Simple Woman's Daybook - April 27, 2009

For Today...April 27, 2009

Outside my window...The clouds are light gray, promising a time of waiting and then rain. A lone bird's insistent call disturbs the calm.

I am thinking...that there are days when I enjoy the gray, the rain, and quiet.

I am thankful for...the weekend I had with my husband. We had originally planned to stay at a swank hotel and have a fancy dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Instead, we looked at books, books and more books, ate lunch and dinner out, spent quiet time alone, and just enjoyed the silence.

From the kitchen...Dinner will be spaghetti and meatballs courtesy of my husband. I am so thankful that he cooks dinner during the work week!

I am burgandy sleep shorts and a soft peach long-sleeved shirt. As I've said before, I sleep in some of the weirdest ensembles.

I am learn to let go.

I am reading...I finished Poltergeist by Kat Richardson and am deciding whether or not to move straight on to the third book in the series, Undergound, or slip a book in between them. For some reason, I like to torture myself that way. ;) I'll be starting The Tao of Writing - Imagine. Create. Flow by Ralph L. Wahlstrom soon.

I am hoping...for a stress-free, productive day.

I am creating...another collage for Full Moon Dreamers that will be posted May 9th or before. I just knew once I started to collage, there'd be no holding me back!

I am praying...that the reawakening I feel in my spirit continues to grow and flourish. I also pray that the endeavors of my blog friends do the same.

Around the house...Goodness! There is so much to be done around the house this week. Catching up on laundry is a must and I'd love to dig out the hostas in the backyard. The previous owner planted in them in too sunny a spot. They also house the bunnies that I'm fond of watching but am not fond of their eating habits!

One of my favorite things...Looking through the windows and out over the balcony to what appears to be stillness but is actually a haven of life, critters stirring preparing for their day... It makes me think of the Wind and the Willows or some other children's story.

A few plans for the rest of the week...I'd love to get some reading and writing time in. I'll also be judging the Texty Ladies poetry contest and gathering prizes together for shipping.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Just because.
