Ahhhh. It is so quiet this evening. No fog horns. No seals barking. Just quiet. The temperatures were in the 80's today, and the evening is just cooling off. I was telling my co-workers today that it was the kind of day where you want to sit in a chair in your backyard, with a popsicle and a magazine. It was so beautiful and clear.
It is nice now that we are transitioning seasons. It stays light longer in the evening, until about 8pm. This has been nice as I have been gardening after work this past week. Tonight, I got to have dinner with my pastor and friend instead though. It was a special treat in a busy workweek, and it was just enjoyable to sit and talk about big ideas, theology, books, and life.
Now everything in the house is quiet. I came home to lots of kisses, of the puppy variety. Then I snuggled with my little fur girl, until she decided to turn in. It is funny to have a dog that puts herself to bed. LOL Afterwards I looked at blogs and became more inspired to stitch faster in hopes I could do all thebeautiful projects that I fall in love with online. Now I get that last few minutes of quiet to reflect on the day, count my blessings, read a few passages in my Bible and then settle into my book. I love ending my day this way. I think the part I enjoy the most is the counting of blessings. I start small and then end with the big items. I usually run out of time before I run out of blessings. There is so much to be truly grateful for.
May the day be filled with blessings for you, too!
