Today is a quiet day. I'm sure that many of you find this hard to believe since I live in one of the loudest, busiest, most crowded places on earth but here in my little corner of the city, it's quiet.

No work today. Some rain, some sun, some clouds. Crock pot bubbling. Mmm.

Today consisted of a bunch of activities, but they all flowed beautifully together and I never felt overwhelmed. I'm really trying to focus on mindfulness as I think this is the key to managing my anxiety.

Other helpful things: Louie...

Books (so many wonderful choices)...

A newly completed quilt, fresh out of the dryer (mmm, crinkly goodness!)...
I will take more pictures tomorrow, I swear (need better lighting and a good place to display the whole thing in all its glory).

On another note, I'm going to start putting a quote at the end of each post. Just a quote I like, maybe that is related to something I post about, but maybe not. Sometimes we need a little inspiration/motivation/contemplation.

What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what gets you out of bed in the mornings, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything. ~ Pedro Arrupe


  1. Love the picture of you and Louie. And the quote, well, I needed that quote today, let me tell you. And the quilt, holy cow. I just know it is going to be gorgeous. I just bought the Poppy line (before the fabric embargo) but haven't a clue what I will do with it.

    Will you let me know how "Lit" is?
