… daybook ::22::

for today :: June  21, 2010

outside my window. . .  birdies tweeting, bunnies in the grass. & the sun is peeking over the mountains.

I am thinking. . . of how much I want to do a 'clean sweep' of my work areas. . .!

from the kitchen. . .  coffee . . . that's it so far.

I am wearing. . .  my favorite grey t-shirt & shorts. . . (but will be changing soon for work at the quilt shop).

I am creating. . . lots of sketches in my sketchbook for possible future projects(!)

I am remembering. . . Mom today. . . it is (was?) her birthday today. . . on the first day of summer. I'm missing her. . . a lot.

I am reading. . .  Spoken From The Heart  (Laura Bush). . .( & I am learning so much about the post Sept.11 days. . . wow.)

I am hoping . . .  that the part of my cold that keeps hanging around will go away!

I am hearing. . .  the local morning tv show in the background . . . (along with the birdies singing out the window!)

around the house. . . a new quilt just came back from my quilter. . . yippee! 

I am going. . . to be a 'shopgirl' today! 

one of my favorite things. . .  my Mom's smile.

a few plans for the rest of the week. . . pattern writing (still!). . . stitching. . . & cleaning.

from my picture journal . . .
Mom. . . from about 25 years ago - starting her day with her coffee! (. . . so that's where I get it from!!)

Hoping for a sweet start of summer for you!

That is a sweet picture of your mom, I know you miss her a lot. Hope you had a good day at the quilt shop.
Is it hot hot hot there like it is here?

Yesterday was my birthday. Even though we were out of town (fun getaway with my husband), I began the day reading your post as I do most mornings. The sweet picture of your mom brought tears to my eyes. As I've shared before, my mom is slipping away from me with Alzheimer's, but that picture brought back pleasant memories of her with her morning coffee. Thank you!
