Ordinary Practices

The ordinary acts we practice everyday are the ones that cause me the most joy.. As I am sipping my coffee and peering out the window... I see and feel a gentle breeze flowing through the tree branches... With a forecast of 87 degrees today and 92 degrees tomorrow.. although the feel of fall is in the air... the temps still say it is summer... Enjoy... Our close friend I spoke of on earlier posts that has been fighting cancer is not doing well and is hospitalized... My emotions are somewhat up and down as I am traveling through this day as my heart feels heavy....
Verse for today...
"When I said, my foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Lord, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul" psalm 94:18-19
Many of my neighbors that surround our area are spending days at the Defiance County Fair with family... Several years ago I would have been included in them but life has journeyed along as only thoughts for reminders today... As i travel through the hours of today... I plan on taking time to insert a few pleasures... A piece of home-made fresh peach pie being one of them... The peaches we purchased at the orchard yesterday are just scrumptious.... With desires of keeping the day calm and peaceful, I will proceed with everyday chores and enjoy the mere fact that I am able to complete and enjoy them...with little treasures gifts along the way... Wishes for your day to be blessed in every way possible....

Raining again today with temps in the mid 60's. We so need the rain! Today I am crocheting with some Holiday Yarns. Their colors are beautiful with the Traditional to Victorian to Jewel Tones!!
Thoughts of Christmas sort of gives me a lift today!
Have a Great Week!

Such a sweet little white kitty peeking through the window pane. I know how it feels to be in such high temperatues, yet have the feeling of fall in the air. Such a strange feeling.
Have a lovely week.

Dear Marietta,
So very sorry to hear about your friend.
Peach pie sounds scrumptious.
I know I take for granted way to much my health and my ability to enjoy simple quiet days at home.
May your day be blessed.
