watching… a hummingbird flit back and forth in the trees across the parking lot

currently loving ~ the rain, we have really needed it and I enjoy being cosy inside when it is storming outside

currently reading ~ simple abundance by sarah ban breathnach ~ gratitude gives way to simplicity – the desire to clear out, pare down and realize the essentials of what we need to live truly well. simplicity brings with it order, both internally and externally. a sense of order in our life brings us harmony.  harmony provides us with the inner peace we need to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us each day, and beauty opens us up to joy.
