>For Today…April 7th

>


Outside my window…the day has faded to night and the traffic light is blinking at me from the corner.

I am wearing torn up jeans and a tee, did more painting today!

I am thinking… how wonderful it is to have family and friends that support your dream. You know who you are, and I love you!

I am thankful for well, see above!!

From the kitchen… hmm. Wasn’t thinking about it until I read that! Now I’m hungry.

I am creating… every day. I don’t have to finish the project or painting, it’s the process. Creating makes me feel alive and happy. It’s my drug and I love it!

I am reading… Duma Key by Stephen King. It’s really making me miss the beach.

From the learning rooms…my hubby had a speech today in class! I wish I could have seen him, but I know that would make him nervous. I am SO proud of him, especially for his speech class. I can not tell you enough how much I fear/loath/avoid-at-all-costs speaking in public…or large groups of people. Ok, pretty much any social situation.

I am hoping…I can keep this train on the tracks!

I am hearing… the TV, both my and my hubby’s typing. Yeah, we’re that couple.

I am going…to take this one day at a time. I deserve this!

Around the house…laundry,dishes,general tidying…and creating, though I wouldn’t call that a chore! 

I am remembering…to tell myself that I AM worth it, I AM valuable, and I DO deserve good things. I shouldn’t be so hard to believe that stuff, right?

Quote to commit to memory… “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ~Gandhi   ….and I am SO working on that!

A few plans for the week… getting some necessary things out of the way so I can get more paint on my hands and in my hair!

One of my favorite things…spending a lazy afternoon with my hubby ♥

Photo for Thought… Today was beautiful, and warm enough to go check out the lake, post-winter. Since the weather is warming up, but the water hasn’t, there was an odd ring of fog surrounding town all day. It was clear and beautiful right in town, but by the lake, a defined wall of fog. We walked along the water, so I decided to take a shot or two. 
     Also, I finished a mixed media piece today that I was pretty excited about., so I’ll share that too! Thanks for stopping by my blog, have a great night!
You can usually see for miles and miles, but today, you couldn’t see the water until you were right up on the edge!
There’s still some ‘burgs in the lake, and the birds were taking advantage!
