gratitude wednesday 7/2

July 2nd. Two websites getting ready to launch. Three press checks yesterday. Busy busy busy.

Raced out of bed yesterday with a better idea and jumped on the computer to make it happen.

Didn’t get to do my numbers to close out June and create a spending plan for July. As far as my finances are concerned, July begins today. I am not perfect.

My blog listed on Stephanie‘s blogroll. Wow. My first outside link that I know of. I feel so, so, I don’t know, happy. Oh yeah, that’s what that feeling is. Happiness.

My wonderful sister has narrowed down the search for places to stay in Hawaii. I get to have dinner at her house and hear the fruits of her efforts. Lucky me.

I am grateful for this life. For every bit of it.

Three hours of grilling and wokking and processing meat and corn and kale and chard and mushrooms and onions and snap peas and snow peas and romano beans. Summer abbondanza! (Abundance in Italian, which I don’t speak. I know and love that word, though.)

My card of the day: Ten of pentacles. Completion. Stability. Yes!

I am grateful. I am blessed. I am whole perfect and complete and I love life. And so it is.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.
