Patio Bliss

I just spent the last minutes of my evening under a canopy of twinkle lights. We put them up over the front patio today. It took $26 for the pole and eyebolts at the top, 30 min to set the pole, and about an hour climbing up an down the ladder. It is blissful. Nathan just went in to start his dialysis treatment and I’m going to do my meditation before going in.

May you have peaceful and blissful experiences in/at your home. May you love your days mostly. May you have excellent meditation moments. May you find things to appreciate easily.

Om Shanti

Good dog.

I arrived home early today. A slow day at work meant heading home just after lunchtime. My goal was to finish my taxes. I nearly did, with only 2 things left to complete tomorrow.

While I was working on finishing that, I opened the window for the beautiful weather to filter through. Upper sixties and sunny left my pets wanting sunshine as much as I did.

Buddy sat in the window and Zen alternated between trying to look out around him and trying to hug me. Eventually I gave in and helped Zen up into my lap. It was cute, so I wanted to share pictures.

May you find completing your taxes to be easy even when self-employed or a contractor. May you have ample time to spend enjoying glorious weather this year. May you get to snuggle with your pets regardless of their size. And may you have plenty to be grateful for. Above all, may you know that God loves and supports you in all that you do and that any desired healing is full and speedy.

Om Shanti

Mindful Monday

I’m sitting by the fire in our comfy recliner having a mindful moment of appreciation. Despite all the work hours I am finding enjoyable moments with my family and in my home which I have worked so hard to get. I wanted to share some of those moments with you, including kids lounging with me to watch cartoons in our bedroom (Sunday and before bedtime rituals in the evening) and Katherine posing for the camera after she climbed onto the kitchen counter and claimed Nathan’s hat. There’s some adorable, but somewhat obnoxious, pets mixed in there too, including one very large spazy dog.

May you have good moments of appreciation. May you find enjoyment in your days. May you have quality time with your family, even if TV is what instigated it. May you enjoy your life mostly. May you love the critters and kids around you. May you be mindful of the moments that make everything worth while.
