FOR TODAY
October 5, 2009

Outside my window... I see a BEAUTIFUL, crisp Fall day dawning

I am thinking... About my Dad who would have been 86 today if he was still alive. Love You Dad!

I am thankful for...
Seasons, cycles, the circular rhythms in a year


From the kitchen... I smell the homey aroma of homemade vegetable soup

I am wearing... My favorite "uniform"... jeans and a t-shirt

I am creating... A bracelet to give as a gift called "Te Amo" and a Fall Pumpkin Stitchery

I am going... To meet my friend for laughs and "therapy" over a cup of coffee and tea

I am reading... Voyager by Diana Gabaldon and wishing I could do a time travel of my own

I am hoping... To plant some Fall bulbs....iris', daffodils, and tulips

I am hearing...
The playful chirping of birds at my feeder, a snoring dog and small solar powered chimes ringing gently


Around the house... It has been so chilly the furnace is getting turned on, fireplaces cleaned out and the flannel sheets have been put on

One of my favorite things... Walking along the beach bluffs, photographing long shadows, skittering snowy plovers and if I'm lucky, whales feeding just off the shore

A few plans for the rest of the week: Making jars of Christmas Cowboy Cookies, finishing and framing my "Merry Pumpkin" stitchery, Djembe class, Going to see The Time Travelers Wife, seeing my endocrinologist on Friday, taking pictures.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...


This picture reminds me of circular cycles. The seasons passing from one into another. The wheel is a rusty Fall color and the irregularly shaped edges around the wheel remind me of a sun, dwindling at this time of year, creating shorter days.
