August 2nd Daybook Thoughts

FOR TODAY – August 2, 2012
(want to participate? Visit the Simple Woman’s Daybook!)

Outside my window…it’s partly sunny and I’ve been enjoying the butterfly that has decided to show love to my Parade roses. I always feel like my mom is visiting when I get to see a butterfly.

I am thinking… why must people hold so much hate? Just treat others how you would like to be treated, people! It might sound childish, but it’s as simple as that.

I am thankful… for all the loving, supportive people I am blessed to have in my life. You know who you are, and thank you. If you think it isn’t you? You’re probably wrong. Thank you (yes you) for being in my life.

In the kitchen… yummy gluten free chocolate cake is calling my name.

I am wearing… my favorite over sized, long sleeve t-shirt and cotton gauchos. Bumming it today!

I am creating… fanciful things in my head! I have a few projects I need to get rolling. Namely, a birthday card and a new painting.

I am going… to have to give in and have a piece of cake.

I am wondering… why we can’t all just get along.

I am reading… The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty much because I’d like to say I have read it when the movie comes out in December. It was one of my favorite cartoon movies when I was little. Right up there with The Last Unicorn!

I am hoping… I can just be the best me I can be, and that touches even one person at some point in a positive way.

I am looking forward to… oddly enough, that piece of cake. Haha!

I am learning… continually, patience and tolerance.

Around the house… I actually finished up my chores BEFORE sitting down! Somehow, dishes multiply while you are out of the kitchen. I think dishes are secretly like rabbits.

I am pondering… what to paint next. So many things in my brain!

A favorite quote for today… Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than just standing in a garage makes you a car.  This can go for any religion, and is right in line with Religion doesn’t make you a better person, you actions make you a better person. Treat people the way you’d want them to treat you, people! You get what you give!

One of my favorite things… cat feet. My little Charlie Bug has the most precious jellybean-like toes. Squee!

A few plans for the rest of the week: I want to get a new painting started, I need to put my toes in the ocean, and I need to make time for meditation every day, no matter what!

A peek into my day… my sweet Charlie Bug didn’t want to cooperate and share he toes today. But here’s her favorite nap position!

Charlie Bug decided she didn’t want to share he toes, but here’s her belly!
