we can eat outside on the patio.
I am wearing . . . jeans, tunic top, and (grudgingly) a pair of boots, covering up my pedicure because it's too cold for sandals today.
I am creating. . . a balanced budget?
One of my favorite things. . . this new water bottle. I bought two of them at the grocery store - one for Dan and one for me. The top part screws off making it easy to clean and easy to fill with ice. Ingenious!
watching hooked on . . . Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. It's a wonderful series about a beautiful, feisty woman detective in 1920s Melbourne. I love the era, her clothes, and her spitfire attitude.
I am listening to . . . Alison Krauss, "In the Palm of Your Hand" on Pandora.
I am looking forward to . . . having breakfast with a girlfriend tomorrow morning.
Around the house. . . my friend Renee gave me this lovely flowering plant. It's called an Orange Star (that's what the tag says). It has been blooming for weeks, and there are still lots of buds.
A favorite quote for the day. . .
"In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you."
A few plans for the rest of the week . . The weather is supposed to clear up and it should be sunny and warm. I'm going to finish planting outside, see a friend who is moving out of state, and see where the weekend takes me.
A peek into my day. . . I found these plant markers at the local garden store. It makes me feel very organized and efficient to have the herbs identified and neatly labeled:)
Happy Thursday to all,
