Outside my window...it is kind of greyish, white-ish and definitely too cold for May 18th at 43 degrees ! Those maples leaves and the green are something though !
I am thinking...that I am missing friends and family and even David who only left for work an hour ago. I often get this way after a trip back home. It is kind of lonely here sometimes...
I am thankful for...the phone and my unlimited long distance plan ! It is Victoria Day in Canada and everyone will be off and home on a Monday morning to chat !
From the kitchen...radishes ! I guess they are in season somewhere nearby because they have arrived in the grocery store in all of their glorious red ! Love them with just a little sea salt - like red and white crunchy candies !
I am wearing...my red nightgown, my green El Naturalista clogs and my glasses. Sexy, huh ?
I am creating... space for new experiences to come into my life.
I am going...to get my 6 month supply of new contact lenses and I think the craft store next door just may be calling my name...can you say "retail therapy" ?
I am reading... Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman for the ump-teenth time. I saw the movie on tv again recently and the book re-surfaced soon after to dive into again.
I am hoping...for sun and warmth to make my flowers grow and my heart feel better.
I am hearing...a large crow cawing in the treetops nearby. What's the message, Mr. Crow ?
Around the house...there are dust bunnies I have named Dusty, Sneezy and Grey.
One of my favorite things...my white Elmer's Painters opaque paint marker with the Ultra Fine Tip - a joy to journal with !
A few plans for the rest of the week: meditation tonight, and tomorrow, a meeting at Barnes and Noble with a new lady who responded to the ad my friend Lois and I placed on Craig's List for arty women available during the day to hang out and do arty stuff. I need a local community of artists that I can play with and see face to face !!!!! Desperate times call for desperate measures...
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
This is Singer, our 20 year old cat, curled into a nest
on the daybed in David's office to keep her old bones warm,
but to be close by the human she loves best. What more could you want
in your old age ?
Grace in small things... Happy Monday - don't mind the mess !
