Outside my window….. It’s a little cooler after a torrential rain this afternoon that flooded the Farmer’s Market. My heart was warmed by the way all of the farmers jump up and help each other when their tents are blowing or filling full of rain, and for the faithful customers who literally waded from booth to booth to get their produce today.
I am thinking...all I have to do over the next week, next weeks really, or maybe even next months but wanting to be fully present for K who is about to leave for college in a few weeks. And thinking that I have money in hand from my bonus to buy my dishwasher, but can’t even find the time to go look for one.
I am thankful for...the rain, for my friends, for my work which is meaningful, for my family, for homegrown tomatoes and peaches, for my neighbors and neighborhood.
From the kitchen….it still has a lingering scent of a great dinner. Egg muffins, sliced tomatoes, fresh cantelope and watermelon, blueberry lemon bread, and grilled fresh peaches with goat cheese inside.
I am wearing.. the infamous and ultimate “house dress”.
I am reading... Eat, Pray, Love….and I’m reading it as slowly as possible as I love it and don’t want to finish!
I am hoping...to get to bed by midnight. Chances are looking slimmer but it’s still a possibility.
I am hearing...some old Zoe Speaks music playing in the background.
Around the house...are piles of school supplies and new towels and other such things to take back to college.
Here’s a picture for thought I am sharing-
