This week has been a tender week for me. Twice this week, the rudeness of strangers aimed at me has left me taking their words and behaviors personally. I wish I wasn't so sensitive! Today is a new day, I'm gathering my mindfulness and caring kindness. Let's hope I move through this day with grace. Also, I am accepting myself as I am - sensitivities and all.
My sister is arriving this afternoon for a girls only weekend. We have been looking forward to this for a few months. You know very well, we will be knitting and talking. We have a few brief outings planned for both days. I'm excited!
The new pool liner is in place, the whole process took about 12 hours and everyone worked hard in the heat. I made lemonade for them hoping that would help. The exciting part was when the water was delivered, I felt like a kid in a trance by the gushing water.
My son said he was looking forward to fall which gave me license to wish for future seasons. I'm still noticing the goodness of these summer days. I spotted three herons at the pond on my way home from a haircut. That was a sight to behold! I pulled the car over and managed a photo of one of them who was ready to be famous on this post. The birds are still singing in the mornings, but the sunrise is a little later each day.
Have a great weekend!
