Simple Saturday morning pleasures

There is something wonderful about having a morning where you can just....be.  Be in the moment.  Be a bit slower.  Be aware of the creativity.  Be present.

The sun is shining and the lake is gleaming outside the window as I gaze out.  I've got a cup o'joe steaming next to me and Pandora streaming in the background.  The Noodle is happily chattering and "baking cookies".  She's been at it for the last 45 minutes.  Peace.
I've got a mountain of ironing to do, which crazy as it sounds, I love to do.  Something relaxing about smoothing away the wrinkles, feeling the warmth, smelling the clean laundry smell, and letting my mind wander and float.
Peace out.

Hello Monday

Happy start to a brand new week.  There's a little more warmth in the sun and a little less snow on the ground.  As I walk around the yard I see that the daffodils are just starting to unfurl their green fronds and the crocus are adding their bright jewel colors to the gray landscape.  We're half-way through March and spring is becoming more and more evident.  That's definitely something to smile about!

Hello to longer days, brightness and lightness.
 Hello to thoughts of gardening and pins that will turn into reality (hopefully!).
 Hello to our church's production of The Three Trees...the Noodle is singing in the choir and has been belting out the songs.
Hello to new recipes to try out...Jamie Oliver's mac-n-cheese w/cauliflower?  Spicy Thai noodles?  Yes please!
Easter is right around the corner...let's hit the ground running :)
