The weather this week has been so beautiful,
Temps in the 70's, clear nights, 
have brought the most amazing sunsets.
These were taken tonight on my way home,
Gorgeous colors, peaceful skies.

Peas in a Pod

 I went in to make my bed this morning, 
but how was I to disturb this?

 Daphne of course, had to go in for the attack,
she's such an instigator!  Toby didn't stand a chance,
he just lays there, what else is he going to do!?
But these two aren't phased. Tyler and Andy are
best friends, and where one is you'll find the other.

Don't you just love trips to the mailbox,when you find special treasures awaiting?
This week, I had such an experience,  and
love what I found there!
Marilyn, from Delights of the Heart
is a connoisseur of tea, and has tasted
this delight from all over the world.
She was kind enough to send me two
samples, which I am eager to taste!
Visit her blog, she is such a beautiful person
who writes her posts from the heart.
Through FaceBook, I was able to connect
with a dear friend from high school, who has since
made his mark in the music world, having been
nominated twice for a Grammy.
Chip sent me a package of 4 of his awesome cds.
The one he composed and played on is some
of the most beautiful piano music I have ever heard, it
was in honor of his mother.  She's a lucky lady!
I've enjoyed listening to all, and am also lucky to
own all these treasures, from two special people,
Thank-you both for making the world a brighter place.

Stormy Weather

While swimming in Robyn's pool today, we noticed some bad weather
 coming in from the east. As we were under severe thunder storm
watches, we decided it would be a good thing to get out!
The storms came in rather quickly, and for the next 
several hours, thunder, lightening and heavy 
downpours remained.
They just stopped a few minutes ago, around 10:30 p.m.
but are expected on and off through the night.
Myself, I love a good thunderstorm so it didn't
bother me any, I left the curtains open to enjoy
the view as the sky lit up continuously.
With Chip, Daphne, and my cats Toby and Andy
all huddled together around my head and at my side.
Ahhhh, contentment!

It Must Be True!

I get a charge out of watching my nephew Jacob's goats.
With all the pasture they have, thick, rich grass, clover;
they still prefer to stick their head through the fence.
So it must be true what they say,
"The grass is always greener on
the other side of the fence!"

Where Do You Go to Be at Peace?

Marilyn, in her blog Delights of the Heart,
 asked a couple days ago where you go to be at peace.  
To answer her, I will share my spot.
I have a prayer and meditation garden, that I planted
after the death of my sister Marti. 
It has become my outdoor chapel, my sanctuary 
where I go every morning to sit in its
 silence, and say my prayers and meditate
on the beauty that surrounds me.
The wind chimes along side me are my chapel bells,
and the birds and the breeze blowing through
the pines that surround me add 
a beautiful chorus, my own personal choir.
The stone in front of St. Francis was 
painted by Marti just days before her death,it reads,
 "May the words of my mouth
and the meditations of my heart 
be pleasing in your sight Oh Lord,
my rock."
Yes this is where I sit in peace, and
give thanks to God, pray for those in need,
and begin my day.
Where do you find peace?
