That Sunday Feel

Sunday’s are for wearing what I want.

November calls for layers. Jeans with holes worn in them. Chenille house shoes trimmed in fur with real soles to step outside if needed. I’m pretty sure nothing I have on matches, but it feels good, like a Sunday.

Our favorite blankets folded and ready for the taking on a nearby ottoman. Soft lighting and a few more candles lit than normal. The decanter is filled with hot cocoa, alongside giant marshmallows for roasting. November looks good on you Sunday.

Pretty much love these memes.

Here’s to you and having that Sunday feel.

Quiet and Stillness

I want to listen for Him more.

He’s not loud, nor does He speak with a booming voice to try and rise above the noise. He doesn’t have to. For me, God whispers to my heart in the quiet and stillness.

It’s difficult to find quiet and stillness, but you can create it. There’s a lot to be heard in the quiet and you can see more clearly when everything is still. This meme aligns with this particular part of my journey.

Don’t miss Him in the quiet looking for Him in the loud. Hello Friday and November my lovelies.

A Peaceful Sunday

I posted this photo on Facebook.

What a blessing that these pictures reflect my actual life. The caption said, “Happy Sunday. It’s ‘be good to you’ day. Which should be everyday, but it’s a little bit sweeter on a Sunday.”

It’s how this day began.

Sunday has rapidly become my favorite day of the week. What I do today and the care I take, sets the stage for tomorrow. There are no plans for today and no ‘to do’ list that needs checking off. The list will be looked at tomorrow.

As I was backing out of Facebook, SC Lourie posted this. It watered my heart and describes this Sunday feeling spot on. I downloaded it to share with you. That’s what virtual friends do…We steal each others memes. 🙂

It reminded me of this quote I recently made note of. “Enjoy where you are on the way to where you’re going.” My hope is that no matter what you do today, you enjoy it.

Have yourself a peaceful Sunday.

Waiting for Autumn

Arms Wide Open

This meme is more beautiful each year.

My family is laughing at me.

I bought pumpkins and placed them on the porch. I’ve always waited for Fall to arrive and didn’t really do much to help bring it in. The weather forecast is saying it’s going to drop down to the 70’s at night this week.

Anything below 80 degrees in Texas is downright chilly! Below 60 degrees is freezing! 🙂

My daughter loves the glitter porch.

A couple of years ago, we began spray painting our pumpkins with glitter. You can buy a clear-coat paint and choose the color of glitter. We bought gold. It’s pretty to look at and it preserves the pumpkins from rotting.

I want to wait for my daughter to pick out the spray glitter, but in the interim, I can do some sprinkling.

The glitter fell into the crevices.

This year I don’t want to go from summer to Christmas. I want to savor every moment, even if it’s the slightest change in temperature.

Embrace a new season with your arms wide open.

A Happy Life
