I have often thought that I might make a very good Hobbit. There are few things I enjoy more than sitting down in my nice, clean little home and listening to the sounds of the birds and the rain outside while I enjoy a hot cup of tea and some eggs or toast.
Today is very much so a "Hobbit" kind of day. Yesterday I was finally able to clean up some odds and ends that had been lying about and bothering me in our living room, kitchen and bedroom, and this morning I am enjoying sitting in my nice dark living room with a steaming cup of tea, while I listen to the sound of Northwest summer rain outside my windows. I've been wanting more sun these past few weeks (I am on vacation until August 1st, yay!), but God is so good to send us this cleansing, cool rain.
My indoor plants enjoying the cool morning air through the screen
My tea (green ginger) waiting to be all drunk up
Rain on leaves outside my window....
My silent wind-chimes, taking a rest
And my cozy little living-room, welcoming me in. Please don't mind our wrinkly carpet, or bed-sheet curtains. ;o)
I hope you have a restful day as well, or that you enjoy the business you will be experiencing today!
~For my Gratituesday post~
I am thankful for:
1. This cooling rain
2. Time off from work
3. Friends to chat with
4. The sound of silence
5. Time with which I may do whatever I want!
Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day!
