Fresh, summer-white curtains streaming with sunlight.
Fresh, summer-white curtains still glowing with sunlight . . . at 10:00 PM!
A snapped picture of late-night sunshine illuminating white curtains turning out so sweet because of the miracle that my room was actually clean. . . an unexpected reward for a hot and frazzled day of organizing.
Hubby making me a cup of Green Jasmine tea and shooing me into the studio to paint a little and enjoy that last hour of sunlight.
I've been counting my blessings today and writing them down after neglecting my Gift List for a few weeks. It's amazing to feel the transformation in my heart as I watch the gifts materialize in loops of blue ink dancing across the page and filling the tiny squares of the graph-paper notebook. I've been letting the little things--the everyday frustrations and worries--get me down. But now I'm letting the other kinds of little things pick me back up again.
Now, just a few more. This list is really addicting; how could I have forgotten it for these last few weeks?!
Eowyn joyful and so "grown up" in the beautifully messy kitchen--she's helping me bake for the very first time (pancakes for Daddy on Father's Day).

Little Penelope curled in the wicker chair, just like a cat.
I hope you get a quiet moment today to curl up in your own favorite chair, and add up on paper a few of your blessings.
