Another Sunny Day!






Not that I'm complaining, but I thought it was supposed to rain today. I was bracing myself for it, after two gorgeous days in a row. But I awoke to bright blue skies, birds chirping and the sun shining down on us! What a blessing!

Another day of hiccups of life...but I'm reminding myself that "this too shall pass" and that fretting won't make it disappear- and that by doing so, I'm doubting Gods work in my life. So I'm trying to mellow out, be prayerful -not FRETful. Are those words?? I dunno..but they're fitting.

We're busy with school. Cleaning up this place-- surface cleaning first, but I have my Spring Cleaning List printed out (good ol' Martha Stewart has one listed every year) and I'm ready to roll. But I feel the pull of my camera-- wanting to capture every bird, bloom and blade of bright green grass of Spring. I feel the pull of local, unexplored parks and can hear the squeals of laughter and joy of my children playing there... I feel the call of the library, new books to savor in the evenings. And so I battle inwardly- diligently clean & stick to my guns on the homefront ~or~ go out and savor the day with my kidlets? Oh what to do, what to do.....

Here's what yesterday afternoon looked like..a snippet, anyway. And it's one reason I'm feeling this strong pull for fun & play today...
















What are YOU doing today? What's beckoning you to stray from the TO DO list of this fine Tuesday?

XOXO
