Outside my window...the sky is blue and the sun is shining - thank God the Weatherman is so wrong again !!!
I am thinking...it is so cool to wake up singing like I did this morning instead of how I was in January, waking up wishing I didn't have to face the day at all !
I am thankful for...waking up singing, like I did this morning, instead of how I was in January, waking up wishing I didn't have to face the day at all !
From the kitchen...paint brushes, rollers and rags drying in the sink after a weekend of re-painting our bedroom.
I am wearing...ha ! my red nightgown, my glasses and my green El Naturalista clogs, again...it is Monday after all !
I am creating... a new sanctuary in my bedroom that reflects me. I wanted light and airy yet colorful too , like the colors in some of my recent paintings (click here to see the piece I am using as inspiration !), instead of the beige/tan color I ended up with at the end of the winter. David agreed to paint a third color on the wall, though he did make fun of my "randomness" to the paint guy at Lowes a bit - justified I guess ! ;) As of this morning, I am totally in love with the new blank canvas of a room I have to work with !
I am going...to take my paints and my journal outside on the deck - I need to paint today !!!
I am reading... about so many of my woman friends in blogland learning to live in the present moment and being so grateful for life's gifts. These posts are so very, very inspiring and remarkable !
I am praying ...that I continue to find the strength and the focus to wake up singing in the morning. :)
I am hearing.... the quiet of the neighborhood when everyone is gone to work and it is just me and the animals around.
One of my favorite things...the new paint color in my room - "Sweet Slumber" - how perfect is that for a bedroom? A cool, icy blue with a hint of turquoise. So lovely with the crisp white and the pops of color I plan to bring in with accessories.
A few plans for the rest of the week: meditation tonight, lunch at my house with Lois tomorrow for her birthday, finishing the bedroom decorating slowly...
Here is the beautiful Poo-poo Head/Azzy sleeping on my bed - he loves clean blankets and sheets ! I think he approves of the new wall color.
Here is my side of the bed right now - see the gorgeous pillow with the Icelandic poppy on it painted and sewn by my friend Lo, and the funky lampshade made by yours truly ?
Hope this Monday makes you Mommas out there happy !
