Today has been appreciatively quiet… as I guess a Monday holiday should be. I took a walk about an hour ago, choosing not to go to the pool (which opened Saturday) ’cause I thought it was going to rain. Yesterday, I started to the pool also…and turned around after about a block: the sky grew dark, thunder rumbled in the distance. When I returned home, the satellite TV signal had been lost – that’s how we know somewhere in the area there’s a storm brewing. Long story short: much ado about nothing!
On Monday mornings, the convener of my Friday Journal Club also leads a group session called Mindful Mondays. Both sessions are great ways to bookend a week; I really enjoy and benefit from the double opportunity to use my words and Jamie’s guidance and tutelage. I appreciate her insight and ability to provide comfort, clarity, and community. We gather from ’round the world and many of us participate in both sessions.
On my afternoon walk today, I saw and liked this photo of a sidewalk – in a way, it reminds me of a quilt block…but I’m thinking it might be good for the back yard. This is the year it gets attention: possibly a new deck and for sure, flowers, bushes along the fence, a tree or two…and a place for Hazel (niece Chris’ puppy) to run.
Aren’t these bright and cheerful? Enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend.
