A Glorious Day

Waking up this morning at 430, enjoying the quiet of the early morning, listening as the birds wake, it’s such a peaceful time of day. It’s been a nice day, quiet day, but reflecting on the last week or two and the adventures I’ve been on, it’s been good for me. I’m calm and peaceful, content, that’s what nature gives me.
l had a great appointment with my specialist on Friday, it was uplifting, which is something being most specialist appointments are anything but.
Saturdays climb to the top of Blue Nose Mountain was exhilarating, my trips up to two beautiful lakes, incredible.

Ive also been spending lots of time writing my second book, which is somehow just flowing out of me, I’m excited about it, and so I booked myself a three day writing retreat for myself in a little rustic cabin, on a lake I’ve not been too, right on the water’s edge for me and my little dog, the end of August, a nice day drive from home. I am so very excited for that little get away, and hopefully it will be the perfect spot to work on some aspects of my new book.

Then this morning I had a wonderful video call with my beautiful step daughter and grandkids, a beautiful surprise to tell me I’m going to be an Oma again in January, I can’t think of a better way to start 2022. I am so very proud of her and the wonderful young woman and mother she is.

So yes it’s been a rather glorious day. My little garden is growing, although I’m not sure how it’s going to do with the heat, but I will do what I can. I’m eating cucumbers and tomatoes from my plants on my deck, so that’s nice nibbles to have. I’m enjoying and taking this quieter and more restful time, and using it in ways that are bringing joy while, allowing my body to recharge…..I have to quit draining that battery that’s called my brain.

That is awesome that you are getting fresh cucumbers and tomatoes. I love my garden or what is left of it. The heat here in the desert just killed many of my plants in the past week. Hope yours do better.

Have a lovely day and take care.
