Wednesday Blessings

“When people refer to ‘Back in the Day,’ it was a Wednesday. Just a little fun fact for you.” ~ Dane Cook

It’s been a rough ride this past week or so. That’s why I’ve decided to gift myself an ordinary Wednesday!

There’s a gentle rain falling, and I started my day by staying in bed, listening to the morning birdsong and the sound of rain on the tin roof.

Now I’m sipping lemon tea and blogging, before the day unfolds.

There will be writing this morning, early, at one of our favourite cafes in Bangalow.

And then a morning of craft, catch-ups, cups of tea and friendship at my local CWA. (Country Women’s Association for those of you not in the know)  Lunch will be shared at the craft tables, and there will be plenty of laughter, chatting and moral support.

Home for a nap and then some time in the garden, and tonight I’ll be cooking a lamb roast and a lemon delicious pudding for dinner, and inviting an elderly friend around, whose wife has recently gone into care.

I’ll finish off with a long soak in the bath, some meditation time, and then hopefully a restful night’s sleep.

For me it’s a day of rich blessings, of celebrating the ordinary, connecting with people I love, and taking some time just for me.  You can’t ask for more than that.

I hope you get to spend a little time doing things that fill you up too.  Much love, Nicole ♥ xx

  2. Sounds like a perfect day. Love the sound of rain on a tin roof. My day will be spent catchingbup on the chores I have let mount up. Enjoy your day and thanks for sharing with us.

  3. How funny, it’s raining here, too (East Coast USA). I, too, love the birdsong and rain on the roof. I took a relaxing bath after scraping up heaps of pollen off the road for the trash/yardwaste pile. And then the cat and I relaxed together awhile. 🙂 Blessings!

  4. What a beautiful day ahead. Enjoy 🙂 xo
    By the way, what is the name of those gorgeous pink flowers in the vase in the altar photo? They are divine!

    • Fiona I know you asked about these flowers very long ago, but I could not resist! Don’t know whether you ever found out either, but they are dahlias! Very easy to grow!
