For Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Outside my window... It's dark already & I can hear the traffic as is flows up & down the street.
I am thinking... Not much at the moment. Just relaxing & getting ready to have a nice last night off before starting my week of work.
I am thankful for... All the wonderful, strong women (and the few guys, too) that I've met through blogging. You all enrich my life, inspire me & give me love & support when I need it. You help me Thrive.
From the kitchen... The smell of koffee beckons me out of the bedroom whenever my cup runs low.
I am wearing... Just a pair of Halloween undies, complete with ghosts all across the butt & a big "BOOOOOO".
I am creating... Shelves to hang on my wall. I'm learning to paint marigolds so I can paint them on the shelves.
I am going... Nowhere tonight. And I'm thrilled.
I am reading... The Queen of Wands by Judy Grahn (again). Her words wrap themselves around my heart... flow through my veins & become a part of me. They glow through my smiles & flow down my face in my tears. She breaks my heart & sews it back together. She writes words of power & magic.
I am hoping... That this headache I woke up with goes away...
I am hearing... Traffic outside my window, the sound of keys tap tapping as I type & Battlestar Galactica coming from the living room, where my womyn wonder sit enraptured. Dan Fogelberg serenades me softly from my pc.
Around the house... The kitties are snoring, the dishes & laundry patiently await my attentions... But I'm hiding in the bedroom for just a wee bit longer...
One of my favorite things... Is waking up early, feeling fully rested. Making tea & sitting on my porch with Macha, just relaxing & being happy. Tea & kitty snuggles make my world go 'round.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I start my seven nights on tomorrow night, so I'll be working this week. I have a test in my A & P II class on Thursday. I want to work on my garden plans & work on the shelf I'm painting. I want to find ways that I can Thrive, especially during my work week. I want to get my house in order... when my house is in disarray, I feel in disarray.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
"Longer than there's been fishes in the ocean,
Higher than any bird ever flew,
Longer than there's been stars up in the heavens,
I've been in love with you."
Someday, I'll play this for Britt on my guitar & sing it to her... Sometimes I sing it to her when we're on long car rides & she's fallen asleep... But very quietly, so as not to wake her. ^-^
