Right here, this moment, picture today completely unrelated, but that doesn't matter ;)
Feeling...grateful for the calming space I have created, outside my back door. I need calm. Today has ahead of it, new experiences and facing phobias, not mine, but I need to the one to offer calm, to be strong.
Smelling...lavender, there's a pot of it, just where I sit for my morning coffee. Helping with the calm.
Contemplating...our future, there's restructuring, and possible redundancies at my husbands workplace. I try not to contemplate for too long. I like calm too much.
Hoping...that I manage to ease anxieties today, that I stay calm. On a purely selfish note, for my beautiful greenhouse, it's been put on hold because of the above. I'm sure a greenhouse would help with being calm ;)
Tasting...fresh, strong coffee.
Planning...how I'm going to manage the next few hours in front of me, and next years improvements to the garden. Planning crop rotation, dwarf fruit trees, and a small wildflower meadow. Being a woman, I can multi-plan ;) some of my best planning occurs whilst drinking my morning coffee.
Touching...I love the feel of the cool breeze on my face, it's much cooler here today, coolness helps with achieving calm.
Listening...to the birds, the slight hum of the morning traffic, and for once, because Otto is still sleeping, I'm not hearing him barking at the magpies!
Now, calm absorbed, time to be strong. Hope your Tuesday's a good one,
Amanda :) xxx
