I've been swirling around out here in this blogosphere for awhile, and I think I've landed. Bear with me while I get all my colors and fonts in a row. It may take awhile. In the meantime, I realized I'm feeling a little bit that way in my day to day life right now. My son stayed at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Oklahoma this week, my daughter is enjoying her summer with friends all day, and I'm just kind of trying to find my bearings. My daughter and I did get to watch "Emma" yesterday and we got our nails done today. Fun, girlish things.
I sat outside for awhile, trying to catch a glimpse of the sun's warmth, but a cloud moved in. Looking up I felt at peace, as if I had found my bearings. Here is my cloud, with the sun shining behind, and my tall tree in my backyard. Simple things. . . Just what I need.
