Simple Woman’s Day Book–Monday, June 27, 2011

FOR TODAY
Outside my window
...a most beautiful summer day has finally appeared. Sunny, dry , light breeze and a high of 82 today ! Awesome !

I am thinking…that today would be a lovely beach day but I will be sticking closer to home, playing the Rock Fairy for some big orders.

I am thankful for...all the hard work that David and I have put in to the apartment upstairs that is for rent. (David especially !) It is looking so beautiful and ready for a great tenant to come and share our house with us !

From the kitchen...with all the painting, cleaning, and so on, there ain’t much cooking in the kitchen. David had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, some carrots, and a couple of bananas in his lunch today !

I am wearing...black leggings, a lilac tank top and my favorite studio shirt ! Ready for painting action !

I am creating...some more Rock love to go out into the world….

I am going...to buckle down and get to work right after this post. I need to stay off this computer as much as possible today !

I am reading...”The Red Garden” by Alice Hoffman. I am actually listening to it, read by Nancy Travis. I borrowed the audio version of it from my local library to have for one week on my Ipod. How awesome is technology ?

I am hoping…that just the right tenants find our cozy apartment as soon as possible.

I am praying for…a dear friend and her Mom who suffered a stroke. Much light and love to my friend and her family.

I am hearing...the hum of the laptop, birds chirping outside, and in the distance, the flow of the little city I live in.

Around the house...dust kangaroos hang out under chairs, dog snoozes, one cat chases a fly that flew in from the door propped open in the living room, the other watches him play. The bed is made, and the sun and air are streaming into the bedroom. Cozy place, I live in.

One of my favorite things...how the flower boxes I planted (the only gardening I have done this year !) are filling out so beautifully.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Meditation Monday tonight (I need that today !!!), a Tuesday Artsy time at my friend Patti’s poolside paradise, a follow up appointment on Thurs. with the oral surgeon as my tongue is still partially numb as a result of my wisdom teeth coming out (it is improving every day though !) and hopefully, finding the perfect renters for us ! (Can you tell that this is on my mind a little ! Winking smile)

Here is a picture I am sharing

Taking time to smell the flowers…

Now off to the rock painting ! Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones !

Beautiful flowers (seriously!), beautiful words, beautiful you. Wishing you a blessed, lovely and productive day!! ♥

I sat in my garden today, overlooking the 'non'-work I did this year... temperatures are tropical and I wish I'd planted some flowers in Spring (but my budget couldn't handle...) I might plant just a few soon, seeing your photos, I miss having some extra colours in the garden! I keep my fingers crossed that someone rents the place soon!

Chel said...

BEAUTIFUL flower boxes- so lush! Sending you much love and also sending out a message to the universe to connect you and the right tenants ASAP! And I hope your tongue gets better very soon (does that mean you can't taste?! Oh, the horror of that idea!!) <3 <3

Lynn said...

The right tenant will come to you, I can feel it!!
