I've had a somewhat slow week which means there have been no appointments, nowhere that I have "needed" to be and no one who has needed me for anything. Sitting back and thinking about what I've accomplished this week made me laugh because truly, I don't care if I accomplished anything or not. I know that I got out of bed every morning and I ate food and I drank liquids. I spoke to people and people spoke to me. I breathed in and out. I looked with my eyes and I heard with my ears. To be honest, I'm getting extremely weary of needing or wanting to feel that every day I have "done" something. I have done things. I won't say they are noteworthy or newsworthy but they existed and I did them. That's enough. Did I find joy in my pocket this week? I did and maybe that's more satisfying than looking at a list, making ticks beside "projects" and saying, "hey, look what I did this week".
I had butterfly visitors in the garden...a couple of Monarchs and this beauty who only came for awhile but was happy to sit quietly while I moved ever closer to have an "I can almost touch you" view. (and yes, I talk to them...they like that you know).
I laughed to the point that I had tears over a funny video sent to me by a friend.
I laughed in a much similar way as I shared something funny with the friend of one of my son's.
Summer rain that fell like a mist was a pleasure to be out in without an umbrella, even if I was squinting my eyes as it was falling into them. And wet clothing dries.
A 2 mile walk that was long over due and being able to feel the pull in my leg muscles with each step I took as they carried me forward.
Being given the opportunity to guest post at Vision and Verb and feeling a sense of community.
Sales in my Bella Rennie shop and acknowledging that people see my work and enjoy what I create as much as I enjoy the creation.
Sharing thoughts and ideas with a friend over life, self discovery and meaningful ways to be in this life.
My children who come and go and how happy I am when they return whether it's been for a few hours or a few days. This week has been a bit of a revolving door.
A drive on a very hot day to Panera to bring home some of those delicious cinnamon crunch bagels! (and the good friend who got me hooked!)
I'm linking up with Monica for Joy Pockets...see what joy others have discovered this week!
