If the rest of the day follows this morning, it is sure to be a restful and event-less one. Of this I am thankful! Grey skies have blanketed my surroundings and the rain patters on making me feel the need to stay-in and sip tea. A simple pleasure, as the chalkboard above reads. Bodies need these respites.
All that I may accomplish today may be ~
|found via nursery|
I may boost myself with pillows and make the couch a writing studio.
I will send a note to a friend attached with photos ^. Forget Me Nots that were planted after a Mother's funeral. They now bloom in profusion and remind me each time of that woman.
A note of thankfulness to friends for their years of friendship
An envelope filled with quiet "I am here" show of support while some are in the throes of sadness
Fill your home with love and gather your loved ones to you...
I may entertain myself with the stack of magazines staring at me from the table side
The recently mailed film from Netflix sounds appealing
A pot of chicken noodle soup needs to be started
As lovely as all of this day sounds, I will be missing the work that I love - gardening - as each day now I have a partner working side-by-side with me. Her name is Clarabelle. She is a gardener's delight. She is that chicken-neighbor-from-next-door that I've talked about. Somehow, she & I have become a pair. As I dig, and pull, and rake and plant - she keeps right at my side. I get the fact that she's not just seeking my companionship, she's letting me do all of her dirty work.... then she searches the newly tilled dirt for a snack! I am loving every minute! Chickens are good for a chuckle!
A lovely rainy day, indeed !
