Ordinary Day

img_4404

The blessings of an ordinary day: errands, ironing, petting my dog. Today I look forward to a day filled with puttering, reading and tidying up, and I feel privileged to have it so. I’ll put off worry, planning and disagreement to another time.

Trading

There’s snow up in the Adirondacks and it’s wicked cold! I suspect there won’t be many leaves left on the trees when I return later this week, so I’m sharing these two beauties this morning to tide me over while I count snowflakes and write in Lake Placid.

Planning

 

img_4292Yesterday, I found this little one contemplating plans for the next few months. I am doing the same; Christmas, kidney visit, surgery. Planning well is an art, and, it can be a compulsion. But, you know, the best laid plans……. I prefer to let life unfold as it wants, and go from there. It’s easier and definitely more fun!

Autumnal

Could she be more beautiful? Could you be more beautiful?

Beginning

 

img_4159Oh, blessed wheel, your turning brings me joy! I live in New England because I love the change of seasons, and here we are beginning a new one. Just the faintest beginnings but I can clearly see you. I am grateful for your singular peace.
