For Today…August 17, 2009
Outside my Window…Today was one of those gorgeous, late summer days that are warm, but not uncomfortably so. Now, at 10pm, there’s an autumn chill and dampness to the air. I noticed wispy swirls of clouds when we took the old doggy for a walk this evening.
I am thinking…that this has been an eventful summer.
From the learning rooms…I’m continuing to learn more about health and nutrition.
I am thankful for…the safe birth of our granddaughter Claire Renee, born to daughter Sarah and her husband Justin just this past Saturday.
From the kitchen…I went all-out this evening and prepared a time-consuming but scrumptious entrée: Three Cheese Teaser.
I am wearing…an olive-green denim skirt and cream colored peasant blouse.
I am reading…Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon, www.newtrendspublishing.com. This fascinating book examines the original diets of populations which had/have good dental and overall health. It makes sense to me that we should glean wisdom from previous generations. I’ve noticed that the author uses current large-scale scientific studies to substantiate her points thus far.
I am hoping…to go visit my husband’s dad and mom in Inverness, CA this week. Look this locale up on Google Earth, and check out some of the sights, such as Drake’s Bay and the Pt. Reyes lighthouse. Folks have posted some great photos and videos of this beautiful area.
I am creating…this blog post.
I am hearing…one of the Google Earth videos of the wind blowing in Pt.Reyes. I was once told that this is the windiest place on the west coast of the U.S.
Around the house…My husband and youngest son did some major brush clean-up around the yard today. The bonfire embers are still glowing.
One of my favorite things…is having the time and energy to serve my family a special meal.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…We plan to leave on a jet plane on Wednesday. When we return, it will just be in time for the first day of school.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…
Our daughter Laura snapped this picture of her sister Sarah and Sarah’s brand new baby daughter, Claire.
Laura also took this picture of Sarah and her husband Justin with little Claire.
Are you content to linger on the simple things of life…then join me in taking a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those of us who are focusing on simplicity…the beauty of the everyday moments around us. That is my vision for this idea!
