… “today, 9:15 am, EST.

Soon, time to make/take notes for “Simply A Moment.” Hard to believe we’re halfway through the month of September! Today is also Ali Edwards’ Story Theme Day – MORNING! OH YES! [deep sigh]. Mornings – Love, Love, Love them. And I’m so grateful that today is quiet. I sit in my usual spot, at the table. Norman’s still sleep. He needs that. The past few days have been a challenge – his glucose readings high. But with the help of medication, and constant monitoring, he’s getting closer to normal. And that’s a good thing!

I took a Zoom class last night on Gelli (gelatin) plate printing and made not a mark ’cause my paints had all dried up! Frustrating (and also a bit embarrassing). I have access to a replay – so all’s not lost …and now I have an excuse to shop for new paints. Which leads me to contemplate today’s agenda – perhaps a trip to the office supply, Michael’s, a PSL – pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks and a salad – maybe even a chibata bagel – from Panera…

9:15 am! There goes the timer… taking photos for this post of the view before me. Saw Smoke – our resident feral cat – hopping along the back fence – grass is a tad too long and wet for her liking so she gingerly makes her way through. Note to Self: Txt Jason re time to cut lawn. Refresh tea after I finish reading today’s Simple Abundance essay. Light candle. Contemplate breakfast: decide on smoothie and avocado toast. Watching Ali Edwards monthly Story Kit reveal : MORNINGS. Thinking how perfect could that be?! Every month I’m reinspired by these story ideas and especially this month’s. I think Ali’s quote for this month: one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day! is just perfect. Guess I’d better wrap this post up and get a move on…soon the day will be over and I’ll not have made it out of the house. How was your morning today? I trust as pleasant as mine.   Cheers~
