For today... I feel quiet. The end of my first week back at work, and I've been out most evenings too. I ache after yesterday's gym session. I'd like to stay in my dressing gown for another few hours.
Outside my window... the sky is grey, and the lilac leaves are starting to emerge.
I am thinking... that soon I must get dressed. The plasterer is coming, and I have a wedding to prepare for (not mine! But a friend's, this afternoon, and we are all taking food to share)
I am thankful... for a good night's sleep, and an hour to myself first thing in the morning
I am wearing... my purple furry dressing gown. It's the only thing I've ever bought new with a 'label' (Jasper Conran) but I had a gift voucher and just could not resist its softness. I've had it two years and it still feels as good as new.
I am creating... nothing much at the minute. Food for the wedding. Knitted socks. A renovated house. That's enough.
I am going... to a wedding, this afternoon. So many people have been involved in making food, decorations, music. It should be fun.
I am wondering... at what point in my life I'll learn to leave enough time for the things I need to do. Not today, clearly.
I am reading... Kate Humble's book, Humble by Nature. I idly picked it up in the library, not expecting much, but I'm actually quite enjoying it. The link takes you to the farm she's set up (I haven't got that far in the book yet!)
I am hoping... that soon we will have a fully functional floor on the landing. There's nothing like tiptoeing over the joists for several weeks to make you appreciate an ordinary floor.
In my garden... sticks, weeds, rubbish. Not the most glorious garden at the minute! But also lilac buds, catkins, flowers, rhubarb.
In my kitchen... dust, wood, bags to be put away, coats. Too many things.
A favorite quote for today... 'she woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses' (Kobi Yamada, I believe).
