In the quiet of the morning, I ponder on things.
How grateful I am for every new morning with endless possibilities!
How in every moment of every day there are pockets of joy to be found!
How much the love of my friends and family supports and lifts me up!
How petting and stroking my cat as she purrs calms and soothes me!
How the sound of a baby's belly laugh always brings about s smile and giggles to me!
How I am discovering that I am so much more than I ever imagined I could be!
How much I want to share the fact that people are so much more than they think they could be!
Oh there is so much more...but time to finish getting ready for work!
Brightest Blessings for a sublime day!

Didn't everything done, but enough to feel accomplished. All my veggies and fruit are cut up and prepped. I didn't get my chili done as I ranout of energy. I have been up a long time! *LOL* Laundry is done, cat is fed, kitchen is almost clean...again..no more energy.
I just watched "Muriel's Wedding," and loved it! I don't know how I missed it when it came...whenever it came out! *LOL* I really enjoyed it! I'm too tired to get involved in another movie, I will be going to bed soon, so I think I will watch a little"Vicar of Dibley." I always laugh with this show and it just makes me feel good! I love Dawn French!
Signing off for tonight! Nite nite and sweet dreams.

I was up at 4:30 and walked for 34 minutes! Not quite 1200 steps away from my 5000 step goal, I'm sure I'll make it up as I putter around home today! I actually decided to wear shoes today (FLY Lady would be so proud! *LOL) The ulterior motive however, is so I can keep my activity tracker on to count my steps.
It was a sumptuous morning for a walk. Cooler than it has been, there was a very slight breeze, the stars were still out and daylight start didn't make it's self known until about 5:15. The dark of the morning is lasting longer and longer and it pleases me to no end! I cut off some old jeans and rolled the hems up so it was a much more comfortable, not to mention cooler walk, then when wearing those heavy knit pants.
Had a healthy breakfast, visited SP for my daily routine, colored my hair, had a lovely shower, cleaned the tub, and now have my laundry on to wash. and it's only 9:30~MARVY!
Once I get my kitchen straightened up, I will begin my cooking for the month! I think I am going to like batch cooking! Then it is on to cleaning the rest of the bathroom as I continue to listen to "Sunday Baroque" on my Classical Music station. It is such a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning and I always hear a few new pieces in which to fall in love!
It is a beautiful day and I hope that everyone has as wonderful day as I am having!

I am wiped out after a wonderful day with a friend. We spent the day shopping...first Costco, then grocery shopping! It was (*and still is) very hot and very muggy! I spent a bit more money than I planned, but if I do everything right, I should have not quite a months worth of frozen meals! We spent 5 busy hour laughing, shopping, and having a bite to eat.
I forgot how much I love Costco! If we had not had to go regular shopping as well, I would have spent more there, but I didn't want anything to spoil in the heat. I found just the small sectional that is also a sleeper for about $1000....will have to save up! I really liked it! There were so many things I wanted, I was very proud of myself for only spending as much as I did. They had lovely strawberries and red seedless grapes. Yum! Also cutie oranges, all the taste not all the sugar...natural or not.! *LOL*
So, I am set for a while. I am going to make more turkey chili(it was really good!) I am going to try the slow cooker salsa chicken in the cookbook, as well as a casserole, and turkey burgers. Oh! I bought some mason jars to try the container salads! This should be cool! So tomorrow I am doing some batch cooking and freezing!
I walked a lot today but not 10 minutes in a row, so I got my steps in, but not my "workout." Between the walking, the heat, and the humidity, not to mention the lifting and moving of the boxed and well packed groceries, I got more than enough exercise and I should sleep really well tonight!
Tomorrow I am going to our fitness room and see if there is something else I can use to work out on. I may try the elliptical, the stationary recumbent bike and anything else that catches my fancy!
For tonight, I splurged on some apple ale(a six pack will last me over a month or two), Some lasagna and netflix. Then early bed...All in all a great day!
Bright blessing and sweet sleep!
