Outside my window... a beautiful, even though it's a little chilly, Savannah morning! I am thinking...about what project I need to begin. I feel a painting coming on, but I'm not sure where to start.
I am thankful...for friends. It's so true that friends are the family you choose. I am so blessed to have a friend who was willing to pick me up, then drive me to South Carolina when I didn't have another way to make it to see my grandmother on her 86th birthday. Thank you, Deanna!
In the kitchen...I made grits this morning! It's the first time Mary and Deanna have had what I call REAL Southern grits. They enjoyed them, so breakfast was a success!
I am wearing...jammies! Lay-around-and-be-lazy days are awesome.
I am creating...well, just writing right now. My brain is stewing something up, though.
I am going...nowhere unless I feel like it!
I am wondering... Oh, I am always wondering - well, worrying - about what's happening next. I try and try to live in the moment, but my pre-planning gene is too active sometimes!
I am reading... Spirited: Unlock Your Psychic Self and Change Your Life by Rebecca Rosen, Samantha Rose
I am hoping... to keep up with my "training". I found three or four FIRM workouts that I love, so I hope I can keep gaining strength (and eventually see pounds come off. They weren't kidding; after 30 it's so much harder!)
I am looking forward to... seeing what else we get into while I'm here in Savannah!
I am learning... to take every single thing moment by moment. Still. You'd think that lesson was easier to grasp.
Around the house...sleeping puppies. It's so cute when they dream and snore!
I am pondering...nothing deep. Just thinking about another cup of coffee.
A favorite quote for today... "Isn't it funny how, day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different." ~C.S. Lewis
One of my favorite things...spending time with friends!
A few plans for the rest of the week: The plan this week is to make no plans! It's a do-whatever kind of thing!
A peek into my day...well, this was from yesterday, but it still made my day. My best friends Deanna and Mary took me up to Aiken, SC for the day so I wouldn't miss visiting my grandmother for her 86th birthday! Not only did it make my day, but it was the best present they could have given her (her words!). I love this shot of her blowing out her candles. Nothing better than a day full of family and friends!
I will always cherish this shot! She was so happy when I made it to visit for her birthday, and then we were surprised again with a big family crowd for her birthday lunch! She said "I've had a wonderful day ever since my feet it the floor!"

  2. Thank you for letting us share Granny's birthday, too! You know I love ya' more than my luggage....

  3. Lovely that you can still enjoy your Grandmother. My last grandparent died when my kids were very little. And I just said goodbye to my Mother for the last time at the end of December. A big loss, but we have lots of memories.

    It is great to have days or weeks with few demands, isn't it?

    I enjoyed visiting today.



I love each and every comment! Thanks for taking the time!
