My Daybook goes nicely with Thankful Thursdays




Outside my window...
It is raining.  It has been all night.  A nice , slow steady soaker.  Outside the window the darkness lingers, gray and still.  The kind of day when even an early riser like myself stays just a little longer in bed.

I am thinking...
How thankful I am for my mother inspiring in us a love of music.  Soundtracks I have down thanks to her, and Nat King Cole.  I wish I knew my classical as well as she does but I am learning.  She only recently shared that her knowledge of classical was a gift from her own parents that she treasures.

I am thankful for...
More than I can ever express.  My precious, stubborn, thoughtful wonderful firstborn daughter who helps me through each day in so may tiny ways that I often forget to thank her.  For our youngest and her loving ways and her busyness and enthusiasm.  For my beloved, to whom I have been married, apparently, almost 19 years.  (it took us about 10 minutes the other day to remember the year we were married)

                  From the kitchen...
Nothing.  Not a sound.  Though I am aware that it is a bit of a mess and that I will very shortly need to put a second pot of coffee on for Mike and Rowan.

I am wearing...
In truth, the same old thing I always wear.  I need to loose weight to get back into anything else.  But I do love my favorite, old blue jeans and my black cardigan.  They suit me.

I am creating...
A knitted and felted envelope style purse to put my Nook into.

I am going...
Absolutely nowhere, just the way I like it.  I went to the library Tuesday to pick up Jenna's books about archaeology, her new passion.  
 
I am reading...
My now heavily annotated, The Americans:The Colonial Experience by Daniel Boorstin, (yes, still, for those of you paying attention) and the new Elizabeth Peters, River in the Sky.  And the totally cool thing is that I borrowed the digital version from the library website and loaded it onto my NOOK!

I am hoping...
That my back, which is threatening to go out, doesn't.  That my sister's last chemo goes well this week.  That my plans with my BFF don't fall through and that the BP oil spill somehow, miraculously, doesn't do the damage I know it has.

I am hearing...
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - Farewell of the Tsar, from Tsar Saltan - Philadelphia Orchestra on my Live 365 internet radio.  The cat sitting on my mouse pad purring like a furry fool.  The small noises of my husband getting ready for work upstairs and the rain plunking on the deck out the door behind me.
 
Around the house...
The dog hair situation is once again out of control and I will have to vacuum once the kids are up.  I should have woken them almost an hour ago but I am selfishly enjoying the morning for a few minutes more. 
 
One of my favorite things...
Silly though this may be, I truly enjoy having my coffee in a mug that suits my morning mood.  I have many to choose from and I do so every day with care.  This morning it is a tree frog with huge eyes that says, "Got Caffeine?"

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Thursday Park Day is out, the rain took care of that and I am not ungrateful.  Hopefully I will get to grocery shop at some point.  And my BFF and I have plans for tomorrow that I am looking forward to immensely.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Beautiful post. You seem to be in a very contented place. That is awesome.

Thanks for stopping by.

Poppies. I think of Dorothy and the poppies that make her sleep. You piece most certainly didn't put me to sleep, but the pleasant pace of you ruminations calmed me as I read. Made it all seem much better handled when going at it with a calm mind. Enjoyed it.
