Reading: Nicola Griffith's Ammonite. Just started it. Her book Hild is one of my all time favorites, so I'm excited to read this one. Here's a great article from Tor.com about Nicola and her work.
Listening to: Sounds of the neighborhood. I'm sitting out on the patio letting Maddie have a floop, so I'm hearing traffic, folks coming home, the occasional dog barking, the wind in the trees.
Loving: Taco Cabana's Limeade. Delish!
Thinking: What a nice day I had. I met up with an old friend and mentee for lunch. It was great to hear how successful she's become, and I'm so proud of her!
Feeling: Relieved that my blood pressure is back in reasonable land.
Celebrating: Nothing really. Just ever grateful.
Grateful for: My permanent answer to this is “everything”.
Weather: Nice breeze this afternoon, and I've noticed the mornings are getting cooler. Still hot, but not unbearably so.
Enjoying: Downtime after work. I love sitting out on the patio after work with Maddie. Hubs is a good guy--he gives me time to decompress.
A quote I want to share:
I remember my Gram always used to tell me when I said my prayers, to not ask of God but to thank him. She said "you don't need to ask, he already knows what you need". I never quite got that (doesn't he already know I'm thankful too?)--but this quote reminded me of it.
